Notes/Commercial Description:
Hoppy Boy India Pale Ale is Twisted Pine Brewing Company’s flagship beer. With a rocky ivory head, star-bright golden orange color, and massive hop aroma, Hoppy Boy is the quintessential American IPA. Citrus, resin, and a hint of malt not only greet your nose, but also your taste buds, while a smooth, lingering bitterness leaves your palate refreshed with every sip. Hoppy Boy IPA is a perfect marriage of malts and hops that is as bold as it is balanced, and thus exemplifies what American craft beer is all about.

I enjoyed it. A little too malty, couldn't have too many of them.

Pours a murky orange with a foamy orange-beige head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Small streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, earth, herbal hop, and slight citrus zest aromas. Taste is much the same with malt, earth, citrus zest, and slight metallic flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is an above average beer that is decent all around, but it's pretty forgettable in terms of straightforward IPAs.

Poured a medium brass hue with a two finger rocky white head. There was good retention and lacing.

The smell featured a moderate herbal hop and soft caramel.

The taste offered a moderate caramel with a muted herbal hop.

The mouthfeel was typical of the style.

Overall a tasty, yet downplayed, IPA.
