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.

A:This pours a nice dark gold with a 2+ inch head into the new IPA glass. The glass, at 19 oz., holds the whole pint can and head perfectly.

S: Nice citrus/pine notes in the aroma.

T: OK, taste is subjective and this particular IPA doesn't seem to get a lot of love here but it just works for me. Very nice pine and citrus notes with just enough bitter to enhance the taste but not burn out the taste buds.

M: Mouthfeel is light medium to medium. I think this is, in part, due to the lower, for an IPA, ABV.

O: This is one of my favorite beers. I've kept some in my fridge at all times since I first discovered it. In part, this may be due to the fact that I can get it in a 16 oz. can, my favorite take home beer style.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a 16 oz can into a pine glass. Nice Orange -amber color. Big white head, nicely carbonated with good head retention. Bands of lacing on the glass. Nice looking beer.

Aroma provides a whiff of hops bitterness. Not much else...no pine/citrus/floral etc.

Taste is ok. Good hops bitterness without any signature hops flavors. A malty balance at the end. Certainly a thirst quencher and good with food but not a memorable IPA.

Mouthfeel is a bit thin, it is still crisp and bitter.

Overall, not bad. Provided in cans so it is portable everywhere, Tastes ok but not memorable. Good average IPA.
