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.

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.

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a Sam Adams pint glass.

The beer pours a hazy orange-gold with a 2-finger head that quickly compacts to a thin, foamy top that leaves some lingering lacing.

The aroma is pretty muted: some grass and citrus and an earthy note underneath.

The taste is not bad. Bright an bitter up front from the piney hops, a little spice and citrus with a lingering piney dryness. Not detecting much from the malts.

I like the mouthfeel on this beer, medium, a little sticky and even slightly creamy. This is an easy drinking IPA but it lacks complexity.
