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.

Appearance – This one has a big, white head, too foamy actually, with a thin, light orange, weak=-ooking body.

Smell – It’s pine alright and little else.

Taste – It’s namesake resiny pine is there but no malt whatsever. This beer is very one-dimensional.

Mouthfeel – This is a little better than light-bodied with some mild bitterness.

Dirnkability – Not a bad ale but nothing of substance.

On tap at Acme Bar and Pizza in Rochester, NY.

Pours a clear amber, with a half inch head and not much lacing.

Smells piney, without any other real discernible aromas.

The tastes include pine and other earthy hop flavors, some toasted bready malt flavors, and a bit of an alcohol sting, which is weird considering the 6% ABV.

Medium bodied, crisp mouthfeel, less than drinkable to the aforementioned alcohol sting.

Not one of the better IPAs I've had. Pass.
