Hoppy Boy IPAHoppy Boy IPA
Notes: 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.

Light yellow lager-ish color; extremely see-through.

Frothy head & lacing.

Nose is of corn & lager...not a ton of hops coming through. Not looking (or smelling) good so far.

Tastes of awful macro lager. No hops, no nothing. Decaying corn? Drain pour.

Hey hey Ray whatdya say, my old homie Ray used to work here and he turned me on to this beer first. Pours somewhere in between yellow and amber, small 1/4" white head. Aroma was a little bit of pine and bitterness.

Taste was the usual heavier than pale malt, some crystal, the stuff you run into all the time. Not a ton of hop flavor, sticky and resinous. For its name, there isn't a ton of pine to the flavors. Another average caramel malt and C hop ipa.

Pours a light coppery color with off-white head. Caramel malt, light citrus, and funky pine notes on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with more malt than hop.

A: 3.75 - Light amber color with a large initial head, though fast fading.
S: 3.75 - Decent hop aroma, citrusy, with faint malt.
T: 4.0 - Taste is a great balance between hops and malt--which is what this beer is about. Clean taste, yeast-wise, with most of the flavor being a solid citrusy hoppiness (though bitterness isn't real high) and nice, very slightly sweet malt.
M: 3.75 - Light bodied, neutral texture
O: 4.0 Good quaffing beer.

Drank straight from the bottle. Obviously not the best to judge aroma, or color. I believe this is the quintessential IPA before the style drift too over. Elegant in its smoothness. The British ex pat can still session this but maintains the hop bite.
