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.

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.
