Style: American IPA

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.

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.
