Twisted Pine Hoppy Boy, originally uploaded by adambarhan.
A – The beer pours with one and a half fingers of off white head on top of a copper colored body with good clarity. The head settles fairly quickly and leaves little lace.
S – Musty/fruity hop aromas of pineapple, mango, and onion. Some caramel malt in the background.
T – Pine hops up front with some bready malt. More pine hops in the middle with a hint of mango and some toffee. Finishes with moderate bitterness and sweet caramel malt as well as spicy pine hops.
M – Medium body, moderate carbonation, and a slightly sweet finish.
D – Pretty nice, certainly drinkable enough. The hop aroma is enjoyable but a bit subdued while the flavor is kind of one dimensional.
