Twisted Pine Hoppy Boy ....

Tonight I will try a new brewer for me, Twisted Pine Brewing Company.  The beer is a Hoppy Boy India Pale Ale.  A coworker brought me this beer since I am a fan of IPAs.  Twelve ounce bottle.  The web site shows 6.2% ABV and 65 IBUs.

This beer poured with a VERY thick head; one that was a little creamier in color than bone.  Beer color is a light to medium yellow, with a little orange, and somewhat cloudy from a lot of fine sediment.  Good amount of carbonation in the glass.  Pleasant, mild aroma - hops and citrus, slightly sweet.  Carbonated/malty mouth feel.  The taste is malty, with a vegetal/grassy quality.  There is some bitterness, but it seems to be more pine-like than citrus.  The aftertaste leaves you with a little of that bitterness.  Not your standard IPA flavor profile, but interesting.
