Brewed with Pearl Pale malted barley and a supporting cast of American specialty malts that play second fiddle to massive amounts of Amarillo, Chinook, and Citra hops. No fewer than 4 other hops were used thru the end of the boil, hopback, and dry hop process. Hazy golden in color. Intense piney citrus aroma. Comparably intense hop flavor follows favoring floral grapefruit notes, background malt appears before being washed over with finishing bitterness. Medium light body, clean somewhat dry finish.

UPDATED: JUL 13, 2014 This slightly bigger version of Wormtown’s Be Hoppy stands alone and rates in a bit behind it’s younger brother’s best effort, the June 2013 release. The aroma is earthy with some citrus and a bit more subdued and soft than I’d expect. This beer is also a bit more crisp, has less body and a thinner, less creamy mouthfeel. The flavor is a bit more malty, and actually works well with the choice of hops and bitterness level, providing a different balance point and overall flavor.

Really great and very similar to be hoppy with a bit more tropical fruit and lemon/grapefruit but less resin and malt character. Both great beers but this one is more fruity.

bomber, fantastic IPA. Wormtown is really the unknown brewery for amazing ipas. Strong pine and citrus flavors with a lightly sweet and very well balanced body, not overly bitter, just flavorful. AWESOME!

tap. not bad, but i prefer be wormtown hoppy IPA, which fortunately is much more readily available. pleasant citrus and tropical fruit hop aroma. touch of resin. toasted, caramel malt backing is a tad too sweet. budlight drinkability rating is much higher for be hoppy IPA. also, be hoppy IPA comes across as more hop forward in a good way than be hoppier ipa as the malt sweetness of the be hoppier seemed to dominate the hops a touch. good though.
