Reddish-gold hazy unfiltered brew. Pungent aroma of citrus, floral spice, and grapefruit. Decidedly bitter palate with a medium light body. Flavors of hoppy grapefruit give way to a dry finish. Our Hop Back and Double Dry Hop process ensure aromatics that are in your face coupled with an obscene amount of kettle hops that should make all bitter beer fans and hop heads love Wormtownís Be Hoppy I.P.A.!

annunz123 (942) - Taunton, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 22, 2015
Fruity orange/citrus aroma with some pine resin and caramel. Very, very bitter flavor, with tangerine and pine. A little caramel/apple sweetness in the finish. Pretty good, but the bitterness was a little over the top by my standards (and I love bitter IPAs). Iíd recommend this highly to an IPA lover but avoid otherwise.

12oz bottle via BA trade. Poured a hazy light straw with a smaller foamy white head. Aroma of grains, straw, light grassy hops, pineapple, apple fruit skins. Flavor of dry rinds, apple skins, grains and toast along with some lemon rinds. Medium to fuller bodied with strong carbonation.

tfontana (303) - Fremont, New Hampshire, USA - OCT 24, 2015
Keg pour at NH Brewfest. Appearance is nice yellow pour with mild sparkle, trace head with minimal lacing. Aroma is pine and resin hops. Taste is dominant moderate to heavy pine/resin bitterness. Palate is light bodied with thin texture and very bitter finish. Overall, didnít get the citrus/floral/grapefruit but otherwise as described: "decidedly bitter palate." Bitter hop heads will really like this but not my cup of tea.

Scopey (10026) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 27, 2015
Bottle thanks to Andy. It pours cloudy bright orange with a decent white head. The nose is soft, juicy, sweet citrus, pineapple, orange, peach and bread. The taste is crisp, clean, bitter, floral, peppery spice, grapefruit peel, cracker and bread with a dry finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Pretty refreshing and drinks pretty easy.

Once upon a time I hunted this beer. That beer is no more and so with this new review Iíve finally come to terms with the evolution of a longtime favorite. Iíve been buying this since the early days of the Be Hoppy bombers. Found each release a touch different, but delicious. Loved the cans... the YELLOW cans! I gave them a few releases with the new brewer and brewery to dial this back in, but they havenít and presumably wonít as this newer profile has been surprisinly consistent though much less enjoyable. So without further complaint, hereís my review of the new Be Hoppy. This applies to the Black Cans and any and all draft releases and of course the new??? six pack bottles. Donít even get me started on them reverting to bottles, but small ones, sigh. The aroma is surprisingly malty, with vague hints of caramel malt and very subtle floral/earthy hops. The flavor is similar with some decent bitterness but pretty much zero hop flavor beyond the initial fairly meager grapefruit. The beer feels very thin, lacks any lingering bitterness or flavor in the finish and seems to have parted ways with the layer of well balanced roasted barley. This beer used to be borderline chewy, aromatic and flavorful, but now lacks all three...

Draft. Gold with thin soapy white head. Citrus and tropical with a little honey sweetness and light malt backbone. Very bright. Medium body with spritzy carb. Very nice.
