COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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 Wormtown’s Be Hoppy I.P.A.!

Tap. Pours a murky yellow with a decent head. Some strong citrus flavor up front and a lingering astringent bitterness. OK overall, but would have been better with less of the astringency.

A great clean and floral hoppy aroma. It had a mostly hoppy, but balanced flavor and very smooth and drinkable. This is an ideal IPA.

Zgpt (31) - Jamaica Plain, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 12, 2016
One of the best IPAs I've ever had nice and lemony very aromatic, cool label pours with small head good rich palate. Good citrus bitter and sour early aftertaste and pleasant mild zest after. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

malrubius (2585) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - SEP 11, 2016
Bottle from Table and Vine. Bright gold with chill haze and nice head and lace. Awesome lemony grapefruit floral aroma. Lemony grapefruit and pineapple fruity sweetness with just the slightest touch of honey and grass. Assertive but not overwhelming citrus and spicy bitter dry finish. Medium-light body with soft mouthfeel and fine carbo to accentuate hops. Pretty FUCKING EXCELLENT. Definitely a top IPA. Bought one for my wife, too, but, alas, she is not here right now so . . . don’t tell her.

asheft (2960) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 10, 2016
Bottle from some place in Randolph, MA. Resinous, pungent cat pee and pineapple aroma with faint base malt in the background. Almost clear dark gold under a persistent, white flannel blanket. Sweet base malt flavour at first, followed by bitter, pungent cat pee, tropical and stone fruit hops at an assertive level. Medium light body, medium carbonation, crisp. Lingering bitterness.

Yellowish pour with a white head. Aroma of citrus and floral hops. Tastes of light citrus, slightly bitter and not too sweet. Wormtown made a classic IPA and will drink again.

Hazy gold beer, tidy white head. Palate is light and dry. Reasonable fine carbonation. Mildly sweet pale malts. Floral bitter hop dominates, a modicum of orangey citrus. Trace of lemon before a light dry bitterish finish. In some ways quite English. Standard stuff.

Bottle at Chris and Ruths place after GBBF 2016, Wednesday. Clear goldrn beer with a decent offwhite head. Hoppy citrus aroma, pine, grapes, floral, some peach. Hoppy peach and citrus flavor, grapes, peach, some pine apples. Quite refreshing IPA.

thepatrickman (835) - Durham, New Hampshire, USA - AUG 11, 2016
16oz can. This is exactly what a well-executed IPA should be. There’s a ton of hop aroma, a moderately-high, firm bitterness, and a restrained malt backbone. It’s less hazy, juicy, or sweet than some of the more famous Massachusetts breweries (I’m looking at you, Tree House), but it has the "classic IPA" profile nailed.

50belair (3379) - Florida, USA - AUG 10, 2016
On tap at BYB. Yellow pour with a white head. Mild grapefruit hop bouquet. Pine hop notes dominate with just a whisper of grapefruit. A bit unbalanced with little in the way of malty notes. Average body and mouthfeel.
