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.

Duchammer (158) - Eagle river, Alaska, USA - MAY 1, 2016
Can poured yellow with a white head aroma had the hop tropical funk from either citra or Equinox with also nice floral notes. Taste was a lot of earthy floral notes finishing piney resin dry finish.

drsandman (890) - New York, USA - APR 15, 2016
Fresh can, 1 week old. Pours a clear gold, medium head. Aroma is pine sap, floral / spice, piss, caramel, pithy citrus, grass. Flavor has a bunch of dry citra, some floral spice / bite. Light end of medium body, but very bitter w/ a lively dry hopped kick. Quite enjoyable.

jbruner (3727) - Athens, Georgia, USA - APR 3, 2016
Can thanks to bigda83! Pours a hazy golden orange with thin off-white head that leaves moderate lace. Aroma of resinous piney hops and mild caramel malt. Taste follows, clean and easy for an IPA, a hint of oxidation. Solid stuff.

ClarkVV (5138) - Allston, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 25, 2016
Draught at Lord Hobo on 3/22/16 and at Castle and Elephant again on 3/24/16.
Besides the fact that you should never go to Elephant and Castle, being a horrible, horrible bar, this pours a gently hazy, lime-tinted gold, with a medium-sized white head showing moderate retention.
The nose is quite lovely, actually, being very reserved and lightly fruity. Citrus zest, light pineapple and some floral characteristics are intertwined by biscuity/crackery malts with fresh yeast and light minerality.
In the flavor, it’s very juicy, with lots of white grapefruit, meyer lemon and soft floral notes. Good attenuation and ample carbonation which is mostly engaging. Great stuff. Dry, very juicy yet still seems light and elegant for an IPA. No heavy bitterness (quite low overall). Very solid offering which put them on the map for good reason.

superspak (4239) - Michigan, USA - MAR 25, 2016
Got in a BIF from tasterschoice62. 16 ounce can into tulip glass, canned on 3/7/2016. Pours lightly hazy deep golden yellow color with a 2 finger dense and fluffy white head with good retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice dense soapy lacing clings around the glass. Aromas of big grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, peach, mango, lemon/orange peel, citrus rind, light pepper, pine, light honey, cracker, bread, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of bright/dank citrus/tropical/pine hops and light-moderate pale malt notes; with great strength. Taste of big grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, peach, mango, lemon/orange peel, citrus rind, light pepper, pine, light honey, cracker, bread, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Good amount of pine/citrus rind/spicy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, peach, mango, lemon/orange rind, pepper, pine, cracker, bread, and herbal/floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a while. Incredible complexity, robustness, and balance of bright/dank bright/dank citrus/tropical/pine hops and light-moderate pale malt flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance and zero astringent hop flavors after the finish. Good amount of dryness from bitterness as well. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, crisp, sticky/resinous, and lightly grainy/bready balanced mouthfeel that is awesome. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is an outstanding IPA! All around awesome complexity, robustness, and balance of bright/dank citrus/tropical/pine hops and light-moderate pale malt flavors; and very smooth, crisp, and easy to drink. A highly enjoyable offering.

Bottle to shaker. Nose has the expected hop with some dank whiff in there. Golden and surprisingly clear for an unfiltered IPA. Leggy white head. Palate is typical clean IPA. Could have a touch more punch, but decent beer.
