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.

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 I’ve finally come to terms with the evolution of a longtime favorite. I’ve 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 haven’t and presumably won’t as this newer profile has been surprisinly consistent though much less enjoyable. So without further complaint, here’s 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. Don’t 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.

On tap at Hops & Vines in Williamstown, MA. Good bright aroma, yellowish gold in color. Solid hoppy flavor that lingers a bit. Very good, a bit astringent, but another great West Coast style find in the East Coast!

Wow. 12 oz bottle. Pours pale as a true IPA should with unfiltered haziness. Perhaps they held back on the crystal Malt? Malt body and hop bitterness nicely balanced. Slightly astringent. Nice floral and citrus nose. A favorite! I will be buying more.

deyholla (8594) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - AUG 12, 2015
On tap. Pours a clear orange with a gold hue and a white head that dissipates slowly to the edges and laces. Aroma has a good amount of citrus supported by sweet grains and a hint of grass. Flavor is similar with a bright, slightly bitter citrus note with grass and light sweet grains backing.

At Theadore’s: pours hazy gold with a white head. Aroma is citrus and a light bit of tropical fruit with little backbone in the aroma. Taste is moderately hoppy. Mostly quite fruity. Nice aftertaste. Pretty good IPA.

Pours a hazy copper from a tap. Aroma of freshly used gym shoes pretty much sums it up for me. A syrupy sweet fruity hoppiness, somewhat oily mouthfeel.
