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.!

UPDATED: DEC 8, 2014 Iím a big fan of this beer. Released fresh nearly every month, the flavor is hard to match or even compare to. Solidly bitter with a very unique and enjoyable blend of hops. The June bottling of 2013 may be the best beer Iíve ever tasted. Update - The cans various releases 2014: So far the cans have not been as impressive, flavor-wise as the bottles were. I honestly think the hop blend has changed, specifically the unfortunate use or increased focus on Falconerís Flight. I cannot pretend to like Falconerís Flight...

Decent hop and citrus aroma, forward hop flavor but slightly disappointing overall finish. Fairly high rated beer locally, but didn't quite live up to the hype.

mkgrenwel (598) - North Shore, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 20, 2014
Hazy pale yellow with a white head. Decent lacing. Aroma is straight lemon peel. Flavor follows very lemony. A bit of candied sweetness, but generally very subdued malt. Very light with a strong creeping sharp bitterness in the finish. Somewhat aggressive, astringent hop oils push through the light flavors. Body is a touch thick and chewy as compared to the delicate flavors. I love the bright lemon but feel like the rest of the beer is unfocused.

Berard (413) - Salem, New Hampshire, USA - NOV 7, 2014
Draft. Pours a hazy burnt yellow with a thin white head that lingers. Nice citrus aroma over light carbonation. A decent ipa but a bit one dimensional. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Came to Springfield, MA on a business trip and was a stranger in a not so strange land. Found this gem of a beer on draft at the hotelís sports bar. Murky yellow full bodied IPA with malt sweetness and a moderate citrus bitterness. Weird name but a top notch IPA.

On tap at Sturbridge Seafood: Pours amber with a nice one-finger white head. Aroma heavy citrus, grapefruit, and a little floral. Taste is a bit sweet up front, but then is immediately flooded with a beautiful citrus hop bouquet. Medium body, slightly sticky mouthfeel. Excellent IPA.

Can shared by a friend. Pours clear amber with a thick beige head. Sweet malt and citrus aroma with grassy hop notes. Piney and citrusy flavor with some malt before a grassy hop finish.

Thanks to jlindros. Beautiful head on this beer. Itís a solid mass of white foam that sticks around for a long time and leaves solid rings marking each sip. The liquid is a cloudy golden mass of color. I donít put a lot of stock in appearance, but this is an attractive IPA. Aroma has a nice dose of hops backed with light malt and some good mineral character. The hops are sweet and pack a lot of citrus. Tangerine, grass, pine, grapefruit, mint, pear, green grape. Itís a bit restrained and doesnít have the huge juiciness of some new IPAs, but whatís there is quite nice and itís all sweet and rather mouthwatering. Moderate bitterness. Quite dry. More mineral flavor. Some light, doughy malt. Good flavor from the hops. It never gets blandly bitter, which is more and more becoming a bright line test of hoppy beer quality for me. Tangerine, pine, grass, pepper. Some herbal and spicy hop notes. Light on the palate. Very easy to drink. Normal carbonation. Some hop oiliness. This is an excellent IPA. I think it would be even juicier fresh, and if not, they could use the same basic formula to pump that up. This is right in the same space as the new wave of top hoppy beers.
