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.!

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...

Pint from leaf all seafood in Logan airport. Quite hoppy but very clean no sediment at all. Little bit of onion and resin. Really well done. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

De Wormtown Brewery(U.S.A) esta American India Pale Ale de nombre “Be Hoppy” con 6.5% ABV, esta cerveceria asentada en Massachusetts fabrica esta exquisita cerveza de balance hacia el amargor que Ratebeer tiene calificada con 95/100 en estilo y en el general con 96/100. En apariencia posee una amplia corona de espuma muy cristalina y de excelente retención, esta presente en toda la vida de la cerveza, de perlas compactas y algunas amplias en la parte mas superficial de la cabeza de esta bebida, el color es un bonito amarillo turbio con destellos naranjas, cuerpo de aspecto mediano que esta muy bien para el estilo. El aroma es sumamente intensa y de carácter frutal, evidentemente los lúpulos son los que se sobreponen de forma definitiva dando notas a mango, mucho mango de hecho, durazno, cierto carácter cítrico, naranja dulce, aromas pináceas mas discretas, en la misma intensidad olores herbales que solo están de fondo, las maltas son casi inapreciables solo aportando cierto dulzor haciéndola muy apetecible, es tan fuerte el aroma de esta cerveza que prácticamente desde que se destapa se pueden percibir algunos de sus atributos. El sabor es muy bien balanceado y no es una típica American IPA con astringencia por lo amargo, los sabores dominantes si son los de los lúpulos y al inicio si se detecta el amargor pero es muy tolerable debido a que las maltas y el dulzor que proponen siempre están presentes equilibrando la cerveza, los sabores a los que hacen alusión los lúpulos es a mango, durazno, maracuyá, ligero carácter cítrico a naranja, sabor pináceo, el dulzor que tiene es parecido a la miel, deja con sensación resinosa las paredes de las mejillas, final medianamente seco y retrogusto amargo y mango, muy rica IPA para los que gustan de cervezas amargas, tiene todos los elementos que se desean en el estilo y un plus de esos sabores frutales tan marcados que se pueden encontrar en otras cervezas de la misma categoría pero no empleados de la misma forma dando ese acabado final que la hace bebible pero al mismo tiempo no sale del estándar.

12oz. bottle from brewery: This one pours a hazy golden color. There is about a finger of a white head on it. Good aroma. Citrus and pine hops are predominate. The taste is good. A slightly subdued bitterness. Pine and citrus notes. A bit of a grainy malt behind it. This is nice!

UPDATED: JUL 19, 2016 The aroma is overripe fruit with floral hints and bread crust.It?s a brilliant, yellow shade with some dense, white head.It?s pretty well balanced on the palate with a leaning towards more bitterness. Mostly citrus with a dry, herbal touch.

Bottle, 355ml. A clear yellow beer with a small white head. Aroma is of mild floral hints and hops. Taste is moderately bitter with some carbonation and astringency. Light to medium bodied, easy to drink and with a malt aftertaste that pairs well with a hoppy finish.

bratschepeter (43) - Abilene, Texas, USA - JUN 11, 2016
On tap at Enrico’s Brick Oven Pizzeria (Sturbridge, MA). Color is a light yellow-gold, consistency is mostly cloudy; solid white head that barely fades, significant sticky lacing on the side of the glass. Aroma is quite faint, just a hint of piney hops - but oh my how the flavor explodes! Strong notes of pine and grapefruit, some wood and an agreeable light bitterness. Very pleasant carbonation, nice lingering hoppy aftertaste. Very drinkable, an absolute winner.
