COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed with an abundance of hops. Once we started hopping this beer stopping was impossible. Emphasizing Amarillo, Horizon, Summit, and Glacier hops with support from 5 other American varieties. Hops were added in every conceivable part of the brewing process. Whole leaf in the mash, hop forwarded (lautered through whole cones), hop backed, first wort hopped, kettle hopped with pellets and extract, and dry hopped in the fermenter and brite tanks. No expense was spared to bring you HOPULENCE!

Bottle. Pours a golden color with white head. Mild hop aroma. Strong bitterness, but not too astringent. OK overall.

czar (5723) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 18, 2015
sample at mondial de la bière 2015 - mtl. hazy very light golden with a reviving off-white cap, minmal retention/lacing. spicy oranges - peppery clementines, C’s plenty, toasted maltiness, some crust and caramel, peppery melons, minty resin, flower cones, sulfur. light carbonation, medium body - oily; balanced grassy-spicy-piney finish. old-school-ish and far from an (h)opulence. o-k.

(Mondial 2015) Pours a clear golden with a thin white head that leaves good lacing. Nose is of caramel and dank hops. Taste is of caramel, fruity and moderately bitter. It is also a little boozy, sadly. Body is medium, carbonation moderate and the alcohol is a bit distracting and not hidden well-enough. Overall a fair DIPA (not sure when that bottle was opened so time might have been a factor here) but their other hoppy (and less alcoholic) offerings are better.

PhatB420 (731) - Pittsfield, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 21, 2015
Baby growler into a taster. Pours a yellow oaker with yellow hay highlights. Frontal hop aroma, juicy, then bitter. orange, grass. Taste is phat juicy hops, full frontal dipa here, orange peel and hop aromatics are in full grace. Benevolent bitter and dry pleasantries engulf the plattte. Sensational dipa fresh from brewery.

22oz bottle, big thanks to AJ for sharing. Hazy orange color. Thin off-white head. Ropes and bits of lace. Fantastic malt aroma on this guy, I really dig it.. Biscuity, honey, mild caramel, kinda cake-like. Good complex hop aroma too, pretty unique. Not overly assertive, bitter, or citrusy like many modern examples, this hop aroma is kind of melony, passionfruit, maybe a hint of tropical (mango/banana). I’m thinking that glacier is adding some unique layers to this, that’s a cool hop you don’t see too often.. Light to moderate sweet taste, moderate bitter. Super-smooth for a DIPA of this strength, very balanced. Medium to bigger body; lighter, kind of soft carbonation. Somewhat dry finish. I have to respect the malt here, that was my first impression, and I respect doing a different DIPA than the thousands already out there. Really enjoyable DIPA to sip on or swig on. Looking forward to seeing what else these guys do.

Pine stone fruit and mango aroma and flavor hops. Slight malt sweetness to back it up. Alcohol heat behind it. Medium bodied and easy drinking a great dips.

Even though I’m not a fan of overly hopped beers, I am a fan of Wormtown Brewing . This is the second product of theirs that I’ve had, and just like Be Hoppy it is a real hop bomb, and thus a bit of a stretch for me. That said, this is also a fine, well crafted brew. Be Hoppy is infrequently available here in Northampton, Massachusetts, less than 50 miles from the brewery, but the good news is that they have built a much larger facility to meet the increasing demand for their products. Hopefully coming soon to a store near you!

Holdwine (1131) - Beertimore, Maryland, USA - OCT 29, 2014
Very interesting. Not the outright hop attack the label predicts, but a well mannered thoughtful expression of a very complex hop union. Quite nice. Lots of citrus and piney notes as you would expect, but still nicely drinkable, even at 8.5%. Great job.

malrubius (2101) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - OCT 10, 2014
Bottle from Table & Vine. Copper with chill haze dense off white head and lotsa lace. Citrus hop and bready caramel and pine aroma. Medium toasted malt nuts and with some peachy syrup knocked out by a very assertive woody and citrus lingering bitterness with some lingering caramel. If I was a brewer and able to make a good IPA, I wouldn’t make this style. Still, very good.

Pours a hazy dark orange with a white lacing. The aroma is pungent citrus, orange and pineapple. The flavor is rather bitter. Pretty awesome and a complete surprise.
