Bottle from Table and Vine. Light golden color. Thin off white head. Body and texture is on the thin side. Not much going on here. Especially compared to the Zwickel I just had.

Bottle shared by Willrunforbeer, much thanks!m Bottle date of 4/26/2016 "From Russia With Love" Nice aroma of cocoa, dark fruits, char and maybe anise.

The flavor is respectable. The body and texture is pretty nice. Balance is also very respectable. The 10.5 percent ABV (labeled as such on bottle) is mostly hidden. I like this pretty much.

Wormtown Be Hoppy IPA
The aroma is overripe fruit with floral hints and bread crust. Itís a brilliant, yellow shade with some dense, white head. Itís pretty well balanced on the palate with a leaning towards more bitterness. Mostly citrus with a dry, herbal touch.

Wormtown Be Hoppy IPA
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.

Wormtown Blonde Cougar Summer Ale
Light lemony bread aroma. Hazy yellow body with a thin crisp white head. Ligt bitterness. Has a subtle lemon bread taste. Tart and refreshing. Seems more like a mild Belgian Witbier than a Blonde ale. Suitable for a warm summer day.

Wormtown Be Hoppy IPA
On tap at Enricoís 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.

Wormtown Punxsutawney Pils
On tap at VCBW Festival 2016, pours a hazy pale blonde with a small white head. Aroma birds out grassy hops upfront with a crisp crackery malt. Flavour brings out lots of crisp crackery notes and grassy hops. An authentic, crisp grassy pils that is highly quaffable. Quite nice.

Wormtown Hopulence DIPA
On tap at VCBW Festival 2016, pours a clear golden blonde with a medium white head. Aroma brings out piney hops upfront, followed by crisp crackery malt. Flavour brings out lots of piney hop oils, hop resins, and dry biscuity malt. Loads of hop oils, with a lightly sweet finish. Really nice.

Even though it is 95 degrees and humid, and I havenít gotten around to putting in the AC yet, when I spotted this brew in the store cooler, I had to give it a try since Iím a Wormtown fan. My bottle gives the ABV as 10.5%, which seems more accurate. This is a good, smooth and tasty stout with the alcohol well hidden. Pours with not much head and is heavy on the dark chocolate flavor and a bit sweet as well. Smells like a fudge brownie. But it is not that sweet, pretty well balanced, actually. Hop presence is muted. Medium to heavy body, rich mouthfeel and pretty dry as well. My idea of a good winter warmer.

APPEARANCE- golden yellow, slightly turbid. Big foamy head wonít quit! NOSE- tropical fruity nose. Heavy on the citrus, maybe a bit bit of papaya. FLAVOR- good ipa. Citrusy hop with a bit of bitterness at the end. NOTES- One of the 80%ers. I can see why it rates so well.

Wormtown Be Hoppy IPA
Aroma: lots of citrus and hoppiness up front; Appearance: clear, golden pour with white head that dissipates quickly; Taste: follows nose with nice balance of citrus and hops; a bit more on the bitter side; Palate: seems more heavy-bodied than most IPAs with long, bitter finish; Overall: very nice IPA. Would buy again if available and in the mood for a more bitter brew.

Draught at Lord Hobo, 3/22/16.
As the premier Imperial Stout critic on this site, I was pretty hard on this one and lo and behold....
Dark ebony body, undetermined clarity. Large tan head atop fades to ring.
Dry roast, bitter chocolate, ash and very light vinousness in the nose are all great things. No booze and not a hop influenced Imperial...Awesome. Iím in. Breathing lends treacle, tar, some base malts emerging to add caramel and milk chocolate, lightly.
In the flavor itís equally dry and shows tons of dark chocolate. Light fruitiness and plentiful ash keep things very dry, but no hop bitterness ever comes to unbalance it, thankfully. The base malt is enough to balance the bitter roast (though it still tends dry and bitter). Tight carbonation and a fairly malty, somewhat bready texture. No alcohol in flavor either. Very pleasantly surprised here.

Wormtown Be Hoppy IPA
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, itís 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.

Wormtown Be Hoppy IPA
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.

Pours a dark brown from a bottle, thin khaki head, minimal lacing. Aroma is overwhelmingly coffee, vanilla. Flavor is an amazingly sweet coffee/cola, itís basically soda. The carbonation is similarly soda-like. Very weird and not good. Strike 2 Wormtown.

Bottle. Iím not enamored with this particular style, thus the usual dilemma about rating the style rather than the brew in hand. Aroma of coffee and dark malt, color a medium dark brown, body light, flavor pretty coffee heavy. This is a pleasant, drinkable coffee porter, but nothing exceptional.

Wormtown SNAFU Rye Wine
Draught at the brewery, 1/30/16.
Deep magenta-ruby colored beer has a strong mahogany tint to it with moderately-high clarity and a beige head that is well-retained.
Sweet and boozey nose shows rye-like fruitiness, vanilla, caramel and toffee malts and a fair amount of fruitiness from the yeast. Low on the hops with some light citrus and herbal qualities.
Again, like the rauch bock, just too sweet to be able to enjoy it. The malt flavors are definitely there; red fruits, bread and caramel, spicy rye...but itís heavily sweet and chewy and quite fatiguing. Some dryness breaks on the finish, lightly earthy and crusty bread, but itís nowhere near enough. Alcohol is apparent, though not rampant, while no flaws are noted.

Wormtown Rauch Bock
Draught at the brewery, 1/30/16.
Deep auburn-crimson body has a tan element to it, good clarity and a beige head atop with moderate retention.
Smoke in the nose is somewhat salty, lightly ashy and quite fruity, though thatís certainly a combination with the strong maltiness present. Tons of vinous notes with toffee, vanilla and buttercream. A bit of more dry ash/char-like character on the end, but mostly quite powerfully malty and richly smokey.
Heavily sweet in the flavor, with a huge burst of caramel-toffee, heavy melanoidins and toasted malt notes. By the time you feel the smoke, itís just too much, adding strong, salty flavors, rich campfire and light bacon. Alcohol, more toasted malt and a light ash are the only things attempting to balance and they fail miserably at doing so. Way, way, way too sweet. Nothing wrong with a malty doppelbock, but this doesnít have the requisite acidity on the finish to balance. Creamy, near-syrupy texture with medium carbonation.

Wormtown Pale for ALS
Draught at the brewery, 1/30/16, listed as "Ales for ALS" but the abv is the same so I assume itís the same or similar enough.
Medium copper-golden body has a small but fairly well-retained white head atop. High clarity.
Some stone fruits, light citrus and a touch of pine in the nose signify a pretty straightforward blend of New Zealand and American varietals. Malts provide light honey and biscuit and seem well-attenuated from the nose with no alcohol or flaw.
Great texture, with tight carbonation, a moderately malty mouthfeel and good attenuation. Lush fruits and floral notes combine with lemon and orange while thereís a touch more of a pine bitterness on the finish. Sessionable, but still quite interesting and quite hoppy. No flaws or alcohol noted.

Wormtown Berliner Weiss
Draught at the brewery, 1/30/16.
Mostly clear, pale white grape juice with a fleeting white head.
Definitely lactic acid but at the same time, lots of cider and vegetal qualities. Very sparse malt behind it consists of crackers, primarily. No alcohol.
Lactic acid, dry cider vinegar and light vegetal notes parallel the nose, with a bit of saltiness, moderate carbonation and zero maltiness nor even much wheat character. No major problems but just so very minimal on any characteristics other than kettle souring and cider.

Wormtown Buddhaís Juice
12oz bottle into glass. Bottled 1 26 16, nice. Pours a deep orange Amber with rustic tones. Nice creamy head, light lacing. Aroma of grapefruit, grapefruit peel, orange juice, grass, citrus all over. Taste of grapefruit everywhere, melon, hops, more grass, weed, bready granola, pine, Amber malt tones. This is great. Abv melds nicely, a tart bitterness in the end. Smooth all the way.
