22oz. brown bottle. Bottled on date Nov. 2011
Served in a SA perfect pint glass.
Pours a hazy gold color with a full 2" white head and lots of webby and trailing lacing.
The smells are surprisingly mild considering the name. There are plenty of Pale Ales with more hop-forward noses. That said, the citrusy, floral and resinous hop smell is very pleasant. A faint peppery spice is noticed as is a bit of an alcoholic fuminess.
The flavors are where this IPA shines best. Juicy grapefruit, lemon zest, tart orange and spices explode in the mouth with a West Coast-like abandon, yet there's a subtly sweet caramel malt
and very light Graham Cracker-like breadiness that tempers the hop bite in a very pleasing way. A little alcoholic heat warms the back of the throat and can be noticed on the breath rather quickly.
Although this is an edgy and hoppy IPA, it's a fairly fluid and wet brew that invites a few large gulps.
Tasty, drinkable IPA...nice!

Wormtown Brewing Co. - Be Hoppy, poured into a DFH Spiegelau IPA glass.
Look - Pours a slightly hazy pale straw with a big soapy head that dissipates quickly. Tons of lacing,
Smell - Weed, Brussels sprouts, and piney hops.
Taste - Nice, light on the malt here and hoppy as hell, nice juicy citrus and bitter pine, some MJ taste, which I definitely enjoyed.
Mouthfeel - Light-medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Crisp, bitter, and drinkable. Not boozy.
Overall - Good brew, tasty and refreshing. Definitely a hop head brew. Cheers!

Cheers to Goblinmunkey7 for giving me a fresh can of this
Appearance: Lightly hazy but mostly clear golden orange - kind of a tangerine color, with some hints of light copper - pours with a small, bright white head - sticks around and leaves some nice spots of lacing
Smell: Hoppy, it be - fresh, ripe citrus with some bright orange, tangerine, and grapefruit aromas - fleshy, juicy citrus with a hint of pith - some lightly dank pine and some light tropical notes in the back - nice malt backbone with some moderately cooked biscuits and bread
Taste: Aggressively hoppy yet very drinkable - interesting hop profile with some nicely juicy citrus and some tropical flavors - orange, tangerine, and grapefruit flesh - lightly pithy - some pine and light herbal/grassy notes in the finish - decidedly bitter and well-rounded in hop flavors - nice malt profile with some bread and a touch of light biscuits - pale malts and maybe a touch of caramel
Mouthfeel: Medium body, very smooth, nicely carbonated, very drinkable
Overall: There are worse things to be
This is probably the best IPA I've had that was brewed in Massachusetts. And it's probably because it tastes so West Coast. It's extremely hoppy, as the name would suggest, and it has a nice profile. To an extent, it almost tastes like a DIPA. It's extremely flavorful for the low ABV - I would have guessed higher. If I ever see this in MA, I'll be buying more.
