22oz can I believe

A- Almost saison light golden honey with thick head, medium/medium-low retention. White clouds head in color

S- Really quite bland on the S. Some lemon citrus, some honey, but not much. More of a void

T- Kinda following the S, with some citrus; but hop bite way afterward. Kind of cornfusing

M- Kinda creamy, nice amount of carb; there is a sting involved at the end of the taste

O- Interesting brew, a great extra for anyone!

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

Consumed 3/23/14

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.
