On tap at Peppercorn's served in a Sierra Nevada pint glass.

A - Pours a very cloudy medium orange with a solid 1 finger head that dissipated rather quickly but left nice lacing the whole way down.

S - The usual suspects of citrus and pine some light malt and yeast.

T - Firmly bitter with a large yeast bite. Not much in the way of hop flavor.

M - Medium mouthfeel with good carbonation

Overall a nice attempt at a West Coast style IPA but seems to me that it may have been rushed out of the brewery to have such a prominent yeasty flavor.

Thanks to damienblack for this extra in a recent trade. 22 oz. bottle split with my wife as a change from the big, brutal, darkness we've been imbibing.

The pour is a hazed, hefe yellow, clear until the last 2-3 ounces came tumbling forth. Nose issues a memorandum of floral hops, bit of lemon, & a light & breezy sweetness.

Be Hoppy is a beer that's hard to pin to the mat. A lovely, dry hoppiness up front gives way to too much sweet malt in the background. Citrus, caramel, sugary sweetness vie for attention. There's an aspirin lilt in the aftertaste that dents the enjoyment. Dense & chewy for a regular old IPA, & I'm going to attribute that, fairly or not, to a hand too heavy on the malt. This weighs the tummy like a bruiser twice its weight; Darkness felt light by comparison. Half a bomber? If I must.

Bit of a letdown, this one is decent enough, but not a brew I'd feel compelled to run out & try again.

22 fl oz brown bottle served in a tumbler.

Bottled in August 2011.

Slightly cloudy, pale straw in color. A bit of noticeable carbonation. Dense, bright white foam of a head. Condensed and spotted lacing with good strength.

Bright pine and citrus hops; both seem to be a bit thin and a touch solvent-like. Some medicinal notes along with a moderate earthen must.

Lemon, lime, and pear citrus qualities up front; again, a bit thin in spots. Spruce and pine that overwhelm the palate which leads to an overpowering, bulky bitterness. Touches of peach and melon in the aftertaste, along with the bitterness.

Medium in body; thin in spots, but remarkably gritty. As with the taste, the texture is just out of balance.

Intensely hoppy; however, the various hops don't quite marry. Lacks a refined touch.
