Cheers to Goblinmunkey7 for sharing this beer

Consumed 4/10/14

Appearance: Hazy copper orange with some golden highlights around the edges - pours with a medium-sized, off-white head, easy to drum up some foam - leaves some nice streaks of lacing

Smell: Hoppy, but not sure if I'd call it "hoppier" - thanks to the name of this beer, I have no choice but to compare it to Be Hoppy, and I'm not sure if it's as potent - some big, juicy citrus -aromas - ripe grapefruit, tangerine and orange flesh - some fleshy and juicy tropical notes - some hints of pine resin as well - some light malts - pale malts with some light sweetness

Taste: Nicely juicy with a unique hop profile - strong Amarillo component with some light grapefruit, fleshy tangerine, and juicy orange - some pine, resin, and some herbal components - some light, pale malts that work well with the hop profile

Mouthfeel: Light to medium body, nicely smooth, nicely carbonated, definitely very drinkable

Overall: Wormtown be good with hops

This is a great IPA. The hop profile is very interesting, and it's definitely worth a try. I guess that I will need to try more Wormtown beers.

A- Poured from the 22oz bomber to a snifter and a pint glass with a somewhat hazy orange-amber body. The head is white with a creamy and frothy texture and it reaches about two fingers in the pint glass. Good retention as the cap falls eventually to a thick, bubbly ring. Lacing starts with thick sheets and webs followed by

S- Hops make up basically all of the aroma. The bouquet of hops has an emphasis on juicy, tropical and stone fruits that remind me of the ripest of apricots and mangoes. Beyond that is citrus, floral and pine notes. Super clean yeast and no significant malt hints.

T- The juicy fruitiness, so to speak, that is present in the aroma loses some steam but is still in contention with grapefruit, orange, citrus and floral notes to be up front. It is still probably the most distinct thing as the rest of the hop notes blend well. Each sip seems to shift from tropical and stone fruits to citrus juice and rind. Hops all the way as the yeast and malts are beyond clean.

MF- Light to moderately thick body with a creamy and somewhat foamy texture. Carbonation at a medium level and perhaps could be a tad bit higher to help push out those hop flavors even more. Finishes with a moderate bitterness lingering on the palate with the hop oils.

Good presentation of tropical fruity and citrus hops without being overly hopped or taxing too much on the palate. Smooth and refreshing and follows up Be Hoppy nicely.
