Draught @ Brewery: This one pours a cloudy, orangish golden color. There is a thin off white head and minimal lacing. Good nose. A bit earthy and a touch funky. Some resinous hops and tropical notes. The taste is very good. Minimal sweetness and some bitterness. Citrus, pie and faint tropical hop flavors. Good Body. Nice!

12 oz bottle, I cant find any freshness/bottling date info

Pours with a medium haze, darker orangey in color, leaves fine strands of lacing.

Large nose of resinous hops and ripe tropical fruit

Resiny and somewhat bitter IPA..trending towards an old school flavor profile...but I do get some oniony notes and ripe tropical fruit, making this a brew with a lot going on..complex, densly flavorful and quite enjoyable.....sturdy and broad shouldered IPA

On tap at Mac and Walt's in Norton, MA.

This one pours a bright and hazy orange, pretty thicc-looking, with a small white head, and lots of lacing.

This one smells like tangerine and orange jam, with mango, and sweet grapefruit, with heavy duty pine as well.

This is really wonderful- it's so rich and creamy, and insanely juicy- tangerine creamsicle, yo. There's a good amount of bitterness, and all of the flavors just resonate super deeply here. This is really well crafted.

This has a rich and creamy mouthfeel, with a nice amount of carbonation.

I've only had a few beers from Wormtown, but all were excellent.

I remember when this first came out ! Those of us that had it we called it fruity pebbles, it was a rotating brew that we couldn't wait for Ben to brew, man what a mouth blast of fruits, it has changed alot since it first came out still a great brew though, but just a shell of its former self

12oz. bottle dated 05/17/16

Pours slightly hazy amber orange with a creamy frothy white foam head. Smells like sweet caramel malt, mild onion, apricot, pineapple, melon, blueberry, blackberry, plum, toffee, nectarine, peach, orange citrus, grapefruit, biscuity cracker, with dank earthy grass and herbal pine. Tastes like biscuity crackery caramel malt, mild onion, pineapple, apricot, cantaloupe, papaya, toffee, blueberry, blackberry, mild stone fruits, grapefruit, orange citrus, with dank earthy grass and herbal pine. Feels medium-light bodied, creamy with moderate carbonation. Overall a really nice double IPA.

Had this at the Worthy Brewfest in Springfield. The beer had a clear amber appearance with an incredible aroma of spiced hops that arise from the glass. The taste followed the nose with a much more pronounced bread-malt balance that helped the beer be bittersweet. General medium body for the beer that helped give a good texture and crispness. Overall, I found this to be an excellent drink.
