Beer Review: Be Hoppy

Reviewing the Be Hoppy from Wormtown Brewing Company out of Massachusetts.
Score: 90

No bottling date, but received this one in a trade as an extra in the last week of March. Served in an Avery stemmed beer glass and enjoyed on 04/09/12.

Appearance: Pours a translucent golden color with three fingers of foamy off-white head that slowly settles to a thin layer. Excellent lacing, pretty good retention. 4/5

Smell: Lots of sweet grapefruit, lemon and fresh citrus. Plenty of piney hops. There is an orange juice aroma in the background of the nose. 4/5

Taste: Juicy citrus and grassy hops. Malty orange juice backbone. Lemon, grapefruit, orange and mango. Lingering bitter citrus and malty orange juice finish. 4/5

Mouthfeel: Juicy mouthfeel. Bitter and slightly malty sweet finish. 4/5

Overall: A really solid and juicy everyday IPA offering. Refreshing and flavorful.

Recommendation: If you live in Massachusetts, seek a bottle of this stuff out.

Pairings: Rainbow sherbet ice cream.

Cost: $8 for a 22 oz bottle.
