In a blind tasting by BJCP trained experts, this beer rated


Wormtown Brewery Be Hoppy

Aroma: “Lemon zest, grapefruit, and a slight whiff of smoke (phenols?). Slight spicy note with low garlic notes. As it starts to warm a slight sweetness presents.”

Flavor: “Lemongrass, grapefruit, and a unique cured-meat note are nicely supported by a light, spritzy malt body. Lively and bright on the tongue with a bitter, slightly sweet finish. A slight cabbage-like note up front but in a fresh street taco sort of way. Medium bitterness, a slight juicy note, and some earthy avors evolve as it warms.”

Overall: “The lemony aroma is quite nice—it’s a lively beer that improves as it warms up and exhibits a pleasant bitterness. Enjoyable fruit character and appropriate bitterness but not overly complex. Could pair well with street tacos—the corn tortillas and the cabbage would play very nicely with the dank, earthy and somewhat juicy hops flvors.”
