506. Wormtown Brewery Hopulence
This is my first beer from Wormtown, Hopulence their big double IPA. I had heard good things about their beer but I rarely make it down to Mass so hadn’t had a chance to try them yet. I got two bottles from a friend that made brought back a bunch of beer on a recent trip down.
This beer looks great, bright unfiltered orange color with a thick white head. Nothing but hops in the aroma with plenty of tropical/citrus fruits. Taste has plenty of those same fruits but also a nice sweetness and a bit of pine. This beer finished clean for a double IPA and was quite refreshing.
Really impressed with my first beer from Wormtown and will definitely need to try some more soon.
