Tonight I’m switching things up and giving you the beer review first! In honor of National IPA day, I’m throwing back this bottle of Wormtown Hopulence.
The brew is a monster imperial IPA, clocking in at 120 IBU (international bitter units). 120 is roughly twice the IBUs you might normally get in an American IPA. Wowza! Hopulence has a relatively sweet and citrusy aroma. The flavor, however, is all floral and pine. This is a HARDCORE bitter beer for only the most hoppiest of hop-heads. Beer newbies be warned!
Now, on to a picture recap of last night’s festivities. I was down at a Patriots’ practice session at Gillette Stadium. Limited attendance, general admission. We sat on the 50 yard line 4 rows from the field. Let’s just say I’ll probably never find myself in these seats again (~$2000 a seat during regular season).
