Wormtown Hopulence

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.

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).

Below is a photo recap. Click on any picture to get a much better resolution. Enjoy!
