A-Pours a dark gold almost copper color with a bright, white head that slowly dissipates. There is no lacing.

S-Citrus hops and some caramel malt.

T-Much like the nose with citrus hops up front providing a nice grapefruit flavor followed by fairly big malt backbone providing notes of caramel and graham cracker. Its a very balanced ipa.

M-Kind of thin for the style as its not heavy.

D-Definitely a drinkable/sessionable ipa.

Overall, not a very complex or hoppy ipa. I like its balance but it seems a little light for the style.

From a bottle, part of a haul brought back from a visit to SC. Bottled on date of 5/29/14, so tight around 3 months old.

Pours nicely, amber coloring, with a big frothy white head, slightly hazy. Didn't get much on the nose.

Upon tasting, although there was some sour bitterness along with a decent malt background, it was fairly obvious that the hops had faded quite a bit. Whether it was a storage issue, or whether it's simply one of those IPA's that doesn't last 3 months in the bottle is hard to say. But given the name, "Hoppyum", I had expected better.
