Pours a light amber color with a small tight off-white head. Not much lacing on the glass.

Nice grapefruit and pine hop aroma. Some tropical fruit and apricot notes as well. A hint of honey sweetness from the malt. A bit too much on the sweet side for my preference.

Similar taste as in the aroma, except much more earthy. Light grapefruit and a rather large pine burst kick things off. There is a bit of pineapple to provide some sweetness. Finishes with an aspirin/resiny note. The beer hits a pretty wide spectrum of hop flavors. The malt is substantial but doesn't really affect the flavor except to provide a bready base to balance the hops.

Moderate body with fizzy carbonation. Quite bitter on the palate but not overly so. A bit dry in the finish. A little lingering bitterness but not awful. 3.75

A very solid bitter IPA.

From notes on 4/5/14

Down in Chapel Hill for work. Bought a bomber of Hoppyum to try in my hotel room. Pours a golden straw color. slightly lighter than Sam Adams. Had a solid 2 inch head. Very hoppy aroma. Could smell it a few feet away after pouring. Smell is slightly earthy grass. Good amount of malty smell too. Pretty tasty. It is bitter, but it definitely has a solid malt backbone. Has a mild grassy taste, with a bread malt flavor.
