Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass.
Aroma- has a strong hops and forest aroma, pretty nice
Appearance- A copper yellow color with a small white head.
Taste- A very hoppy brew, nice flavor a little tart with a dry finish.
Palate- A light to medium brew with moderate carbonation with a dry finish and a nice tart aftertaste.
Overall- Not a bad beer at all, I would drink this again.

12 oz bottle, dated 10/23/14, poured into a tulip glass.

A - clear copper body with a thin off white head.Good lacing and decent retention.

N - American hops with citrus (grapefruit) and pine. Smells of freshness even though it's two and a half months old.

T - a little mellower than the Roseburg mostly hoppy. A little spicy and a background of light biscuits.

M- fair carbonation and a nice smooth feel.

O - a very nice american ipa. Nothing wow or anything but definitely good. Cheers!

It seems each time I get Hoppyum every 4-6 months or so, I expect more hops. Nice look and foam, good approachable piney hop smell, but this beer is very much an even malt and hop balance with a bit of bite from both. The hops are on the organic, bitter side, so don't expect a smooth hop taste. Even with the bite, settles evenly and nicely on the tongue. Bought a six pack, but if this isn't your style, try one first.

Got it in a trade and was a little old. Looked good and had a pretty nice taste at first. But had a very odd smell and taste afterwards. Its hard to descrbe like a tart/resin/alcohol bite that lingers on the tongue. Not too great.
