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.
