Style: American IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.30%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
The recipe is simple. Take some hoppy. Add some yum. Nutty malts lend a surprisingly sweet base to copious additions of tangerine-y Simcoe™ hops. Great aroma, superior taste, clean dry finish. One sip will show you why this is our most popular beer . . . followed closely by a strong desire to take another sip.

Hoppyum has a brilliant crystal clear golden slightly reddish appearance, with a thin light head that quickly vanishes.

It expresses a great singular sweet grapefruit aroma and strong hoppy bitterness that dissipates quickly.

Upon first sip, a straight forward crispy hops flavor hits you combined with high carbonation without background noise or defined fruitiness.

This vibrant crispness held off by high amount of carbonation parting to the zesty and clean finish. Hoppyum drinks as a hoppy straightforward single note IPA that makes for a smooth refreshing beer that drinks fast.

Creamy head of foam on the top. Nice amber color; lovely bouquet. Very smooth with very little bite. A great beer to buy in a six pack. I can see this as a definite go-to beer. I will look for this again - very enjoyable. Pairs well with sharp cheddar cheese and Triscuits.

20oz becher glass.
Pours clear golden, quickly dissipating off-white head, minimal lacing. Aroma is light fruit, malt-rich. Tastes of light tropical, fruit and smooth malt base. MF is low on carbonation, low on bitterness.. high on balance. A very good experience!

Another great hoppy IPA from my local Brewery, Foothills. The Taste is refreshing and crisp with a great Hoppy taste, but never too bitter. Pleasant aroma, very drinkable and just a tad "below" (for lack of a better word) Foothills' incredible Jade IPA.

Discovered this beer while visiting UNC, where my daughter goes to school. I pick up a case every time I visit. My house favorite.
