North Carolina, United States

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.

Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a caramel color with a 1 inch head. Smell is of malts, citrus. Taste is well balanced hops and malts, some citrus, mild bitterness. Feels medium/full bodied in the mouth and overall is an easy drinking beer, however, it lacks some of the punch usually associated with this style.

Hazy light amber with a white head, receded fairly quickly; Smooth fresh hoppy aroma; Smooth tangy pleasantly carbonated mouthfeel. Mild pleasant flavor. A tasty drinkable beer, enjoyable. Don't know if I can get it locally, but it's worth having again.

Fresh bottle in a cold glass. Good head and okay lacing. Tastes like a solid and hoppy west coast IPA. Good mouthfeel and not a bad aftertaste. I think the tarheel guys have done themselves proud with this beer.

Very clear copper in color. The smell, oh, the smell!: tangerine, mango, and SWEETNESS. It smells like its going to be super alcoholic - but its not. The taste is sweet, but not nearly as sweet as it smells. Its nutty and earthy, without any of the fruitiness you smell up front. Its very smooth and velvety. This is one of my very favorite NC beers! Definitely my go to when I'm out and about at random restaurants without a huge selection (its fairly ubiquitous here).

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.
