A: crystal clear; bronze in color; 1 finger off white head that receded to an uneven cap; nice lacing;

S: pine, with a little tropical fruit and cat pee;

T: pine up front; cat pee comes in at mid-palate and stays through the finish with a little floral added in as well; moderate bitterness at the end;

M: medium bodied; moderate carbonation; medium dry finish;

O: an odd combination of flavors that would each be fine in their own;

First had in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, on draft into goblet. Not big, not complicated, but Hoppyum is a balanced and not insignificant American IPA.

Hoppy but balanced, not too intense, very drinkable. Since it's available year round and can be found locally, this might be a new staple in my fridge!
