Bought at Krogers on Broadway.
Copper. Medium beige head. Aroma: Piney hops, grass. Flavor: The same with pine to boot. There is also a note of citris. Dry, hop finish. Nice.
This is a real IPA that makes me proud to live in the southern mountains.

Pours a clear golden orange from the bottle with fluffy white head that leaves moderate lace. Aroma of big resinous hoppy notes, citrus and pine. Taste follows, huge simcoe and centennial notes with a hint of biscuit malts. A nice American style IPA.

Yum! My goodness this beer never disappoints! Smells so yummy, lovely amberish color. The taste is fresh, fruity, kind of similar to foothills jade.

Nice to make your acquaintance, Foothills (and North Carolina). Here’s to hoping we share our time in the near future. Aside from the iconic label design, it’s easy to see why Hoppyum is one of the better known brews by Foothills (it’s no Sexual Chocolate, mind you, but it’s got a reputation nonetheless.) With a piney, citrusy, and lightly bready aroma, Hoppyum smells like a West Coast style IPA. The flavor backs it up with pineapple, grapefruit, orange, pine needles, and some biscuit malt. Balance leans toward hop-forward, but the bitterness isn’t overwhelming at all. "Do you like hops?" Yes, I do, Foothills. I like you, too.

Six pack from Food Lion in Myrtle Beach. Pours out a hazy medium amber color. Off white head that fades to almost nothing. Muddled earthy-pine-citrus aromas. Flavor is a complex mix of bitter pine, citrus, herbs and tropical fruits. Good malty backbone. Long lingering bitterness. Decent IPA.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Subdued aroma of hoppy herbal notes and caramel malts. Orangish bronze body with nice cap of foam. Burned malts and an earthy citrus taste (a little too much malt taste for me). Moderate carbonation, but overall, pretty smooth IPA.
