I received this fresh but took a while to review it. Down to my last one of the case.
Color is a clear honey tone with maybe a touch of hazing. Head is light and white.
The full aroma is sweet honey and citrus hops. Maybe orange blossom honey? Smells awesome.
Taste is a Hopslam as expected. A nice honey flavor is in the background during the full hop assault. Alcohol is noticeable with a slight burn. This is not a malty DIPA and the malt is light and lets the hops take center stage but the honey and malt do provide a solid base. Bitterness continues through the finish.
Mouth feel is medium with light carbonation.
I was blown away last year after trying this for the first time on tap upon it's release. This was almost as good but maybe because it was a bottle and not on tap. i am very glad my brother snagged a case for me. I will definitely seek this out next year. Bell's brewery rocks the hops.
