One of my favorites, the Hopslam is released each year in January and acts to give many something to look forward to in the dead of winter/post holiday period.
A = A rich off/dark amber color with a substantial head upon pouring that settles down nicely as drinking begans. The viscosity level hypes your anticipation that something great is about to be enjoyed.
S = This style of IPA is all "west coast." The nose offers ripe, rich grapefruit that becomes the beer's signature.
T = Requesite high alcohol content blends smoothly into the recessed folds of grapefruit and citrus. This is a bold, hoppy brew that provides an enjoyable taste and long finish without burning your tastebuds off with extreme bitterness.
M = Richness abounds with substantial essence of oily goodness. The high alcohol warms the throat.
D = A destination beer meaning that it's best enjoyed in your favorite easy chair. One leaves you good (and wanting more), two beers and most people should be satisfied. Remember the high ABV because this one can slip by you quickly. If you finish the 6-pack, it will result in a great night - bad morning.
