Been a long, long time since I've had a Bell's beer. Used to enjoy the THA on a daily basis living in NC, but here in NY we did not get Bell's beer. Until this week. I walked into my beer shop, saw THA, and right next to it, a 6 of hopslam. I couldn't believe my eyes. However, its a 3 bottle limit. Still, I'll take it. Here goes nothing:
A: Bright orange. Decent head at first pour. Good head retention.
S: Plethora of fruits: citrus, grapefruit, papaya, etc. Mixes well with the pungent alcohol smell. A hint of honey.
T: Wow. Hops hops hops. That's what you expect with a name like hopslam, right? Citrus, pine, resin, papaya, grapefruit. The flavors just keep coming. Slight malt backbone. Honey filters in at the end while the bitterness takes a hold of the palate.
M: Really a strong point of the beer. Perfectly balanced, medium-bodied. Bitterness holds the alcohol at bay.
O: Really great DIPA/IAPA. I'm so ecstatic to have Bells in NY finally, I don't know where to start. I guess Hopslam isn't a bad place! Must have.
