So I finally get to try the famous Hopslam! Thanks to the generosity of my brother and fellow BA member, I was sent a bottle from Louisville, KY. Thanks so much Bri for the beer! Love ya bro!
Poured and enjoyed in a DFH Signature Glass.
A - Pours a golden amber color. Semi-transparent, slightly cloudy. Little to no head on the initial pour. A slight scattered skim on top of the beer. Moderate lacing left on the glass.
S - A classic IPA smell! Great aroma of citrusy grapefruit mixed with a nice hoppiness.
T - Awesome beer! I can see why this is so highly rated. A fantastic and well balanced mix of citrus along with a nice bitter bite from the hops. A nice backbone of malts lend a nice sweetness so it isn't just a hop bomb. I'm also getting a rather distinct pine taste on the backend. Leaves a great bitter aftertaste. The alcohol is there but not to the point that it is overpowering. I could down several of these but the 10% ABV probably would sneak up on you really quick.
M - A moderate to slighly heavier consistency. A hoppy bitterness lingers after each sip.
O - A top-notch DIPA. It deserves all the accolades that it gets. I loved this beer and would love to be able to get it all the time. Easily one of the best beers I've ever had. I now can say that I've been able to enjoy this classic. Highly recommended. Again, I can't thank you enough brother for giving me the chance to try this...finally!
