I've been eyeing this for some time on the BA top 250. The name jumps out at you so I've been eager to try this. Bell's just arrived in NY this week, but this is a hard one to get. Stores are telling me it's flying of the shelves, even with a 6 pack limit. It's name is catchy, and very accurate.
Poured a beautiful rich copper tone. Not much head but I do like me beer very cold. Little carbonation. Hoppy blast on the nose along with citrusy tones. Similar for the taste. Your usual DIPA culprits. The thing that makes this beer stand out it that it's very well smooth and balanced. I would have never pegged it for 10%. It's also not too bitter which I like. You get a nice blast of hops and a full mouthfeel. Very good beer. I guess with all the hype I was just hoping to get "Hopslammed" off my feet, but I came pretty close.
