4.35/5 rDev -3.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4
A- Poured into a pint glass from a 12oz bottle. A dark gold with a white head.
S- Very citrusy, pineapple, grapefruit. Has almost a sweet malty scent to it (maybe the honey). Are you sure this is 10% ABV?
T- Very much like it smells. Smooth and very balanced. With a name like hopslam you would think it would just smack you in the face, but it is surprisingly mellow. The finish actually ends unlike most Double IPA's I've had. Really really good!
M- It may be me, but it might have the best mouthfeel I've had in a double IPA. Maybe its the honey but it seems just a little thicker on the tongue than most DIPA's.
D- Well, apparently it is 10% ABV. I'm just about finished with my first and my tongue wants more, but my head does not. (I have work in the morning) In other words, "Its extremely delicious, cancel my plans".

4.39/5 rDev -2.7%
look: 4.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5
Poured from a bottle into a tulip shaped glass. Dated 1/10/14 so it's exactly two months old. I'm guessing most will say i need to have it fresher but this is the best i can do here in New Hampshire.
I thought it presented almost perfectly, creamy off-white 3/4 head, some lacing as i go. Hazy, dense copper color, very pretty. The smell is good but not what drives the beer, musty & funky with a hint of sweetness. The taste is bitter and hoppy, no real fruit presence. Not sure if it's the honey that slightly offsets the bitterness but it works non-the-less. Overall, this a bubbly, carbonated, hoppy happy beer. Their isn't even a slight hint that it's 10%, no boozy taste or smell. Cheers.
