Poured into a pint glass
Deep golden color.
About 2 fingers of thick head, that dissipated to about 1/4 inch in the matter of about 2 minutes. However, it left a good coating of lacing on the side of the glass.
Aroma is all hops. Very fragrant. Floral with the scent of apricots.
The taste is of aggressive, flowery hops. Finishes with a good bit of bitterness. I can definitely taste the high alcohol content, but alcohol is not overly predominant.
Mouthfeel is tricky on this one. The beer has a medium body, but the bitterness from the hops coats my mouth to the point where this beer gives the perception of being much heavier than it really is. Taking another sip actually seems to clean the palate.
Overall, a very pleasant beer. I've read much about Hopslam, but have not yet had the opportunity to try it. Now that I have, I can say the reviews are correct. This is a great beer and one I'm looking forward to having again.
