Ap - Light amber to gold. It depends on the lighting. Like all Bell's beers, it's unfiltered, yet it isn't cloudy, or hazy. It's a little bit cleaner looking than Jai Alai. The head is an off-white fluff that clings to the glass.
Ar - Grapefruit with sugar, soaked in pineapple juice. With more pineapple juice! You can almost smell the alcohol, at least get a burn of the nostrils.
T - Less pineapple than the nose would suggest. But the grapefruit covered in sugar is there. The alcohol is hidden like a gem in the taste. I wouldn't be able to tell that there is honey in it, if it weren't listed. But, since it's listed, I (think I) can taste a tiny hint of honey in the aftertaste.
M - Perfect I believe. It's not too bitter. It's not too dry. It's not too sweet. The hops and malt and honey seem to intermingle perfectly. There's the perfect amount of carbonation tingle. Sticky, medium bodied, big IPA.
O - I was a bit more impressed with Hopslam this time around. I feel it's as close to perfect as possible for an imperial IPA right now. Go get'cha some!
