Pours a HUGE, dense head with resin all over; very persistent with thick lacing. Surprisingly soft aroma is floral and hoppy...but unexpectedly subdued. Hazy, golden-honey color. Starts almost tart with a lot of citrus hops. There is a very noticeable sweetness. I'm REALLY surprised noticeable the honey is. It builds to a medium hoppiness which becomes more of a citrus/pine bitterness in the finish.
This was a HUGE letdown. It's not overly hoppy in the bitter sense (a la "Ruination") or the floral/aromatic sense (a la "Bedlam") "With a name like Hopslam, what did you expect?" I expected to get SLAMMED WITH HOPS! The honey pairs very, very well with the floral hops. This is good as a floral, honey IPA...but not a very awesome hop bomb.
