4.64/5 rDev +3.3%
look: 4.25 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.75
A: golden honey nectar; off white head dissipated quickly
S: why don't they bottle this smell & sell it as cologne? sweet piney grapefruit.
T: the taste follows the nose: sweet piney grapefruit; dry & pleasant bitter on the finish; begs for another taste. the 10% ABV is hidden. side note - the very first time i had hopslam two years ago, i was finishing up work on a friday late afternoon/evening. after just one beer, i proclaimed to a colleague that i thought hopslam was magical and suspect for having medicinal qualities. that was the only time i think i was truly "happy" at work.
M: relatively light carbonation; crisp; medium body.
O: i love this beer. even though i have ventured away from IPAs as of late, Hopslam reminds me why i love the style & eagerly await the annual Hopslam release. i'm even known to enjoy a bottle or three after the 3.2 second freshness window (gasp) that BAs love to live by.
Serving type: bottle
