Bottled Jan. 9, 2012- Just at 2 weeks old at the time of review.
Pours a beautiful gold color with a nice one finger off white head. Really good lacing on the side of my snifter. Somewhat clear in appearance, and nice amount of bubbles coming up from the bottom of the glass. The nose is amazing: pineapple, mango, orange, peach- very citrus oriented, and extremely well balanced. The taste even steps it up a notch. One drink and my palate screams for mercy.. thus the name 'Hopslam'. I get the citrus flavors, honey, slight malt in the background, and some other grassy/earthy hops. Amazingly, none of the 10% alcohol is evident at all. Just really well balanced and ultimately tasty. The mouthfeel is exquisite as well. It has the citrus/honey sweetness with some malt, and then the hops just wrecking your palate on the backside. Perfectly carbonated and executed. Overall, this is definitely one of my favorite seasonal beers- and favorite beers period. It's amazing, and I'm glad I still have five left in my fridge. Cheers!
