Poured from a bottle into a snifter
A- pours a clear bright copper color, half finger white head appears and slowly dissipates down to a ring, pretty nice lacing
S- wow this beer smells just like a DIPA should, a nice bouquet of hops and sweet honey, nice citrus, lemon and grapefruit, surprisingly im getting pineapple as well, sweet and citrusy
T- its called hopslam for a reason, you get a big kick in the mouth from the hops, the sweetness of the honey mixed in with the citrus is a nice middle buffer between the initial hops and the ending hops, at times i find the hops to be well balanced and at other times it seems a little overbearing, not sure whats up with that
M- medium body, silky smooth, slightly high carbonation, i wish it would coat my palate a bit more but it is solid nonetheless
D- i wasn't impressed with the first couple bottle that i had of this, however, on this review the flavors and smells were much better balanced than i remember, a nice one to sip especially at the price
