Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: beernbbq on 04-14-2004

Starting with six different hop varietals added to the brew kettle & culminating with a massive dry-hop addition of Simcoe hops, Bell's Hopslam Ale possesses the most complex hopping schedule in the Bell's repertoire. Selected specifically because of their aromatic qualities, these Pacific Northwest varieties contribute a pungent blend of grapefruit, stone fruit, and floral notes. A generous malt bill and a solid dollop of honey provide just enough body to keep the balance in check, resulting in a remarkably drinkable rendition of the Double India Pale Ale style.

Honestly, I don't know what I like more about this beer, the taste or the aroma. There is something about the bitter hoppy scent that I wish I could capture in a candle.

I've been drinking this for several years now and I look forward to January when Bells distributes to Chicago.

Definitely one of my favorite beers, this strong DIPA has some serious flavor. It has a nice deep golden color and a great combination of hops with a wonderful mix of honey and a hint of citrus and pine. It plays to all of your senses and while it may be 10.5% it never gets too harsh on your taste buds.
