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.

A-Poured in a tulip. Pours a nice clear amber with a small head and some nice lacing.

S-Since this is brewed with honey, I thought it had lots of earthy tones, oak, vanilla, citrus and pine.

T-At first you get a caramel sweetness, then the bitterness of the hops, and a slight honey on the back end.

M-Very smooth and extremely drinkable. For the ABV it can go done very smooth and fast.

O-A great DIPA. One of my favorites I've ever had. I look forward every year to the 2nd or 3rd week in January when this comes out. Living in Chicago, I enjoy traveling the hour and ten minutes to pick up a case.

Love the hoppy yet citrusy - honey taste of hopslam. The bottom line is
It's smooth and easy to drink. Along with Three Floyds Dreadnaght and Heady
Topper it doesn't get much better than this. Bell's really does it right with Hopslam. It's the perfect mix of strong and smooth.
