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.
