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.

I really like this beer and in general it fall into my, I can't wait for this one to be released category every year. Very hop forward aromas and heavy sweet mouth-feel. No doubt the use of honey help boost the alcohol by volume to it's advertised and impressive 10%. As usual another great beer from Bell's!

A: lit golden color with a lingering head and visible carbonation. Solid legs
S: a sweetness joins the normal hop blast including grapefruit and fresh grass. The sweet floral nose is what makes this unique
T: lemon, grapefruit and a sweet malt that I did not expect that lingers
M: medium heavy sitting not the palate for a while.
O: really bright IPa and understand why one of the highest rated. If you can ever find it worth a buy
