4.08/5  rDev -9.1%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

A - Hazy orangish/amber with a nice foamy head. Good retention and sticky lacing on the sides.

S - Tons of hops, citrusy, grassy, even a little earthy if you look real hard. Malt backbone, and a sweet smell comes from it. Alcohol cuts through, can really smell it.

T - Very nice, sweet pine/grapefruit/grassy hops with a subtle light malt backbone. Nicely bitter, but not overpoweringly so.

M - Creamy and medium bodied. Nice carbonation compliment.

D - Easy to drink, the high ABV is slightly noticable and will kick your ass if you try too many.

First time to try it today. Truly an exceptional beer!
Pours a nice orange and golden color with moderate head.
The aroma is a basket of citrusy fruits and sweet honey and handfuls of hops. It smells so damn delicious.
The beverage drinks smoothly, taste of fruit, pine, sweet honey, and hops...lots of em'
At 10% ABV, the alcohol is almost completely hidden. I could drink these all night and not be able to know I was drinking such a high gravity beer from just taste alone.
One of the best DIPA's out there. Get it if you can.
I had to travel a nice little distance to get it but it was well worth it!

I had the opportunity to taste (on FEB 2010) a one year old (2009) Hopslam next to a fresh (2010) Hopslam. And tested in the new Samuel Adams beer snob glasses to boot. Wow. What a difference. The 2009 had been stored dark, cool (cellar) and was VERY GOOD. BUT contrasted with the FRESH Hopslam it was considerably mellower with a smoother body, lower head and was of a flatter carbonation. The fresh Hopslam had a face slapping citrus bouquet and from the first sip it had a sharp and stringent smack of grapefruit right into the aftertaste. Wonderfully enjoyable for hopheads BUT maltbellies would be very disappointed. I think I've finally found a breakfast champagne beer to challenge my current choice of the clean and crisply carbonated Birra Moretti (urp). Here's to Bells!

Acquired this from 321jeff as a gift for having a son. No Strings attached, what at guy. Thanks Jeff for hooking me up with such a wonderful beer.

This beer pours a cloudy, honey color with a one finger white creamy head that discipated quickly. Sticky lacing leaves a nice spider web on the glass

Honey, pineapple, orange and even apple notes are present. Oh, did i mention HOPS!!!!Sweet malts are also present.

I love ipa's and this is one of the best tasting DIPA's i've ever had. Its the East's response to RR PtE, but only second best ;). Sweet honey, pineapple, and mango flavors come out in front, followed by piney, citrusy hoppines that i oh so love. Nice lasting bitterness lingers as i type this....damn that's a good beer.

Medium body, moderate carbonation, sticky, oily and resinny on the tongue with a nice dry finish.

What can i say, this is a very drinkable beer, but I'm finding myself a bit tipsy, so i don't think its very sessionable. Its pretty strong at 10% and its shining through and not hidden as others have mentioned. Event though its strong, it does go down easily and is extremely well balanced. I have one more in my fridge that i cant wait to drink even thought this one is only 3/4 empty. I am accepting offers for trades now.

Big thanks to Brian for bringing a case of this back to share from his recent trip. Poured from a 12oz bottle into a generic wide mouth tulip. Batch #9502

Liquid is a hazy golden orange with amber highlights. A solid yet rocky ivory collar rings around a bonsai-like design of surface bubbles. Fine lacing and faint legs.

Fresh, potent hops assault the senses: hemp, evergreen, mint, sweat, clove, along with faint tropical and citrus notes. The honey coes through next, adding a sweet fruity counterpoint.

Intensely flavorful - pine, tangelo, persimmon, and earth on the palate. The bitterness is well balanced by sugars - but the hops maintain a certain clarity with the sweetness coming from honey rather than malt. Peppery, zesty finish with lingering fruit and hops.

Medium-bodied, creamy, yet the bitterness leaves the gums tingling. Average carbonation which works well for this beer. The alcohol is disguised making this dangerous in the drinkability category.

Quite bitter, but the balance draws you back again and again.

A unique take on the DIPA that offers a thoughtful alternative to the whole West Coast/East Coast divide.

First had this year's version on tap about a month ago at Tyler's in Apex, NC so the appearance rating is from then. That was the first time I've been able to try this beer and I enjoyed it enough that I went on a search for it and was lucky enough to score a couple of cases. I'm halfway through a case and am drinking one out of a bottle as I write this. Smooth with a nice sweet aftertaste. Slight, sweet citrus smell. This is an IPA that I could drink this every day if I could find it. Just great.

got this beer in a recent trade from lerxst. thanks for this one big time, really enjoyed.

L- clear orangy with some reddish amber hints throughout . ther's arelativel thin foamy white head, probably thin due to the higher ABV. There's some spoty lacing, also probably due to the high ABV. good looking beer overall.

S- Citrusy, floral, tropical fruit hops are all in the aroma. very complex hop profile here with a nice backbone of some honey sweet smelling maltiness. great nose

T- Starts of with the honey sweet maltiness then moves nicely into the tropical fruits, then to the floral and finally to the citrusy hop finish with some nice mellow bitterness. Complex and very well layered.

M/D- medium-light bodied, good amount of carbonation. very smooth and mellow for an IPA of this ABV. would have liked a little bit more body, but can't be picky. i wish i could get this whenever i wanted, would be my go to IPA if it were available in CT.

Thanks again Lerxst!

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Drawn from a firkin at Macniven's, on 2/25/10. Served in a tulip. Reviewed from tasting notes.

A- Similar to bottled Hopslam. Golden with amber and red highlights. Almost no head, just a slight ring of lacing that is sticky as all hell.

S- Hopslam on steroids! So intense. Heavy hops, grapefruit, citrus, some honey and malty sweetness.

T- Good God. It's like UBER Hopslam. Almost as if it was mixed with fresh grapefruit, lemon and orange juice. So flavorful and intense. Fairly sweet but with enough hops to strike a near perfect balance. Almost with it was just a tad more bitter, but damn near on point nonetheless.

M- Just enough carbonation. Fairly syrupy but not too much. Really just pleasant, like a tongue massage.

D- This was so unbelievably good, but I don't think I could handle anymore than the three I had. But, if you can keep it going, I suggest doing so on into infinity.

Had this on tap at City Bev in town. Poured into a Chimay goblet. Great bright orange color with a large frothy white head on top. Great retention; left lots of sticky lace globs. Scents of sweet candy, orange and lemon zest, pine, booze, etc. This smells as good as ever!

The body is a little thin still. I noticed this with the bottles as well. Crisp carbonation there, but could stand a bit more body maybe? Bitter citrus right off the bat, but melts to a warm honey sweetness. Alcohol is known, but it warms and soothes for sure. Great beer. Loved it both ways.

4.43/5  rDev -1.3%
look: 4 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

The initial thing that hits you is the aroma. There is a strong ester of mango as soon as you pour this ale into your glass. That aroma only intensifies as the beer airs. However, there is no mistaking the strong scent of alcohol also. Not surprising, considering the 10% abv of this American Double IPA.

The color is a beautiful orange like that of a maple leaf in the Fall. The head to this beer has been consistently smaller than I would like (this is the fourth out of a 6 pack), but is the delectable color of toasted meringue.

The taste is completion of the aroma- strong esters and alcohol, but with it the wonderful bitterness of the hops. Surprisingly though, with a name like Hopslam, I don't find the hops as dramatic as some other American IPAs. The ale is brewed with honey and, though I don't find the taste of honey pronounced, the sweetness of the honey balances the bitterness of the hops. The aftertaste is almost floral.

The mouthfeel is pleasing. A nice bite blended with an understated carbonation and slight chewiness.

Overall, this is a great drinking experience. Sight, smell, and taste combine to make a deliciously drinkable beer.

Pours a orange-yellow amber with a light white head. The aroma is full of floral and hoppy scents. Taste was actually different from the aroma. It started off sweet, like honey, but then the hops started to kick in as it went down. The alcohol isn't that strong, could barely taste it. Kind of surprising for a 10% ABV. Good thickness and carbonation. Since the alcohol wasn't that strong, I would almost recommend this as an anytime beer. But due to price and the 10% ABV, i'll back down a tiny bit.

I've been tearing through a case of these for the better part of two weeks, so I figured it's time to write a review. Review comes from dinner on Sat, Feb 27. Poured from bottle into standard pint glass.

I'll keep this one brief as just about everything that can be said has been.

Looks pretty good. Not over whelming at all, but still stands out as a typical IPA. Hazy orange color with a nice thin white head. Exactly what one would expect from a high quality DIPA. Smell and taste is of super citrus hops, but where this one delivers is that taste portion. Not overly bitter, smooth finish with a perfectly sweet aftertaste. I've given this to people who have no interest in IPA's and they like it. Not overwhelming, just a great beer.

Pours to a honey color with a decent head that remains throughout.

This beer is unique in that it is very hoppy yet very smooth. It seems to get better as you drink it. I'll be honest, I kept expecting more, and wasn't getting it, but then it hit me when I was about halfway through that it was tasting great and quenching my desire for a hop flavor. I wasn't slammed with hops, which is a testament to its drinkability.

Citrusy, hoppy smell... like a good IPA.

Poured from 12 oz. bottle

Look: golden yellow

Smell: Grapefruit, pine

Taste: WOW! A Hop bomb just doesn't get any better in my opinion. It's all in the balance of bitter and sweet. Punches you in the mouth with hop, grapefruit, and let's you down easy with a sweet bit of citrus and honey.

Mouthfeel: Strong at first, dryer in the end.

Drinkability: I normally space out the number I have in a night just since it is more scarce than most beers, but it tastes too good not to want one after another and another.

I enjoy it as much if not more than PtE, and think it deserves a place close to the Top.

I had this beer at a restaurant, poured into a pilesner glass from a bottle. It is an orangy amber color with a nice white head.

The smell and taste are awesome. There is all kinds of citris and hops in the aroma and the taste. It is like an explosion of citris and bitterness at the same time, and I like it.

The mouthfeel is quite good. I can't believe how drinkable this strong abv beer is.

This is a great beer.

Review from notes. Enjoyed last night from tap into a standard pint glass at Ballantines in Willoughby as a part of their "IPAlooza" program (28 IPA's in 28 days).

A Translucent, light caramel body which might be lighter than the bottle version. I seem to recall that it was a bit more cloudy. Reasonable light brown creamy head but this might have been minimized by the bartender. 3.5

S Tart hops and malt goodness. A classic smell of a great beer. Inviting, interesting, potent. 4.5

T Floral hops with a significant malt sweetness and a warmth of alcohol that is all presented really nicely. This beer is sweet, sour and is bold in its tastes. 4.5

M Syrupy thickness along with that hops tartness, big, bold feel. 4.5

D This is a delicious beer that I cannot have too much of since it is so big with big ABV. 4.0

Thanks Greg for the bottle.

Poured in to a tulip, its medium gold in color and quite hazy. On top sits a white head with good consistency. It starts off as one finger large and then recedes into a solid cap.

The aroma is weaker than I expected. It really isn't that intense at all. It has a general citrus and pine aroma, I would guess it uses Centennial and Simcoe in the hop bill. It's balanced more towards the pine, with just a touch of peach. It's a nice aroma, but it's on the weak side as far as DIPA's go.

The flavor of the beer is mostly focused on being brutally bitter. It is similar to licking the peel of a very bitter grapefruit. It's a bit harsh, but in a way that makes me want more. The sweetness to this beer is vague. There is no caramel, and the honey doesn't add enough for it to be recognized blindly. I can tell however that this beer uses highly fermentable sugars like honey, because the malt has no impact and lets the hops do their thing. Besides bitterness, the hops add a slight grapefruit flavor and some pine and menthol notes on the finish. There is also a touch of alcohol.

The palate is medium bodied with a relatively high carbonation. As it went on, I felt it was too much. I enjoyed the beer, but it needs more hop aroma and flavor....which isn't a good thing to be saying about a DIPA. I usually prefer aromatic DIPA's, and can care less about bitterness, so this isn't a favorite of mine.

3.98/5  rDev -11.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

A: Pours a slightly hazy golden-amber color with about a finger of fluffy white head. The head dissipated a little fast than I would have liked, though. Lots of sticky lace on the sides of the glass.

S: A pretty incredible sweet nose on this one. Tons of fragrant grapefruit dominates the nose. A mix of pine and a little honey is also detectable.

T: Sweet tropical fruit dominates the flavor as well: pineapple and grapefruit. These flavors sit atop a malty backbone that transitions into a somewhat grainy (but not bitter) finish. Some honey comes trough in the finish too. Hop bitterness really takes a back seat and is almost nonexistent. The flavor is good, but it's almost too sweet (especially as the brew warms). I would have liked to see a little more bitterness to balance out the impressive array of sweet flavors.

M: A nice medium body with an appropriate amount of carbonation. The 10% abv is well hidden in the flavor, but you can feel it warming on the way down.

D: Definitely a good DIPA, but I don't agree with the majority that this is an amazing quaff. The flavor lacked the hop bitterness necessary to balance the high level of sweetness. I think perhaps "Grapefruit Slam" would be a more appropriate name. I would be interested to taste this without any honey added - I bet the flavor would have better balance.

On Tap @ The POPE

Look: Golden amber, clear, with a a medium head and decent lacing (perhaps it was the glass?)

Smell: Massive citrus hop aroma! Malt and a slight amount of honey also present

Taste: Up Front: Sweet malt and hops do battle, grapefruit, apricot. Finish: Honey, with malt and hops still duking it out

Mouthfeel: Medium body, incredibly smooth and balanced!

Drinkability: Alcohol is well hidden, uber-drinkable, but watch out, it's a shit kicker!

Overall Impression: I started and ended my session with the mighty HopSlam. This is the best Double IPA I've had to date! That may not last though, because Pliny the Elder and Pliny the Younger are coming to Philly on March 1. (Edit: as it turns out, I actually preferred Hopslam to Younger, making this the 2nd best Double IPA, second only to Elder)

This beer reminds me of Boulder's Mojo in that it has honey and apricot flavors in addition to the typical grapefruit. Of course it's much higher octane, and the flavors are significantly more intense. Truly Nectar of the Godz!

4.33/5  rDev -3.6%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Pour - a beautiful shade of orangish auburn with some bright hues and a big fluffy white head. Looks fairly innocent although it pours a bit viscous.

Aroma - hops, hops galo re. Along with a boat load of sticky, resiny hops there is a good amount of sweet malt aroma. Its a bit skunky and syrupy as well. Its smells big.

Taste - my tongue is numbed and my stomach is warmed. Hopslam does both simultaneously. Big chewy hop flavors combine extremely well with a ton of malt sweetness which boosts that ABV to double digits. Plenty of citrus bitterness and astringent hop flavors to satisfy even the most staunch of hopheads.

Overall - a behemoth of an IPA that probably should leave you satisfied after one but more than likely pushes you to have another. There is a lot of hype that is for sure but it definitely delivers what it promises. The fact that a beer of this strength is as smooth and balanced as it is really makes this a standout offering from Bell's.

Would I buy more of it? - yes. This is a great beer and satisfies my hop fix just fine.

Shhhh..Don't tell Cerveza Chica, but I think I am going to have an affair with this beer. Yep, I'm in love. Super Hoppy, nice sweet notes, and very little malt...but just enough to get 10% ABV! I think I have found a new favorite beer. Sadly this one is really hard to get hold of, and is a nice limited release. The down side is I only picked up a six pack. While I'm not a huge fan of Bell's Beers this is amazing. If you can get your hands on this bad boy RIGHT NOW! This is hop perfection! I wouldn't change anything about this beer. I love the lingering bitterness. Ok, so here time for a score. Sadly I wont give a beer a 5, simply because there is no where to go from there, and aren't we all looking for the NEXT GREAT BEER?!?
