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.

This hop-forward brew is big on all accounts.

Pours a beautiful amber-orange.

Dear God, this smells amazing. Wonderful floral and citrusy aroma. Orange, grapefruit, pineapple. Tropical Explosion!! Hops hops hops.

Delicious. Excellent malt:hop balance. Somehow the hops do not come over the top.

The medium body delivers whatever the hop bill is to perfection. Moves relatively slow across the tongue. Oh boy.

So good. Hats off to Bell's.
