Pours light, clear amber with generous white head. This dissipates slowly, leaving a thin cap of lacing.

Some beers need to be swirled a bit and held right under the nose before you can smell them, while others make themselves known as soon as you open the bottle. Hopslam falls into that second category. Citrus hops, backed up by just a little sweetness, make for a fantastic smell.

The flavor opens with big, bright citrus and pine hops, then moves on to just a bit of sweet caramel or honey. The finish is long, lingering, and nicely bitter.

Medium-bodied with some nice carbonation, this has a fine mouthfeel.

The ABV is nearly undetectable in this beer. I feel like I could easily drink a few at a sitting, and only realize what I've done when I try to stand up.
