I picked up a 6pk of the infamous Hopslam at Woodman’s in Beloit, WI in early 2011 for $14.99.

Pours a hazy copper color with a lingering off white head. The scent is oh so hoppy! Lots of bitter hops with hints of citrus and wheat. The initial sip starts out slightly bitter and gradually builds up and finishes quite dry and bitter. This is perhaps the smoothest most drinkable IIPA I have ever had. Some floral and fruity hints in the mix as well. Full of flavor and well worth paying a little extra for. Hopslam is a must try!

12 oz. -> Weyerbach tulip. Split a case with Frank from Allentown, PA.

A - Dark gold, light amber, straw color. Thin head, slightly larger than average bubbles.

S - Sweet, pine, citrus, light breadyness

T - Huge burst of flavors immediately. First thing I noticed was how well the hops are balanced out with malt. Same flavors that the aroma gives off. Just a tad of honey sweetness as it finishes.

M - Just thin enough to lightly coat with flavor. Light alcohol warmth.

D - Good to split between two people, not difficult to put back a 12 oz serving solo. I'll continue to get this when I can. Lucky to have friends who always seem to get it for me.

I love this beer. It's completely worth the hype. Though, it's a tad pricey.
