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.

When it Bells it pours..I went from dreaming about Bells beers to having 8 of there beers in a months time.Lets see how HopSlam holds up.

Great looking orange body with a white head that fell pretty fast.Alot of bubbles streaming to the top of the glass.

Alot of citrusy and pine smells in there.Like grapefruit and pineapple.

The taste is pineappley but toned down.I would have expected more of a hop bite from the name of the beer.

The mouthful is syrpy and thick but very good and sweet.

I would have liked more hops but we cant have what we want everytime.While this beer isnt as hoppy as some of the double ipa monsters.It is tasty and worth checking out.I plan on having it again.Good job Bells!
