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.

A: looked fantastic with beautiful FL sunshine peering through the golden hop goodness.

S: I smelled it a lot.

T: great blend of flavor and bitterness. You could have told me the ABV was 6%.

MF: something I could drink everyday, all day.

O: Loved this beer. Much better out of the bottle than the tap that I had here in FL. I haven't had earlier versions of Hopslam but I will definitely have future ones.

Update: had a bottle from same batch 2.5 weeks later and the hops had fallen off a bit, still a great beer though.
