Had this one on my 'wants' for a while. Just did a trade with iceicebaby and he threw this in as an extra, holy balls in my mouth. Thanks dude!
12 oz. bottle poured into a snifter.
Pours a hazy rustic orange hue with a two finger off-white head. Thick, chunky lace holds on to the sides of the glass and it's probably gonna stick there for a while. Smell is dominated by dank grapefruit and brown sugar and lots of it. Underneath that is some spruce and a touch of bready malts...just a fantastic nose with this once. Taste is pretty similar to Hopslam minus the honey. Pink grapefruit up front with a biscuit undertone. Midway some pine and earth emerge on the tongue. Aftertaste is sweet with caramel and orange peel, yum city. Creamy and rich medium to full body with a beefy feel. Carbonation is nice and soft which fits perfectly. Uhhhh, just realized this was 10.4%...seriously? Probably a good thing I don't have another bottle of this in the fridge or I'd be drunk dialing tricks and hoes like a champ. Delicious and smooth, deadly combination. Another killer hop-bomb from Bell's.
