look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5
APPEARANCE: Bright, brilliant orange. Wisps, tiny wisps, of foam cover small patches of the surface after the half-inch head falls down. There is not a whole lot of lacing, but a few very small spots cling to the glass throughout.
SMELL: Yummy. This beer is FRESH. Very piney. Some grass and citrus notes sneak in behind the pine to round it out. The smell really whets the palate for this one.
TASTE: Wow. The taste is just as good as the smell. A wonderfully bitter (and quite grassy) backbone is the base for a wide array of hop and malt flavors to dance around on. The hops contribute pine, a touch of lemon zest and a hint of grapefruit, in addition to that nice grassiness. The honey and malt sweeten it to the point of almost making it a dessert beer. There is a lot going on here.
MOUTHFEEL: Sweet, but balanced. The body is medium to full and it has a very pleasant stickiness to it, reminiscent of Oskar Blues Gordon/G'Knight.
OVERALL: I LOVE Hopslam. This is on par with Hopslam.
Serving type: bottle
