BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Bell's Brewery, Inc.
Michigan, United States

Style: American Double / Imperial IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 10.00%

Availability: Winter

Notes / Commercial Description:
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.

Finally get to try this one. Have been looking forward to it for awhile. Golden hazy color. One inch fluffy head. Malty sweet aroma hits you first. Then the hop smell comes through. The flavor of this is very well balanced. Grapefruit, caramel, hops. The honey makes a nice touch of sweetness.This is a very good beer. Only complaint is it is just a touch too sweet. I would like a little more of the fruit to come through and a little less sweetness, then I’d give it a 5.
