Brewed by:

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.

2014- 4.25: A famous beer on the line of Great Lakes Christmas ale. Only coming around once a year, this is the only beer where I really enjoy the hops. My favorite of all the Bell's beers and I really like Bell's. Good flavor, good color. The only drawback of this beer is the price. Last time I saw it at the store, it was 17 dollars a 6 pack

2015- 3.5: Still complaining about the price, now complaining about the beer. This year tasted more bland. Its just not as good as a lot of other DIPAs on the market
