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.

Poured into a traditional pint glass. Very nice color and a nice head. The aroma of hops was plentiful. The taste was a very satisfying hops deliciousness! Great beer!

Liked the second one better than the first, great hoppy flavor and the honey is just right. Nice Aroma and mouth feel. The Hoppiness is hidden some by the honey but the overall taste is great.
