    Hi,

    I love the hop profile of Bell's Hopslam (specifically the fresh "grapefruity" flavor), but can't seem to figure out which of their six hops it is that I'm attracted to. I've been trying to figure it out, as I'd like to try to find some other beers that are similar in flavor. I thought I had identified the hop as Simcoe (as I think that's the one they add as a dry hop), but after trying Weyerbacher's Double Simcoe IPA, I realized that wasn't it.

    Anyway, just thought I'd see if any of y'all might now which hop dominates (if any). Or at least see if anyone could recommend a similar-ish DIPA!

    Thanks,
    Alyson
