COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Starting with six different hop varietals added to the brew kettle & culminating with a massive dry-hop addition of Simcoe hops, Bellís Hopslam Ale possesses the most complex hopping schedule in the Bellís repetoire. 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.

Pours a hazy yellow orange with a full white head. Flavor is grapefruit, orange, with a complex hoppiness. It has a nice balance that is probably due to the honey although you don't taste it. A very good double IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12 oz bottled 7 weeks prior. Aroma is wonderful and fruity. Faint grapefruit. I personally didnít sense the honey, but willing to try again. Solid DIPA.

Can this style possibly get any better than this? Heaven on earth , sublime perfection. Lovingly crafted. On tap at Tap and Mallet Bellís total tap takeover. Clear, gold, nice lacing. Nose is floral with plenty of tangerine, and it exploded in intensity. Soft beautiful mouthfeel. Alcohol not detected.

Sweetish malty aroma primarily piney hops. Taste is a malty hop bomb. Hops are piney primarily but some citrus hop in there too. Honey sweetness comes through as well. Alcohol is well masked. Full flavored and well balanced. Does not have too much of the resin hop finish. The sweets seem to balance that out. I put this a notch below the top DIPA's. Primarily due to slightly too malty and sweet from the honey, and some due to the hop profile not being quite as good as a heady topper or stone enjoy by. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
