3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
35,5 cl bottle @ olio. Thanks tiong!
Aroma is sweetish with exotic fruits, caramel, some resin, hints of hay and honey. Flavour has lots of hops, caramel, fruits and some resin. Quite typical American DIPA, reminds me of SN Hoptimum. Nice.

From a bottle dated 1/3/13, thanks to my cousin for shipping this to me. Pours a hazy straw color, full finger of white foam which recedes into nice lacing. Aroma of citrus, floral, herbs. Taste, medium sweetness, notes of honey, pronounced hop presence. medium body, lively, somewhat bitter finish. This is an outstanding DIPA. I look forward to sampling again in the years to come.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a hazy straw color with a very thin white head. Nose is sweet malty and honey with prominent floral notes. Taste is grapefruit, honey, and a tart bitterness. Medium bodied and with more sparkle than expected from the lack of head. Much more interesting flavor-wise than many aggressively hopped beers, with fruitiness and honey being more apparent at first than the strong hops which come afterward then fade quickly.

4.8 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Bellís Hopslam has lots of complexity making it deserving of its high rating. Aroma is very floral. Appearance is slightly cloudy and similar to a fine ale. Initial taste hits you with all kinds of flavors with a big Citra hops citrus note at the end. The Citra flavor stays on the palate and is not washed away by excessive bitterness. Hopslam lives up to the hype, but it is not the be best Iíve had in this style.

4.8 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Aroma: Grapefruit, pineapple, and apple on a soft, piney background. Appearance: Creamy white head; golden apple juice body. Nectar of the gods. Taste: Dominant pineapple sweet tang up front with a bitter, floral hop and honey finish. Palate: Light, crisp, and as refreshing as iced tea.
I bought four cases of this stuff, so it must be amazing. Every bottle amazes me, even months after release.
