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 mostly clear burnt orange with a fluffy white head. Sticky resiny hop bitterness on the nose, slight honey scent, lots of nice juicy citrus and a subtle malt balance. Lots of piney hops on the taste, bitter grapefruit and orange peel, tropical fruits, a nice mellowing honey note, and some biscuity malt character. Quite a tasty beer, granted itís over priced and hyped. The honey kind of cuts the bitterness a bit.

Well not much to add to the reviews of this delicious beer. Iíve had it both on tap and bottled. On tap offers a greater freshness flavor where the hops are just smooth and delicious. Other than that this is an absolute pleasure to drink.

12oz bottle. Cooper color with two finger white head. Citrus aroma. Boozy and fruity taste. Ends bitter. Didnít live up to the hype for me, but still very good.

illiniphil (127) - Nashotah, Illinois, USA - APR 1, 2014
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.
