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.

Vestergaard (632) - Aarhus C, DENMARK - FEB 19, 2015
3 weeks old bottle thanks to Bursprak! Pours a clear amber with a medium big, white, soapy head. Aroma is very fresh, green and fruity. Greenhouse, tomato plant, Haribo peaches. Very complex upon being so nice and fresh! Taste is very very good as well! Nice, hoppy bitterness and the perfect amount of malt sweetness, which is fairly little. Damn, this is good! Smooth body and medium carbonation. Boom! Just saying: Best IIPA iíve had so far!!

RasmusOtt (1353) - Aarhus, DENMARK - FEB 19, 2015
1 month old Bottle thanks to Bursprak. Pours orange amber with an off white head. Aroma of nice floral notes, citrusy hops, weak "greenhouse" (in a good way), peach, sweet orange, candied peaches, a slight note of honey and sweet malts and some grapefruit. The taste is fairly bitter but has a nice sweetness to it that creates a gentle balance. Lots of peach, big fat citrusy hops, grapefruit, floral notes, sweet orange and weak eucalyptus. Despite my skepticism this did not disappoint me! Wow!

ChrisFields (87) - Ashtabula, Ohio, USA - FEB 19, 2015
Pours golden with a light head that leaves no lacing. Aromas of grapefruit, apricot and a slightly sweet malt bed. Flavor is rich. Resinous pine, sweet fruit and citrus followed by buttery rolls. Finish is dry and has a medium bitterness. The alcohol is masked almost completely. Body feels full and carbonation is mild. Overall an excellent brew. Not sure it lives up to the legends, but certainly worth having.

HughConway (828) - Washington, USA - FEB 17, 2015
Bottle packaged 1/20/15. Aroma of grapefruit, citrus, that passes. Followed by some sweet, well constructed malt, and some bitter. Itís nice - but not worth the hype based on this bottle. Will try and find another.
