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 clear deep gold into a snifter. White head recedes to skim surface. Resin aromas. Soft with hot caramel and resin upfront turning to pith in the lasting finish.

Fantastic double, with absolutely smooth and hoppy finish. I urge everyone to compare this beer to war elephant by Rushing duck!!

Agree with many comments but wanted to add that the fnsh bothers me. I love Simcoe hops but thereís a musty quality that lingers on my palate and drops this brew down a few notches. Itís not a hop flavor I can identify; just a musty, lingering flavor that isnít horrible but not to my liking.

jsporrer (711) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 14, 2016
Poured from a can. Pours a deep golden amber with a medium sixed head of white foam. Sweet citrus with light pine resin aroma. Light carbonation with plenty of lacing. Medium body. Full mouth feel with lingering citrus and pine flavors and a hint of bitterness. Smooth finish with a warming sensation. Solid.

Turboninja (493) - Tampere, FINLAND - FEB 13, 2016
Can@home, from Constantinoís, Cleveland, USA. Medium aroma with pine, citrus and sweeter fruits. Darker golden color with minimal white head and hazy liquid. Strong, balanced and full taste with slightly over aged mango and some citrus. Piney and some grass on the background. A lot of hops. Medium/wide taste spectrum and long aftertaste with hoppy malts and some mango. Medium/strong body with medium carbonation. Overall, huge taste although in a bit simple fashion. Also lacks malty flavors. Still, very high quality, schoolbook like and organic American IIPA.

Poured from the can. Honey amber in the glass with a little chunky haze. Fine bubbled supportive white head. First taste, honey in the front. Sweet and sticky. Nose has some grapefruit in there. Definitely a heavy hitter. Super complex hop board kept in check pleasantly with the malts through the middle. Finish sticks around.

Great citrus flavors and aromas. The flavors left on the palet are welcomed, not too overpowering. Could drink many more of these if they were more readily available.

Thisis12ptfont (1107) - Los Angeles, CA, California, USA - FEB 11, 2016
Aromas of grass, caramel, pine needles, citrus, oranges, honey, candied tangerine and mango juice. Pours a semi deep copper with a hue of golden brightness and aggressive white lacing. Taste brings very harsh bitterness upfront with massive dankness, pines, hop oils just relentless bitterness. Plenty of orange juice, mango, peach peel, honey, caramel and more oils. Finishes dry and bitter with definite malt sweetness, malt syrup, wort and booze. Overall, very impressive stuff that attacks your palate with an onslaught of dankness and bitterness. Fruit/citrus presence is subtle in the back.
