4.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured from a bottled dated 01/09/13. Pours a semi opaque amber with minimal head. Nice lacing with minimal film as it goes down. Aroma is kind of weak although I can detect a bit of floral hops, sweet honey, and a bit of citrus. Taste is much better than a smell. Definitely get the honey, grapefruit, passion fruit, and sweet malt. Normally I don’t care for a more malty DIPA but this is an exception. Well balanced and easy to drink for 10%. Not sure it lives up to the hype, but it is definitely an enjoyable, solid DIPA.

A hazy orange beer with a small off-white head. The aroma is dank resin, floral, and citrus. The flavor is honey, malt, floral, and resin.

No beer is better in all categories than hopslam. It is a perfect double IPA. SMOOTH. Plenty of hop bite and bitterness.

Lovely and delicious with great mouthfeel and plenty of malt sweetness.
And hops... Did I mention the hops?

Very overrated beer. The honey completely destroys the bitterness of the hop flavor and is to sweet to enjoy.

Really excellent beer. Extreme hop but as smooth as you can possibly get. You won’t find many better.

On tap. Pours cloudy orange amber with low white head. Aroma of citrus, grapefruit, mango, peach, vanilla, very pleasant! Taste is big resin and fruit bitter up front followed by a very balanced fruit sweet. Body is rich and creamy with soft carbonation.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Bottle 355ml at home, poured into a big snifter. ABV 10%.
I am drinking this exactly 5 momths old, 21st January bottled, 21st of June drank.
Clear body, golden orange in colour, with one finger of slighty off-white head, kind of froathy, with good retention, leaving light lacing on the glass.
Aroma of pine, resin, tropical fruits, light honey, alcohol, even some vanilla.
Great taste, grapefruit, tropical fruits, quite bitter, orange peel on the finish, citrus, light alcohol.
Medium body, good carbonation, very dry palate.
Fantastic, great beer!

Great hopsplosion---a wild hop-forward IPA; nothing I've had before seems to pack so much variance into each sip. Draft. Holy Hound taproom, York, PA.
