4.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
On tap at Underground Bluz. Bellís is a brewery that offers very good beers while taking risks on unique formulas as well (Cherry Stout, for example). This is one of their best. And it just so happens to be in my favorite style.
Aroma - Malty with caramel and apricot syrup. A bit bready as well. Citrus and peach also lurking.
Appearance - A beautiful pour with a thick white head and a rich amber color. A lot of lacing.
Palate - Thick and creamy on the palate. Medium-heavy body.
Taste - Surprisingly, very little alcohol burn for a 10.5ABV. The hoppiness of the beer is undeniable, but the bitterness is so moderated by the malty flavor up front that the bitter finish is welcome and necessary. Some pine with the citrus.
Overall - Drinkable and delicious. Give me a night with no where to go and I could get lost in this brew. One of the very best Iíve had.

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

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 wonít 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.
