COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
S.L.A.S.M. is our most Aromatic IPA. This India Pale Ale is very reminiscent of the hop’s cousin in the Mulberry family. Lots of hop aroma with just the right amount of bitterness as we like to keep balance around here. Between the secret blend of the most DANK hops we can get our hands on and a "more than healthy" dose of double dry hopping, this beer can be announced to the nose from across the room that someone is definitely having a Safety Meeting.

Heavy nose that is very nice. Hops are really delicious in this beer that is a bit heavy but for the most part enjoyable to drink. Had from the brewery.

Tap at Pyramid Scheme. Bit hazy dark golden. Lots of tropical fruit, orange juice, caramel, soft pine cones, some flowers, toffee malts. Over medium sweet and bitter. Medium bodied. Nice!

EithCubes (5557) - New Jersey, USA - AUG 12, 2016
Bottle. Nose is dank but not as advertised, much more in the way of tropical fruit and pine, touch of dough, sugar. Pour is dark amber-brown, hazy and gradient, head jiggly tight tan with a little hint of legs. Taste sweet and rubbery-bitter with lots of dull caramel and some red berry, pine, bark, earth verging on scorch. Full body a little dull, still fresh, not heavy or showing alcohol, and giving just a hint of pumpernickel and toasted bread crusts in the slimy finish. Like it well enough, but not the innovation I’d hoped for. [2016.08.12: 3.0]

Bottle. Orange, lemon, toffee malt, and orange peel aroma. Hazy golden yellow with medium head. Moderately sweet orange, lemon, toffee malt, and moderately bitter grapefruit peel flavor. Good body. Solid.

From the bottle the beer pours an amber color with a medium head. Aroma of citrus and malts. The taste is pretty mild with herbs and some hops. Medium finish.

Caramel, toffee, and pine resin aromas. Taste is very big caramel, pine resin, and grapefruit. There is also some fig flavors too in the finish and after taste. I like this, but it’s more of an English barleywine. Bottled on 5.12.16; maybe I need to try it fresher.

Too alcohol-y. What the fuck is with that name also. Come on with the "quirky" names

Draft sample at Dominion Wine & Beer. Orange with off-white head. Aromas of malt and citrus. Tastes of same. Medium-light body with a dry finish. More malt than hop.
