COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Starting with six different hop varietals added to the brew kettle & culminating with a massive dry-hop addition of Simcoe hops, Bell’s Hopslam Ale possesses the most complex hopping schedule in the Bell’s repertoire. 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.

MacNJ (386) - New Jersey, USA - JAN 29, 2023
UPDATED: JAN 29, 2023 I purchased a can at Wegman’s, and was really looking forward to it. Been a HUGE fan of Two Hearted for years. Not sure if it was expired or not. Got zero nose from the glass; sniffing the opening of the can revealed a metallic, old hop nose. The pour did not have a head or lacing. The honey did impart a smooth sweetness, which was its best aspect. It was pretty boozy, and the hop bite was harsh and unenjoyable. Hoping to see it on tap in the future to reevaluate because with a 100 rating, it should exceed expectations and Ratebeer is rarely wrong for me.

ST3 (2) - Alabama, USA - NOV 8, 2022 does not count
UPDATED: NOV 8, 2022 I picked up a six pack of the late 2022 Hopslam while we were visiting friends and out of town.This ale has been a trek every year since I discovered it back in bottles and it's been a top annual offering for me. I have now had 5 cans and I had to wait for what I initially thought on the first can to see if that held. To me this round of Hopslam does not taste the same as past years. It's still good but it's not as hoppy or as smooth. I am hoping I am wrong but new owners of brands have a tendency to change the recipe of beer like what happened to Ballast Point Grapefruit Sculpin after Constellation Brands bought them- it used to be a fave now I can't drink it or find it. I will be curious to read what others have to say and I hope I'm wrong. So far I haven't seen any reviews. We usually get a keg delivered at a local restaurant I go to, so I will see how that tastes. Still...

zenkis (1071) - Ogre, LATVIA - SEP 4, 2022
UPDATED: SEP 4, 2022 huge maltiness with earthy, piney hops flavors. touch of honey does not lead to tart aftertaste wich surprised me a lot, rather it gives some live, fresh touch of white wine sour-sweet. very good.

ronaldtheriot (2633) - Laplace, Louisiana, USA - JUL 31, 2022
UPDATED: JUL 31, 2022 Hopslam (2022) has a very thick, off-white head and a translucent, orange appearance, with bubble streams and heavy lacing. The aroma is of white bread crust. The flavor is of strong, but not harsh, hop bitterness, white bread crust, and possible honey. Hopslam (2022) has a high-medium body and a dry finish. RJT

UPDATED: JUL 25, 2022 An excellent beer that actually changes, but remains tasty after a period of time. I buy it in vast amounts and drink it until August when Bells Double Two Hearted comes out!

MaltOne (649) - Wisconsin, USA - MAR 5, 2022
UPDATED: MAR 5, 2022 A beautiful drink. Great balance. Rich. Enough malt to support the massive hops. Superbly inviting/drinkable - while you're still standing.

2OLD4BS (1152) - west windsor, New Jersey, USA - SEP 12, 2021
UPDATED: SEP 12, 2021 Strong fruity flavors that are soaked in heavy alcohol juice. A little bit too strong for my taste. There is some honey in the background.
