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 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.

Listigovers (1999) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 4, 2019
UPDATED: AUG 4, 2019 Beautiful golden clear pour with lively carbonation and dense off white head. The name doesn't lie. Truly an epic hop bomb of all characters, some resin, some florals, but overall smooth and very bitter. Full bodied and the honey is subtle but present. Long aftertaste, very aromatic, excellent!

beerfest5 (1551) - Cloneen, IRELAND - JUL 9, 2019
UPDATED: JUL 9, 2019 12oz can at home. Pours a deep gold almost amber colour with a large pillowy white head. Aroma is grapefruit, tropical fruit, some caramel. Flavour is hoppy yes, but there’s a sweetness from the honey that’s a little too tough. It’s very good and very complex but I think some of the hype has made this be such a highly rated beer.

UPDATED: JUN 16, 2019 Goos grief this is good. I usually avoid high hop beer but HopSlam is hop abundant without the in your face kick. Potent so stay at home with your 6 pack.

evergreen0199 (4409) - Northwood, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 28, 2019
UPDATED: APR 28, 2019 Can hauled back from the States by Rian (thanks to him). A hazy orange/amber coloured pour with a healthy white head on top. Hoppy, malty, caramel aroma. Tastes hoppy, malty, caramel, some honey and pine too, slight bitterness. Nice DIPA, great to have finally tried this one.

Sweet, malty, hoppy aroma. Incredibly well-balanced taste, with strong malt flavor along with big hop character. Fantastic beer! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: APR 21, 2019 The end of winter tells me this incredible brew is coming! Holy cow! Can’t go wrong with this brew unless you drink the entire 6 pack

3.9
MrBeerFanatic (1273) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - APR 6, 2019
UPDATED: APR 7, 2019 Can 12oz. Pours a clear medium amber with a light creamy head. Aromas pop of floral honey/hops, citrus, fruity. Flavors citrus, floral, pine, slight alcohol in the nose. High bitterness, dry, medium sweetness. Overall after all the DIPAs I've tried for so many years this DIPA doesn't as far as my palate is concerned stand out as the best. It is very good yes, but not better than several DIPAs I've tried. Perhaps a little overrated. Very well done overall just a little over hyped. I will need to try this again in a glass bottle and check the date. I may have had an outdated can.
