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.

unclefrito62 (410) - Stow, Ohio, USA - FEB 1, 2018
12 ounce can at home. Thick white head, film on glass. Golden orange in color. Smell the hops but not over done. Taste is unbelievable. Mellow taste of hops and honey. I really like. Smooth on palate with the honey balancing the bitter after taste found in most India pale ales. Overall this is really an incredible beer for the style and worth the rating it has received Cheers!

4.3
zubblwump (130) - Michigan, USA - JAN 31, 2018
UPDATED: JAN 31, 2018 Light translucent amber with clingy white head. Subdued but very nice hoppy aroma. Very smooth, full body. Hop bitterness on the tongue, riding on the back of a sweet spicy, strong malt backbone. This is a very good beer.

4.4
mhuntsman (27) - Kansas City, Missouri, USA - JAN 28, 2018
UPDATED: JAN 28, 2018 On tap at ITAP Xroads. Aroma 8/10: Tons of classic hop aroma. Pine and dankness abound in this beer. Appearance 5/5: Dark golden/orange hue. Thick and sticky off white head with substantial lacing. Palate 5/5: Thick and full bodied, but not overbearing like I would expect a 10% beer to be. Taste 7/10: Resinous and dank flavors with enough malt substance to balance it out nicely. Finishes sticky with a bitter aftertaste that overstays its welcome. Overall 19/20: This is good. 4.4

4.2
MavDunk (142) - - JAN 28, 2018
UPDATED: JAN 28, 2018 On tap at Sir Ben’s. Scent is floral notes and honey. Taste is hoppy, malty, and slightly sweet from honey. A great blend of flavors. Finish is dry but not as much so as would be expected from a dipa. Light mouthfeel. Possibly my new favorite IPA.

4.2
ttoadee (1692) - Austin, Texas, USA - JAN 28, 2018
Cystal clear gold pour, over a finger of off white head, patchy lace. Nose is piney, with a floral hint. Bitter. Middle is nicely carmelized malt, grapefruit pith, candied orange, resin. Finish shows bitterness from both hops and alcohol, and a nice tug of war between a big malt body and that lingering bitterness. Can't believe how balanced and inviting a beer of this magnitude can be. Try it.
