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

On tap. Pours golden with a big white head. Smells and tastes caramel, nutty malty, fruity hoppy with a similar finish.

sawbuck (668) - Round Lake, Illinois, USA - MAR 13, 2016
UPDATED: MAR 24, 2016 Subtle hop aroma with a hint of citrus. Clear light gold, with a huge white head with superb lacing. Fresh sweet malt up front. Sweet caramel, quickly followed by a burst of varying bitterness from fresh hops. Pine, fresh grapefruit, and spicy bitterness melds with a nice alcohol burn on the finish. Light to medium mouth feel. Finish has a building bitterness throughout, fresh and complex. A bit overpriced but unsurpassed quality.

scotchzombie (553) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - MAR 11, 2016
From can to tulip glass. Pours mostly clear orange amber with a yuge foamy off-white head that laces wet and massively. Aroma is sweet orange citrus goodness with ripe peach and a little pine and honey. Inviting. Taste is da bomb. What a sublime concoction of orange and grapefruit citrus, honey, piney hops with a nice dry malt backbone. Awesome balance between sweet honey citrus and piney hop bitterness. One of the best beers I've had for sure. I would pay the $20 for a six pack once a year.

Pours bright orange with a delicate white head. Superb bright tang of pine and citrus in the aroma. Taste is delicious with citrus hops and some sweet caramel malts and some- peach? Overall, a nice bright but mellow bite.

euniceradio (494) - Worthington, Minnesota, USA - MAR 7, 2016
12oz can to tulip. Pours unfiltered bright orange, superb creamy white head. Aroma of honey, bread, light pine, light citrus, grass. Taste of same. Honey and sweet malts are forward, very well balanced with citrus, pine, and bubblegum. Mouthfeel is mod syrupy with good carb. Finish has a sneaky amount of booze. Really balanced for a 10abv brew.

Very hoppy and bitter and lingers well after tasting. Really great finish and one of my favorite IPAs.

12 oz can poured into stemless wine glass. Orange color with a small white head that fades pretty quickly. Aroma of citrus, pine, grapefruit. Taste of delicious citrus hops with some sweet maltiness on the back of the palate. The abv is pretty well hidden for a 10% brew. Pumped to finally get to try this one after hearing so much about it.

A light orange color with a two finger head. Aroma is hops and honey. Taste is a nice bitterness but nicely balance with sweet honey. You can feel a slight alcohol taste in the end of each zip. A good beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
