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.

Bought 6 pack 12oz cans(18.99 plus tax) @ Krogerís grocery store in Midlothian,Va on 2/8/17. Surprised to find it there! Poured a deep golden color and right away the hops and sweet honey came out! Very very subdued beer with the hops coming across your tongue in stages and the honey rounding out the edges! Very balanced with the malts lying underneath but noticeable! Not smack it your face as the name suggests! Otherwise a Great IPA!! Only setback is the price point - 18.99!!! There are other IPAíS for less. Bellís has to consider that other beers has past this beer! GGreat beer but time has caught up! 1st time drinking this and even I know this!

MadRobin (2928) - Silver Spring, Alabama, USA - FEB 8, 2017
Poured from 32 oz. "Crowler" can. Clear, honey-cold with a 4-finger off-white head and excellent lacing. Aroma of mango, peaches, tangerine, pineapple, honey, forest duff and floral hops. Taste of tangerine, peaches, pineapple, resin, mangos, caramel, cloves and floral hops. Medium/full body and medium/high carbonation with a silky mouthfeel. Fruity, complex and delicious. Each sip brings more flavor to explore. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: FEB 28, 2017 Encinitas w Bri. Can. Peach, mango, honey, resin. Sweet and well-balanced, not a hop bomb. Super smooth, canít taste the 10%. Lots of hype and it comes close to living up to it!

12 oz can(s) from Mile High Wine & Spirits. Clear golden appearance with a fluffy, lacy white head. Aroma of piney/zesty/juicy hops, grapefruit, resin, earth, toasted malt and a touch of honey. Similar flavor, adding moderate hop bitterness and balanced by a mild malt sweetness. Medium to full body with a resinous, slight boozy finish. Good, but overrated.

Can. Floral hop aroma with notes of grapefruit, stone fruit and a touch of honey. Pours clear honey-golden colored with a large soapy off white head that has excellent retention and lacing. Starts with grapefruit hop citrus as well as notes of stone fruit. Finishes dry with floral hop bitterness coating the palate with a bit of honey cutting through the hops for a bit of sweetness. Delicious IPA!

beer_queue (136) - California, USA - FEB 2, 2017
Packaged 01/23/17; 10 days old at time of sampling. Pours gold with a thick white head. Pretty muted nose; only a bit of floral/piney hops coming thru. Flavors arrival with a big hop kicks, full of floral hops. Moves on to a citrus fruit & caramel/honey sweetness. Finishing off with heat from booze and lingering piney hop bitterness. Substantial body with medium carbonation. Overall, its hop profile is lacking in complexity and strength but has a good amount of sweetness; canít deny that itís a super delicious DIPA, tho. I just expected much more from this legendary brew and was a bit disappointed.

Happy to find this in town as my 1200th review came immanent. This beer is so smoothly done, so clean, that i donít miss the rough angles or the over-powering of other beer i rate this highly. Mossy tangy aroma, with alcohol & caramel. flavor of lemon, resin, in a non-static balance. Great on the palate.

googleimage83 (141) - Ontario, CANADA - FEB 1, 2017
Gorgeous honey peach pour, nice cloud, clingy lacing. Aromatic peach, honey, mango, tangerine, pine - danky, fruity, malty. Taste is silky smooth, juicy, bready, sweet, grassy - everything an IPA should be; flavours are bold but perfectly balanced - shocking that this is 10%. On my shortlist of the best beers Iíve ever had.

12 oz can. Packaged 1/23/17. Pours a thick, well retained, off white head, with moderate lacing, over a clear effervescent, gold (SRM 5) body........nose is pine, resin, grapefruit, light allium, floral honey, mild cracker, balance to the hops.....taste is mildly floral honey sweet, with light cracker, slight bread from the malts, pine, resin, citrus with grapefruit, tangerine tones, hints of allium, finishing with lingering moderate bitterness, balance slightly to the hops......mouth feel, medium body, alcohol warmth present, high carbonation. This is very nice I/DIPA, with the malts and added honey balancing the hops. The only flaw is the light allium in both aroma and flavor. This is most probably from the dry hopping with Simcoe, whose personality can be variable from year to year, as well as time of harvest. BJCP 7/3/14/4/7

Clear deep golden hue with a fluffy white cap. Bi resinous and floral nose with semiperfumey hop bitterness and fresh earthy hop resins and a minor bit of caramalt and a kiss of booze. Big resinous flavor thatís leafy and dank and piney and complexly boozy but resiny and slightly lupuliny. Amazing and bold and complex.
