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.

kvnstfrd (32) - Branson, Missouri, USA - DEC 28, 2012
UPDATED: FEB 18, 2013 Poured into a pint glass. Poured a bright, orange color with a soapy, lather-like head. Strong smells of cedar sap and a strong, harsh, solvent-like, turpentine/paint-thinner aroma. Taste is like super-concentrated grapefruit, pine needles and alcohol. (There are few things in this world I hate more than grapefruit!) Harsh, prickly carbonation that was actually painful! I only managed to take two sips and poured the rest down the sink. This is the most god-awful thing Iíve ever tasted in my life! I wish I could choose zeros in my rating. This beer doesnít deserve ones.

Pours gold with a frothy white head that holds well; rich passion and mango fruit aromas; oily and bitter palate with a nice finish. My favorite DIPA.

Potent resinous hop aroma. Syrupy rich mouthfeel. Caramel malt sweetness goes well against the hop bitterness. More resinous and herbal hop flavors on the palate

dnstone (3189) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - MAY 1, 2017
Hazed golden with a sudsy white head. Fantastic hop complexity, almost a sweet and sour aroma. Sweet with a medium body, sticky hop intensity and a bite of a bite at the end. Notes: cans from VA.

Cheers to Nevitt for sharing this, I am glad I got a small dab as I was curious to try it after hearing rave reviews though by the time I tasted it I was deep into a tasting so take my review with a grain of salt. Can. Very nice copper color with a filmy white head. The aroma is white pepper and stone fruit. Yeasty, boozy but good.

From can- served in snifter bought in California bottle shop Aroma- hoppy with element of sour Appearance- cloudy Taste-tart, hoppy, bitter. Not one of my favorite DIPAs. Compared to heady topper less hop aroma, more bitter, less waves of hops ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Can at home. Pours clear amber with a quite thick white head. Citrus, pine, honey and floral notes. Very well hidden ABV, but itís very sweet as well...way to sweet for me. And I donít really like honey.

0.355 l can from íDe Bierkoningí, canned in January 2017, thanks for the hint PotjeBier! Clear, amber with a medium large, foamy, almost stable, white head. Sweetish, very fruity, quite resiny and slightly grassy-herbal aroma of mango, orange, tangerine and pine. Very sweet, malty, fruity, extremely juicy and quite resiny taste of massive orange jam, tangerine, mango and pine, followed by a medium long, rather bitter, resiny and slightly herbal-grassy finish. Full body, creamy, slightly sticky and a bit effervescent mouthfeel, very soft carbonation. Damn tasty, really juicy, great mouthfeel, superbly drinkable for that abv. Very good!
