Bell's Hopslam American Double Imperial IPA
Hopslam is an American Double Imperial IPA from Bells Brewery, Michigan. It pours a sunny orange color with a finger head on top. This ale is a medium bodied beer; with nice mild carbonation that leaves a smooth oily mouth feel. The quality of the nose on this ale is amazing with intense hops of citrus, tropical fruit, pine, a little bit of funky resin, and grassy aromas and a slight following of malts, honey and biscuit aromas. Citrus and tropical fruit are more dominant followed by the resiny smell giving it a delicious smell. It has a bitter bite with a slightly dry and awesome smooth finish. Bell's Hopslam is certainly big flavored ale from the beginning to the end, and its beauty is in its drinkability.
