Cypress Street’s Beer Geek Tuesday 4/6

Just when you thought you missed the last opportunity for a whole year for a shot a very tasty and well sought after imperial IPA, here is another chance.

Tonight at Cypress Street Pint & Plate – Bell’s Hopslam.  Yes, 1 of a few rare kegs that have found their way to Atlanta after the city drained the assumed first round.  Wes Anderson, beer manager at Cypress got his hands on one of these hard to find hoppy kegs and is featuring it tonight starting at 6 pm.

If you find yourself out of the loop –  Bell’s Hopslam is a double IPA or Imperial IPA released seasonally, and is very limited.  Bell’s only produces this beer for a little over a month and half each year.   In many cities, it sells out fast, leaving many people without.  The name pretty much tells you what to expect — a Hopslam.   This beer has an absolutely fantastic hop aroma.  If you love the smell of hops, you are definitely in the right place.  Expect piney and grapefruit hop tones on your palette.  While it has a slight bitter finish, Hopslam really reminds you first and foremost that hops are a flower.

It’s pretty cool these kegs are popping up now.  There are a couple more tapping soon.  Stay tuned for details.

Hopslam is 10% ABV
