NOW ARRIVING: Bell’s Hopslam 2011 Batch

A beer that needs no introduction has arrived.  Bell’s Brewing’s now infamous imperial IPA has shipped and is hitting stores nationwide.  (Many places in the U.S. already have received shipments.

Commercial Description:
Starting with six different hop varietals added to the brew kettle & culminating with a massive dry-hop addition of Simcoe hops, Bell’s Hopslam Ale possesses the most complex hopping schedule in the Bell’s 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.

Style: Imperial IPA

Taste Expectations: Big fresh hops.  Citrus, pine & grapefruit.  The bitterness is lessened the honey, giving a caramel- sweet finish.

Availability: 12oz/6 pks.  Draft. New for 2011, Party cans.  Early seasonal each year.

10% ABV
