Hopslam by Bell's Brewery, Inc.

Quick note, if you get the chance, check out the movie 127 Hours.  I saw it last night and thought it was fantastic.  The story is truly inspirational.

Beer #90 is Hopslam by Bell’s Brewery, Inc.   From Michigan by the way of fellow blogger Scot, http://blog.twobeerdudes.com, comes this American Double/Imperial IPA.  The ABV of this DIPA clocks in at 10%.

The color was a slightly hazy copper with a nice two finger width foamy white head.  That head left some excellent lacing in my pint glass.  The aromas I got from opening the bottle made me smile.  There was some nice grapefruit, pine, a bit of lemon, & floral aromas along with something sweet.  After reading the label, I think the sweetness comes from the honey.  The bitter hops kick in first in the taste followed by the grapefruit/lemon flavors with a nice bitter hoppy bite at the end.  There was a slightly sweet taste going on in here also.  It had a nice medium body with some nice carbonation that sort of coated the tongue.   The 10% ABV was hidden really well but it will bite you if you enjoy this too quickly.

Delicious…this was right up my alley.  DIPA FTW.  Good stuff from Bell’s…enjoy it if you can get a hold of it.
