A few times each year a beer that trumps the others commonly available comes out for a brief appearance. Bell’s Hopslam is one of these beers. Available in the winter months for a short period of time, this imperial IPA packs a killer hop punch without being over the top. With demand for this beer growing every year, it has become increasingly difficult to find. These fresh, aromatic beers rule the market for a brief period, with some hop heads even learning when delivery trucks show up at the distributor so they are the first to get it. On average in my area, the distributors that got Hopslam this year got 5 or less cases, making it a very hot commodity.

I was lucky enough to get my hands on a few bottles, so here is my review of Bell’s Hopslam (2013).

The Facts

  • Beer – Hopslam
  • Brewery – Bell’s
  • Brewery Location – Comstock, MI
  • Availability – Winter
  • Style – Imperial IPA
  • ABV – 10%
  • IBU – 70
  • Serving Type – Bottle into snifter
  • Appearance – amber with slight cloudiness.Good white head with a lasting ring and excellent lacing.
  • Aroma – Strong citrus hop aroma with some malt sweetness. Slight piney aroma on the end.
  • Taste – Citrus hoppy taste dominates. The middle is full of malty sweetness, with the finish going back to piney hops.
  • Mouthfeel – Medium mouthfeel. Good carbonation and nicely full bodied.

Overall Impression

In short, this is an awesome beer. Tons of citrus hops dominate this beer and continue throughout to the finish. The aroma matches the taste nicely, and opens up as it warms. the 10% ABV is hidden excellently behind the solid hop character and malt backbone. With a hugely limited release, this is a must-have beer for anyone that loves a good hop forward beer. I strongly recommend it if you have the means.

If you remember, I listed Hopslam as one of my Top 5 IPAs, and this year’s release is keeping it high in that list, for sure.
