Beer Release News: Bell's Hopslam

One of the most anticipated beer releases of the year is coming to a shelf near you. Originally reported as a late January/Early February release; some news that comes from and Bells’ twitter account that they will be expecting Hopslam to arrive this week! Rejoice hopheads and beer lovers!!
In the dark about Hopslam? Here’s the 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.

There goes my paycheck! If you are in Iowa and have seen it, please let me know!

And I was leaving very early the next morning….
