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 http://www.beernews.org 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!
