Hopslam is a seasonal beer from Michigan brewery Bell's Beer, and it's always terribly popular during its very short release season. (Good luck finding it - our grocery store sold out in 24 hours.) If you love hops this is your beer. It's incredibly citrus-focused, with the intense juiciness of grapefruit, the herbal aromas of hops, and a tingling bitterness finished with sweet honey. Via Bell's 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 repertoire." If you're into IPAs and hoppy beers, this is a great winter treat.
