Default 2012 Hopslam

Got lucky last night, I was going for a regular beer run and was going to checkout then saw the sign Bells Hopslam available here! Got a sixer for 20 bucks!! Question is who's looking for a beer trade? Second is this beer good to seller? Will is got better with age?

Heavily hopped beers are meant usully meant to drink soon,but some people dont mind age on them,although more of the malt sweetness may start to show and hops will loose their potential.You will find people or hopheads would preferr to get them when they come out.

$20 for a sixer, yikes. A few years back it was $8.50.

I'm not really sure about that but it's one of their limited releases to that's kinda calls for it. They don't have a problem selling they guy at Wegmans told me that they just got them in yesterday and I took the 2nd to last pack. They had 36 6packs!!

Bell's Hopslam....similar to Pliny the Elder, but a little dryer and a more honey - alcohol finish! Nice!!!! $21.00 for a Growler and happy to pay it in the state of Alabama! (they do not under stand good Beer)!

Good idea, i may save two and try one a 6 mo,and one @ a year. Im enjoying my second one more than my first one(2012-same batch) for some reason it seemed slightly sticky sweet, but this ones seems to have a drier citrus cleaner finish,guess it is what i ate that day or today. This one is dryng my whole mouth out/ and teeth from the hops I just like that this year im really noticing the honey quality it has in flavor and aroma. I had a hard time noticing that last year,but then again my palate has change since.I dont think the same beer always tastes exactly the same either.
