Default Oh Dear God Bells Hopslam is amazing

I have never had a beer like this. It literally grabs your face and f**** it silly with hop aroma. Unbelivable. 10.3% !!! WHAT????? No way. Amazing!!! Kudos to Bells I have a new fav beer of all time!

Count me in the list of fans. My LHBS has a clone recipe that I'm going to try, but probably not for a while since Austin Homebrew has their Pliney clone on sale cheap.

Oh yeah, that stuff is the bomb. Just had a bottle the other night. I'm not entirely sure if it's actually beer, I think they squeeze the juice out of a few thousand pounds of hops

Had one on Sat at a beer festival in Grand Rapids. AWESOME! So far I have not found a more hoppy beer. Not just more bitter, but a beer that literally makes you think you are drinking liquid hops. So good.

I asked them what the recipe might be like at the brewery and the guy just said they don't give out that information. You can ask away about Two-hearted, but nothing doing on the Hopslam!

I bet Larry Bell made a deal with the devil to come up with the recipe for this.

Adventures in Homebrewing has a clone recipe in their store called "HopScram". It's not posted on the website, but if you emailed them I'm sure they'd sell it to you.

Never made that recipe myself.

I LOVE this beer. I bought a case when it came to my liquor store (Tuesday). Stopped back in Friday and they were already sold out. This is my #2 IIPA behind only Pliny. Hopslam is awesome. I wish they made it year round.
