I might just have to move there for a few days and help to alleviate the surplus. LOL

I was just informed today that it is going to be here by the end of the month,without even asking,wow!. I always like a well informed worker in a grocery store liquor department that know what they are doing, most of the time none of them know anything about beer. An old lady too, mind you.

I'm drinking one now (on an empty stomach, so mindful of the 10% ABV!) and it's pretty good. I think it's better than the 2012 version, but I think I liked the 2010 version best out of all of them.

It's good, with great aroma, and just a tinge of sweetness on the swallow with the bitterness behind the sweetness.

Would anyone hate me if I said I'm not all that impressed by the Hopslam?

Because I'm not.

I think it has an odd sweetness and syrupy mouthfeel that feels like it finished too high. The aroma from the Simcoe seems overly garlicky and sticky-rotten citrus. And the flavor is kinda "meh".

I'll enjoy it, yes, but I've had better DIPAs.
