Bell's Brewing HopSlam ALE!

So after a typical Tuesday at the office it was time for a beer.  I raided my stash fridge, which typically houses my favorite, off the wall, and special beers.  Today was the day to try one of the beers I won at the last NFBL (North Florida Brewers League) meeting.

First off, I love the label on this beer, man being smashed by a giant hop, that is only a premonition of what is to come.  The beer pour smoothly into my pint glass, gold to light amber in color with a 1/2" white head and the kitchen begins to smell like a hop farm....I'm falling in love and I have not even tasted it yet.  The aroma of Hopslam is floral, earthy, fruity and citrusy.  The flavor is malty sweet at first with slight hints of toffee for a split second, then like a platoon of warrior hops (no pun intended) the citrus, and pine take over and the taste of bitter hops over take your mouth.  This is a hop heads delight!  It packs quite a punch at 10%abv!  Pick one up and try it!  Hop Heads REJOICE!
