Postmortem Brew Review
Brilliant copper color.
Noticeable hops aromas and pretty much nothing else on the nose.
Bubbly, foamy, two fingered near-white head that dissipates very slowly.
Tremendous stringy lacing on glass.
Malts in the background with bright hops at the end.

Active nucleated carbonation.
Medium bodied.

Grim Reaper's Eulogy
With apologies to Theodore Gissell (a.k.a Dr. Seuss)

I might not like green eggs and ham,
But I do like Bell's ale Hopslam!
Hops taste as big as the Hoover Dam.
I do like Bell's ale Hopslam!

10% ABV is in this ale,
Drink too much = EPIC FAIL.
Great hops taste that goes KA-BLAM!
I do like Bell's ale Hopslam!

I would not drink it on the rocks,
I could not drink it in dirty socks,
I might not like green eggs and ham
But I do like me some Bell's Hopslam!

It does not cost a lot of money,
They brew it with a touch of honey,
If you haven't guessed by now, I'm a fan,
Of the ale from Bell's called Hopslam!

Daaymn!  Muaahaahaahaa!
