I had the Hopslam tonight. Not quite what I expected. I can understand why it has some great reviews. It's because it has all of the IPA qualities along with a almost bud light smooth finish.
I don't like the honey finish. It was almost like Zombie Dust. When we are talking about an IPA I want the hop finish that I can feel. Why hide it with honey.
I understand why many like this and I'm not saying its not a fantastic tasting beer, because it is. The finish is not though. It's not a pure finish, it's hidden by honey. I love it, but its not my kind of beer.
If that doesn't make sense ill try to re explain in the morning when I'm sober.

No I can't?. We are getting more stuff all the time though.
I see that I guess but I prefer an IPA that is balanced. Hopslam and Zombie Dust are almost perfectly balanced IPA's.
Some people like an almost overbearing hop flavor though.
Racer 5 is another one I feel could be improved. Decent IPA, but many many better out there.

I enjoy it, I like the taste of the beer, initially.
I look the finish I feel on the tongue. Zombie and Hopslam are so smooth that I don't get that. It's really personal preference.
I completely understand why Hopslam is so popular. I could drink it like bud light, it's that smooth.
For me Aussie, lagunitas sucks is the perfect beer. All the flavor of a traditional west coast IPA with a finish that has a presence.

Where are you?
Is modus better?
I am in southern Oklahoma. I travel a lot so I am in Texas almost every day so I can get any thing that either state gets. Both states are starting to have some really good breweries pop up.
I am heading to Austin, Tx in a few weeks. Really looking forward to trying some stuff down there.
Yes. I prefer Modus significantly.
But to be fair I've had Racer only once. Maybe it was a bad batch. If you feel they are comparable, just say the word. Ill give it another try.
I haven't got to try any Sucks yet. It hasn't popped in any of my local stores yet. I guess I am going to have to trek down to Dallas to get some.
Austin is a very solid town. It's got college feel yet has spots to find craft beer. I'd call it Ann Arbor of the Big12
It's worth it.
I have heard Jester King is very good.
Really surprised by how good some of the stuff in Oklahoma is now. Prairie Artisan and COOP Ale Works are both outstanding.
Catch up later!
Ill look out for that @ Binnys.
So you a golfer as well I take it by your avatar?
Actually if you are in Chicago Prairie Artisan will be there soon. If you are a stout fan definitely pick up their Prairie Noir. It is an imperial stout aged in whiskey barrels.
Anybody planning on going to the Great American Brew Festival this year?
I thought about it but I think it is probably too late to get tickets. If not this year than 100% next year.
Golf Professional and PGA member.
Tickets don't go on sale until July or August IIRC.
Oh really. I thought they had already gone on sale. I just might go this year then. I had a friend who went and he said it is a must.
Can you buy stuff straight from the brewery while there? If so I better take a couple grand.
Nice, I play a few times a week if possible.
Get lessons from your local PGA professional
Had to say that haha where in Oklahoma do you live?
