Bell’s Hopsoulution Beer Review

Brewery: Bells Brewery
Style: Double India Pale Ale
ABV: 8%
7.5 Stars

When I heard that Bell’s was adding another IPA to their portfolio, I was a bit excited. The IPA’s that Bell’s has done over the years have been really well done. Two Hearted Ale is consistently on lists of “must taste” IPA’s. HopSlam, while meeting with various levels of acclaim, is still highly sought after and I continue to enjoy it. Oracle is a favorite of mine, as well. What’s great is that these IPA’s all have very different flavor profiles. Enter “Hopsoulution”. This is a very well balanced DIPA (barely so at 8%ABV, but it plays very well) with floral notes in the nose that make way for what turns out to be a “juice bomb” with both tropical fruit and citrus coming through in the body and lingering in the finish. It couldn’t be any fresher. This one was bottled just a week ago. Bell’s did a great job of making the flavor profile here different than their other IPA’s. Cheers!

A craft beer fan since 19, used to look for your non-regular beers on frequent trips to downtown Windsor with friends, at 21 Ken basically took over an entire refrigerator with monthly visits to Merchants. With 5 years of podcasting prior, Ken decided to create the brand and show Better on Draft in the spring of 2015, and began creating his dream of a beer-centric website that wasn't too full of itself. He now runs the board and does a lot of the back office stuff while the show goes on, keeping everyone in line, and the beer flowing!
