Product details

Pouring a pint of this anything-but-sheepish ale will overcome your senses with intense hop character. Dominant notes of citrus, stone fruits, and floral character relentlessly invade your nostrils while the woolly soft malt backbone and slight honey flavor mingle in the background and round out the palate. Hops Lamb deep golden hue produces a firm, billowy, off-white foam head which serves as the vehicle for releasing the uncanny aroma produced by a colossal dry-hop addition. Be sure to maintain vigilance while enjoying this powerful brew - Hops Lamb 10% ABV and huge hop character can easily render you witless.

Due to the high starting gravity of this kit, we recommend pitching multiple packs of yeast or preparing a yeast starter for best results.

This will be my first (and hopefully last) non-5 star NB review. I just popped a couple of bottles of Hops Lamb that have been conditioning for about 4 weeks. They were both completely flat. I will consider myself partially responsible for this, as a general rule of thumb, any barrel aged or beers with an ABV of 10% or higher, I will add CBC-1 yeast during bottling. ABV on my batch of Hops Lamb came out at 10.5%. Against better judgement, I bottle conditioned without adding any yeast. Even though Imperial Yeast A07 Flagship has a stated alcohol tolerance of 12%, I have a sneaking suspicion that the residual yeast has died and there was nothing left to carbonate. It might be worthwhile for NB to add a recommendation on their bigger beer kits to add bottle conditioning yeast at bottling time. I am going to give the remaining bottles a few more weeks to see if there is any chance of a Christmas miracle in April, but I have a feeling this batch is destined for the boneyard (or kitchen sink).

Great beer, unfortunately have not had the real Hop Slam to tell the difference. Great hop flavor and aroma. I will buy this again for sure! Definitely don’t rush this beer, even for kegging. I’m at 7 weeks now and the fusel alcohol taste is practically gone. When I kegged it 4 weeks it was undrinkable.
