Plus, there was a rumor that Jack was considering going on a hunger strike until Bell's agrees to his demand to produce more Hop Slam.

Lagunitas Sucks is better than this years Hop Slam imo.

It was better last year too.  Hopslam is a good beer for sure, but the rarity of it boosts its reputation into highly sought after status.  I'll buy it once a year, but give me Firestone Walker's Double Jack against it and it's no contest, mostly because it's actually available and not so hard to get your hands on.

The quest is over. It is made by Black Sheep Brewing.  ;)

Would a beer thread be out of line? If not, I nominate Ryan Oldham of OBC to be the moderator.

Jack will pollute the thread with all of his pro-Bell's propaganda...  ;D

Yep, standard black rye IPA.  similar to boulevard's newest release, Grainstorm.  pretty good, though the style really isn't my cup of tea.
