This is my be-all, end-all brew; my go-to beer in times of indecision. To put it bluntly, this is my favorite beer on the planet. I've felt this way for years, and my opinion is unlikely to change any time soon. On to the review!

It pours a lovely, hazy copper with a pearl-white head. The lacing is very much abundant.

The aroma is huge citrusy, flowery hops. Hops dominate the smell to the nth degree.

The flavor matches the smell. This stuff is ridiculously hoppy. We're talking massively Godzilla-sized hoppy. It's unbalanced, and I fucking love it for that. The thing is, it's so damned crisp and so damned refreshing that I don't care that the malt footprint is so tiny. There's enough malt in there to leave some smoothness, but I want this to be the treehouse for the hops kids. They can put up their "No Malts Allowed" sign. I'm down for one dash of malts in my hop-tastic beer.

The mouthfeel is creamy and medium-bodied. Heavenly, if you will.

I could drink a case of this every day for the rest of my life. Granted, at a deceptive 7% abv, my liver would begin to look like Hans Moleman (look, we've worked two Simpsons references into one review) and I would be smashed off my ass for all of time, but it would be worth it.

To the folks at Bell's Brewery, consider this my love note; my heart poured onto e-paper in ode to your beautiful, perfect libation. I am forever in your debt.

- Hugs n' kisses,
