Special thanks to PaulTheBeerGuru for putting this on tap at Underground Bluz in Orlando.
It poured a beautiful golden honey color. If this was in a mason jar, you'd think it was some high-end bee nectar. Holding it to the light, you'd think the gods were shining down on this beer. It's pretty.
The smell is of nice, sweet, hops. Just a little bit of bitter hop smell mixed in with the sweet and citrus aromas. My nose is blessed.
The taste is amazing. The Bell's guys knew exactly what they were doing and balanced this thing perfectly. The super-hoppiness is there, but the bitter kick in the balls isn't. Instead, you're greeted with a delicate sweetness that just rolls right past the tongue and leaves a big smile on your face. The beer is smooth, light, flavorful, hoppy and refreshing, without being too much of anything. For hoppy beers, I would consider this one of the most well-balanced out there.
This is now one of my favorite beers. The drinkability is insane. All of the good things about a super-hoppy beer, but with the ability to drink it all night long. That's a good beer, my friends.

This beer came to me a few months ago and I finished all six relatively soon after. It was a slightly sweet dipa with the honey noticeable in the front end of each sip. It was very strong at 10% and a little boozy but I really enjoyed it. I wish it was easier to get because I would buy it often.
