The 50th batch by my new favorite brewery. Call me biased. Muskegon needed this. Everyone needs this. If you thirst, go stick your face in this, lad! Be quenched.

A tulip, enticing and elegant, suits this. A beautiful pour. A luscious and overflowing head of density and glory tops this crown jewel of batch 50. Every moment is soaked into the senses. Lace flings this way and that as the contents disappear and new pours begin the affair anew. A dusky shade 'tween copper and gold sits at the ready.

The nose is heaped with notes. Described as "irresponsibly overhopped" yet it is overwhelmingly right and righteous. Loads of citrus. Grapefruit and sugar. Orange peel and sugar. Clouds of pungency are waffed off this creation. Glorious grains. Intoxicating beauty.

The flavour sets off an uncontrollable urge to consume and consume again. All the majesty of the nose culminates in a flamboyant traverse of the palate. Sweetness cut by a bitterness fit for perfection. Fruits of any imagination can be found here. Call them what you will so long as you proclaim their greatness. This is cut from the same harvest you seek year after year. It is right under your nose, traveller, no need to seek over vast miles. Get slammed right in Skitown.

Mouthfeel is spot on. Flowing nectar. Dangerously easy to imbibe.

Overall this has all of the magnitude of a celebratory creation. Worthy. A belly full of history lies within the author at the time of this proclamation and the belches of hop are good! So good! Look yee no longer, pilgrim. Go fill your cup. Be not a fool, but be wary of me though. For a fight to the death over the last pour is where this warrior is prepared to go! Thanks be to Unruly for quenching me on a cold winter's night that was so deep in cups full of this escape into the vast expanse that hop and grain provide. A light in the dark for Muskegon. Wake up and take yourself a taste of what they've made for you! You deserve every drop. Soak it up. Peace be with you.
