This is the beer you work up to. You start your quest, try different shit here and there, sign up for rate beer, rate a little, maybe do some trades, and then this ends up in your cup.
And at that point you tell yourself it was all worth it. This is such a delicious beer. Read all the other reviews if you don’t believe me.
