Our mega beehive shaped light bulbs are pretty awesome! It's just something you don't see every day! The best thing is that it fits in a standard medium base (E26) socket and it is fully dimmable, just like all incandescent bulbs. With an output of 100 lumens it's not like you'll really need it, but it good to know!
the bulb is amazing, and did not get hot. I was afraid it would put out a lot of heat and it didn't at all. The light is very warm, not to be used for task lighting, but certainly mood lighting - it makes a statement!!
