Notes/Commercial Description:
This West Coast IPA was made to be a session IPA. It is very light gold in color with an intensely hopped nose. It has a high citrus hop flavor with a dry crisp aftertaste. If you like the DRIPA and want to last longer, try the Fluffer...

This brew was served on tap at Fifth Avenue in Royal Oak, Michigan. They arrived in generic pint glasses, appearing an overly pale yellow coloring. This supported a half finger tall head of dense white foam, holding nice enough retention. The nose was wonderfully fresh, advertising beautiful fruity and nectary hop varietals amongst a sea of rice, amber, and pale malty toast, lactic creaminess, biting ale yeastiness, powdered cane sugar, and coiny metallics. The flavoring to follow was also fantastic, in all of its freshness of citric and piney hops, showing a bit of a departure from the aromatics. Otherwise the mouth was met with a savory, hop-heavy liquid that was balanced by just the right amount of malty bitterness of pales, ambers, and crystals, crisp metallic bitterness of yeast, dank chemical and Magic Marker phenols, and fumy booze, despite the lower abv. The body was light, and the feel was soft and creamy, leaving the mouth coated, with a light vinous pucker to follow. The abv was appropriate, and drinkability was great.

Overall, we were psyched to get to try this. This was probably mainly because we’ve been waiting for Fifth Ave to replace their rotating Kuhnhenn keg for months now, but we digress. This offering, as opposed to their typical DRIPA, served us perfectly throughout our trivia night. It was light enough in abv and strong enough in flavor that none of the three of us on the team ordered anything else the entire night. Fluffer sits on the bottom tier of the spectrum, just under DRIPA, which is just under TRIPA, so we’ve not completed the trifecta. While the look here is rather weak, just about everything else is fantastic. The nose is incredibly zesty and fresh, and the flavor delivers as you would hope. The lightness of feel actually does the beer well, without becoming too syrupy or heavy, which is why, in big part, you are able to drink these back to back to back.
