3.59/5  rDev -14.3%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a 16 oz can into a tulip glass.

Pours a hazy pale gold color with a finger of fluffy (Ha!) white head. The head leaves a crown of lacing as it settles into a ghostly thin sheet.

The aroma is a bit faint, but brings subtle notes of grapefruit and orange rind, with a hint of mango and pineapple on the back end.

The flavor is very citrusy, bringing notes of grapefruit, tangerine, and lemon before a wave of pineapple and bready malt. Finishes bitter, earthy and piney.

The feel is medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Creamy, with a soft warming from the alcohol.

Overall, a pretty good DIPA that doesn't nearly live up to its predecessor. It's citrusy and soft but lacks that punch of flavor and drinkability that Fluffy brings.

Cloudy with a quickly dying head. Tiny spots for lace.

The the smell weedy.

The start is smooth with a pale malt start. The hop is biting, leaving a long aftertaste.
