4.27/5  rDev +1.9%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

Poured from a 16 oz can into a tulip glass.

Pours an opaque golden orange color with a finger of creamy white head. The head leaves a beautiful crown of lacing around the top of the glass as it settles into a thin sheet of foam.

Similar to Fluffier, the aroma is a bit faint. There are notes of orange cream, grapefruit, pineapple, and peach as well as some doughy malt and spicy hops on the back end.

The flavor though. The flavor brings a buttload of citrus up front: Grapefruit, orange, and lemon-lime, followed by some mango, pineapple and sugary peach rings. The finish is slightly vegetal and earthy, with notes of green peppers and pine.

The feel is medium-full bodied with soft carbonation. Exceptionally creamy and smooth. The alcohol is extremely well-hidden.

Overall, a great DIPA that is hoppy as hell yet remains well-balanced and surprisingly drinkable. This is a completely different beer from Fluffy and Fluffier, yet it retains the best elements of each to form a truly great imperial IPA.

Cloudy with little to no head. There are some small spots left on the empty glass.

Relatively mild smell for the style. Like the others in the Fluffy series, this one is weedy as well.

The booze is well hidden from the taste while the hop is very strong. The body is a bit oily and the carbonation is low. The finish the like black pepper and I do get a touch of alcohol in the swallow.
