Fresh Fluff IPAFresh Fluff IPA
Notes: Fresh Fluff started out as our take on making a wet hop version of All Fluff. Hardly a new idea; sub out a hop in a flagship for a fresh version of its self while the rest of the hops in the beer stay the same. So we scrapped that idea. Fresh Fluff is made by subbing out all of the hops in All Fluff with fresh versions of themselves: fresh Citra in the whirlpool and fresh El Dorado in the dry hop! Soft and fluffy with deep layers of melon, grass, citrus, and tropical fruit. Smoothie beer at its freshest.

Can dated 9.23.19

Pours a murky orange/amber. Little fuzzy white head whose bubbles pop pop away.

Nose is sweet juicy tropics. Lush for sure with maybe a grassy balance.

Flavour comes in with the same initial impression of rich sweet mango/guava before building to an almost powdered sugar-dessert sweet kind of finish. Dessert beer for sure. The FH character could be contributing to it, but it gets kind of washed out in some of the NEIPA sweetness. There's some mild pine bitterness on the very finale, but this is a new school IPA through and through.

Medium body maybe? There's some mild small carbonation, but really all I can focus on is the sweetness.

Tasty and true to style, with great juicy (grapefruit and melon) notes and a soft full mouthful. Not sure about the fresh hops...it is a little zippier on the finish than most neipas i’ve had, but other than that, not sure.

16oz can poured into a tulip
Canned 10/04/17

A- pours a deep murky orange-brown color with a one finger foamy white head that has good retention and leaves some lacing behind

S- aroma is of pine and orange for the most part, as well as notes of grass and guava

T- hop profile is subdued up front, but eventually brings out some citrus notes of grapefruit zest and tangerine pith. Mid-palate gives some fresh grassy and melon notes. The finish gives more grass and citrus hop

M- medium-light body with moderate carbonation leads to anfosmy mouthfeel and a crisp dry finish

O- clean and hoppy throughout, it's not in your face like a NE style, but very tasty
