What's on the Can/Website: "This Northwest take on a New England style IPA is easy drinking and fluffy, just as the name suggest. Look for fresh squeezed orange and apricot juice along with billowy mango and pineapple characteristics. A soft body, with a smoothie-like mouth feel lends perfectly to the overall beer. Even with this style seeming to be all the rage right now, we think it’s All Fluff."

REVIEW:Appearance (5%): Poured hazy light orange into a pint glass. Very frothy white head, good lacing at the top of the glass. 4.5/5
Smell (25%): Lots of tropical pineapple and apricot. Creamy and fruit-packed aroma. 4.5/5
Taste (40%): Some resin and malt upfront, transitions into smooth tropical pineapple and apricot. Consistent flavor throughout, even on the aftertaste. 4.5/5
Mouthfeel (10%): Medium-bodied, some carbonation. Very juicy with slight dry tongue. 4.5/5
Overall (20%): An outstanding IPA. This is more the Matchless beer I hoped for after having Hops the New Fruit last year. To me, a nice take on the New England style, and delicious. 4.5/5
Final Weighted Rating: 4.5/5
