Being an IPA addict and after having read the reviews I drove about an hour to the brewery and picked up a few growlers. Shocked and impressed that NEBco fills a 64oz growler of this stuff for $10. Bravo. And feel free to charge me $15-$18 next time.
This beer has one of the best smells of any of the ipa's i've tried.
It looks awesome too - golden with lacy, white head.
Tastes good, light and refreshing... and with a mid range abv, it's close to a sessionable beer. It's a little more bitter than I would like, but balanced as other reviewers have said.
Fuzzy Baby Ducks is a great IPA. You'd be a quack not to try it if given the chance, but don't "fly" too far south or north to get some... instead buy some of their canned DIPA (Gahndi Bot) or do a trade. It's as good or better. And we can always hope they can or bottle this stuff because the label would be top 10.

I dont review many beer but this one I had to. This is a non biased opinion even though they are my favorite brewery and easily the best in CT, if not New England. I was also the first person to receive a growler of this!(or so I was told, thought that was cool)
The look of this beer is just a glowing yellow that is mouthwatering.
The smell is pure citra. From grapefruit to lemon, grass, and lime its perfect
The taste is worth saying its the best citra IPA ive had. I run a liquor store and couldn't resist sampling this to customers out of my growler who were worthy of having this. It is so refreshing and light, but full bodied and perfect at the same time. I could drink this beer in the middle of winter, or on the hottest day of the year, which happened to be the day I got it.
Overall I wish this beer was bottled and year round, but I know they cant get the citra hops year round because of the small size of the brewery. Although this will be an awesome treat once a year.
NEBCO just does things with hops/beer i'll never understand and frankly dont care to as long as they keep doing it. I would put this beer up against any across the country anyday. a 10 out of 10 to me, love everything NEBCO does, please dont ever change.

batch 3, 32oz growler filled Saturday, 12/21/13. Consumed Tuesday, 12/24/13.
A - Vibrant orange-reddish hazy body with a couple finger of off-white head. Drops absolutely enormous amounts of lacing all over the glass behind it - the greatest lacing I've ever seen from a beer, bar none.
S - Pine is the first thing that hits the nose, followed by tropical fruit: guava, mango, stonefruit. Bitter orange and lemon as it opens up. Little bits of weed/cat pee. Biscuity malt very noticeable in nose - this is different than prior batch. Pretty unbelievably amazing.
T - Piney and resiny, not normally something I get from Citra. Middle of the flavor is grapefruit, followed by a wonderful fading out of amazing tropical fruit, including a lot of passionfruit and mango. Delicious. Mouth feels "fuzzy" - I imagine this is the genesis of the name. Again, very noticeable biscuity malt. Almost tastes like it has a blonde ale behind it rather than a pale base, there's a lot of malt flavor but not thick or sweet, just flavor.
M - Light and thinner than I'd like. Plenty carbonated. Incredibly crooshable. No cloying sweetness or ashy bitterness left behind, just happiness. Could probably drink a gallon and a half of this in a night easily, and that's not an exaggeration.
O - The King Stay The King.
