So is this a 100 pt rated beer because those that reviewed it as such have never had Zombie Dust, Perpetual, HF Citra. Do the ratings on this site drill down to specific hop categories. IE. Is this reviewed as a 100 pt IPA or a 100 pt Citra hop IPA. Either way I am missing the point. Really good beer for sure. 100 pt really good beer. Not so much.
Serving type: on-tap

Poured from a gorwler into a plain tumbler pint glass at Durge's.
A: Poured a very hazy, bright yellow color with a two-finger head of frothy, white foam which hung around for most of the brew, leaving some decent lacing.
S: Lots of complex, fruity and funky hop resins; grapefruit rind, a little catty, lemograss and herbal with flashes of peppery, skunk sweat.
T: Big, brash and citrusy palate wrecked by an onslaught of highly acidic hop resins. Loads of sweet, bright, lemony flavors leap forward with very herbal and bitter hop flavors. A slight malt sweetness tries to cut the palate but this brew washes back with a slightly boozy, sharp and fresh hop whallop.
M: Medium-full bodied IPA with lots of sticky hop resins, although the almost wheat-cracker malts keep things crisp and in somewhat of a balance.
O: The 6.2% ABV is not necessarily a killer but the IBUs will surely inhibit your palate for a while. Calling Fuzzy Baby Ducks "one-dimensional" almost sounds like an insult, but I'll say it with the best intentions. Like they took Alpha Weizen and bred it with Sea Hag, this IPA is the bright, crushing IPA for summer that citrusy hopheads are longing for.
