An imperial version of the Single Hop IPA brewed exclusively with the beloved Citra hop- lots more of them- which produces flavors of mango, papaya and citrus that is balanced by a biscuity malt finish

Growler fill(!) from Brewers Tap and Table in Waltham, MA. Not too dissimilar from the OG Fuzzy Baby Ducks but with more oomph. Citrus pith and zest dominate the nose with a light biscuity malt character and no boominess to speak of. The biscuity character continues in the flavors, lending a rustic, drying note to an otherwise hoppy citra onslaught. Citra isn't the most interesting hop for me, but this does taste like the prototypical old school NEIPA in the Heady Topper school.

Off the draft, this beer puts most beers to shame. Bright and forward smell, followed by a dank and fruity taste. This beer is on one to be missed.

A bit underwhelmed... Limited froth... Modest haze... Pleasant tropical aroma... Palate starts sweet before finished with metallic notes... On the lighter side of medium bodied... Smooth and sleek... Goes down easily... Not bad, but not sure this one is worth the lofty rating...

Appearance: Pours a somewhat hazy honey colore wth a firm, one finger head; good retention and squiggles of lacing

Smell: Dank and tropical with citrus peel and an herbaceous aspect; caramel malt makes an appearance

Taste: Tropical flavors forward, with papaya and mango; the dankness builds and is supported by the caramel malts flavors; through the middle, the herbaceous and citrus peel emerge and dominate the finish, though the malt continues to balance

Mouthfeel: Medium to full body with moderate carbonation

Overall: A bit of a melange that shows off elements from New England, the East Coast and West Coast styles; well-constructed

From a 12oz can dated 6/11/21 into a pint glass. The can only says "Double Fuzzy." No mention of baby ducks or such. Apparently it's the DIPA version of their "Fuzzy Baby Ducks" IPA.

Pours a hazy, semi-translucent orangish brown with about two fingers of off-white head. Excellent retention and lacing.

Smells or oranges, pineapple, pine and dank herbal notes. More fruit up front with pine in the background. It's a nice combination.

Taste is more on the dank piney side. Just a little juicy. Good amount of resiny bitterness but also a fairly strong malt backbone. Well balanced brew!

Mouthfeel is slightly sticky. Strong bitter aftertaste. Low carbonation.

This is a really good beer. Complex, balanced and tastes great. With the strong malt presence, it reminds me a bit of SN Torpedo but juicier.
