12 oz can. Pours hazy dull orange with two finger frothy white head, slowly fades leaving scattered lace. Mild citrusy tropical aroma. Balanced malt and tropical fruit, semi sweet taste, dank piney bitter finish. Medium soft feel. Really solid IPA, may not quite up to the hype, but would definitely welcome more.

Fuzzy Baby Ducks poured light orange with about a half inch to inch of foamy lacing up the side of my goblet. I got a nice whiff of general citrus juice but no particular fruit aroma was too predominant. Taste was very nice like fruit hard candy with a bit of piney hop in there as well. A very clean beer did and was not as hazy as traditional NE style IPAs. Very solid little brew here and the label art may be the best out there.

Love the artwork on this can, but sadly that is not graded. Pours yellowish, on the darker side with decent white head. Great smell, with citrus dominating, but slight floral notes as well. Taste is similar. Nice citrus(more orange rind), but there is a floral presence as well. Finishes slightly bitter, but nothing dank. I'd call this a good example of the evolution of east coast IPA, in that it is starting to be more like Tree House with the big citrus notes, but the bitterness of something like Heady is still there.
