I was at College Street Music Hall in New Haven last night for a show. They have an insanely good beer selection by the way. They happened to have Fuzzy Baby Ducks on draft. I always remember this being THE beer to get in CT before the whole NEIPA mania took over. Since about 2015 its lost a little bit of its hype in the public eye (although they still get lines for the can releases and have no problem selling out). A couple years ago I remember thinking of it as a lesser beer compared to Tree House, Trillium, Bissel, etc. This was idiotic. Recently ive been having huge fatigue with NEIPAS. Almost all of them seem overly sweet and one note. I have found myself wishing that one of these breweries would make an IPA that was juicy and tropical, but also has a bitter backbone to balance things out and keep you wanting more. Im an idiot again because there already is one, and its Fuzzy Baby Ducks. The pour(s) I had last night were amazing. Super fresh, super tropical and juicy (without being overly sweet), slightly hazy (but not totally thick and opaque), with a nice refreshing bitterness. Reminded me a little of some Hill Farmstead. Overall a perfect IPA. I love you Fuzzy Baby Ducks and Im sorry to have ever blasphemed your name.
