3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Chevy Chase, DC 12oz: Pours a black color with a light brown head. Aroma is fruity, citrusy hops and a light roasted malt backbone. Taste is much the same. The IPA runs circles around the porter in this one. The hop flavour is crisp and fruity. The black provides a canvas upon which the hops paint. Slight roasted malt. Easy drinking. Well-balanced.

pretty awesome beer. big citrus nose and taste up front balanced by roasty sweetness. Pretty thin mouthfeel that piney finish complements quite well. Duck Rabbit does an excellent job.

12oz bottle from Pinnochio’s. Pours a jet black color with a tan head. Aroma is hoppy, citrus. Medium on the palate with average carbonation. Flavor is sweet, malty, a little roasty, a little bitter, with a nice pine hop finish.

Love this one. Great hop aromas of citrus and pine backed up by subtle chocolate, coffee, and toast. The taste is more of the same. DOn’t let the dense black color fool you, the mouth feel is right on the money and never goes syrupy and stoutish. If you see some, grab it and drink it soon. I don’t think this will hold up over time. Needs to be really fresh.

Tap @ fireworks - Pours a deep black with a finger of tan head. Aroma is quite piney and floral. I’m not getting any malt. Taste has the topical IPA character without being very bitter. The malt is adding some weight and creaminess to the palate which is nice. It’s a good gateway beer for folks wanting to try an IPA without getting a bitter hop bomb.

Roasty, perhaps a bit like burnt toast, with a smooth but hoppy finish. Crisp, dry, and light given the alcohol content.

Super fresh bottle. Poured this into a tulip glass and the fresh hop aroma just flowed out. It was an amazing experience. Pours black with a light tan head. Taste is a perfect balance of hops and toasted, chocolaty malt. Coats the mouth and sticks around on the palate for awhile. I have a new Duck-Rabbit favorite.

Bottle. Deep black with a thick, brown head. Nose of tar, pine needles, and cigar smoke. Starts with creamy coffee flavors and black licorice, then a lot of biting hops. The finish is quick.
