growler. Deeply brown/black ale w/ khaki/sand head. Coarse malts are actually smoothed out by citrus/Chinook hops. So malty thou! Great NC beer & brown ales usually bore me.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hoppy-Bunny has a thin-to-medium beige head, a dark brown appearance, with regular brown showing up, as the light hits it, and some lacing left behind. The aroma is of a touch of bright citrus, brown bread crust, and Medium Master Chef Coffee. Taste is of brown bread, bitterness, bread crust, a touch of citrus, a ghost of chocolate, and no char. Mouthfeel is low medium, and Hoppy-Bunny finishes relatively mellow and medium dry. For a 7.3% ale, booze is not picked up. RJT

Pours black with a little light tan head and some lacing. Aroma is chocolate and light roast with the some hops in the background. Taste is bitter chocolate, coffee and roasted malt. The hops are subdued. Medium bodied with a creamy mouth feel. This is a less hoppy sublimely self righteous.

Fine beer. It's is dark as night with a khaki head. Mild bitterness. Slight hop aroma. Definite roast as well. A bit sweet. Probably too sweet for my liking. Is like a tad more hop aroma. And maybe a tad more hop taste to play better with the roastiness. A little thin feeling. All in all I like all the beers I've had over the years from the DR this is no different.

3.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
It pours a dark brown with very little light that comes through it. It has a brown head that does produce some lacing. It has aromas of caramel and roast. The combination of spearmint and citrus hops gives it a very perfume like aroma. There are flavors of roast, spearmint notes, citrus, some burnt characteristics, and chocolate. It has a moderate feel with a fairly heavy bitter finish. Overall this is a unique take on a black IPA in that the spearmint gives the roast and chocolate and the citrus hops a sweet tinge to it.

Shift drink at the bar. This beer was flying under the radar with customers. Well built Black IPA, darkest body, roast and malt backbone. Bitterness is on the citrus side and completes Hoppy Bunny.

On tap at Front Street in Phila. Pours a light black/brown. Decent frothy light brown head. Minty, hoppy aroma with mild roast/coffee flavor. Mouthfeel is very light and watery. Not much roast in the flavor. Eh, pretty underwhelming black ipa.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pleasing aroma of pine and citrus hops, roasted fennel, and roasted malt; very dark brown color, opaque, khaki head; flavor of toasted malt with a nice dry, ashy/char finish, ample citrus and train bitterness throughout, licorice notes, cocoa, spicy hops, good alcohol bite; medium body, chewy finish; damn fine black IPA and the best of that style that I?ve had in a long time. 12 fl oz bottle.
