COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The Duck-Rabbit Hoppy Bunny American Black Ale is both intensely hoppy and intensely BLACK! Eight separate hop additions offer delicious bitterness and beguiling hop aroma/flavor. Heavily represented among these hops are Chinook, which provides deep pine and sticky citrus components and a New Zealand hop called Motueka, from which we get bright fruit and spearmint notes.

UPDATED: MAY 11, 2014 bought a bottle at zillies market on Ocracoke. Pours deep black- beautifully opaque with a thin tan head. definitely something to this one- pours more similar to the stouts I have been drinking lately than your typical black ale. Lots of hops- piney with sweet toasty warmth from the hops. the NZ hop- Motueka- is a nice touch. something different that makes the conoisseur go mmmm. chocolate, earthy, sweet, hoppy. my favourite offering from duck- rabbit. 05/10/14 Had as part of flight at Juicy Lucys. Best one of the four. Still really good- smooth. Average mouthfeel- not super heavy. All flavors play nicely together. Smooth, but not sweet. Hoppy, but not bitter. Excellent.

Bitter and rich. Nice dark ipa. Aroma is hoppy and has some floral, but more woods. Color is black and transparent. Nicely done. Tap

DocJitsu (1821) - Pensacola, Florida, USA - OCT 1, 2016
Pours a dark brown with a healthy tan head. Grassy and citrusy notes on the nose. Dark roast malt wafts out as well. Full mouthfeel with some puckering astringency late. Better balance of the hop character with the malt than most, if not all the black IPAs Ive had in the past. Duck Rabbit is nailing their landings!

sloshgator (725) - Orlando, Florida, USA - SEP 11, 2016
Duck-Rabbit Hoppy Bunny is a solid BIPA. Pours dark with light tan head. Mild fresh hop aroma. Taste is mostly bitter with a bit of chocolate on the backend. Hoppy Bunny is enjoyable but not a standout.

joeneugs (6105) - Livermore, California, USA - AUG 3, 2016
Bottle. It pours a dark brown/black color with a foamy light brown head. The aroma is hoppy with strong pine and treacle, molasses, a little cocoa and toast. The flavor is the same. Pine, roasted malt, treacle and molasses. Lots of piney, roasted, smoky bitterness. Full bodied. A good, powerful black IPA.

AWISLguy (2706) - Wisconsin, USA - JUL 28, 2016
12oz bottle from Appalachian Vintners in Asheville. Dark brown pour with a beige head leaving spotty lacing. Aroma has tangy raisins, chocolate, espresso, and caramel. Taste is of sweet caramel malts, light grapes, cocoa, some espresso and some licorice. Medium bodied with soft carbonation, some alcohol and a solid blend. Finishes to the sweet side of bittersweet. Reasonably solid for style. 13.9

slowrunner77 (10739) - Reno, Nevada, USA - JUL 26, 2016
looks like a dark porter - smell and flavor are really nice balance of pine sap and earthy spicy hops, and roasted chocolate and coffee malts. Moderately bitter, complex yet easy drinking.

ronaldtheriot (1842) - Laplace, Louisiana, USA - JUL 16, 2016
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
