opaque black mahogany with a thin beige head. medium body with high carbonation.
aroma: citrusy hops with notes of black malt and dark fruit.
taste: astringent piney hops, black roasted barley, a hint of caramel, and intensely bright and minty late hops.
i prefer earthier, more pungent hops in a hoppy black ale, rather than citrusy and minty hops like this.
Pours a black from a bottle, faint pine and slight mint aroma. Similar flavor with a bit o coffee thrown into the mix. Good beer. freekyp (2387) - Thomasville, North Carolina, USA - SEP 6, 2017
One of the better black IPAs out there, Hoppy Bunny pours up dark brown with red highlights and a sizeable tan ring of head. Deeply roasty aroma with lots of piney resinous hops. Thick creamy mouthfeel. Flavors of bakers chocolate, smoke and prickly pine with hints of spearmint in the background. Rindy earthy bitter fade.

Very dark burnt brown pour with tan head. Aroma is roast chocolate malt with pine and citrus notes. Taste leans toward overly roasted almost burnt malt. Initials taste bites the tongue. As it fades, it becomes more pleasant. zoucrew102 (2048) - - MAR 18, 2017
Bottle. Roasted malt aroma with chocolate malt, and pine resiny and citrus hops. Pours black with a large mocha brown head that has excellent retention and good lacing. Starts with roasted and chocolate malt flavors. Finishes smooth and dry with citrus hops and slight pine resiny bitterness. Great black IPA. cobaink2 (765) - seattle, Washington, USA - FEB 15, 2017
Bottle from tavour. Nice whiff of hops that comes once poured. Thick black pour with wheat appears to be malty grains. Tastes of dark Malts and dank hops. Really nice play on the style. Fantastic.

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 (2025) - 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 I’ve had in the past. Duck Rabbit is nailing their landings!
