12oz bottle from Chip’s in OBX. Darkest brown in color with a large lasting light tan head. Amazing aroma of piney hops with roasty and chocolate notes. Maybe some molasses. Smooth and roasty flavor with milk chocolate, dark chocolate, and nice hop flavors. Medium-bodied and very smooth with hop oils. A damn good example of the style, one of the best I’ve had.
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 (693) - 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. BVery (10510) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - JAN 15, 2017

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 (1979) - 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 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 (6371) - 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 (3109) - 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
