Bunny Green Toe has a surprisingly red body, garnet really, and shining like a gemstone. Large carbonation bubbles release from the glass and jailbreak to the surface. Tiny bubbles crawl up the sides of the glass. The head is made up of pure white foam, both meringue like and craggy, with lacing that glues itself to the glass. She's purty!

The hop profile is very unique. Candied grapefruit and orange peel off the bat is greeted with a solid dose of melon....new-ish German varietals perhaps? Grapefruit and orange are both pithy as well. There's even a squeeze of pine thrown in there. The malt profile is light and complimentary adding clean caramel, in pale doses, that lend well to the candied citrus.

The flavor profile isn't far off. Candied citrus peel leads the way before a peppery alcoholic bite kicks in along with the honeydew mid-palate. Pine picks up middle to end and is met with the citric pithiness I mentioned above. Faint tropicals emerge with some warmth. The malt base, again, is caramel driven but light and very much a base for the hop characteristics. I'm a fan.

A moderately weighted body plays perfectly with an active carbonation that produces a somewhat frothy mouthfeel. The bitterness grows with each drink, eventually reaching just beyond moderate. The finish is bone dry and accentuates that bitterness. I keep reaching for another drink after the last.

Lake Louie has always produced quality beer and Bunny Green Toe is no exception. As a matter of fact it's one of the best beers they have ever brewed. The hop profile is very unique, taking some of the best hoppy elements and throwing them into one. The malt base is simply a canvas. I wouldn't hesitate in picking this up again. Worth a try, no doubt.

Had the pleasure to find a sixth barrel of the lovely Bunny Green Toe. Very nice beer. Really like the hop profile. Mouthfeel felt creamy, a little chalky and flat at first sip. Then this big IPA warmed up a tad and everything is so very beautiful. Good Bunny. Very good Bunny

poured 12oz bottle into snifter. Bottled 5/28/14

A - Deep amber orange with a slight haze and big 2.5 finger white head. Thick cap remains for the session and the lacing is thick and beautiful.

S - Heavy aromas of citrus and floral hops. Mainly grapefruit and blood orange along with lime. Very mild caramel sweetness.

T - This beer has one of the biggest citrus flavors I can remember and I am addicted to it. It is grapefruit, orange, tangerine, blood orange, you get the idea. The grapefruit is the most dominant hop flavor. The malts are laid back with mild sweet caramel notes. Finish is bitter grapefruit with lime notes.

M - It is a lighter body for a IIPA and that is okay. Slightly resinous and sticky.

O - What does this remind me of? A lighter version of Surly Abrasive. It is quite good and I give props to Lake Louie for really hopping this IIPA and leaving the malts hidden in the background. I typically don't enjoy IIPAs as the weather warms, but the lighter body is ideal.

Description says American apa, bottle label says India pale ale, which is what I would go with, better than an apa.

Bought this on a whim in the Wis. Dells.wish I would have bought 3, good beer!

Smells light er and very fresh , I am not good enough to recognize the hop variety, but it is very good.

Nice frothy cream-colored head, nice floral hoppy smell, not huge, though.

This has a good malty backbone, that chewy , maltiness, the way I like it.

Very enjoyable really cold after any summer activity outdoors.

Pick up a sizer if you get a chance, definetly worth the 9 bucks.

Pours a clear, copper color. 1/2 inch head of a white color. Good retention and good lacing. Smells of pine, citrus hops, floral hops, sweet malt, slight alcohol, and a hint of yeast. Fits the style of an American IPA. Mouth feel is sharp and clean, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of alcohol, pine, citrus hops, floral hops, sweet malt, and a hint of yeast. Overall, good appearance, aroma, body, and blend.
