A - Very dark brown color, deep red around the edge of the glass. Creamy brown head 2-3 fingers. Good retention and lacing.

S - Citrus and floral hops upfront. Roasted malts come through as well. Some cocoa. Very hoppy dark beer

T - Picking up everything I got in the smell, Definitely like a black ipa. Very piney and bitter citrus flavors. Roasted malts are coming through as it warms up, but still a very strong hop presence. Slightly metallic bitterness on the back end, seems stringer when cold and fades as the beer warms. Best after being out of the fridge for 20 minutes or so.

F - Strong carbonation that works very well here, giving it a mouth feel like an ipa.

Another very good beer from duck rabbit. I wish this one was more common, hard to find outside of bottle shops, even in NC. Would like to see this one on draft a little more often, Ive had it at festivals and would order this beer regularly. Great hop lovers beer from the dark beer specialist.

I might've entered my rating a little early, as this drink got better over time. Right out of the fridge, the flavors seemed timid and not all that complex. As the beer warmed up, the foretaste seemed more and more "stouty" while the aftertaste developed a hoppier tone. Nice roasted malts up front. Smooth on the tongue. And very pleasant hops in the gullet. Don't confuse this with an Imperial Black but do give it a try... just let it sit a while before you make up your mind.
