I am wondering how someone would find out the IP address of a web
server if it were behind a reverse proxy, but still on a public IP?
Say for instance, the website was using CloudFlare, the A record
points to CloudFlare but the website is hosted elsewhere on a public

What motivates the question? 

As one example, if the ultimate web servers are IIS, they tend to leak
private IP's via headers in a few different ways, so that's one
possible method, but before saying too much more I guess it'd be
useful to constrain the question more and know what your goal is.
