I was trying--trying for ages--to write up one of my patent "high concept" reviews regarding this beer. It was about how Magic Hat was originally a white supremicist brewery called "Magic Hate" and this here beer was meant as a grave celebration of the extent to which the Beatles ripped off black R&B groups. But what place is this for social commentary? Hmm? No place. No place whatsoever.

So... umm... this tastes like a black IPA, kinda, but also like a rye PA. It looks like a regular old IPA.

Rounded rye starts things out, dark barley with very light hints of chocolate. But then the whiteness commences: the rye tang, followed by citrusy American hops. Ends bitter with a little bit of yeast rumbliness.

3.8/5  rDev +5.8%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Three inches of fluffy foam cap a marginally opaque reddish brown body. Brown sugar and walnuts with a touch of oats are present in the nose and carry through into the taste but hide behind the bold rye front. It reminds me of 100% Whole Grain Brown Irish Soda Bread, so I almost forgot that I was drinking a beer and broke out the margarine. The nostalgia factor may be biasing my review, but I quite enjoyed this experience and would recommend that the reader pick up a single to try.
