I poured this into a ipa glassglass, it has a copper color body with a small thin head.
The aroma is bready/malty with a little grain coming through. The taste is like the smell, bready with a slight alertness. It also a little pepper on the back of the tongue. I dont get a lot of hops.
The mouthfeel is good and overall it is ok, nothing to brag about.

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.
