look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Poured into pokal in respect of the hybrid style. Dimly translucent orange-brown with a moderate white head that fades slowly leaving fine lacing in dense rings.
Smell is toasted grain, rye, piney hops.
Taste starts out nicely; delicately bitter piney hops dance with spicy rye grain and clean malt, before it all washes down leaving a nutty aftertaste that is a bit disconcertingly sweet, but the lingering hop bitterness balances it enough to be ok. Aftertaste is surprisingly clean with how much is going on in the flavor.
Mouthfeel is medium and creamy, nicely carbonated, easy drinking.
Overall, the rye grain really shines in this one, although whatever that sweet bit of the aftertaste is is a little odd. But I guess it wouldn't be Magic Hat without something a bit off. I jest though...#9 may be crap but this one's not half-bad.
