Brew Style: Black IPA
Brewer: Magic Hat
BrewNewb Opinion: Decent Beer
I love stouts and IPAs, so I figure, how can a hybrid be bad?
I poured this into my Samuel Adams, perfect pint glass, and it poured well, an inch and a half of head.
Smells like a good stout. I’m aware of the lack of IPA smell though.
Next to no carbonation.
Sort of a sticky sweetness to the taste, not a whole lot of hops. Tastes more like a black lager to me, than a black IPA.
Still though, not a bad beer… I’ll give this one a “decent” rating.
I’m not blown away by this beer, given that it was called a black IPA. I love IPA… It was not even close to my definition of an IPA, black or otherwise. BUT. I do like it.
