Malt: two row, crystal, wheat, chocolate and roasted barley
Hops: nugget, cascade, CTZ
Brewed on St Patrick’s Day for an Irish man named Paul Columb, M.C. stand for Mr. Columb according to the tea toddlers but we all know it stands for something very, VERY, bad to others (miserable c**t) and is what Mr. Columbs sometimes references people as. MC Ale combines the dark flavored malts of a stout with the bold citrusy hop flavors of our IPA.

This ale was called McHale’s Black IPA when we visited the brewery on 08/30/2012 but I assume it is the same as the one listed based on the description. Draft pours black with thick brown head. Aroma of roasted malts. Flavors of smoke, burnt wood, and light pine. Very smooth on the palate with a nice hop finish.

Pours a deep black/brown with a thick foam head. Strong hop aroma of citrus, pine, and spice. Thin body throws this black ale of balance. Very bitter hops have little malt body and lingers well in to the finish. I must admit I’m not an IPA fan and this didn’t help change my mind. Hop heads would not share my point of view and I’m ok with that.
