COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Magic Hat is presenting our year long "Tour of IPAs!" Please join us in welcoming to the stage our revolving roster of FOUR features, specially formulated to entertain the palates of hop lovers worldwide. Smell the hops, taste the hops, love the hops... and stay "On Tour" with our quarterly cabaret of IPAs.

Ticket to Rye is a Rye IPA that offers the imbiber an opening act of rye spice, nicely woven into a hearty, bitter backup from an entire band of Nugget hops. The harmony created by these ingredients is just what any epic show calls for.

hotstuff (4058) - Indiana, USA - APR 2, 2014
Rated on 3-20-2014 (Bottle from Krogerís in Fort Wayne, IN) This beer pours a small off-white head with a lengthy retention, amber body, extremely fizzy carbonation, fast rising carbonation, and a fair amount of lacing. The aroma is malt, rye, citrus hops, spicy, and peppery. The taste is bitter, light citrus hops, malty, rye, spicy, and peppery. The mouthfeel is soft lively and this beer is medium bodied. This beer is just okay tasting for me. The different flavors just did not come together all that well.

jflopsu (492) - New Jersey, USA - MAR 31, 2014
Pours a a murky redish-orange. Has a strong malty aroma. Taste is very grainy with heavy malt, wheat, and some hops. A very earthy beer.

rlpeeler (82) - Bowling Green, Kentucky, USA - MAR 29, 2014
Bottle from a variety pack poured into a pint glass. Dark amber to cooper with small white head. Taste is rye/wheat and malt with very light hops. It is smooth with good mouthfeel. A bit out of the ordinary for an IPA but not bad.

mansquito (3255) - Nueva York, New York, USA - MAR 29, 2014
At work: Pours copper with off-white head. Aroma is rye malts, mellow hoppy mixture, butterscotch, and fruitiness. Taste is pretty light. A tad bit spicy. Not too much bitterness. Really, it is not bad, but not particularly exceptional. It is a little different from other beers, which is nice.

wisdomsolo (388) - St Petersburg, Florida, USA - MAR 28, 2014
It's not horrible but it's not great either. Sweetish flavor with little to no aroma. For an IPA the hops are nonexistent

bhensonb (10691) - Woodland, California, USA - MAR 27, 2014
Bottle from Total Wine in Sacramento, CA. Pours clear light copper with a slight beige head. Aroma is sort of spicy/herby. Med body or so. The rye is clearly present with spice, and thereís a sort of veg/herb along with it. Itís bitter in the finish, but Iím not getting much of the usual hop suspects. Herbal I guess.

Cybercat (3195) - Georgia, USA - MAR 26, 2014
Pours a clear dark amber, almost chestnut, with a thick, fluffy and fine-bubbled pale buff head. Aroma is wimpy but has tempting notes of rye and woody hops. Flavor, fortunately, is stronger than the aromaís promise, rye and bitter hops plus a hint of citrus. Texture is firm if only somewhat fizzy. Not Magic Hatís best, but rye-ght on! Go ahead and get this ticket.

From a bottle.The pour is a dark orange almost red in color with a heavy spice note with a sweet aftertaste.

grundsow (61) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 20, 2014
Weak, thatís what comes to mind. For an IPA, where is the flavor? Slightly high amount of alcohol, love the bitter rye, hops are mild though. Flavor is right, but weak and just an average beer. Maybe Iím spoiled, I dunno.

thedm (4920) - Fort Wayne, USA - MAR 20, 2014
This bottled brew from a grocery store poured a medium sized head of foamy finely sized light tan colored bubbles that were very long lasting and left behind a very softly carbonated slightly hazy light brown orange colored body and a good lacing. The mild aroma was bready and mild hop. The sharp vinous crisp mouth feel was very tingly at the start and at the finish with a biting hoppy aftertaste. The sharp flavor contained notes of rye hops and malt. A wonderful best in class brew.
