3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Spicy sweet malt aroma as one expects from rye ale. Dark orange, near brown color. Very sweet, bitter lemon grass flavor. Easily identifiable as rye, more like an IPA than anything else I suppose. Very crisp, cutting, and dry.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Appearance: pours a 1” cream colored fluffy head that recedes slowly. Color is a lovely hazy amber/copper. Moderate lacing and carbonation bubbles.
Aroma: aroma is very pleasant combination of bready malts, citrus rind, and piney hops.
Mouthfeel: fairly light and a little bit sticky with a very dry finish.
Flavor: Very tasty brew. The same flavors as the aroma, sweet bread dough malts, and tangy citrus and pine hops. However, there is an additional peppery flavor that hits the middle of the sip and roof of my mouth (I assume this is from the Rye). And there is a lingering alcohol warming in the throat.
Overall: This is a most excellent offering from Magic Hat.

Pours an almost cleat copper with a long lasting head. Great caramel and citrus aroma. Well balanced, very nice on the palate with a good east coast IPA bitterness. Excellent IPA.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle-purchased at Walgreens in Las Cruces, NM-pours deep murky hazy amber hue with a nice soapy eggshel white head. no lacing. nose is herbal tea, lite musty notes, woody hops, lite wet carboard, lite rye spice notes. flavors exhibit the rye bigtime-big woody, spicy malt profile with some minerals, lite herbal tea like hop qualities. I think this beer has a bit of age on it. However, its a clean beer, which is good for this brewery. I would imagine that fresh sample of this beer would be decent. finish is not very bitter at all, some woody notes, herbal tea like traits and a splash of rye that goes long after the sip. fairly dry as well.

3.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Aroma- sweet rye. Overly sweet. End- rye and banana, a bit tang. Start- sweetish laid back lager-like start. Middle- gentle dry grass hops. Finish hints of dry grass. Complex, drinkable, yummy. I like the wheatish touches. Not overly bitter.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Orange, orange peel and rye malt aroma. Amber with moderate head. Mildly sweet orange, very light rye malt, and mildly bitter orange peel flavor. Smells great but flavor a let-down.

ya know, with lots of these magic hats you can’t tell if you’ve tased them or not. from a bot. brownish yellow. friendly mild hop perfume olfactory. nice thin creamy head. does have some mild sizzle, just barely. but the overriding factor in this brew is its nasty rude on ipa style with a rye kik ass finish. not impressed.
