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.

onceblind (4014) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAY 21, 2013
Hazy dark amber with a generous and persistent off-cream foamy head. Aroma is toasty, nutty, full of toffee with a strong backing of pine resin and some earthy lemon rind. Flavor starts kinda bitter with some earthy and leafy hoppy resins, but then quickly turns to this rye bread and toast note, followed with a lot of toffee and gentle earthiness. In fact, there is so much nutty toasty toffee that the entire finish of the flavor strikes me as a brown ale.

phaleslu (6343) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 18, 2013
UPDATED: MAY 21, 2013 12 oz. bottle at the in-laws. Pours a cloudy orange-amber with a small off-white head. Aroma of caramel malts, rye, sweat, brown sugar, and orange peel. Flavor of caramel malts, rye, tangerine, and tropical fruits. Light-medium bodied, with moderate carbonation and a malty mouthfeel. Rye on the finish. Not bad.

unclemattie (4157) - Georgia, USA - MAY 17, 2013
12oz bottle. Cap read, "Liquor before beer... are you kidding." Well, actually, tonight, I did think about it. Pour red/amber color, white foam, nice lacing. Mild grain nose, nice wooded hop character. Tastes of earthy, bitter hops. Velvety sweet caramel malts. Smooth, creamy texture. Very well balanced. Spicy tingle in the finish. Medium bodied. A very nice, very well hopped, RYE IPA. (3703)

ben4321 (3849) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - MAY 16, 2013
Location: 12 oz bottle from Giannone, 5/16/13, Drinking this one virtually with jcos!

Aroma: The nose of this one is sweet malts, rye bread, and some light earth/pine hops
Appearance: Pours a dark reddish color with a a beige head that leaves heavy lace on the glass
Flavor: The taste is lightly sweet, rye malts, some caramel, mild butter, and fairly light hops
Palate: The body is medium (leaning light), a little sticky, with an okay, but slightly off mouthfeel
Overall Impression: I wasnít too impressed by this one. Itís pretty run of the mill. The rye actually shines decently enough, but the IPA flavors do not.

Location/Date:Bottle on May 16th, 2013 with Ben(virtually) while listening to The Beatles play "Ticket To Ride".

Appearance: Pours a cloudy orange brown.
Aroma: Aroma of rye, some caramel.
Taste: Rye, faint, bitterness, sweet caramel,
Palate:Light medium body, somewhat thin body, lingering aftertaste.

Summary: This beer hit the right notes, but there is some sweetness to it that Iím getting that is a bit too strong.

MUbArAKKArAbUM (25) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 10, 2013
12 Oz bottle poured into a pint glass, orange brown color and decent lasting head, caramel, citrus, vanilla, nicely hopped. Not as good as Sierra Nevada ruthless rye but pretty darn good

Hopswagger (197) - South Carolina, USA - MAY 9, 2013
P: Hazed brown orange tinted body with micro bubble tan head. S: Spicy rye, bready malt, dark fruits and toffee. T/M: Roasted caramel, heavy rye, spiced rum, toffee candy, caramel apples, dark fruit and pine resin. Medium full spices body that Coates the palate with pine and fruit. Leaves of film on the top if the throat like sharp cheddar does. O: By far the best Magic Hat beer I have had. This has great robust flavors and a dialed in spice profile to please.
