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.

Pailhead (5567) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - JUN 4, 2013
Bottle: The aroma consists of moderate caramel, toffee, rye, and aged citrus hops. It pours a transparent copper with a one off-white head that fades to a thin film outlined by a soapy ring. There is some thin webbing left on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with moderate caramel, toffee, and citrus. The finish has light aged citurs hops and spicy rye notes. Itís medium bodied with mild carbonation and a somewhat soft mouthfeel. Overall, Iím generally not a big rye IPA fan and this one is too malt heavy (caramel and toffee) for my personal preferences.

crazyvin (2026) - New York, USA - JUN 3, 2013
Poured a deep amber color, almost brown. An off white head that had decent retention and nice lace. Some carbonation present. Aroma was a mix of sweet caramel malts. A nice peppery rye note and a dose of hops mostly pine. Flavor was initially sweet from the malts but gave way to the pepper of the rye. Hops were good, assertive but not over powering. Finish was dry. Alcohol was certainly present.

DYCSoccer17 (3481) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 30, 2013
12 ounce bottle purchased at The Rouses Point Beer Emporium. The aroma has a fair amount of spicy rye character with a little earthiness. Light ethanol is also present retronasally. Transparent light amber body with a medium off-white head. Starts a little herbal and becomes quite a bit spicy with rye character. Pretty chewy later on, and a little nutty, actually. Some ethanol comes through late. Light caramel flavor, too. A bit of a sloppy ale.

Pours a cloudy deep golden color with a thick cream colored head. Aroma is of hops, rye, bread, grapefruit, some grain, and barley. Medium bodied. Flavors are of malt, rye, bark, slight citrus, grain, and earthiness. Leaves a dry dirty rye finish. Not too bad. Itís nice to see Magic Hat getting back on track.

onceblind (5312) - 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.

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 (4356) - 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)
