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 (4602) - 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.

unclemattie (4263) - 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 (4095) - 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.

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