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.

12 oz bottle pours hazy amber with a tan head. Aroma of caramel malt, floral and spice. Taste is spicy, sweet malts and pine resin. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

coolpop (1395) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - APR 27, 2013
Pours a very orangey, slightly hazy medium amber with a medium-sized off-white head that leaves a lot of scuzzy lacing. Aroma is berry-sweet, caramel, some citrus, not terribly hoppy. Flavor is rather sweet, lots of caramel, touch of spice. Something’s slightly off. Muddy, sweet flavor. Slightly thick, sticky mouthfeel. Meh.

NikkTwist (1589) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 26, 2013
UPDATED: MAY 3, 2013 Draft at Sugars. Hazy medium amber with a small off-white head. Strong hoppy rye. Bitter earthy grassy notes, though still a bit sweet. Very rye forward. Stronger than most Magic Hat brews but still feels like a better IPA watered down.

blipp (6033) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - APR 25, 2013
Bottle. Pours amber orange with an off white head. Some flowery hops, malty sweetness and hints of rye, with lighter notes of pine, and light lingering bitterness. Decent.

jbruner (2296) - Athens, Georgia, USA - APR 24, 2013
Pours a clear copper brown on tap with thin lacy off-white film and slight webby lacing. Aroma of rye spice and slight floral hops, almost a lager malt back. Taste is heavy on the rye with an earthy floral bitter hop finish. For magic hat, this is pretty solid.

Beerman6686 (4302) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 22, 2013
This one poured a light orange color with an off white head. Aroma was of light rye, light bittering hops and not much else. Flavor was of weeds, grass, and light spices. Not much of an IPA.

TURDFERGUSON (3948) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - APR 17, 2013
Bottle, from broken up mix pack at Trader Joe’s. Pours a dark, murky, plum color, quite eerie looking actually. Thick, steady white, light meringue-like head. Nose is sweet cream, fruity, blueberry, bran, cereal malt. Flavor is icky-sweet and sweaty, fruity, bitterness. A complete mess, and exactly what I expect from this brewery which has obviously has been left in the dust after the new wave of the craft beer revolution.

nuplastikk (4334) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - APR 16, 2013
12oz bottle. Unfiltered murky orange-brown body. Fluffy, steady off-white head. A pretty well balanced Rye IPA. Respectable enough hopping, a little one dimensional maybe. Either way, this beer is malt centered, big rich caramel and rye tones...though still finishes a touch hollow. The house yeast really dominates.

ryanscourt (740) - Latrobe, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 13, 2013
Not bad Rye hoppiness. Fairly short and simple. What’s there is pretty good, but not too impressive. Definitly would order this at a bar and enjoy it, just not over similar rye offerings that I have had.

Drake (8339) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - APR 9, 2013
12 ounce bottle from the spring sampler. Pours a clear copper color with a medium sized frothy tan head. Decent head retention. Aroma of caramel malts with earth and rye notes. The taste is spicy rye, herbal and pine notes, caramel malts and some toast. Well balanced. One of the better Magic Hat beers I’ve had in some time.
