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.

Weak, thatís what comes to mind. For an IPA, where is the flavor? Slightly high amount of alcohol, love the bitter rye, hops are mild though. Flavor is right, but weak and just an average beer. Maybe Iím spoiled, I dunno.

R4N5H (59) - SINGAPORE - AUG 24, 2014
12oz bottle @ The Great Beer Experiment, Singapore. Dark amber, cloudy with a small / medium head. Light citrus and rye on the nose. Slight bitter taste, roasted malt and rye flavours dominate. Sweet in the aftertaste.

bottle - Pours hazy dark copper with a small head. It smells hoppy with some mild citrus. The flavor is moderately to strongly bitter with rye spiciness. Itís medium bodied and fairly good.

Second beer consumed in DADDYíS MYSTERY BOX - many thanks! 12 oz. bottle, "MORE DRINK MORE THINK" printed on bottom side of cap. How delightfully amusing. To oversized cognac snifter, it pours a rusty redwood with which a sudsy, ivory white head 1 and half fingers in length stood. Aromas of cedar bark, pine-scented Little Trees, spent grain, banana peppers (gosh, havenít used that in a while), denim jeans, kumatoes, agave syrup, avocados, and rolling tobacco. Tastes much the same with the addition of sesame seeds, sourdough, and DME. Medicinal hops, shallots, and American yeast experienced by swallow, alongside a very mild spice characteristic resembling cinnamon and cardamom. Medium-bodied drinking. Pleasant. Would have again, even though it did not wow me.

Magic hat has always been hit or miss for me. This one hits right in the middle. Not over the top but not a stand out. An okay beer from a good brewer

This is a great rye. It's not shitty but the exact opposite. Enjoy it on a Sunday doing that thing and grilling brats. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

eManu (448) - Kuala Lumpur & Brussels, BELGIUM - JUL 13, 2014
From a 33cl bottle, pours a hazy amber to brown color with an off-white head that disappeared fast only to leave a ring around the glass. Aroma of hops, pine, yeast and citrus. Flavors are pleasant, hops, toasted bread, herbs, malts, grains, caramel and toffee. Medium body, light sweetness and bitterness. Nice balance of many flavors making it quite interesting and enjoyable to drink.

zach8270 (3439) - Henrietta, New York, USA - JUN 27, 2014
(bottle - 12 oz) Orange pour with a white head. Slightly sour grain and dry grass aroma with maybe a hint of wheat. Flavor is bitter and sour. Very cloyingly so. A bit of sweetness but the dry sour and bitter notes kind of ruin it.

Very interesting. Piney astringent typical of ipa but more bitter nut base from the rye. Well matched to quiet spicy hops

Specialty Grain? IPA? Iíll see when I enter this rating.
Ah - Specialty Grain. Funny how many wheat ales are getting into the IPA category now while the ryes are getting the boot.
This has an amber body, lots of bubbling, and a slender, creamy ecru head. It has an aroma of caramel and citrus fruit with quiet floral scents. The flavor is mainly about the caramelly malt. Thereís also a light peppery sensation that lingers on the tongue. Midway through some citrus and zest flavors kick in along with a moderate bitterness. It finishes on a dry, softly bitter note. Not bad, but when I see "IPA" on a bottle, Iím always expecting more.
