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.

bhensonb (10902) - Woodland, California, USA - MAR 27, 2014
Bottle from Total Wine in Sacramento, CA. Pours clear light copper with a slight beige head. Aroma is sort of spicy/herby. Med body or so. The rye is clearly present with spice, and thereís a sort of veg/herb along with it. Itís bitter in the finish, but Iím not getting much of the usual hop suspects. Herbal I guess.

DrSilverworm (6274) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 3, 2013
12oz bottle, shared by robotopera. Clear red / orange color. Thin white head. Little lace. Barely anything interesting in the nose, especially side by side with a West Sixth IPA. Just some malty old hop aroma. Light rye spice, toasty malt, citrusy hop flavor. Some grapefruit. Zesty sweet taste. Light bitter. Medium - plus body. Lighter carbonation. OK rye IPA.
