EtTuCthulhu (1391) - Columbia, Missouri, USA - MAY 30, 2014
The appearance has a cloudy copper color with a large light tan head, and the aroma blends rye, diacetyl, caramel malts and resin, pine and floral hops. The taste is mildly bitter, slightly sour, and a touch sweet; the palate fuses a medium-full body, slick texture, average carbonation, and a long bitter finish.

Bottle to shaker glass. Pours deep hazy amber/red, two finger off white head, moderate lacing. Aroma of dark fruits, pepper and caramel. Taste is snappy from the rye, nice resin bitterness, balanced sweetness from the grain bill. Medium body, slightly creamy, lightly carbonated. Finishes sweet up front then a long chewy bitterness. I like this one!

Jay_Dubbz (103) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 27, 2014
Poured from 12oz bottle. Opening was tasty with a kick from the rye malts. Led to a beautiful marriage of hop bite. Ver nice take on the style. --you've been Dubbed.

SDalkoholic (2375) - Linda Vista, California, USA - MAY 23, 2014
Bottle from Fresh and Easy: Poured a medium tea colored brown with tons of sediment floating as a thin layer of foam develops on top and will break down rather quickly. Aroma is subtle with minor scents of caramelized malts as well as bready rye malt with minimal hops detected under an IPA type of night. The taste is identical to the same type of characteristics that my nose detected but becomes more vibrant with the my tongue finding the very same flavors. This is quite possible the best Magic Hat beer I have tasted in the past 10 years and that is rather sad when considering the decisions they have made available in California. =/

mrsp1107 (6) - Clinton, Illinois, USA - MAY 22, 2014 does not count
Not too hop-forward for an IPA, but rye doesn’t come through as much as I would like.

NeoHippie2 (1074) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - MAY 12, 2014
Slightly hazy copper pour with an off-white head. Aromas of subtle citrus hops and earthy rye malt. Flavor is rye malts predominantly with light hop character. Decent but nothing special.

Frank (4171) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 8, 2014
This bills itself as a rye IPA but is really too dark and sweet to be an IPA. It is a brownish orange color, rather clear w/ a rather long lasting head of large to medium bubbles. The nose is of pine and earth w/ a bit of an herbal tinge. Flavor is yet more earthy but in a nice way that sort of reminds me of an exaggerated version of the hop character in a nice bitter. This is a bit on the sweet side which is generally not my thing but it works here due to the creamy texture, which I will presume is the result of the inclusion of rye in the grist. It finishes very mildly w/ a lingering sweetness and just a touch of bitterness. This isn’t a world beater but it’s a pretty tasty beer.
