3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a clear dark amber, almost chestnut, with a thick, fluffy and fine-bubbled pale buff head. Aroma is wimpy but has tempting notes of rye and woody hops. Flavor, fortunately, is stronger than the aroma’s promise, rye and bitter hops plus a hint of citrus. Texture is firm if only somewhat fizzy. Not Magic Hat’s best, but rye-ght on! Go ahead and get this ticket.

Weak, that’s 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 I’m spoiled, I dunno.

4.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
This bottled brew from a grocery store poured a medium sized head of foamy finely sized light tan colored bubbles that were very long lasting and left behind a very softly carbonated slightly hazy light brown orange colored body and a good lacing. The mild aroma was bready and mild hop. The sharp vinous crisp mouth feel was very tingly at the start and at the finish with a biting hoppy aftertaste. The sharp flavor contained notes of rye hops and malt. A wonderful best in class brew.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
The name is the best thing about this beer. It is way to light to be a good rye IPA.

12oz bottle. I like it ok. It’s not great but it’s not terrible. I probably wouldn’t but it again.
