Active, lush, off white head of foam. Copper brown in color with active carbonation bubbles. Well balanced aroma of rye and hops on the nose. The interplay of rye and hops continue in the taste. I think the rye wins out a bit. Very light, smooth mouthfeel. You could easily enjoy a few of these over an evening.

Interesting beer that tastes like an IPA- Porter hybrid. Also smacks a bit of an Old Ale style. Not a classic IPA by any stretch. Nor is it a classic Rye IPA. This is a problem if you lay out $12 for a six pack of Rye IPA, and get a coffee flavored fusion you really weren't in the mood for. I enjoyed the adventure of drinking it. However, I feel brewers need to label their beers responsibly. "Ticket to Rye IPA' is an awesome name. But thats not whats in the bottle. Cheers.

Light tan head that is smallish about an inch on a pint glass which settles to a nice lacing above a cloudy honey copper colored beer.
Heavy rye grain and earthy aroma with just a bit of citrus hops along for the ride.
Heavy rye taste with its drying effects in full force along with a lighter other grains and even to a lesser degree some hops tagging along.
A big drying aftertaste with a bit of the rye tastes sticking around on this medium bodied beer.
It seems rye is the new hops, what I mean by that is it seems that rye has a lot of the same characteristics as a lot of popular American hops for its big bold flavor additions and drying attributes and the way they make beers not boring like we were pretty much forced to endure with the big companies out there.

Digging in the fridge I found this bottle abandoned, forgotten, lost. Must have picked it up in a mixed sixer & it fell behind something that never moved...until now. 12 oz. bottle that I'd gather is a few months old. Luckily, all that time was spent in an icy cold fridge.
Pour is a dark, filtered amber that looks flawlessly like beer. Nose is pleasingly off-beaten-path, a blend of dark earth, slippery pepper, & a shot of grassy wheats. Interesting.
Ticket to Rye IPA satisfies the urge to rye. Rye is certainly what guides the hand. While I often find rye either earth (generally boring) or spicy (my vast preference), this one manages to land both punches with one hand. The hops are a bit faded, but there's a nice citrus note & a pop of bitterness in the middle. End with touches of caramel, creaminess, & the bitter lingers pleasantly. I could shotgun one of these.
A very drinkable rye that carries a touch of IPA in its heart; not going to break into my favorite category anytime soon, but certainly a worthy, good beer.

Bottle poured into a .5l Spaten glass.
LOOK: Fuzzy, unfiltered brown penny copper. Ivory head, good lace, not long lasting.
AROMA: Best part. Much going on! Earthy, forest floor, woodsy, hoppy, floral, citrus. Original, and close an English style (it's from new england!)
TASTE: Spicy combined with citrus hop sting. Enjoyable, chewy, graininess. Mildly sweet malty with a background bitterness. Rye and caramel balance late but strong presence of hops. Again, alot going on, want to try another evening, and original. Not a so-so rye ipa. Esters and heady nose late.
FEEL: Medium, well carbonated, drinks easily. Alcohol sting late. Asks for cheese and sausages!
OVERALL: An original, not derivative Rye IPA. Shows the rye off well. I'd drink this again here and there. Eager in fact to try it with different foods. The best from Magic Hat I have had.

12oz bottle, a tall, frothy, ivory head tops an amber colored ale with slight haze. Excellent lacing all the way down the glass. Earthy nose with wet grain, rye,spice, caramel. Kind of odd smelling. Tastes are earthy, heavy on the mashed grain, caramel, spicy rye, not much bitterness, more like a rye English Pale Ale rather than a Rye IPA. Fuller body, smooth, extra creamy. Overall, this was kind of all over the place, but aside from that it was still pretty enjoyable.
