A bit past best by date and got this at a very handsome price with little to no wear that I can tell.
Consume. Recycle. Repeat.
Maybe the aroma has faded a bit. There is as much malt as hops with some spiciness in there too. More of a herbal and earthy hop aroma - probably mixes better with the rye, I'd assume. Does well by me.
Nice darker and dense head with ample lacing. Somewhat cloudy with classic amber color.
Really a well balanced rye flavor. Nice shots of sweetness in the grain and really fine bittering mixed with hop flavors. Takes on a tasty nutty quality as it warms. This is quite nicely done.
Enjoyable creaminess and heavy enough feel. Enough gas to add a tingle to the take.
This is a well done beer. Enjoyable through and through.

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.
