look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Poured from a 12oz. bottle into a standard pint glass.
Dirty penny copper in color, with a big head of bone-white foam.
Aroma-Faint herbal hop note
Taste-Spicy rye,toasted malt, foloral/herbal hops. Nicely balanced with a drying finish. A nice match for spicy fare or a pastrami sandwich.

A-Pours a dark copper color. Body is mostly clear. Head is thick and full. Head leaves rings like the innards of a tree.

S-Buttery rye bread combined with some earthy and piney hoppiness. Caramel and hints of chocolate. Rye is spicy and zesty.

T-The rye really jumps here. Good doses of pine and earthen hops. There is some metal. Battery rye bread and some citrus (bright candied orange) with molasses and caramel. Boasts great balance.

M-Creamy and semi-full. Solid, lingering bitterness.

O/D-Pretty nice RIPA. Definitely one of the better rotating Magic Hat IPAs.

Bottle > Regular pint
A - Pours a nice light brown/amber color, less than head that goes away instantly, thin lacing.
S - Bitter and dark malts, decent rye aroma here, pine hops.
T - This is actually pretty darn good, bitter flavor, you really get the rye in this, dank biterness and the hops pack a good bite to them, earthy quality to it as well.
M - Good carbonization, well bodied, crisp
O - I'm actually really surprised by how good this is. Not the best Rye-flavored IPA, but definitely a good go to if this is a flavor you're searching for.

Very dark amber colored beer, it could be called red or light brown. Small off-white colored head. Clear with no haze present.

Smells hoppy with a clear scent of pine. Spicy and slightly sour rye malt. Toasted grain and caramel. Smells a little woody but it isn't super aromatic.

Starts out malty with a sharp hit bite in the after taste. Tastes a bit spicy and the rye certainly isn't hidden. Little bit sweet caramel flavor is bold. Tasty rye beer.

Mouthfeel is good.

Overall a good rye beer. Better than I expected from this brewery.

3.94/5  rDev +10.1%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

A: Pours an amber/copper color with 2 fingers worth of fluffy head that leaves some nice lacing and retains for quite a while

S: Get a bit of spicy rye that gets swallowed up by the citrusy and piney hops. Also get some fruity and buttery yeast notes

T: Follows the nose. Starts out with a little spiciness from the rye with a nice hop presence that lends citrus and pine notes. Balanced nicely by the malts. Finishes bitter and slightly spicy

M: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation

O: A nice new addition to the IPA on Tour series. Not sure if I like this or the newly retired Demo (their black IPA) more. Regardless, a solid brew that's worthy of a purchase

A - A touch hazy for an IPA. Seems like a chestnut brown with a full inch of sticky roamy head.
S - I get some mild pine, maybe citrus, and spicy rye notes. Smell is good.
T - Not too much rye which is appreciated but I am not getting much bittering hops. Some sweeter malts and maybe citrus hops it seems adverage.
M - Mildly dry and light to medium body.
Overall it's a pretty good IPA, very dry with the rye and semi bitter. Easy drinking IPA but far from great.

Poured this American style IPA from a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass. Poured a hazy amber color, produced an average white head, average retention and left a nice amount of lacing on the glass. The aroma of this IPA consisted of malted grain, spicy rye, caramel and piney hops. Moderate body, a foundation of rye malt, caramel and piney hops. Overall, very nice example of a craft brewed American IPA- The use of rye in this brew was especially enjoyable. Great session beer- Worthy! Prost!

Served in a Lagunitas mason jar.

It's as though Paul McCartney bit his tongue during a Beatles set back in the day. This stuff pours a clear sunrise amber topped by a finger of off-cream foam. The nose comprises lightly-toasted rye bread, caramel, mild greens, and a bit of sweet flowers. The taste brings in more of the same, though the grass is now stronger and there's a touch of light butter in there for the sake of it. The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a drying finish. Overall, a weak little RIPA, one that's too mossy and too muddled for its own good.
