look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

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.

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.

Poured a hazy dark amber hue with a one finger frothy white head. There was very good retention and excellent sticky lacing.

The smell featured a moderate caramel, spicy rye and light piney hop.

The taste consisted of a chewy earthy caramel malt, spirited rye malt with a lingering piney hop spice.

The mouthfeel was toward the fuller side of the style.

Overall a tasty full bodied IPA.

This beer reminds me a lot of Harpoon's Rich and Dan's Rye IPA. They each have a banana taste to me that must come from something they're doing with the rye. The hops are a little more forward in this one, along with a lot of rye spiciness in the nose. The taste has a decent amount of hops, but they're quickly washed away by a huge wave of rye that has a bit of that banana character I mentioned earlier. The mouthfeel is on the full side for an IPA and satisfying, and the drinkability is solid. Overall, a good rye IPA. Not the best in the world, and I'm not sure I see any reason to go out of your way to get a sixer of this when Ruthless Rye is out, but it's a solid add-in to the mix pack.

Poured from a 12oz. bottle into my Deschutes tulip...

A - Pours a clear copper color with 1 finger of tan head. Spotty lacing as I sip.

S - Big rye aroma. Kind of over powers everything else.

T/M - The flavor is a combination of rye, which has a rubber like flavor quality, and alcohol. I don't get the hops in this one, as the rye is over powers it IMO. Medium mouthfeel.

O - As I continue sipping, I find my self searching for the hops in this one. Not good, but not bad. It's meh...

Hazy rusty red color and a nice collar of fluffy bone head. Retention on this sucker is everlasting. Sick lacing. Hell of a look.

Ripe aroma! Herbal and floral sweetness, lilac, orange citrus hops, Irish Spring, light pine, and some toasty rye grain. Excellent nose for a Rye IPA.

A show of floral hops without the bitterness. Attached is an herbal sweetness that pairs marvelously with the lightly spicy rye malts. Notes of toffee and citrus also very much present. It's easy, sure, but it is damn tasty.

Drinks smooth, but ruffled from the carbonation. Insanely sluggable.

My favorite Magic Hat IPA to-date. What a pleasant surprise!

Weathered copper orange in color with a deep haze. Poured with respectable white foam that quickly reduced to a wispy, soapy cap that left light sticky lacing on the glass. Dark bread and rye aromas up front with a strong caramel malt sweetness beneath along with an herbal hoppiness. Medium bodied with rich, assertive carbonation. Herbal and pine hop flavors smother the bready and rye malt flavors up front. A bit of spicy rye through the middle. Finishes with a slightly herbal, mostly pine hop bitterness.

Poured from a brown 12oz. bottle. Has a dark bronze color with a 1 inch head. Smell is very hoppy, some citrus and rye notes. Taste is bitter, lots of hops, a bit of rye, just a hint of citrus, no malts to speak of. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a decent beer.
