Ticket To Rye IPATicket To Rye IPA

Brewed by:
Magic Hat Brewing Company
Vermont, United States

Style: American IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 7.10%

Notes / Commercial Description:
Ticket to Rye is a Rye IPA that offers the imbiber an opening act of rye spice, nicely woven into a hearty, bitter backup from an entire band of Nugget hops. The harmony created by these ingredients is just what any epic show calls for.

poured into a clean pint glass

A: Dark golden brown, plenty of carbonation, one finger width foam.

S: Light smell of piney hops with a hint of spice

T: Again slight pine from hops but a definite spice from the rye.

M: Not thin but not heavy. Still very smooth and a crisp finish

O: I have had a couple of these rye/IPA and I got to tell you I really like them and this one is no different. Crisp enough for a hot summer day but spicy enough for a chilly fall day at a football game.

Appearance: It pours a hazy light brown color and it topped with ½” of off white colored head.
Smell: The aroma is very subtle in this beer has a little hops but not much but no malt that I can smell.
Taste: The taste of this is rather good it has a good blend of hops a rye malt that make it just what I expected probably even hoppier than I was hoping.
Mouthfeel: This is a medium bodied beer that goes down easy and yet still allows the flavor free range.

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.
