look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 4

Appearance: pours a 1” cream colored fluffy head that recedes slowly. Color is a lovely hazy amber/copper. Moderate lacing and carbonation bubbles.
Aroma: aroma is very pleasant combination of bready malts, citrus rind, and piney hops. Mouthfeel: fairly light and a little bit sticky with a very dry finish.
Flavor: Very tasty brew. The same flavors as the aroma, sweet bread dough malts, and tangy citrus and pine hops. However, there is an additional peppery flavor that hits the middle of the sip and roof of my mouth (I assume this is from the Rye). And there is a lingering alcohol warming in the throat.
Overall: This is a most excellent offering from Magic Hat.

A: Foamy one inch tan head sits atop a dark orangish-burgundy colored body. Thick foamy, lace band with a slow rise of effervesce. Head longtivity is very good.

S: Aroma is dry orange grind, dry rye bread with some peppery-cola.

T: Peppery flavor, dry lemon grind, rye bread that was spicy with some peppercorns. Bitter, flowery hops with some dry burbon, toasted grain. The rye flavoring seems very prominent here, with some dry citrus, anise and a lingering peppery fade.

M: Spicy dry burbon mouthful on the hold, medium body.

O: Overall decent, the rye aspect seems very strong and prominent here, much more so then your typical offering. Lots of dry burbon citrus. A big bold rye beer that doesnt hold back. Not a big fan of magic hat, but this is definitly one of thier better beers and the rye is definitly huge and stands out. More rye then ipa, if you go in for the rye experience you wont be disappointed. The ipa is very secondary in nature. Still a good beer.

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

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a US tumbler pint glass.

A: The beer is a deep golden brown color, with a thin off-white head that fades quickly and leaves a thin lace on the glass.

S: The aroma is faint but contains caramelized rye malts, some spice, some hops and some citrus.

T: The taste starts out sweet with a decent hops bitterness that is quickly followed by mildly sweet flavors of caramel and citrus. Then some spice comes in along with a hearty but not too heavy rye malt character. The hops presence is on the weak side for the style but brings some balance. The after-taste is slightly bready and slightly sweet.

M: Crisp and a little smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is dry and slightly sticky.

O: A little tasty, goes down ok, not too filling, good kick, decent representation of style, it’s a solid beer but there are several other Rye IPA’s that I would choose first.
