COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The newest Abita brew takes its name and inspiration from the Mardi Gras Indians of New Orleans. Looking for Indians on Mardi Gras Day is a tradition for many New Orleans families. A cultural phenomenon familiar to residents of the Crescent City, the Mardi Gras Indians are not well known to outsiders and Abita is proud to help share their story with the world.

This is a great IPA! I loved it’s aroma and light caramel appearance. Is a very good hoppy IPA.

Nero55 (492) - Leeds, Alabama, USA - APR 17, 2014
Draft. Copper with medium off white head. Aroma of resinous hops, caramel, and some malt sweetness. Light body, with a thin malt body, strong caramel, and a dry finish.

ABS (387) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - APR 13, 2014
Dark amber. Light tan to orange head. Hop nose. Mostly malt and caramel aroma. Some hop, grapefruit. Bitter. Sweet. Too malty for an IPA.

DrunkSanta410 (193) - Georgia, USA - APR 8, 2014
Bottle to glass. Pours a dark amber. Good amount of off white head that lasts. Aroma is caramel malts, honey and grass. Not much hop aroma. Taste is caramel malts, some grass and pine. Mild bitterness. Palate is medium body, medium carbonation. Not a bad beer, just not very hoppy for an IPA.

onceblind (3675) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 2, 2014
Clear brilliant amber with a foamy pillowy off-ivory head. The aroma is sweet and hoppy candy like, with some grapefruity zest and orange pulp, a touch of slightly vegetal pine, leads of caramel, and a earthy floral resin. Lovely smelling IPA. Unfortunately the taste falls a bit short. Nothing bad, just kinda ’meh’ with an odd creaminess at the start. Has some pine and floral resin with a bit of malty caramel and grapefruity undertones, but it’s just got this weird lightness about it I can’t explain. Pity.

Not a normal IPA. From the first taste it just tasted different, I had no idea what it was but it was really good would buy again.

Erzengel (1939) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - MAR 15, 2014
nice malty and floral in the nose. The beer starts sharp and flowery. The mainpart in a bit malty. But too undefined. Refreshing, not really sweet, great hoppy bitter in the end but has a lack of flowery aroma. Easy to drink but not very deep in aroma. --> 10/12/10/10

ajnepple (1689) - Clear Creek, Colorado, USA - MAR 14, 2014
12 oz bottle from Tipsy’s. Light amber, clear appearance with a sticky, off-white head. Aroma of stale hops, floral notes, butterscotch, earth, light citrus and sweet malts. Similar flavor, bittersweet and buttery with a slick, creamy feel. Average body with light carbonation. This is flawed and possibly past it’s prime, although, the ’best by’ date is illegible.

Aroma of citrus, moderate malt, citrus notes on the palate, quick finish. decent IPA from Abita.
