3.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a slightly hazy amber from a bottle. Minimal thin off white head. Intense floral aroma that carries over to the flavor. Roses? Slightly malty amd fairly bitter. This is a nice beer but definitely not a west coast ipa. Overall a nice beer.

Haven’t tried anything from Abita in longtime--because they aren’t great--but wanted to try something new this evening. Not bad: little thin, crisp, faint spiciness, and dangerously drinkable at 6.5. It’s easy drinking, but I can’t justify a high rating at this time.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
The beer has a decent amber color to it with a mild haziness. The head is decent and a has a nice reddish hue to it. The beer is well carbonated and some lacing on the glass. The smell is decent as you get the hops immediately but then it quickly fades to some maltiness and a caramel scent. The taste is average as you instantly get the hoppy flavor but it quickly fades and leaves you a mild malty taste. I would have expected more hops for an IPA and maybe a better malt flavor and caramel taste in the back end. The mouthfeel is okay with a mild hoppy finish lingering around and some bitterness. Overall, this beer is okay but is better suited to a Pale Ale than an IPA and lacks the flavors that it promises in the smell and description.

Bottle. Pours a clear amber orange with a white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has sweet earthy grains, light musty pine and a bit of grass. Flavor has a lot of earthy sweet grains with underlying grass and hay.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dark copper colored beer with a medium foamy white head. Subtle nose of pink grapefruit and peach, but somewhat underwhelming overall. Flavor has a slight hop bite initially with some citrus and piney notes, but the hops are understated and not particularly complex. This is an IPA for people who are definitely not hardcore. Pleasant enough, but so many IPAs out there with much more pronounced flavor profiles.

Clear copper, on tap, very light biscuit. Typical grassy hops. Fair IPA. I would drink again on tap. Need to try bottle.
