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 smells pretty much like pine and a little floral hops, taste is way to sweet, like a bad DIPA only it's not

ABUSEDGOAT (2321) - California, USA - JAN 26, 2014
Chestnut colored on draft, some lace/retention. Aroma is floral, citrus, spicy hops but also diacetyl. Medium bodied, fairly dry with a floral diacetyl flavor. Ok.

chinchill (1602) - South Carolina, USA - JAN 24, 2014
12 oz bottle served in an very pint glass. . S - floral, grassy & citrusy hops, with hints of orange. T - sweet balance for an IPA, with easily noticeable but mild hop bitterness on finish. IBU seems lower than 52. A - nearly clear reddish amber with nice off-white head. M - medium body; good medium carbonation. Very drinkable IPA; drinks and tastes like an APA as much as an IPA.

bkurtz (726) - PERU - JAN 23, 2014
Pours a hazy amber/orange. Citrus aromas. Sweets fruit notes. Not your typical IPA, but a little thin.

agl108 (765) - Upper St. Clair, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 18, 2014
On draft at Sharp Edge Brasserie. Poured light copper with skim of head and few lace splotches. Light pine and citrus flavor. Underwhelming.

Not much on aroma, and bitterness is pretty subdued. Another solid IPA that refreshes.

SPACCHIO (7) - lissone, ITALY - JAN 13, 2014 does not count
Promette bene all aroma ma poi si perde in un vortice troppo dolce per poi cadere sul palato in un sapore amarognolo

flygrade (10) - New York, USA - JAN 1, 2014
Bottle. Pours bright orange amber color with white frothy head. Aroma is most forward with light hops. flavors include grassy notes, very light hops, lights spice, and a hint of caramel in a complex taste that seems to fluctuate between a malty backbone and medium bitter finish. Best enjoyed on Super Sunday in New Orleans watching the parades of the Mardi Gras Indians march!
