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 very agreeable slamming beer. There is just enough spice and hops to qualify as an IPA, but with no overwhelming flavor added (like pine) to try to make it more than it is. Sometimes you just want to drink beer, have a good time, and not analyze the process, nor micro manage the experience. When that day comes, buy a bunch of this and tear it up.

I light this out of the tap and in a plastic cup, mostly while standing on the deck of the Natchez while steaming down (or maybe it's up?) the Mississippi. Sometimes, I drink things just for the memories. It tastes pretty good, too: a little caramel, a little earth, a little (too) thin. Not bad at all. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pretty decent cask at iron horse. Nice citra aroma but a bit too earthy for my tastes. I give this beer 1.2 thumbs up.

HIGHB4LL (837) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - NOV 1, 2014
12 oz. bottle from Cash Wise in Watford City. Appearance: finger copper head, copper color, clear, ok lacing. Aroma: heavy caramel, grass hops. Palate: medium-light body, average carbonation, bitter finish, sticky and also slightly thin texture. Taste: heavy caramel sweetness, into light grassy hops that grows and becomes more bitter. Overall, nothing special, thinness is off, and transition form sweet to bitter is not smooth.

Bottle; I guess Abita and I agree that all beer should have some malt flavor. I like this IPA probably because it’s maltier than most IPAs. Unlike the amber though, I tire of this flavor more quickly.

Bella scoperta questa IPA della abita. Arancio ambrato, splendida schiuma beige lunga e duratura. Adoro le IPA, americane in Italia non sono mai fresche ma questa č decente. La carbonatazione ha perso un po di spinta ma al naso sento gli agrumi, tanto malto e note citriche. In Bocca invece caramello e toffee, un po di erba e sentori quasi terrosi. Finale amaro al luppolo. Buona bevuta.
