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.

TEJA (1821) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUL 30, 2008
Nice red/amber colour with a firm foam. For an american IPa not so much hop aroma. Aroma of bensaldehyde / amaretto. This is also present in the taste. Rather sweet and lacks a bitt of bitterness. Much caramell malts.

phishpond417 (2088) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 28, 2008
This beer pours a very bright coloured, clear copper colour with no head but decent spotted lacing. Aroma is slightly hopped, fruity and a little bit of grapefruit on the nose. a little biscuity as well. mouthfeel is light, but bubbly and hoppy. semi sweet at first but finishes pretty dry. nice beer!

KieferUGA (461) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JUL 26, 2008
12 oz. bottle. Clear, amber pour with a thin, off white head. Heavy lacing. Aroma of caramel malts with a touch of honey. Flavor is a mixed bag. The piney hops were nice, but the malt backbone was lacking. Weird biscuity finish. Ok beer.

ross (2128) - weddington, North Carolina, USA - JUL 22, 2008
Another beer from Sean. Even though I can buy these locally, I chose to have Sean send me one because I felt sorry for him since he lives in Nashville. Maybe he will waste his money on a new Paul Gay Smith guitar. This one pours out a brown color, without much of a head. Sweet and fruity smelling with some hops infused. Taste is decent, smooth and refreshing. Kind of hoppy, but not a lot. Interesting enough, but not something I would want to drink a lot of.

BelgianBeerGal (3500) - Panama City, Florida, USA - JUL 22, 2008
Bottled. Better than average beer but not really a great IPA. The bitterness was a little harsh and flat. No real characteristic to the bitterness, just seemed like bitterness for bitterness sake. Better than a regular beer though.

Juancho (239) - Georgia, USA - JUL 21, 2008
Bottle from Whole foods. Pours nice copper color, very thin head. Aroma of yeast and hop, flavor is much better, decently hopped and well carbonated. A refreshing brew that was surprisingly better than I expected.

PorterPounder (6535) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUL 19, 2008
Tallahassee, Fl. - Leon Pub - 12 oz bottle. Bright orange pour with a thin, but sticky white head. Odd aroma - some toe jam , a bit of peach marmalade. Flavor is a bit muddled with some sticky apricot notes, some cake mix sweetness and maple syrup. Missing that citrusy bite usually associated with IPAs. Mouthfeel is thick enough. Misses the mark just slightly.

ElGaucho56 (394) - USA - JUL 16, 2008
Pours a lighter amber with mildly frothy head, some lacing. Nose of sticky caramel malts, some piney residue. More pine on the palate, orange juice citrus character, ends somewhat wooden with a very mild bitterness. A decent IPA.

EithCubes (5306) - New Jersey, USA - JUL 15, 2008
Bottle. Big, sweet, rich caramel malt nose, loads and loads of PNW hops, grapefruit and orange and lychee and sticky pine. Superb hop bouquet! Clear copper body with a soapy beige head. Light body, strongly but not off-puttingly bitter with flashes of sweetness, big sticky caramel with outside pine needles and a touch of resin. Not as good in the end as was expected from the first cap pop, but still a solid, serviceable IPA.
