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.

Pours a amber color with off white head. Aroma is caramel malt, earth, and a weak amount of citrus hops. I donít quite get these weak-arse IPAs. Give me some pine or citrus, but these are nothing more then a APA or a strong amber ale IMHO. Taste is the same as aroma, earthy with caramel malt and bits of citrus hops. Not horrible, but not an IPA in my book.

Pours a nice amber color with a nice creamy head. Aromas of citrus hops and sweet caramel malt. Flavor is of hops, grapefruit and citrus blended with caramel malts. Nice hop bitter finish. Not too overpowering but very refreshing!

Bottle.
Smells like blood and hops. Looks like a mediocre amber thing. Taste is a berry-like hops with a tinge of grapefruit/banana. Average mouthfeel. Not bad, overall.

The hops flavor is just right for an IPA. I love this beer, and I think nothing else accompanies hot boiled crawfish like a Jockamo [Mardi Gras] Indian Pale Ale

blindeyedbetty (189) - Utah, USA - JUN 1, 2008
12 oz. bottle pours cloudy bright-copper-penny color with 1 1/2 finger of frothy off-white head that lingers. Aroma is of pine, grass and sweet herbs. Front palate is warm and almost flowery with a caramel tinge. Middle palate is malty and the finish is a strong punch of hops with a clingy bitter aftertaste. Nice medium mouthfeel, an easily drinkable IPA that can be pleasingly paired with a variety of selections from chicken to spiced peel & eat shrimp or a salad with a strong dressing. This would stand up well and not overpower.

beerguy101 (5338) - Newark, California, USA - MAY 31, 2008
This IPA pours a medium orange gold color from a 12oz bottle. Small sized white foamy head. The aroma is citrusy and floral. A medium to light bodied IPA. The malts are caramel and fruity. The hops are citrusy and floral. Nice carbonation. Kind of a milder, less bitter IPA, a very muted hop profile and the flavors are kind of mild. Nicely balanced. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

Shag (2695) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - MAY 31, 2008
This poured an orange color with a white head. The aroma is mild with some citrus mainly grapefruit and a hint of perfume. The flavor is not exactly bursting with flavor. Mild citrus notes and slightly hoppy. Overall a pretty weak IPA but ok for some session drinking anyway.

dark yellow color. slight smell of hops with a slight taste of it as well. this would be a good starter ipa. very weak but it still has a hop base

blklab2007 (2097) - Connecticut, USA - MAY 29, 2008
bottle poured an amber in color with a one finger off white head that fell quickly. light carbonation is visible and the aromas are of piny hops, citrus, and caramel. aroma is on the dull side. flavor has some resinous bite, pine, malt, and light citrus peel. mouth feel is medium light with fairly hefty carbonation. good mid range ipa. but not as thrilling as i had visioned.

MrBunn (2588) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 23, 2008
Bottle that releases a transparent copper body with a foamy one-finger head. Aromas are crisp and hoppy... pine and citrus. That said, the flavor is fairly weak... there is obviously some alcohol present as it leaves a bit of warmth, and itís not like it comes off as watery... but it just doesnít seem like the flavor volume is turned up far enough. Maybe the hops in the aroma (pine and citrus) donít match the peppery hops presence that Iím tasting and my mind is short circuiting.
