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.

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 it’s not like it comes off as watery... but it just doesn’t seem like the flavor volume is turned up far enough. Maybe the hops in the aroma (pine and citrus) don’t match the peppery hops presence that I’m tasting and my mind is short circuiting.

12-oz. Thanks, Skoi! Not too much happening here, really. Mild nose of light earthy pine and some sweaty butter. Lightish, somewhat fizzy body with more of the pine, earth, and butteriness. Not much finish. In addition to the diacetyl issue, there’s a very definitely timid recipe happening here. Not much of a beer overall.

Davinci (295) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 23, 2008
Nice caramally orange pour, good head, firm lacing. Very roasty, mild citrus aroma. Very roasty flavors, mild vanilla, mild bitter. This seams a little out of style for me, howevber it is very drinkable. Body is very creamy.

FunkyBrewster (1518) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 22, 2008
Aroma is very sweet with some roasted malt notes. Color is a deep brown with some orange peaking through. Sweet honey and roasted character in the start and a bit of spicy hoppiness in the finish. Nice full creamy body. Good IPA overall, not very hoppy for the style though.

Prob best beer I had in New Orleans. Not overly hop bitter - a dainty, delicate copper color lends itself to a fairly malty character. Very balanced, drinkable, flavorful, and underrated in my opinion. The flavor profile and palate is a complete clone of Ballast Point Big Eye (maybe just a notch worse)... def better than 3.2.

ElJefe (553) - Rochester, New York, USA - MAY 18, 2008
Golden amber with a thin white head that dissipates quickly. Pretty light, fruity aroma of peaches and some citrus. Lightly bitter flavor, orange rind mostly. Somewhat short finish, especially for an IPA.

Sammy (9256) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 17, 2008
Pours peachy with foaming head that dissapears. A bit of hop aroma. Some fruity citrus hop taste at first, and then watered down. Drinkable stuff. Serviceable IPA.Recently found at Premiere Gourmet. Strong carbonation.

SphinxTX (2876) - Mata Gorda, Texas, USA - MAY 15, 2008
Bottle thanks to Hopdog! Poured a nice hazy orange/amber with nice off-white head, good retention. Aroma of some slight grapefruitish citris. Flavor is semi-sweet, hoppy citris and hoppy bitter. Palate is medium carb, medium-full body. Nice balanced beer....This would rate a seconf up to a begginner IPA.

Cush (2) - USA - MAY 15, 2008 does not count
Slightly above average for my IPA needs. Good hop flavor, aroma could be better. Rather sweet finish leavs me craving more hops.

May 14, 2008; 12 oz. bottle. My first Abita brew. Yeasty & vaguely floral aroma. A malty, spicy IPA at first swig, nicely balanced by remarkable long-lived hop bitterness. Flavor has a cinnamon note in there somewhere. Zesty & fun, but not as full-flavored as the best of the style.
