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 copper color with a foamy white head. Aroma is hops and sweet malt. Flavor is malt and hops with quite a bit of sweetness balancing out the hop bitterness. I enjoyed this because it had the sweetness balancing out the hops that you usually find in hop monsters, but this is much less thick and syrupy. Good IPA.

mcmd (315) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JUN 19, 2008
Pours clear copper, minimal head. Aroma of pine hops and sweet malt. Taste is fairly sweet and malty up front with bittering hops at the finish. Thin body, almost too easy drinking for an IPA. Nothing exciting, but a nice drinkable beer.

Bottle. Pretty, translucent copper pour. Small dense white foam head. Nose is piney hops, caramel, toffee, and sweet malts. Maybe even some Bit O Honey. Taste is more pine and toffee, more Bit O Honey, some sweet malts, and light caramel. Lots of Bit O Honey as I go through this with piney, resinous hops. Rather tasty! Body is medium with lingering bitterness and mild carbonation. The finish is more toffee, pine laden hops, caramel, sweet, chewy malts and honey notes.

Silphium (3191) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - JUN 17, 2008
Clear copper body with effervescent carbonation; thick, puffy buff head that leaves nice lacing. Sweet aroma with resiny hops and a caramely, toasty malt backbone. Piney. Reminds me of a Stone beer. The body is rather thin, bitter, and resiny, with heavy emphasis on rather flavorless bittering hops. Prickly. Bitter, almost caustic finish. Not particularly pleasant.

Bottle-New Orleans. A maltier IPA with great balance of hops and malt sweetness. Leaves a smooth finish on the palate. Great hop flavor with a sweet rather than bitter finish. Very enjoyable

12 oz bottle-pours a big foamy off white head that laces and amber color. Aroma is nice citrus hops, secondary medium malt. Taste is citrus hops, secondary medium malt. A good cross over, mostly English style, IPA. OK/mild carbonation. Thanks to Joe-jwc215 for sharing.

Iím really surprised at the relatively low ratings on this one; itís def. a love/hate beer - you see one 4.3 then a 2.7 - what gives. Iím actually very happy with this beer, good hoppiness but nothing to bowl you over - great balance.

A very good IPA from Abita. Very crisp hoppiness, yet very smooth. Nice strength and flavor. Bottle at Coppís Place in New Orleans.

Juelze (1141) - Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 10, 2008
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!
