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.

12oz. Bottle: Aroma of hops, resin, and grapefruit. Poured amber in color with a medium-sized, rocky, off-white head that lasted throughout. Clear. Lightly sparkling. Excellent lacing. Medium to heavily bitter flavor. Tastes of resinous hops, ginger, and pine. Medium body. Chalky, tingly texture. Lively carbonation. Bitter, hoppy finish.

12oz - Aroma of caramel, pine and earty hops. Pours transparent copper with a medium head and good lacing. Flavor is medicinal pine hops, caramel malt, rusty water with a very bitter finish. Palate is tart and sticky. Overall it’s pretty unbalanced and not too good.

Pours beautifully. Foggy orange copper with a smaller creme head. Hope it tastes as good as it looks. Nose is a bit mild, but decently hoppy with a citric tone to it. Seems a bit unbalanced. Flavor is nice. Smooth hoppy edge with noticeable citrus. Feel has a decent liquid thing going on and the carbonation is a bit low, but smooth and feels good. Overall I have to say this is the most interesting thing I have had from Abita to date. I think this is the first time I have felt they have attempted at pushing the envelope.

Bottle. Amber body, small white head, caramel nose. Estery flavors with some spicy hops (Fuggles?) and caramel but somewhat weak tasting overall.

12 oz bottle purchased at Oak Tree. Pours a thin clear reddish copper color with an average size fluffy white head. Initial aroma had a burst of citrus hops and caramel. After the initial burst the aroma fades and is much more subdued and not in a good way. Body is thin and watery with lots of fizzy carbonation that feels pumped in. Flavor it’s, uhm well it’s sort of like, you see, it kind of reminds me of. Flat out if this is an IPA then the flavor SUCKS!! The commercial description might as well read "Looking for flavor in Jockamo IPA on Mardi Gras Day is a tradition for many New Orleans families".

Clear copper, with a sizzling, short-lived white head. OK nose, slightly sweet with a slight bit of kumquat and some musty grain. Decent flavor, somewhat orangey, a bit floral, medium bitterness. Surprisingly good coming from Abita.

Eyedrinkale (3213) - Astoria, New York, USA - FEB 5, 2008
Bottle drank on Fat Tuesday. Golden with a dense head. Aroma is perfumy hops with just a faint maltiness. Surprisingly the big bubbled head sticks around for a few minutes. Flavor is on the sweet side, almost candyish. Balanced.

DocLock (7733) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 5, 2008
Pours deep copper with off-white head. The aroma is heavy hops, some fruity berry notes, caramel malt, and honey. The flavor is on the bitter side, with plenty of hops, and some interlaced fruit flavors. This reminds me a lot of Roxy Rolles. MY only beef is that the malt seems to fall out late and be overwhelmed by the hops, but that is a minor beef. I’m glad I have a sixer of this one.

UPDATED: FEB 5, 2008 bottle. pours red orange with a moderate off white head. some light pine aroma. taste is resinous hops, caramel, a nice malt backbone, and a solid bitter. reminds me of SN celebration but a touch less sweet. this is what i like in an ipa. not too floral, but with a solid resin bite. definitely the best of the abitas i have tried so far.
