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.

I see reviewers that have suggested ginger, pine, juniper berry, grass, aspirin those are good calls and might add a touch of tea and faint chalkiness. The water (soft?) used may help give this a novel taste. I am surprised that I like an IPS that down plays the hops this much but must say if is a decent session brew and underated. Impressive nose.

Hangover (1056) - Atlanta, Alabama, USA - JAN 30, 2008
Amber pour, thin yet attractive tan head. Pine and citrus hop aroma. Medium bodied. Initially there was a nice earthy malt feel to it, led to a piney hop middle and a lingering grapefruit/citrus finish. Pretty good considering Iím usually not that impressed with Abita.

OldGrowth (2595) - North Carolina, USA - JAN 22, 2008
bottle, from Cary Wholefoods. Ok aroma, sweet, little pine, little citrus,a almond streak. Clean orange color, small head that faded quickly, little to no lacing. Bitter sweet flavor, Much more citrusy, grapefruit mainly, a kind of soapy taste too. Medium body, lite creamy mouthfeel, bitter finish, Eh, nothing to get excited about. Guess you could say easy to drink. Um , yeah, thatís what Iíll go with.

Ughsmash (7087) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 20, 2008
Bottled. Poured clear medium caramel with a light cap of off-white head. The aroma picked up juicy grapefruit and assorted candies with some caramel, floral, and lighter fruity notes.. very sweet overall and not bad. The flavor had sticky light fruit and toffee sweetness with low-to-moderate citrusy bitterness.. OK balance, but not really good on any front. Just shy of medium-bodied.. tacky, bitter finish.

BlackDonald (1126) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JAN 20, 2008
Pretty bland and average. Pretty tame on the hops, with a spicy malt character along with some caramel in the finish. Average

madcow75 (426) - Sun Prairie, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 19, 2008
Bottle. Pours hazy amber with a thin to medium white head. Good looking brew. Aroma is mostly caramel, not getting a lot of hop character in the nose. Taste is caramel and earthiness, sweet too. Slight bitter finish, thin to medium body.

Poobah (259) - New Orleans, Louisiana, USA - JAN 19, 2008
Good malty aroma with unigue nearly bronze color. Malty intro yet a bit light on body, with some carbonation. There is a lingering clover honey sweetness and good IPA bitterness in the finish. Not the best IPA I have tasted but certainly far from the worst.

KingpinIPA (841) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 19, 2008
Caramel color. Smell of hops, grapefruit, vitamins, malt, caramel and orange zest. Taste of hops, pine, caramel, citrus zest/peal, malt, grapefruit and copper. Its a basic IPA but nothing to JOCKAMO me off about.
