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.

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.

Acknud (1081) - Morganfield, Kentucky, USA - JAN 13, 2008
Decent beer. Amber pour. Malty aroma. Taste is more malt than bitter and the bitter leaves a slight off taste in my mouth.

nuplastikk (4708) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 11, 2008
12oz bottle. Amber-tan color, filtered. Hoppy, fairly standard IPA. If you donít have anything nice to say...

3fourths (8238) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 10, 2008
UPDATED: APR 24, 2008 IPA rating #300. Has a billowy off-white head that stacks up about an inch on this beer. "Very attractive" you should say with a squawk. Nose of birch and juniper scented citrus hops, with a lighter presence of ginger-pine hops. A strange smell for sure. Wet, moderately thick, lush up front, with a flavor that pauses for a second before developing into a strange ginger, pine sap and juniper berry flavor. Part of me finds it unappetizing and part of me likes it, so I donít know what to think.

Collint (475) - Sylva, North Carolina, USA - JAN 10, 2008
12 oz bottle thanks Tikie, poured a frothy head, color is light amber. Taste like an IPA, not as hoppy as I thought it was going to be. The end is citrus and delecious, not a bad IPA.

GreatLibations (1854) - Last Supper, Arizona, USA - JAN 9, 2008
Jockamo pours a beautiful amber honey color with a modest froth. Good head retention with a lasting full lace. Aromas of biscuits and snappy citrus rind. Full nectar with soft and creamy residual affers. A big malty backbone delivers the goods. Biscuits, citrus rind, caramel. Itís all in balance for a truely enjoyable experience.The finish is bittered with citrusy asprin leaving a bit of caramel on the palate. A solid recommendation for a well made, balanced IPA.

wilkie (1208) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - JAN 6, 2008
Bottle. Amber-copper colored, small, lasting white head. Aroma is some hops, but mostly a caramel sweet malty smell. Flavor is malty with a little hop kick in the end. Little grass in aftertaste.

bleeng (1544) - Houston nowhere near Beersel, Texas, USA - JAN 5, 2008
12 oz bottle. Pours dark copper with a small white head-no lacing. Nice fresh hop nose. Taste is bitter on the start, with a nice, moderate (wet) hop profile coming through. A nice malt background provides a good finish. Thin on the mouth detracts from the nice taste. A good solid IPA, ideal for sessioning. Glad to see Abita "stretching" out a bit. I still cannot find this beer in Houston-this was purchased in Louisiana.

Cornfield (5552) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - JAN 4, 2008
I only picked up a single 12 oz. bottle, but this one may actually merit a return visit despite my mediocre rating. (I began by not expecting too much from Abita.) It pours a pale, clear amber body with a respectable head. Unfortunately, that doesnít last a long time. The aroma has a soft caramel sweetness heavily covered by hoppy notes of zest of lemon and grapefruit. The flavor begins quietly with sweet, sugary malt. Then the hops take over, not overtly aggressive, but sturdy enough to impress me with their flavorful bitterness. A touch of resinous pine and some floral bitterness are added to the aforementioned hop sensations. Nice moderate, prolonged bitter finish.

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 3, 2008
Amber color with a moderate, light beige head. The smell of a orange that is on the cusp, or slightly past the cusp of over-ripe, you know, the mushy one that is indented from one of the healthy brethren. Some hints of caramel and toasted malt as the higher aromas are driven off. Toasted malt and caramel in the front. A decent dose of citric and floral hops in the middle that continue to crescendo to the finish. LInger is rather sharp with a citric hops bitterness. Has some flavors of a decent oktoberfest in the malt profile, but the hops return this one to the somewhat norm in APA/IPAs.
