3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12-oz. bottle into a pint glass at my house on Nov. 7, 2012 (purchased at World Market in La Mesa (San Diego, Calif.) for $1.99 on Nov. 7, 2012). Caramel amber with two fingers of frothy white head. Good foamy retention on the sides and good on the top as well.
Smelled Cascade or Columbus hops (Iím usually pretty bad at knowing which hops are which). Also got sweet floral noted and a bit of dark fruit. Some caramel late and even some rye or iced tea notes.
Tasted as a toned down version of the smell. Not as much Cascade hops and got more citrus than I thought I would. Still got that sweet dark fruit taste like the smell. Some pale notes as well.
Light-to-medium body. Thin texture. Soft (below average) carbonation. Abrupt and slightly bitter finish.
Finished this beer pretty fast, but Iím not sure what that means. Overall it was pretty good but I wasnít completely sold on the feel/palate. A couple of the ratings could have gone either way.

On tap at Marigny in NOLA. Truly not a good IPA. A bit of pine and bready malt in the nose; nothing remarkable. Taste is pretty bland - hop profile is weak. Bready malt overpowers. Medium thin body. Blah. I didnít enjoy.

Good strong flavored ipa, has much more flavors in this beer than just hops, I think they use swamp water in here, but I like it!

This is truly awful. Pure malt bomb, overly sweet, what in the world? Why even put this out in the current beer market?

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Archive Beer Boutique 100415. While this is only my 7th beer from Abita Brewing Company it is one of the best, only behind Turbodog. Poured with a very deep yet even layer of foam and a vibrant orange colour. Aromas exude pine needles and fresh picked citrus. In the mouth the beer is full bodied with the flavours hitting all parts of the mouth and staying around long after the beer has gone. Good balance of hops and malt , not too hoppy. Big thick finish with a slight sweet stickiness and no bitterness.
