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.

fiulijn (16658) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 5, 2008
Clear amber color. It starts with a quite nice hop aroma, almost fleshy, meaty; then it turns more into toffee. Medium body, with a sweet toffee flavor, soft mouthfeel, strong but not aggressive bitterness. The hops show both some resiny and fruity character, but the final gets a cookie character too. An original American Pale Ale.

harrisoni (15649) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 12, 2014
At GBBF 2014. Clear deep amber colour lasting beige head. Toffee grapefruit american ipa aroma. Ok bitterness. A little lacking in the malt depth. Some crystalline toffee flavour. It’s fine. Not too exciting but competent enough. Quite like the slightly toast bitter finish. Ok.

Clear copper color, steady off-white head. Sweet, berry-honeyish, hoppy aroma. Medium-bodied. Grassy, woody, a bit medicinal hoppyness in the flavor. Some odd spices?

brokensail (13757) - Orange County, California, USA - FEB 12, 2010
A: Copper in color, a bit of foam but not really any lacing. S: Some citrus hop presence, lots of malt. T: Some pine, some citrus flavor, malt, and a bitter, astringent aftertaste. M: Lighter side in terms of body, moderate carbonation. D: Decent, not really what I was hoping for in an IPA.

Oakes (13659) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 24, 2009
Hazy amber. Thick head. Herbal, woody hop aroma is a little faint. Fruity-berryish hop character and fairly low bitterness. Poorly extracted malts. Kind of watery.

bhensonb (12758) - Woodland, California, USA - OCT 15, 2008
Bottle from T’s Liquor in Tempe, AZ. Pours amber with a decent beige head. Fruity hop aroma over mild caramel. Medium body with frothy carbonation. Flavor is resin and fruit (citrus?) over caramel. It seems a bit harsh, but arguably balanced. Not a smooth one.
