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.

Pours an amber color with caramel white head. Smells of citrus, bitter hops, sweet malt and some spice. Taste is sweet malt upfront with a slightly bitter end. Notes of citrus, pine and spice are present.

Martinus (2892) - Baarle-Nassau, NETHERLANDS - OCT 15, 2014
Clear amber colour, white head. Aroma of hops, honey, malts and apricot. Bitter flavour, apricot, honey, light sweet. Bitter finish, light sweet, apricot. Not bad, feels a bit old but still quite a nice drink.

Fashawn (117) - Montesarchio, ITALY - OCT 11, 2014
Bella scoperta questa IPA della abita. Arancio ambrato, splendida schiuma beige lunga e duratura. Adoro le IPA, americane in Italia non sono mai fresche ma questa è decente. La carbonatazione ha perso un po di spinta ma al naso sento gli agrumi, tanto malto e note citriche. In Bocca invece caramello e toffee, un po di erba e sentori quasi terrosi. Finale amaro al luppolo. Buona bevuta.

Pretty good IPA that is a bit sweet to go along with the hops. Good to try, probably wouldn't have if again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle split at GBBF ’14, day 1, 12/08/14. Very lightly hazed golden amber. Nose is caramel malt, spice, orange pith, grapefruit vibes. Taste comprises toasted malt, pine cloak, grapefruit, spice, bread dough, caramel malt. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close with lightly skunked hop notes. Ok IPA.

Attractive copper golden with tan head. Aroma is sweet with some tropical fruits. Flavor is a bit disappointing. Sugary sweet up front some bitterness some grassy hops. Finish is a bit sweet with a hint of a corn flavor.
