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.

Not bad, but a little light on the hops for it being an IPA. That being said, it does have a nice flavor and is quite drinkable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.

Drjohnrock (540) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 3, 2015
Twelve ounce bottle from Abita variety 12 pack bought at Jeff’s Marathon, tasted on April 3, 2015. Cloudy amber color, pleasant aroma with citrus and tropical fruit dominating, well integrated flavors with prominent tropical fruit character. Hops presence could be bigger but this is still a good beer.

Maris (1099) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - APR 2, 2015
UPDATED: APR 3, 2015 From a 355ml bottle on 3/4/2015. Pours a very dark golden with a small to medium head. The aroma is a balance of caramel malt and fruity hops. Flavour wise, it’s more on the malty side, with carmel and toffee notes prominent, though there’s a bit of citrus fruit sweetness in the background. The bitterness is moderate and lacks the usual grapefruit/resin character typical of US style IPAs. Medium bodied and average carbonation. Okay but mediocre for the style.

hawthorne00 (2686) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAR 9, 2015
Bottle, bb 11/15. Amber with an inch of white head that lasts well. Aroma of bitter oranges, caramel, diesel, pine, some odd notes that are kind of like the meaty end of tropical fruits. Sweet with toffee, some more of those fetid fruit notes, pine, Moderate bitterness struggles to get through the sweetness. Not good.

Got in bottle. Stink of a hop note. More caramel than a flower scent. Also more caramel then hop bitterness. Not as easy drinking as previous Abita beers I’ve had. May be more appealing on tap. Had high hopes but let down in the end.

BeerGolem (728) - Quebec, CANADA - FEB 21, 2015
Bottle at Napoleon’s House (New Orleans). Pours clear orange with thick frothy head and some lacing. Aroma: hops, tropical fruits, pine. Taste is resinous and a bit woody. Mild bitterness. Flat finish. Dry aftertaste. Refreshing. Good IPA, nothing spectacular.

ttoadee (831) - Austin, Texas, USA - FEB 20, 2015
Amber pour, white head. Nose is pine. Bitter. Middle is sweet malt and and a hint of metal. Finish is bitter, and the alcohol shows a little. For me, a little unbalanced.

Darker colored IPA, but very smooth. Had the Southern. Not overly bold flavor but enjoyed it...

PhatB420 (710) - Pittsfield, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 8, 2015
12oz into a glass. Pours a trust c orange amber. Head is marvelous. Frontal cream based concoctions, 4cm, white beauty. Lacing is all over. Aroma of orange fields, malty sides, the a hop whiff. Taste: metallic hop gardens, malts galore, amber ambivalence, slight hop makeover, eh, OK. But the fluid hop push is there. Nice hop bitter bite to the end. But could be pushed...,......
