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, 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 (727) - 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.

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 (697) - 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...,......

Arcadia (61) - DeLand, Florida, USA - JAN 26, 2015
Bottle from ABC. Pours an almost reddish brown with a medium white head and some strong lacing with some visible particles as well. Aroma is typical IPA fare - earth, floral, pine, and a nice malt balance. Taste is pretty sweet throughout and short on the finish; the malt comes through more than anything. Pretty dry going down and underwhelming on the whole, but not too bad for what it is. Acquire.

TattooJack (215) - Illinois, USA - JAN 18, 2015
This is a very agreeable slamming beer. There is just enough spice and hops to qualify as an IPA, but with no overwhelming flavor added (like pine) to try to make it more than it is. Sometimes you just want to drink beer, have a good time, and not analyze the process, nor micro manage the experience. When that day comes, buy a bunch of this and tear it up.

I light this out of the tap and in a plastic cup, mostly while standing on the deck of the Natchez while steaming down (or maybe it's up?) the Mississippi. Sometimes, I drink things just for the memories. It tastes pretty good, too: a little caramel, a little earth, a little (too) thin. Not bad at all. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
