3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap in New Orleans and from bottle more recently. Pours clear copper with soapy white head. Orange citrus and herbacious earthy flavor, some caramel malt flavor, but really quite well balanced and drinkable. This was an unexpected surprise from Abita. I would buy on a regular basis, depending on what else is available in the store at the time. Very decent sample. Not over the top at all and not the strongest, but decent, definitely.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

Pour is amber. Aroma is fantastic floral, malt, and grass. More malt than expected, not enough umph from the hops.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Kind of a run of the mill ipa. Decent copper pour w/ a quickly fading tan head that leaves spotty lacing. The aroma has an adequate amount of hops to draw some interest. The flavor is slightly hoppy & bitter but finishes rather clean. It’s a little thin on the palate but goes down easily. Everything screams average here!

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle from a sampler. Pours a transparent amber with a layer of off white head. Aroma of malts and hops. Taste of bitterness and malts but very bland.
