COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

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.

GBBF Day 1. Bottle share. Lightly hazy amber beer, small pale cream colour head. Palate is light and semi dry and crispy. Caramel malts, little cream. Mild marmalade hops and hop spice. Touch of ripe orange. Dry finish. Okay.

harrisoni (13627) - 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.

Scopey (6726) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 12, 2014
Bottle at GBBF 2014. It pours clear amber with a decent white head. The nose is toasty, leather, varnish, dull caramel and stone fruits. The taste is bitter, earth, leather, varnish, pine needles and citrus peel with a drying finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Ok.

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

Hansen (6580) - Assentoft, DENMARK - JUL 22, 2014
Nice amber coloured and almost clear. Has a hoppy aroma, citrus and fatty malts. Flavor is hoppy with more thick malty structure. Bitter finish.

jrodooo5 (1001) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - JUL 5, 2014
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!

JHeath99 (925) - Warner Robins, Georgia, USA - JUL 5, 2014
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.
