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.

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.

Pours a golden amber color with big fizzy head. Aromas of fruit and citrus peel and some piney notes. Flavors of tropical fruits and some piney hops.

This is an IPA? Not very hoppy. Malt forward but not hoppy. Toast and light hop. Basic brew. Pass. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottiglia 35 cl. Bel colore color ambra, schiuma fine e persistente. Aroma di malto e caramello, in bocca malto e subito dopo luppolo, anche nel finale lungo. Corpo leggero, bassa carbonazione. Niente di strabiliante, ma molto gradevole.

Color ambra, ha leggero naso agrumato. Sicuramente la bottiglia provata non era in forma, ma comunque ben lontana dalle migliori Ipa

Bottle - pours deep orange with a short lived head. Aroma is resin hop and malt. Taste isn’t as hoppy as expected. Dry quite smooth orange citrus finish.

From a bottle. Pretty much what you would expect, well made IPA with a huge hop punch and resin finish. Good stuff.

darbeer75 (322) - Round Rock, Texas, USA - DEC 27, 2015
Aroma: fruity and slightly hoppy; Appearance: dark amber with pillow head that dissipates fairly quickly; nice lacing; Taste: faintly piney and grapefruity; almost wouldn’t know it’s an IPA unless you told me; Palate: medium body with medium bitter finish; Overall: smooth, drinkable and completely unremarkable; would not buy again unless deeply discounted.

Onestamente terribile. Una delle peggiori ipa che abbia mai assaggiato. Totale assenza di luppolo

wombat23 (389) - Texas, USA - DEC 10, 2015
12 oz. bottle. Pale amber with beige head. Aroma of malt, subdued grapefruit and citrus. Taste: malt, some mild pine and grapefruit. Some bitterness. Overall, rather bland for an IPA.

trapped (2025) - New York, TURKEY - OCT 22, 2015
Bottle. Rich yellow with small off-white foamy head, grassy hops aroma, medium carbonation, medium bitter hoppy taste with a hint of mango flavor, medium bitter finish. Quite mediocre as an IPA.
