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.

Poured from a 12 oz. can. Has an orange/brownish color. Smell is of hops, some citrus. Taster is bitter, some malts, kind of lacking in flavor. Overall I was unimpressed with this beer.

Quite as most Abita beers, water and incipient. But it is interesting to have on a barbecue gathering just to enjoy the time.

Apparently "Jockamo" was the original title for "Iko Iko", a New Orleans ear-worm so insidiously awful that I would rather stab myself in the anvil, stirrup and cochlea than endure it again. Iím more positive on the beer. Itís not big enough to meet the beer geekís passion for hop bombs, but itís a decent, flavoursome IPA for those with more modest expectations. Clear bronze with a thick head showing fair retention and some lace. Big fruity aroma of white peach, mango, squeeze of lemon. Soft carbonation. Swirl of summer fruits on the tongue. Pity that a slight metallic taint to the finish clashes with the soft fruits and detracts from the overall effect. Still, I couldnít find much to dislike here apart from the fact I now have "Iko Iko" on a loop in my head. Knife please. (355ml bottle from Carrington Cellars, Katoomba)

355mL bottles. Pours a clear copper hie with a thick one finger white head. Nice sweet caramel and grapefruit notes on the nose with the addition of resinous pine in the flavour. I enjoyed this beer..

On tap at Marigny in NOLA. Truly not a good IPA. A bit of pine and bready malt in the nose; nothing remarkable. Taste is pretty bland - hop profile is weak. Bready malt overpowers. Medium thin body. Blah. I didnít enjoy.

Good strong flavored ipa, has much more flavors in this beer than just hops, I think they use swamp water in here, but I like it!

12oz bottle. Poured a clear orange color with a small white head. Aroma was light sweet malts, touch of toasted malts. Flavor was light fruity notes, malts. Okay.

This is truly awful. Pure malt bomb, overly sweet, what in the world? Why even put this out in the current beer market?

Amber pour from a 12oz glass. Slight white head. Malty nose. Malty taste with a slight hop character and bitter finish. A mild IPA.
