2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Almost amber in color, poured a big, cream-colored head. Aroma of pine hinted at a hops forward beer, but it is really rather mild. A little caramel also. Odd aftertaste. If it weren’t for the pine/spruce, you would think you were drinking an amber ale. Not really bad, but not one that I would try again.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle; I guess Abita and I agree that all beer should have some malt flavor. I like this IPA probably because it’s maltier than most IPAs. Unlike the amber though, I tire of this flavor more quickly.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Clear amber colour, white head. Aroma of hops, honey, malts and apricot. Bitter flavour, apricot, honey, light sweet. Bitter finish, light sweet, apricot. Not bad, feels a bit old but still quite a nice drink.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bella scoperta questa IPA della abita. Arancio ambrato, splendida schiuma beige lunga e duratura. Adoro le IPA, americane in Italia non sono mai fresche ma questa è decente. La carbonatazione ha perso un po di spinta ma al naso sento gli agrumi, tanto malto e note citriche. In Bocca invece caramello e toffee, un po di erba e sentori quasi terrosi. Finale amaro al luppolo. Buona bevuta.

Pretty good IPA that is a bit sweet to go along with the hops. Good to try, probably wouldn't have if again.
