2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Not much going on on the nose. Semi sweet malty flavors wash out the hops on the backbone. The deep golden pour with lasting thin white head are the highlights of this pour. Drinkable but there’s much better readily available out there.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
I saw this in the local supermarket when I was buying cat food. (Not for me. For may cats.) (So far.)
It’s an IPA, so this hop-head must try it. I also remember Abita’s Jockamo IPA as being pretty decent, so why the ticker not?
Waiting for it to cool a bit, I drank some rot gut rye from a fellow who owed me some bucks (a strange reversal of fate) and didn’t understand that I preferred a good beer to any other heated drink.
I popped the lid and made a decent pour. Good looking brew.
I’ll have to rate a fresh bottle tamale. The rye is hitting me now.
Two days later I opened another bottle and poured. Nice look, a clear light orange/amber, lots of tiny bubbles, some beading, a thick, creamy head, and gobs of lace left as I drink. The aroma is mainly pine, some zest, and a bit of citrus. The flavor begins on a sweet malt note, soon replaced by hoppy tastes reflective of the nose. The bitterness is moderate, but solid from the middle through the dry finish. Not bad. Abita can do pretty good when they try.

Light but flavorful. I got it in a build your own six pack and went back a few days later for more.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Medium sized white head with good retention and lacing. Lightly hazy, gold colored brew. Pleasant nose of citrus and parfumes with a hint of grainy, pale malts. Body is light, good carbonation and light resin. Nice, fruity hop flavors, hint tropical and juicy citrus notes and a solid pale malt backing. Fairly dry finish is fruity and juicy, tame bite that works well with this brew. A LOT better than expected for Abita. 12oz. bottle from statelineliquors. nice lil quaffer!
