Great aroma... Taste isn't quite as wonderful but it holds up as Abitas best ipa... Loads better than jockamo... Bitterness strong at the tail end...

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!

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Pours a slightly dingy gold with a medium to thin head and aromas of grain silo dust with a little perfumed soap. Flavor is grainy and bitter with little hops direction to make things interesting. This would be pointless as a Pale Ale, and as an IPA it is very, very weak.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: APR 14, 2014 Pours slightly hazy, buttery orange with a moderate white head. Nose is apricot/peach and citrus zest, a little clean resin. Flavor is light at first with a bloom of hop bitterness in the finish - the hint of apricot/peach throughout. Body is medium light, with clean palate. A nice effort for Abita. Overall, nice refreshing, straightforward beer.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Slightly hazy, orange-yellow pour with a rocky, white head. The aroma has spicy hops with grapefruit and light grass. It has a medium body with oily texture and average carbonation. The taste is well-balanced with bittersweet flavor and a quick, neutral finish.

3.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Nice citrusy aroma with some floral hints. Front end hops hot nicely but are quickly taken over by a malty middle and backbone that has a bit of a molasses taste. Promising start but disappointing finish.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle - Pours lightly hazy golden amber with a foamy off-white head. Nose is lots of pine, grass, and herbal hops with lemon and dry bready malt. Taste has some dank onion hops, pine, herbal and a touch of grass. Dry malt, mineral, and orange marmalade. Sticky, bitter grass/pine finish. Biting carbonation and a medium body. I quite liked this--I wonder if others are knocking it for being Abita. Would love to see this in a blind tasting.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle from Wine Academy. Poured a good looking clear deep orange body with a frothy light white head. Aroma is the weakest part of this beer. Notes of rotting oranges, bad dough, wet toast, mud. Nice medium body with softer carbonation, creaminess on the start and bitterness on the finish. Flavor is better than the aroma, old citrus rind, lemons, tropical fruit rinds, crusts. Way better than I was expecting.
