Orange pour with a white head. Nose is extremely sweet. Like lemon candies and vanilla. Some floral hops, bread, mild caramel, sugar, and grass. The flavor is just as sweet. Lots of bread, caramel, sugar, and candied lemon. Hints of vanilla, mild grape, grass, and some floral hops. Very minimal bitterness.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap, poured into a sampler at the American Beer Classic. The aroma is a bright, floral citrus blossom with undertones of bread. Thereís a light haze to the amber orange beer thatís topped by a soap white head that has moderate retention and lace. The taste is a medium bitter and medium sweet, slightly off balanced. Itís waxy with a soft fuzz and a medium body containing notes of bread crust, caramel, and grapefruit rind and finishes crisp with a fresh zip. The aftertaste is lingering, bitter wax with an herb and burnt note.

Bright cloudy Orange pour. White head. Fruity. One of the better Abitas I have had. Had this poured in small glass from draft at the American Beer Classic 2015.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
New beer Distributors, NYC bottle ($2.25): Pours light orange with a white head. Aroma is lemon and hints of caramel malts. Seems to me that the aroma actually degenerates as the beer sits. Taste is lemony. It be very mildly bitter. A hint spicy. Not very exciting, but refreshing enough.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Poured a clear golden/orange. Aroma was nothing but malt bomb. Flavor followed the nose. This was labeled as fresh through June I believe. Is it supposed to be a malt bomb? Drank this thinking it was going to be a crisp and citrusy IPA, but was very disappointed. Light body with a thin texture. Carbonation was fizzy. Little bitter to end. Couldnít drink it all though.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Golden, hazy, average and mostly diminishing head. Moderate malty and lightly sweetish aroma, light caramel and some tropical fruitiness, piney - some grapefruit hoppyness. Body is light to medium, malty and dryish flavor, faint caramel and some tropical fruitiness with piney - herbal hoppyness. Finish is average to long, malty and dryish, light tropical fruitiness with lots of piney - herbal hoppyness. Nice dryish and well hopped light bodied IPA Ė not too much caramel.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
From a bottle...pours orange with a white head. The aroma is butterscotch and grapefruit. It has a medium frothy body with soft carbonation. The flavor starts with metallic notes and an astringent backbone. The finish is a bitter medicinal palate. Not a good effort by a normaly solid brewery.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Cottage cheese, lemon zest, dandelion nose, with a hint of butter. Hazy amber, thick head, minimal lacing. Daffodil, dandelion, and lemongrass, floral but light and grassy, not pungent at all. Medium body, easy carbonation, quaffable. Very intriguing take on an IPA. There are usual floral notes, but there are overriding notes of dairy products. It tastes rather like milky flowers. I donít know how they pulled that off, but itís pretty neat. Excellent to pair with a fruit and cheese plate. Dang, Abita has been killing it lately with their IPAs.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Really an enjoyable IPA. Pint pour of decent, proper colored goldenrod with an off white head. Nose is loaded with citrus, grapefruit, bright and clean, crisp malts, resin and pine for sure. Flavor is bright citrus and bitter, grapefruit and more resin. Lighter malt notes without being overly pronounced. Lighter-medium body. Drinkable and enjoyable.
