COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Aroma: fruity and slightly hoppy; Appearance: dark amber with pillow head that dissipates fairly quickly; nice lacing; Taste: faintly piney and grapefruity; almost wouldn’t know it’s an IPA unless you told me; Palate: medium body with medium bitter finish; Overall: smooth, drinkable and completely unremarkable; would not buy again unless deeply discounted.

Onestamente terribile. Una delle peggiori ipa che abbia mai assaggiato. Totale assenza di luppolo

12 oz. bottle. Pale amber with beige head. Aroma of malt, subdued grapefruit and citrus. Taste: malt, some mild pine and grapefruit. Some bitterness. Overall, rather bland for an IPA.

Bottle. Rich yellow with small off-white foamy head, grassy hops aroma, medium carbonation, medium bitter hoppy taste with a hint of mango flavor, medium bitter finish. Quite mediocre as an IPA.

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. I’m more positive on the beer. It’s not big enough to meet the beer geek’s passion for hop bombs, but it’s 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 couldn’t 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 didn’t 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!
