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.

Darker colored IPA, but very smooth. Had the Southern. Not overly bold flavor but enjoyed it...

12oz into a glass. Pours a trust c orange amber. Head is marvelous. Frontal cream based concoctions, 4cm, white beauty. Lacing is all over. Aroma of orange fields, malty sides, the a hop whiff. Taste: metallic hop gardens, malts galore, amber ambivalence, slight hop makeover, eh, OK. But the fluid hop push is there. Nice hop bitter bite to the end. But could be pushed...,......

Arcadia (61) - DeLand, Florida, USA - JAN 26, 2015
Bottle from ABC. Pours an almost reddish brown with a medium white head and some strong lacing with some visible particles as well. Aroma is typical IPA fare - earth, floral, pine, and a nice malt balance. Taste is pretty sweet throughout and short on the finish; the malt comes through more than anything. Pretty dry going down and underwhelming on the whole, but not too bad for what it is. Acquire.

TattooJack (515) - Illinois, USA - JAN 18, 2015
This is a very agreeable slamming beer. There is just enough spice and hops to qualify as an IPA, but with no overwhelming flavor added (like pine) to try to make it more than it is. Sometimes you just want to drink beer, have a good time, and not analyze the process, nor micro manage the experience. When that day comes, buy a bunch of this and tear it up.

I light this out of the tap and in a plastic cup, mostly while standing on the deck of the Natchez while steaming down (or maybe it's up?) the Mississippi. Sometimes, I drink things just for the memories. It tastes pretty good, too: a little caramel, a little earth, a little (too) thin. Not bad at all. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pretty decent cask at iron horse. Nice citra aroma but a bit too earthy for my tastes. I give this beer 1.2 thumbs up.

HIGHB4LL (837) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - NOV 1, 2014
12 oz. bottle from Cash Wise in Watford City. Appearance: finger copper head, copper color, clear, ok lacing. Aroma: heavy caramel, grass hops. Palate: medium-light body, average carbonation, bitter finish, sticky and also slightly thin texture. Taste: heavy caramel sweetness, into light grassy hops that grows and becomes more bitter. Overall, nothing special, thinness is off, and transition form sweet to bitter is not smooth.

Bottle; I guess Abita and I agree that all beer should have some malt flavor. I like this IPA probably because its maltier than most IPAs. Unlike the amber though, I tire of this flavor more quickly.
