I got this bottle in a trade with DLucky. Thanks Dan!
It pours a nice clear orange gold with a 2 finger head of foam.
The smell has good notes of citrus and floral hops with some caramel malt thrown in the give some sweetness. I like the nose.
The taste is at first very bitter with the citrus and floral hops but mid palate, I get some good caramel sweetness along with some earthy malt goodness. It finishes with both some bitterness and some sweetness and the aftertaste is mostly bitter. I'd be tempted to call this an English Style IPA.
A nice brew here. Good medium mouthfeel, medium carbonation, a pretty solid balance between the flavours and quite drinkable. Nice job Abita!
Btw, the head retention was quite good and the lacing was as well. Palme (4857) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUN 2, 2017
0.355l bottle @ Tribeca Tavern, shared with The Girlfriend. A crystal clear one. The girlfriend complained that I had to close one eye to see the clarity on this one by that indicating that I have had enough tonight. Anyhow, as mentioned its a crystal clear one. Hard to see the color. Goldenish? Think so? The head is sidesticking and soft lacing while off-white in color. Soft fruity nose. Red fruits. Not too much more really. Dark peachy in a way, orange zest bitter. Soft birch, a little bit of old citrus. Not a really memorable one, but its still a decently tasty easy drinking IPA. 15.06.2015 BeerRenter76 (1055) - Texas, USA - MAY 9, 2017
Originally rated on 12/29/08. Jockamo pours a copper body with average carbonation, very little lace. Aroma was nice... at first, sweet floral aroma that got a tiny bit funky as it warmed. Flavor was o.k. but it pretty much just bitter. Overall it was better than i expected but its a little above average IPA. il_vosa (23) - Torino, ITALY - DEC 10, 2016
Pours with an amber-brown colour and a frizzy head. The taste is good but not so hoppy, not a real IPA. An average beer. Bricks (1160) - Delaware, USA - NOV 14, 2016
Great reddish brown color.. not much head. Smell is a bit malt heavy, but not offputting. Taste is above average.. more APA than IPA.
