Andygator, a creature of the swamp, is a unique high-gravity brew made with pale malt, German lager yeast, and German Perle hops. Unlike other high-gravity brews, Andygator is fermented to a dry finish with a slightly sweet flavor and subtle fruit aroma. Reaching an alcohol strength of 8% by volume, it is a Helles Dopplebock.

Extremely smooth and drinkable for what it is, a 8% doublebock. Great beer by a great brewery. 4.7

Look - a pale gold with nice lacing.
Smell - equal parts hoppy and bready, a little fruity.
Taste - bitter, nice hops up front but finishes differently with a slight sweet twist (almost grapey?) and bready maltness. Awesome! The booze is hidden very well.
Feel - smooth and high quality like all Abita beers.
Overall - super offering by Abita. My fave by them thus far but you can't go wrong with them. They go for a little drinkability in their beers, so they probably won't blow away all the beer snobs. Cheers!

A solid beer to sip on. Actually much better when mixed with Abita Turbidog (terminator) or Abita purple haze (barney). Its pretty amazing how well this beer mixes with others.

When I took my first sip of this I couldn't believe that it was 8.00% ABV. There's one word to describe this beer: smooth. It's one of the easiest drinking beers I've ever had. There aren't any flavors that jump out and punch you in palate and I think that's the point.
