Just got done watching The Princess and the Frog with my daughter... time for a N'Orleans brew.
Served from a 12 oz. shorty bottle at between fridge and cellar temperature in my SABL glass.
A - Bright, glowing orange amber with chartreuse glints during the pour. Medium bodied off-white head with fair retention and great sticky, ringy lacing.
S - Vibrant hoppiness. Sweet, floral and citrusy but with no hint of acidity. Honeylike maltiness, but subdued.
T - Supre light honeyed malt sweetness along with a bland water-cracker bread character, followed by a powdery, pungent American hop showcase. Quick move through the middle straight to the semi-dry swallow. Pleasant aftertaste of hops and honey. Bitterness lingers, but isn't overdone.
M - Slight viscosity and a nice, sharp tingle without an overly carbonated body. Mouth filling and sudsy. Satisfying swallow.
D - This is definitely one of the tamer APAs I've had, but that comes as a good thing in a style that's too easy to overdo with a heavy hand in the hops. Excellent for general consumption when you don't want to abuse your palette but are still looking for nice, crisp bittering and the ability to enjoy more than one. One of the better offerings in the Abita stable.

The appearance of this IPA is actually quite stunning in a highly carbonated, cheap sort of way. The head was a tower of ivory foam with a dense cap. The body was a glowing, brassy color of copper but it was obscured by a torrent of tiny bubbles that clung to the glass.
The nose presents a strong malt base with caramel, tea leaves and barley. The hop scent is old world floral with hints of lemon, pine and grapefruit.
The flavor matches the scent nearly identically. Strong malt base, maybe tea leaf, with a floral, pine, tinges of lemon and a pithy grapefruit.
The feel is dry but it has almost no carbonated bite, despite the appearance.
Very simple IPA with stronger Pale Ale qualities than hop profile.
