I had the opportunity to sample this beer at Taco Mac and was slightly impressed. It would not be my first pick when it comes to an IPA, but for a brand I had not heard too much about, I was happy with the choice.
The beer looked good in the pint glass, with a good head and slightly above average lacing. However, the hop character brought out a sense of yearning for something more. I could have bargained for more lively hops, with more of the Sweetwater Balance. But again, if all beers were created equal we wouldn't have this site..
Overall, I would say that its a little better than average for an IPA, but nothing spectacular

Quite handsome orangey amber color with lots of suds in the Orval chalice. Head retention is average. Plenty of prickly carbonation in the mouth. This would be a refreshing jolt if you were really thirsty.
There is just a puff of hop aromatics at first. Some crackery malt with a touch of sweetness. Some resiny notes and rather tangy overall. There is an odd flavor that reminds me of the aftertaste of fish. A mineral touch and slight bitter aftertaste.
As a Pale Ale this is quite drinkable and smooth, but I wouldn't look to this for much hop flavor. Abita is one of the breweries I totally ignore, but someone brought this over so I had to try it. From the 12 oz bottle.

Dark gold appearance with a thick, sticky head and plenty of fine carbonation bubbles rising upward. Fair pine and citrus hop aroma; honey dew melon; slight biscuit scent. Nicely balanced bread and sweet bitterness in the flavors. Medium bodied; dry finish.
A tasty, light and easy drinking IPA. Decent balance throughout the taste experience although the mouthfeel may come across a bit weak and watery. It's not as in-your-face as west coast styled IPAs, so it may appeal more to someone looking for a session-styled IPA.
