I've never been keen on Abita products with the exception of PurpleHaze but I've been buying singles of as many ipa's this summer as I can, so I thought I'd give it a try. The first ominous sign was the best by date of 5/12/13...3 months ago. Forging ahead,the appearance is fine with a typical coppery orange color and cream colored head which hangs in there pretty well. The aroma is decent with some pine, grass and malty/biscuit present. The taste falls somewhat flat and far short of a top notch IPA. Malty sweetness predominates and an off taste I can't quite identify. Very late hop bitterness. Overall I didn't have high expectations and found this to be just_ok_.To be fair a fresher bottle or draft may be worth a second try.
