I have been drinking Abita on trips to New Orleans for about a decade now. I always prefer to drink local if I can find a decent beer and Abita by far made the best local beer (which wasn't saying much).
This beer really stood out from the rest. It was very nicely balanced between the hops, yeast and malt. Refreshing and flavorful.
Being from California, it was nice to have access to a balanced IPA again. While I love the extreme IPA's that area all around, this is more of an every day IPA.

Poured into a large (16 oz?) Crown Valley Brewing snifter-like glass.
appearance - 3.5/5 - has a kind of hazy or simply "not translucent" orange color. No head at all, but then I swirled the glass and it came out nicely, so maybe I could have poured it differently to begin with. Nice lacing.
smell - 4.5/5 - sweet citrusy aroma dominates and invites, but subdued due to low fridge temperatures.
taste - 5/5- very citrus/pine hoppy.. spicy, but not too much and well balanced by complex malt flavors. Also a slight grapefruit aftertaste develops. I'm not a big fan of grapefruit, but it's at just the right level and mix with the other flavors to be right on for me.
mouthfeel - 4.5/5 - Good carbonation level provides a refreshing balance to the intenese hops. Though the hops are strong, they don't linger for too long, so you can drink a couple before "burn out" even thinks of asserting itself.
overall - 5/5 - Taste is one driving force behind this rating, but the fact that it is just 6.5% means I can enjoy more of them than similar tasting but much higher gravity IPAs.

A - Pours one fingers worth of off-white head that settles fairly quickly, but leaves some good lacing. The beer is a clear amber color.
S - Very fruity-like aroma with citrus and grapefruit sticking out the most. There's also that hops smell sprinkled throughout. Very good aroma.
M - Light-Medium bodied, with a good amount of carbonation.
T - Some sweet malt up front followed by grapefruit, the hops and a subtle citrus flavor competing with the hops, but ultimately the hops takes over. It's slightly bitter after swallowed. It begs to be drank again.
Absolutely excellent IPA, deffinetly my new favorite. Has a great aroma and complex taste. It goes down very easy and would make a great session beer.

Poured out of a 12 oz. bottle with a mardi gras indian on the logo. Blue Cap 2008 date.
Apperance - Pours a redish orange with a half finger dark white head. Lite lacing against the glass as you tilt.
Smell - Hops, a piney orange, and a smooth maltness in the aroma.
Taste & Mouthfeel - Citrusy with a touch of orange. The hops definitely come through, with a smooth maltiness in the middle. Bitter on the back of the tounge in the end.
Drinkability - Wasn't expecting much as most of Abita's beers are average, but this one was damn good. My Favoite Abita brew yet. I could pound this one back all night long. Will make sure to keep this in my fridge as an everyday session beer.

Presentation- this was a purchasesd 6 pack from Lowe's Foods in Myrtle Beach, SC on 4/21/09.
Appearance- very pleasantly surprised in both color and consistancy. Abita beers are normally light weight. This is not.
Smell- Pronounced hop aroma and some light malt involved..very inviting nosefeel.
Taste- This is the closest IPA to Bell's Two Hearted that I have tasted yet. The Two Hearted has a floral springlike taste that is unlike any IPA I've ever had until I've tasted this one. I love the hop/malt character of this beer. I will definately buy this one whenever I can find it...especially since I can't get Bell's in the Low Country!
Notes- Much love and respect to to Abita for the care and skill they have put into this beer. I bought the last 6er on a whim and SO glad I did. Seek this one out. You won't be sorry.

This Poured a faded copper color with light tan head. It smelled like all sorts of hops including pine, floral, and copper, along with some sweet honey malt. It tasted just like it smelled, with a nice blend of hops and honey sweetness, with a bit of wheat and fresh grassy flavors. It was moderately thick with a bit of carbonation, and had a bitter lasting aftertaste. Overall this was much more flavorful and rewarding than Abita's Restoration. It had a great body with delicious and clean flavor that's balanced and quite drinkable.

This is one of my favorite IPA's (since I am not an over the top hops kinda girl). It has a nice amber color with the perfect amount of carbination. I love the slightly floral aroma/flavor that comes through. It's one of the more unique tasting IPA's I've had!

One of the better ipas I've had. Pours a honey color with a pencil thin head and little carbonation. Smells of piney hops and malt sweetness. Very cinnamony as well. One of the sweeter smelling ipas I've had. Very nice. Taste is of piney hops with a malt and cinnomon finish.
