3.75/5  rDev +2.5%

[Appearance: 4.0] The result of the pour is a honey-like opaque dark orange brew topped by a very white head that begins at one finger, settles only slowly, and ends the session with a cap of foam that deposits stringy lace on the glass.
[Aroma: 3.5] The aroma presents some earth with underlying grains and plenty of leaf with a pithy edge to it. Some candied sweetness rides with the bitterness.
[Flavor: 3.75] Hops bitterness is deeper and more pronounced, with a lot more perfume and leaf along with herbal notes to it. It's still accompanied by sweetness, this time more distinctly caramel, and some citrus fruits contributing as much peel and zest as anything. Grains and acidity reach into the finish, with a dryness hitting mid-way and lingering long.
[Mouthfeel: 4.25] This has the big brightness and zing of an IPA with lots of texture, crisp and biting but with lots of fluffy creaminess rolling on the palate. It works with a certain acidity and dryness, which might otherwise clash.

Classic looking IPA pour, with an amber colored body displaying some haziness. The carbonation was brisk and formed a two finger thick head. The aroma was of some pleasantly floral hops but a little on the lighter side. The hops were of relatively light bitterness, revealing a tart citric taste upon first sip. The beer turned spicy mid palette, and finished with some orange peel flavor. The malt backbone was light, and simple. It was mid summer when I purchased this, because the sales representative in the shop I went too was passing out free themed pint glasses to those that bough any Abita six packs. Next year I will try to grab it when fresher, because this beer is better than what I thought it was going to be.
