4.5/5 rDev +23%
Abita Spring IPA has a very thick, frothy, off-white head, and a semi-clear, orange-golden appearance, with some haze, a few brown yeast specks, and a good amount of splotchy lacing left around the glass. The aroma is of sweet, grapefruit citrus and some pine oil, and the flavor is similar with lots of sugary sweetness and white bread. Mouthfeel is medium, soft, and slick, and Abita Spring IPA finishes dry, refreshing, and highly drinkable. Overall, this is a very tasty and enjoyable beer, and I hope beer fans can find it!

Poured into a delirium tremens tulip from bottle.
A- a clear golden tint with a steady stream of carbonation floating up from the center of the glass that forms a two finger foam head. Indicative of what an IPA should look like.
S- Piney with an undertone of citrus. Very pleasant as the Centennial and Amarillo hops really shine through. Almost as if someone mixed fresh cut grass with green pine needles.
T- The hops really coat the palate from the first to last sip. And they stay with you even in between each sip. Same as the smell with the pine making it to the forefront.
M- Light to medium carbonation. Pleasant and typical in a good sense.
O- I was very surprised at how much I liked Abita' s seasonal IPA. Can't wait to open a second one.

Appearance: 1 inch head, copper in color, high carbonation, clear
Smell: leafy hops, light citrus hops, and caramel
Taste: earthy/foresty hops, caramel, light citrus and pine hops.
Mouthfeel: sweetish start with bitterness towards the middle that is not as dominant towards the end, light bodied with high carbonation
Overall: This one blew me away. Not mouth puckeringly hop heavy for hop heads, but a brew with a lot of depth and complexity. Multiple layers of hops shine through. I prefer this a lot more than Jockamo IPA and would get this regularly if it were offered as more than a seasonal offering.

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.

Poured into a glass mug. The beer pours clear orange golden with a thick white head and lots of visible tiny bubbles. The head dissipates slowly, leaving some lacing on the side of the glass. The beer smells malty with some citrus and pine hop aromas. It's not as pungent as many West Coast IPAs, but still the hops shine well. The flavor is sweet and malty with some of those citrus and piney hops. There is some back end hop bitterness. It's certainly tasty. The body is medium with moderate carbonation. The finish is slightly dry and there's a nice aftertaste from the hops. This drinks surprisingly well. This is a very good beer. This is much better than Jockamo, but doesn't quite measure up to NOLA Hopitoulas (an IPA available in Louisiana). Still, this is a solid effort from Abita.
