I was told this is the best beer made in Louisiana. Based on a sample size of 20, I cannot disagree.

Cloudy, dirty gold color with hints of brown. Superb blankets of lace from a moderate initial head.

I get an interesting perfume smell behind the traditional IPA aromas. Light citrus.

There's a fascinating earthy to burnt malt taste that is really intriguing. The hop isn't nearly as distinct but it is certainly more dominant. Spritzy with a decent body. The finish is bitter and lasting.
