12 oz bottle into pint glass. Pours a nice gold color with a decent off-white head. Initial impression is understated citrus hops, with a hint of pine and maybe caramel. Mouthfeel is medium, as is carbonation. Alcohol is not particularly well hidden. Finish is smooth and a little boozy. OK but not at all remarkable.

Beer is great, kind of a weird taste at first but the 8.0 ABV quickly makes up for it. Definitely worth a try and great for parties or just hanging around the house on a weekend, just dont plan to do much afterwards if you have more than two . haha

BOTTLE:

Warm in terms of booziness. Pale maltwise. Hop profile is generic...floral, a bit rindy.

Not real drinkable; its 8% ABV shows through.

Not great work from Abita.

A: crystal clear; deep gold in color; 1+ finger ivory head that receded to a wispy cap; very little lacing;

S: more grass and apple than anything else;

T: toast up front, mixing with apple from the middle through the finish; mild bitterness at the end;

M: medium bodied; moderate carbonation; lightly dry finish ; ABV is smooth and warming;

O: beer was relatively fresh; I was disappointed in the lack of any significant malt character;

Looks fine, gold with no head.
Smell is sweet and metallic.
Taste, straight up malt liquor.
Feel... Just like drinking an average beer, moderately carbonated.
I wasn't impressed, the alcohol content will get me through this ordeal.
