Second from my Abita party pack. Poured into a pint glass. Golden color, sticky head but recedes quickly. Hoppy smell and taste. Also notes of pune and citrus in flavor and aroma. Much more like an ipa then abitas jockamo "ipa" and definatly better than it. Overall decent but not as good as others ive had.

12 oz bottle, pint glass

A – Medium gold with an inch of white foam collar, moderate retention. Mild haziness.

S – Tropical fruit, guava and papaya. Biscuit malt with a light honey impression. A touch of vanilla.

T – Guava and papaya, and also pineapple juice. Light biscuit malt, maybe some light brown sugar. A mild hop bite.

M – Medium-high carbonation, medium body. On the sudsy side. Light residual sweetness, with enough bitterness to balance.

O – Some interesting things happening here, but not sure they meld into a better whole.
