A friend of mine said all that needs to be said about this brew: Man that ipa tasted like a spring meadow full of wild flowers.

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.

Truly surprised. A nice spring (pun intended) grassy citrusy taste. Very evenly hopped, smooth but you can taste the hops. Good from first drink to last. I got this in a pick 6 and will buy this where I find it.
