I liked the Abita Spring IPA. The beer poured a hazy yellow with white head that left some lacing. The scent was bitter in nature with citrus being present. The taste was bitter but came off the pallet clean. There was hints of grapefruit present. The mouthfeel was medium in body with smooth carbonation. Overall....yeah....I'd try it again.

Aroma is citrus, fruit and graham crackers/teddy grahams. The flavor is citrus, fruit, malts, a hint of teddy grahams and a mix of hops and slight spice/heat in the finish. A little old, still pretty decent

Not my favorite IPA. Too bitter. I'd drink it if it was there but I wouldn't seek it out.

Crisp. Not too hoppy. Definitely not too malty.
