Classic looking IPA pour, with an amber colored body displaying some haziness. The carbonation was brisk and formed a two finger thick head. The aroma was of some pleasantly floral hops but a little on the lighter side. The hops were of relatively light bitterness, revealing a tart citric taste upon first sip. The beer turned spicy mid palette, and finished with some orange peel flavor. The malt backbone was light, and simple. It was mid summer when I purchased this, because the sales representative in the shop I went too was passing out free themed pint glasses to those that bough any Abita six packs. Next year I will try to grab it when fresher, because this beer is better than what I thought it was going to be.
