Susan picked up a 12-pack sampler of Abita from World Market. This sample pack differs from others, because it has two of six different offerings. So lots of great options to choose from, and I've only had one or two of them before.
This IPA is very good. It has a fantastic balance of hoppyness and malts. Neither of which overpowers the other, but they do have their own distinct moments. The hops hit up front with great aroma and a fresh bite in the mouth. Then the malts take over with a smooth body and a bitter free finish.
A very nice offering from Abita, yet again.
