Abita Big Easy IPA

Abita Brewing Company, Abita Springs, LA

The hop flavor is big, but like life in New Orleans, we’re taking it easy.  Brewed with lemon peels and dry hopped with Cascade, Amarillo, Centennial, and Simcoe for a hoppy aroma of citrus, fruit, and pine.  Easy to drink and just right for long hot days, steamy nights, parades, or a day on the river with friends.

4.5% ABV

Abita’s Big Easy IPA is very fruity on the nose – and the palate!  We can’t taste any bittering hops.  It seems the varieties of hops were just used for flavoring and not bittering.  It is very light, but not much to this brew.  Very golden in color.  It is a typical Abita beer.

Would we have it again?  We’d prefer one of Abita’s other offerings.
