Abita Wrought Iron IPA

This 6.9% ABV India Pale Ale is from the Abita Brewing Company of Abita Springs, Louisiana. It uses Apollo, Equinox, and Mosaic hops.

The beer pours a lightly hazy apricot in color. There is a tall, very thick, foamy head of white. The aroma is oranges, ripe melons, mango skins, sweet and ripe and full. The taste follows the aromas, hitting all of the same notes. The finish is dry, pithy, and moderately bitter. The beer drinks smooth with a subtle carbonation. This won't blow you away, but it makes for a nice and drinkable IPA.
