Abita Select Double IPA

On tap at Taco Mac, Douglasville, GA, USA. Part of the Abita Select series that we now see in Atlanta.
Pour gives a golden body with a touch of chill-haze and some significant head,. The head retention is good and he lace that it produces is not insignificant. Good looking, but for some reason reminds me of a nitro pour – odd.
Sweet nose and tastes which reflect the style pretty well. Plenty of sweetness to back up the aggressive hops, this beer is surprisingly simple but good. Large hop presence in the finish and it provokes some nice burping – a good sign for me.
A little light in the mouth, but still performs well overall.
Definitely one of the best Abita offerings that I have had over the years so in the that respect it’s good. As for an entry into the top echelon of American DIPA’;s it still has some way to go but nevertheless kudos to Abita for continuing to work at this.
