So there is a rumor that I heard yesterday that Abita Red Ale will no longer be produced by Abita and they will instead be brewing a "Spring IPA". There are a lot of breweries that brew a "Spring IPA". I keep using quotations because it's not really a style of beer and I don't know the name of the beer Abita is releasing. I was told "Spring IPA." Most "Spring IPAs" are categorized as American IPAs. If this beer is anything like similar beers I have had in the past with the same description I anticipate this brew being very floral with a nice citrus note.
I reached out to Abita and no one would confirm or deny my rumors. I did get information from a source however that states my information is 100% accurate.
Hopefully someone from Abita will contact me so I can get a confirmation from them. Either way I feel this is great news.
What do you think? Were you a fan of the Red Ale? You looking forward to this new beer? Let me know what you think.
