Taste Test: Abita Hop-On

Abita Brewing’s new “juicy pale” Hop-On is their entry into the current (fading perhaps?) hazy, hoppy New England-style IPA beer craze. If, like me, you’re starting to feel a bit of NEIPA fatigue, Abita’s Hop-On might just be the beer that reminds you why this style became so popular in the first place.

Pouring cloudy sunbeam gold into the glass, Hop-On gives off tropical fruit aromas on the nose, pineapple and orange. At 6% ABV, it’s is brewed with Cascade, Citra and Ekuanot hops that pack a juicy, citrus punch. The beer finishes nice and clean. Cool can design to boot, evoking the legendary streetcars of New Orleans.

Thankfully, Abita introduced Hop-On while the NEIPA movement is still in full effect, and it’s not just another cursory addition to the category — they brewed a solid juicy IPA.

Hop-On is a new year-round release for Abita and will be available to the public on February 26th. Read more about it from Abita here.
