Abita Turbo Dog

April 04, 2014

Abita is a Louisiana-based brewery. Their chief strengths are cool names and elegant label designs. You’ve probably tried their flagship brew Purple Haze at some point. If you order it at a bar, I hope it's served to you in an Abita glass. The design is sweet and worth ordering a Purple Haze just to get a look.

 

 

Purple Haze is an interesting beer because its filtered but still kind of hazy. That is the result of the brewers adding raspberries after filtering out the yeast. If you were to put Purple Haze in a box, the box would be Pilsner-esque. I'm a fan. You can drink it all night and still have room for whiskey. But overall it's pretty unremarkable. Definitely enjoyable to drink, preferably during the day time. It's ony 4.3% alcohol by volume but nobody's perfect. That's not the only reason why Purple Haze isn't perfect though.

 

I recently decided to give Abita's darkest brew, TurboDog, a try. Like I said a second ago, it's dark. And not just dark, it has a secret. There might even be some magic involved. Wait, no that's True Detective. Turbo Dog is a dark brown style ale and 5.6% ABV. It's not a complex flavor palette but everything that's there fits just right. If you want to give this bad boy a try you should probably hurry up before the weather gets too nice for dark brews. I prefer Turbo Dog to Purple Haze for a casual drinking environment. You don't want to party after drinking Turbo Dog. If you're anything like me, you'll want to go crawfishin' or gator hunting.

When Smigoversen can't find a bottle opener, he has a drinking problem.

Smigoversen (and occasionally Fraturday) perform "experiments" with alcohol. Every Friday they report their findings. Their observations are unreliable at best.
