COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This beer is the culmination of over 30 years of brewing by our Brewmaster, Peter ‘Hopzilla’ Caddoo. Created at our Tchoupitoulas Street brewery, our India Pale Ale was hand crafted with six malts and six hops. This big, beautiful beer is dry hopped with Amarillo and Simcoe hops to accentuate aromas of citrus and pine. Grab a Hopitoulas and taste the passion and dedication that has gone into this brew.

16 ounce can. Pours an amber orange color. Moderate foamy beige head. Big citrusy pine needle nose. Flavor offers more pine and citrus, but not overdone. Bittersweet toasted malt and grapefruit peel. Smooth as IPA’s go. Nice alternative to the standard fare around town in the Big Easy.

Panzuriel (1823) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - APR 30, 2016
Location: Pint on tap at Felix’s Oyster House Appearance: Lighter amber slightly hazy. Big fluffy white head Nose: Mostly lightly roasted malt. Slight bitter hops. Taste: lightly sweet malt on the front. Finishes with good bitters Body: lighter and fluid Parting thoughts: I had no idea this was an IPA, until after I drank it. I was assuming it was a pilsner or some English style bitter. Not a typical IPA at all. So, other than that, it was underwhelming and forgettable.

drjoeng (738) - SINGAPORE - APR 20, 2016
IPA Tapped out amber. 12ºSRM. Nose is beery, maybe a bit of pine on second approach. Nose has a very beery character, way too much and without the herbaceous or citrus aromas one might expect of an IPA. Mouthfeel is thin soapy. Palate has sweet toasty malty flavors of graham cracker, honey and maybe taffy or candy. Hops are bitter with pine, grass and in the front part of the palate orange peel which then fades into a pronounced bitter of pine, pine sap and a bit of resinous sticky finish. Finish is medium with bitter and herbaceous flavors on the back palate. It does finish clean. Barely makes it to faves, but It did make enough of a positive impression with the full malt body, and the nice hop balance to make it. Probably the weirdest IPA to make it to the list. Really almost like an aggressively hopped lager, like an IPL. Goes on Favorites List!

Pours a medium golden amber color. Aromas of citrus and fruit. Flavor is a big hop presence with subtle tastes of fruit and vegetables, then more hops.

Pilsener like with Some hop aroma and taste. Not really what you expect of an ipa.

Berard (606) - Salem, New Hampshire, USA - FEB 8, 2016
Draft. Pours murky yellow orange with thin white head that resides along the glass rim. Dull hop aroma over medium carbonation. It's mildly hoppy with a wheat zest backbone. Really not my thing. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

glennmastrange (2621) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - JAN 18, 2016
Can. Moderate roasted grain for the malt, moderate pine and orange rind for the hops, light soap for the yeast, with light dried fruit in the background. Head is average size, frothy, white with excellent lacing and is mostly lasting. Color is sparkling clear light amber/orange. Flavor starts slightly sweet and lightly acidic, then finishes lightly acidic and moderately bitter. Palate is medium, slick with a soft to lively carbonation. A well balanced and easy drinking IPA

Deliciously smooth ipa! Lovely golden pour w/ a white head & outstanding lacing. The aroma is primarily soft citrus notes. The taste is slightly bitter but nicely balanced by the citrusy flavors. It is pleasant on the palate & overall a very good ipa!
