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.

Strykzone (4965) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - DEC 4, 2013
Received this in a trade with GreatDane1632. It is a 16 ounce can and the beer pours deep golden and is lightly hazed. An almost white head sits atop. I smell hops to begin with and they are citrus and tropical. Caramel and pale malts. First sip brings a nice big hop flourish. Some nice fruit effects that are grapefruit, softer citrus, and tropical. At 53 degrees F I began to taste some pine and it works well with the fruits. The malts are complex and tasty. This is a nice IPA. It is complex and every one of the complexities is a classic.

DuffMan (6798) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 20, 2013
On tap here and there throughout New Orleans, but I actually took my notes while having this from a tall can at Cibugnu. Deep orange, thickly lacing golden head. Light pine and grapefruit hops marginally outplay the sweet caramel malts here, ending with moderate bitterness. A sessionable tasty IPA.

Taster at the brewery. Pours clear copper with a thin white head and lots of lacing. Tastes like hops and peach, light pine and grapefruit. Light body and low carbonation. Smells like very mild peach, citrus, and malt.

djd07 (3643) - Houston, Texas, USA - OCT 18, 2013
On tap at Redfish Grill on Bourbon. Pours a cloudy amber with thick creamy white head that lasts awhile leaving sticky lacing. The aroma is a bready malt and light floral hop. Medium mouthfeel with bitter hop bite and grapefruit with lingering bitter finish. Very good.

Clear deep golden colour with a small white head. Mild sweet hops and mild maltiness in a mild aroma. Mild sweet hops, some dryness and mild bitterness in the flavour. Very easy. Some dark hops in the aftertaste.

This is pretty alright with lemon and pine hops with a little bit of grapefruit and grainy finish. I could drink these if I didnt have good beer around.
