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.

Draught at The Chimes, Baton Rouge, LA.
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.

bhiner41 (182) - La Grange, Illinois, USA - JUN 21, 2013
Nice IPA, drunks more like an imperial or double IPA. Definite citrus notes sweet finish, amber color and very little head. ---bhiner41 Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Can. Pours copper with a medium white head. Aroma of citrus and pine hops. Medium body with piney hops upfront balanced nicely by a malt backbone and a light bitter finish.

airrick2003 (517) - Louisiana, USA - MAY 25, 2013
Appearance: very clear rich gold color, has a moderately thick and dense off white head Aroma: grain, some fruit, faint Taste: bitterness, grass, pine, can get the malt flavor if you concentrate Palate: moderate c02, leaves a pretty strong bitter aftertaste Overall: this is a good ipa, could use a bit more of the hop flavors besides just the bitterness ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

From tap at brewery. Pours a clear amber color with small head. Aroma was fruity and citrus hops with a sweet backing. Taste follows. Nice offering.
