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.

Thanks to Nick fro bringing back this growler. Amber pour with a frothy white head. Aroma of sweet caramel malts, nuttiness and floral piney hops. Sweet flavor throughout with a touch of piney hops coming through on the end. Not bad just a little under done.

UPDATED: FEB 20, 2013 Pours a golden orange on tap with thin white head and light lacing. Aroma of pine and citrus from the hops, with a hint of pale and caramel malts. Taste follows, with a clean and crisp finish. Good stuff when its fresh, much worse out of the can than on tap.

16oz can. This was an awesome IPA. Perfect after a long day walking around New Orleans. Very hoppy and crisp with nice floral, citrus and pine flavors.

Tap on Bourbon Street. Hazy dull deep amber-tan-brown. Big foamy off-white head. Much more enjoyable than their Blonde or Wheat, this is a respectable medium to full bodied IPA. Middle of the road hop wise, pretty classic orange-pine hop taste. Standard but enjoyable.

Two days in a row of over 10 beer reviews… my creative wordsmithing has severely diminished. This beer has a bright, reddish orange color and a dense white head. Its aroma is nice and smooth, but with a somewhat jagged edge to it that’s slightly citrusy and, honestly, almost plastic-like. Mostly, though, it smells of wet hops and fermented grains, sweet and delicious. Its flavor is nice as well. It has a great body that’s heavy enough to support the beer’s robust hops and moderate caramel malts. This is a great-balanced beer.

We had this beer at the 2013 Tops of the Hops in Biloxi, MS. It was not for me. Too bug spray-ish.

16oz can via UD in trade. Big golden body with similar growing oily head. A lucious nose of hops and malts that does not seem to fade. Spectacularly balanced. Hops and malts appear continuously and show their stuff like runway models from VS. Its like a small parade of separate hops and malts in my mouth. Yum...

Pailhead (5024) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - JAN 12, 2013
Bottle: The aroma consists of mango, caramel, toffee, and stale citrus hops. It pours a transparent golden-orange with a small soapy white film for a head. The flavor starts with mango, orange, and caramel. The finish has oxidation and stale grapefruit hops. It’s light-medium bodied with mild carbonation.

UDBeernut (1822) - Moving to Jax, Florida, USA - JAN 8, 2013
can via Ldhughes3. Pours golden amber with foamy cream colored head. Head has great retention and leaves a curious coating of lacing. Nose of yeast, malt, and pine. Taste startes with a solid grapefruit and pine punch washed over buy malt and light caramel. Ample bitterness, though it leaves me yearning for more. Alchohol dances at the finishes. Body is a tad thin.

Picked this one up during the AHA conference in New Orleans on a whim. Surprisingly good! Deep orange color, crisp and bright with a somewhat light mouthfeel, lots of pine and resin with a citrus sweetness. Pretty aggressive.
