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.

Handbottled (thanks K.B.!). HAzy goldeny orange colour with a mediumsized foamy white head. Aroma is citrus fruits, grass, some spruce as well as mild honey and some sweet caramel maltyness. Flavour is rather fruity and floral hoppyness along with some crisp and sweet maltyness. Very nice balance for an IPA. Highly drinkable and refreshing.

Draught at Akkurat, Stockholm. Hazy amber, small head. Aroma of grapefruit peels. Mid sweet with medium body and clean, rounded mouthfeel. Lots of resiny grapefruit peels. Really bitter finish. Pretty good IPA.

Draft at the source. Crystal clear golden color, fluffy white head. Aroma of mixed fruits, tropical fruit. Taste is fruity, light pine background. Very nice.

Leighton (14006) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 25, 2013
Can at Sander’s place, NYC. Not crazy about this beer. Pours clear copper with a moderate, creamy-foamy head. Nose holds some dry caramel, earth pine and herbal hops. Light to medium sweet flavor, more dry, toasty caramel, herbal and lightly astringent bitterness. Medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Some toasty malts to finish, bit of dried caramel, elderly pine and herbs. So so. Might be a little old.

Oakes (13538) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 17, 2012
Draft. Amber and hazy. Earthy, slightly caramelly nose. Earthy hops, moderate bitterness and good balance. Was a go-to beer for me on my visit to NOLA.

Tap. Pours clear orange with a medium, frothy white head, medium retention with good lacing. Aroma is pear and apple esters, straw and biscuit malt with pine and resin hops. Flavor is heavy hops and bitterness, fruity esters and a malt backbone with a dry finish. Medium body and carbonation.

[ Keg ][ 16oz ][ Cochon Butchers NOLA ][ $6 ][ Conical Pint ][ 8.30.14 ]
>> Clear orange amber pour. Decent lace. Nose is sweet tea, raspberry tea, fresh orange, strawberry. Taste is full bodied, amber specialty malt added density, spicy hops, definitely in the East Coast amber IPA area. Thicker, heavy body. Harsher paper finish. Drinkable, but outdated.

Amber pour. Thick white head. The nose is decently hoppy. A little bit of caramel and a touch of pine and pepper. Fresh and slightly grassy. It’s a decent IPA really. Has a bit of light fruit and some tropical notes.
