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.

Tap. Poured a bright amber with a medium white, foamy head. Very smooth on the tongue - less sharp than Saint Arnold’s Endevour. Great taste from an excellent hop profile. Smoothness continued to the finish with less of a bitter back end than other IPA’s.

16 ounce can pour at the Hard Rock in Biloxi. I really enjoyed this beer. Just the right amount of hoppiness and bitterness. Give this a try if you get a chance.

Terminus (3409) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - NOV 7, 2015
Tap at numerous locations in NOLA pours bright orange hue with a soapy small white head and good lacing very nice looking brew even in a plastic glass. Nose is hoppy bright citric grapefruit rind and some floral musty notes. Flavors are very nice robust citrus almost tropical lots of Tangerine pineapple and light passionfruit. Very sessionable ipa for long nights in NOLA. long finish of pineapple very little bitterness. Solid ipa

Had while in New Orleans waiting for my muffalada sandwich. Has some nice citrus grapefruit hop aroma. Medium bitterness. But very tasty and drinkable. Citrus hop throughout. Well done New Orleans! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12oz can. Cloudy copper hue with a finger-high beige foam. Aged citrus, raw sugar, lightly astringent graininess and a dry hopped piney bitterness. Medium to full body and medium+ carbonation.

From the draft the color is clear and orange, the aroma is bread and yeast, the flavor is sweet citrus and a good hop finish, the mouthfeel is thin. Very drinkable good with food.

MartinT (8736) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 19, 2015
My Bottom Line:
Orange rinds become grassy resins, as honeyed malt sugars ground this efficient IPA.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A sheet of foam covers the hazy amber shine.
-The prickly effervescence and relatively lean body make for good drinkability.
-This is a very professional job, albeit not a memorable one.
-Fruit character could be bolder, in my tastes.

On tap at The Ole Saint.

Aroma is spices, pine and really dank hops. The flavor is fruit, dank hops, spices, malts and a mix of slight heat and bitter in the finish

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.

Pours a clear dark gold. Has a faint sweet citrus hope aroma with some pine. A mixed taste of citrus hop, light fruit malts, pines, and some grains. Has a lingering dry grain and slightly bitter malt and hop aftertaste.
