4.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
The IPA style is a new addition to the New Orleans area microbrewery scene. Many New Orleanians haven’t yet adjusted to this style of beer. But, I love it. Hoppy and full of flavor, just how an IPA should be. Sharp bite and yet clean finish, with an amber/orange body. For you Yanks, the name is derived from the street "Tchopitoulas" where the brewery is located.

Abslolutley fabulous. Perfect CO2. Fair aroma. Hop flavor citrus, grapefruit, and wondefull peppery overtones. Great clear brew and good clean hoppy finish.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Serving Type was a growler purchased by my wife in New Orleans at Avenue Pub and brought to me here in Florida.
Appearance- The beer pours an amber gold color with a nice head which disapates quickly. A sticky, spider web like lacing was present.
Smell- The aroma was a bit lacking. Nice subtle hints of piney hops. Could have been because it was poured from a growler.
Taste- HUGE hops flavors. The bitterness attacks my tongue and doesn’t let go. I get a nice slight hint of citrus in the front that lets go into HOPS!
Mouthfeel- Medium body with nice carbonation(even after being in a growler).
Drinkability- Fantastic and very drinkable IPA. This one is on the upper end of IPAs in terms of its hoppiness. Too bad it won’t be year round.

This beer is absolutely fantastic; perhaps the best IPA I have ever had. Right up there with Stone’s wonderful IPA. It is hoppy to the extreme, but does not overwhelm you, leaving a nice, fruity taste in your mouth that is refreshing and energizing. One must savor this beer. Drink it slowly. The flavor is complex, and full, not as biting as others. It seems to blanket your mouth, rather than fill your jaw and throat. Very fruity and hoppy. This beer in marvelous. Though very expensive (it runs between $5-$8 a pint!), it is well worth the extra dollar or two.

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.

A full lightly tanned head. Nice piney and fruity aroma. It has a lively palate, and a great taste. I love Amarillo and Simcoe hops, and Hopitoulas delivers.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
This is by far the best offering from the guys at NOLA so far. Pours a clear light copper with a good white head and nice lacing. Very piney aroma with some citrus. Very strong flavor with good malt and the typical IPA hop finish, but still very smooth and drinkable. A very good IPA, and I hope it soon is available beyond the New Orleans area.

Poured slightly hazy with a nice frothy head. Great lacing too. Tastes of pine, slightly peppery. Good IPA, not over citrusy, but not European. Drinks mid-upper carbonation. Really Nice.

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.

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...
