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.

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...

Can. Pours a slightly hazy amber with a layer of off white head. Aroma and taste of hops and some spices. Not too shabby.

This is a really awesome IPA. Super easy to drink. Hoppy, bitter, with nice balance. Floral hops, citrus, everything you want in an IPA. Really good with pizza. Like insanely good. Definitely get this if you can it’s worth it for sure.

On tap. Hazy amber with white head. Smell is hoppy grass, citrus and pine. Taste is caramel malty with fruit, pine and grapefruit. Dry with high bitterness and medium carbonation.

TheAlum (5833) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - OCT 12, 2014
Draft on tap at (New Orleans, LA). Pours a nice deeper decent hazed amber hue, mellow glow with some orange, copper, frothy whitish head remains as a decent layer, good lacing as a nice frothy firm layer. Aromas are hoppy, citrus and gentle tropical fruit. Some florals, earth, toast, a firmer malt base beneath shows caramel, some more distinct sweetness, bread and toast. Initial mirrors this, firmer citrusy grapefruit, lemon. Some toast, toffee and caramel. Earth, middle moves into florals, earthy bitterness. Some gentle sweetness. Backend is a bit dry, bitter, a firm hopping with some decent odes to complex fruit flavors. The maltbill seems a bit sweet and aggressive to me, sweet caramel and butter into the backend. The hops do pop up front but overall Rebirth seems like a much better beer.

Prufrockstar (1092) - Seattle, Washington, USA - OCT 11, 2014
Can thanks to BVery last August. Almost didn’t rate this simply because I had a hard time articulating comments, but then I realized it was from Louisiana and new state tick trumps poor comments. Anyway, my notes: Amber/gold, white head; citrus, grass, sour hops. Can’t articulate, but this is a little sickly [present self: wtf does that mean?], almost weedy (like weeds by the side of the road). 3.1. Louisiana!

Can. Copper color. Moderately bitter hop juice flavor and some sweetness for balance. Solid beer.

GT2 (8690) - San Diego County, California, USA - SEP 6, 2014
[ 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.

Can shared by BVery - thanks! Amber pour with a nice white head. Big floral hoppy nose. Taste is good but not remarkable.

Can. Slightly murky orange pour with a white head. Mixed tropical fruit aroma with some pine. Medium palate, soft carbonation. Nice.

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.
