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.

coldbrewky (1493) - Hippetown East, New York, USA - JAN 20, 2013
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...

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.

jflopsu (816) - New Jersey, USA - JUN 18, 2015
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.

bytemesis (4470) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - JUN 1, 2015
Tap. Pours clear amber, small off white head, decent lacing. Aroma is very melon, honey dew, mountain dew - that green one. Flavor really tastes like an IPA hoped with that green mountain dew. Weird. Light plus sweet, light bitter. Light body, lingering bitterness.

Pours a color very similar to the Rebirth. Aroma is very nice and subtle. Lots of Pine, citrus, and malt. Tastes of bread, hay, lemon, orange, grapefruit, Christmas trees. Very well balanced and drinkable.

S_Side_Smitty (578) - Lakeland, Florida, USA - MAR 2, 2015
Pours a light amber color with a huge white head. Aroma is sweet, light on the hops, and actually kind of grainy. Taste is a nice blend of light malts and hops - really balanced. The mid gets hoppier (hard to pinpoint an exact hop flavor) and finishes with a medium bitterness that lingers. I like this company!
