American IPA |  6.00% ABV

Availability: Year-round

Notes/Commercial Description:
This 6.0% ABV ale is a West Coast style India Pale Ale that combines 6 malts and 6 hops with additional dry hopping for three weeks. It takes about a month and a half to make each batch and we think it is worth the wait. Hints of pine and citrus with a powerful, yet balanced hoppy flavor, Hopitoulas packs a punch that you won’t forget.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

Poured from a 16 oz. can. Has a dark golden color with a 1/23 inch head. Smell is fruity, floral hops. Taste is not quite what I expect from the style. Mild hops, fruits, very mild bitterness. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a decent beer, but didn't quite satisfy my hunger for hops.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Semi-cloudy amber, with some slight sediment. Maybe an older can? Big, thick head of bone-white carbonation, and a solid tree-line of lace.

Aroma: Subtle floral and pine hops. Not bad.

Flavor: Tangy, bitter, acidic hops. Very spiky and incisive on the palate, with more pine and bitter citrus grapefruit hops dominating the malt backbone.

Not a bad IPA, just not a great one.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

16oz can with an indiscernible canned on date on the bottom. Poured into a pint glass.

Appearance: Pours a hazy copper with 1/2 finger of head

Smell: Fruity and herbal hop aroma with some citrus

Taste: Hop flavor is bright in tone with some herbal notes

Mouthfeel: Medium with a sticky/resin feel in the finish

Overall: I wish I could know how fresh this is, but for what its worth, a solid IPA.
