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.

I was happy to see this at several places during my latest visit to the Big Easy. The local beer scene seems to be really improving!

I reviewed this one at the Long Bar and it was my first beer of the evening.

Served in a std pint, the beer is a nice bronze with a beige head. It has a bit of chill haze.

It has an aroma of citrus, grains and spice.

It reminds me more of an English style IPA than an American IPA. It has nicely modulated citrus-based bitterness. There are lots of caramel malts for balance with floral and wood notes in the finsih.

The mouth is solid and a bit slick. I think this a pretty good session IPA.

Body is clear gold with a moderate head leaving some lacing.
Smells of malt and citrus hops.
taste follows the nose, mildly sweet malt with grapefruit rind hops. Lightly bitter finish.
Body is light, refreshingly crisp carbonation, almost creamy.

This is a very drinkable IPA at 6.5%, with plenty of flavor.
