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.

3.45/5  rDev -7.3%
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.

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.

Had it fresh in the brewery.
Clear amber color with a thick head with short retention but leaving some laces.
Light aroma of papaya, American yeast and caramel malts.
Increasingly hoppy flavor but not aggressive flavor with notes of papaya, pineapple, spices and tutti-frutti. Quite dry and bitter aftertaste.
Medium body with mild carbonation.
Very well balanced IPA though a bit too neutral. I preferred their other brews.
