Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: Vengeance526 on 10-11-2009

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.

nawleens makes good everything, and a good IPA. this one is dark gold and flavor sits nicely in the mouth. the afternotes are stimulating and show the complexity of the brew and the time they take to brew it. i love a lot of other IPAs more but this one smacks of Big Easy , easiness. Great pairing for crawdads or your favorite entoufee!

yall come back now , y'hear?

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.

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.
