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.

Was thrown one of these by a friend while I was on my balcony. Alright alright alright. This is beer that knows how to party. I would not want to lose this in 10 days. There may be a time to kill, but it ain't when you kicking one of these. I was on the phone with a wedding planner, having thirteen conversations about the same thing, when I realized I was on my tiptoes, a very clear case of failure to launch. So what did I do? I yell two for the money, this ain't fools gold! I took a seat in my favorite chair, wondering if there was a Lincoln lawyer who could track down my ghosts of girlfriends past. Maybe a true detective instead? I bet his name would be Bernie or Killer Joe.
I was also in Amistad

Golden body, hazy, topped by four billowing fingers of rocky off-white foam. Little drips of lace cats the glass.

Aroma of grassy hay, and a supporting current of citrus.

Sweet squishy malt beginning. Juicy fruit. Mild bitterness, not a definitive bite. Fruity finish.

Smooth, bubbly but not prickly medium mouthfeel.

Solid IPA, definitely one to seek out when in Louisianna.
