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.

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.
