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.

A - Dark amber pour with a crème colored foam that is high and clingy. Minimal lacing, and slight carbonation.

S - Some bready yeast notes, an earthy hop aroma, and some lemongrass hit the nose. This smells like a rustic IPA.

T - Some citrus notes in the initial sip. There is some mild malt flavors before the finish. The tongue gets hit with a raspy bitterness that compliments this beer.

M - Easy drinking IPA. This is preferred for someone who likes an earthy feel to the style.

O - First try from NOLA and this is a brewery I'd look to try again. A solid offering with a distinctive twist.
