Worst DIPA ive ever had!!!!!!! Thats why Indiana's 100th ranked beer is as high as Louisiana #1. With that said everything from Great Raft Brewing in Shreveport destroys this beer! (180 characters)

Taste is citrus and floral hops with toffee, cake batter, and a touch of pine at the end. The bitterness is light compared to others in this style. However, the mouthfeel does become more bitter and dry as the beer warms. Overall I really enjoyed this one. Maybe not the hoppiest of double IPAs, but the flavor is interesting. (331 characters)

A - nice looking beer

S - piney, hoppy dominant

T - really nice combo of hops. Liked caramel-like taste under all the hoppiness. Really get that Columbus hops taste in there

M - medium feel, med carb

O - sorry, not enough time for thorough review (i will revisit and re-review when time permits) but Nola did it right on this one. Not my fave style, but this is nice (371 characters)

Had this one at the source while visiting New Orleans for Cantillon Zwanze Day! Served from tap into a NOLA shaker. Poured red-orange with a minimal off-white head. Maintained nice lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of sweet malt, citrus, earth, citrus hop, earth hop, and spice. The flavor was of sweet malt, citrus, citrus hop, spice, spicy hop, and earth. It had a light feel on the palate with high carbonation. Overall this was a good brew. The citrus note going on here was really nice and inviting. On top of this I really enjoyed the spicy notes going on when mixed with the citrus as it added a nice touch of balance while still being interesting. A pretty well done brew that I would love to have again in my own area. (746 characters)
