BEER INFO

Brewed by:
New Orleans Lager & Ale Brewing Company (NOLA)
Louisiana, United States
nolabrewing.com

Style: American IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.00%

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.

One of my all-time fav Southern breweries. Hopitoulas, pronounced hop-a-choo-las, after a street in NOLA. This is a super good West Coast style India Pale Ale that combines six malts and six hops with additional dry hopping for three weeks. Hints of pine and citrus with a powerful, yet balanced hoppy flavor.

This came across as pure dawn liquid soap to my palate. Could not make it past one sip.
