NOLA Brewing Hopitoulas

While out to dinner in New Orleans at Me’lange, I ordered a glass of NOLA Brewing Hopitoulas. The beer pours an orange-tinted gold color with a frothy white head that leaves a lacing on the glass. The aroma consists of orange, tangerine, lemon, and pepper. The taste is bitter and has nice citrus presence including tangerine, orange, lemon, and grapefruit. A peppery finish with a bite on the back of the throat rounds out the beer and works well with the caramel and toffee backbone. The alcohol content is 6.0% ABV. This was quite a delicious IPA with a strong west coast feel to it. A wide variety of citrus flavors made it extremely enjoyable and it was easy to drink.
