American Double / Imperial IPA |  8.40% ABV

Availability: Year-round

Notes/Commercial Description:
Our Double India Pale Ale is bigger in hop character and alcohol than our Extra Pale Ale. It is sure to please even the most discerning hop-head! Also known as Imperial IPA, this intensely hoppy, yet very drinkable beer lets the malty characteristics take a step back and allows the hops to really shine. Brewed with almost two (2) pounds of hops per barrel and left unfiltered, Six Row Double IPA showcases the citrusy and piney characteristics of the Columbus, Centennial, and Chinook hops.

Poured in a snifter. Nice orange color. Thin frothy head sticks to the glass well.

Beautiful aroma of citrus fruit and pine cones. Very juicy.

Flavor is citrusy as well with a grapefruit and lemon bite. Hops give a tangerine sweetness mixed with a pine-like bitterness. Sturdy malt backbone which is somewhat bready. Aftertaste of citrus fruits slowly fades.

Medium bodied with a good level of carbonation. Finishes crisp and semi-dry. Nice slick texture.

This is an excellent example of a DIPA. Great flavors, great balance and complexity. Highly recommended if you are in St Louis.

Serving type: on-tap

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 4

22 oz bomber poured into a shaker.

A - Clear light to medium amber with a massive, speckled white head that lasts. Carbonation appears light.

S - Very big grapefruit aroma plus... something else. Blue grape? Plum?

T - Crisp and brisk for a big double IPA. Serious hop aroma and flavor with a bready, doughy background. Finish has a little effervescense left with a good, solid bitterness. Finish is medium dry.

M - Medium body, medium carbonation. Slick oiliness present in a very small amount. Good, but not great.

O - A great, STL based double IPA. Seems to have jumped on the grapefruit bandwagon, but with an added twist. Must try if in STL.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: A nice honey-orange body with one-finger off-white head and decent lacing.

Smell: the presence of biscuit/caramel malt was prevalent, but the hops seemed to be lacking aromatically. Still it was a bit citrusy.

Taste: This IPA was stronger in the malt than many. The flavor was the sameas the nose, but also included grapefruit and orange peel, with a faint bit of pine.

Mouthfeel: A nice balance of carbonation in a medium-heavy body. Had a bit of an oily finish.

Drink: This was a stronger beer, but not taxing on the palate, despite being flavorful.

Overall, a good DIPA that I would like to drink again.

Serving type: on-tap

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

A- 22 oz bomber with no freshness date. Clear medium amber. Not much head retention but great lacing. A good looking beer.

S- Massive hop aroma. Pine and marigold totally dominate the nose. Almost overpowering but not quite. Very appropriate for a double.

T- Bitter and sweet at the same time. Great balance. The piney hops are prominent with a dry finish. There are also some herbal/mint notes about mid way.

M- Medium full body with some alcohol warmth in back.

O- This is a bold DIPA with a unique hop profile. An interesting and flavorful offering.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

A: In a snifter, medium golden, lasting head, good lace chunks.

S: Piney hops

T: Piney hops, some citrus. Strong malt backbone. Everything works very well.

M: Medium body, perfect carbonation.

D: Well, I'm not a hophead. This beer really hits a nice note with me, as it is a big IBU, big ABV beer, that has a such great balance, I can drink this everyday. Another fine effort!

Makes about a finger thick off white head, with decent retention. The body of this brew is copper in color with a mild haze. I'm surprised this brew isn't cloudy.

The aroma is balanced between the the arid and lemony hops and mild toffee sweetness.

Upfront the brew is grapefruit and pine, turns caramel sweet for a tick, then reverts back to the hops.

Feels lightly carbonated, coarse in the middle, and finishes thhe palate wet.

Overall I'm impressed with this beer. I was expecting a train wreck for some reason, but got what I'd say is a solid offering for the style.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured into a tulip glass from a 22oz bottle.

Im really happy they are bottling.

Pours a near perfect dark copper color with some nice orange edges and some slight haze. The head comes in at a nice 0.5 inches with some dense bubbles and some more medium sized ones. It is nice and white and slowly recedes to a nice ring around the glass with some scattered bubbles. There is some stickiness to it. (4.5)

Nice tropical fruit notes. GRapefruit and some pineapple notes with some more citrus notes underlying. Hints of mango and some papaya as well. THere is some nice biscuity malt notes and some slight grain. Very nice nose although it lacks a bit of intensity. The aroma is nice but needs a bit of a kick. (4.0)

Flavor starts off with some deep hop notes. Nice bitterness and some good malt and grain backbone. THe hop notes are slightly resinous and offer a bit of pine as well as the traditional more citrus notes. It is a pretty delicious brew with some slight malt carmel notes in there as well. The citrus notes offer some nice grapefruit rind and slight tangerine sweetness and citrus notes. Very nice brew. Mouthfeel is very good as well with some nice crisp carbonation and a nice sticky middle with a great dry bitter finish. (4.0)(4.0)

Overall this brew is great Six Row is a staple of the St. Louis beer scene. It is very delicious with great hop notes and some nice malt backbones. (4.5)
