Served on-tap in a Bells tulip at Global Brew in O'Fallon, IL. Mostly clear body, light amber with orange hues. About a one-finger white head and decent lacing.
Nice aroma, leaning on the sweet side. Sweet citrus notes up front - orange and tangerine, with some light tropical notes following. A bit of bready malt aroma to finish off the nose.
Very tasty flavor. Similar to the aroma, but just a notch up on the bitter hop scale. The malt leans more toward a caramel taste, but the overall blend of flavors works well.
Medium thickness in the mouth feel and no real notice of the alcohol. I like this very much and will definitely be seeking it out in bottle format.

The STLIPA was a decent beer from Chestnut. The beer poured a hazy orange with white head that did not leave a lace. The scent was of fresh hops with slight citrus lean. The taste was bolstered by a sweet malt base that had bitter hops present throughout. The beer reminded me more of an English style than west coast style. The mouthfeel is medium in body with good carbonation. Overall the beer is good....not the best IPA I've ever had but certainly worth a try.

Pours a chill hazed amber with a pinky of eggshell colored head. Never really clears, great lacing & good head retention
S: Faint pineapple, some breadyness, then grapefruit & passion fruit
T: Breadyness, faint grapefruit, pears & lemon zest up front. Grapefruit pith, pineyness, dryness, a little bit of peach & pears as this warms. Finishes with a big grapefruit pop & some pineapple & dryness & a little bit of pear
MF: Medium bodied, delicate carbonation, good balance
Could easily pass as an AIPA, very drinkable, ABV is well hidden

Murky and cloudy yellowish-orang body with an aggressive white head. No lacing it good head retention.
Real nice tropical aromatics of mango and pineapple and light floral perfume.
Tropical fruit flavors, mostly mango. Bready malt and way too boozy, especially for 8.5%. It's a little harsh overall.
Mouthfeel is medium with good carbonation. It's somewhat soft.
This has good aromatics and flavor but is a bit rough and boozy.

Poured on draft in St Louis while watching the USA World Cup match.
A: Hazy golden amber with soapy one finger off white head that left some sticky lacing.
S: Pine resin, grapefruit, and some faint pineapple.
T: Light citrus, honey, orange peel, and some bready malts.
M: Full bodied but not heavy leaving some hop oils on the tongue.
O: Good basic DIPA. I would grab a pint whenever I'm in the area.
