I've had other beers from this brewery. Never had STLIPA but the was happy to see it on tap at my hotel. Great color in the glass -- beautiful copper. Good nose. Complex flavor due to the hop bill. Strong. Good mouth feel. Nice finish. Excellent Double IPA. Not as much alcohol taste as you'd expect from such a high gravity beer. Recommended.

4.26/5  rDev +9.5%

Appearance: Arrives with an impresssive head that perches on the hazy amber liquid; very nice lacing action

Smell: Citrusy, with tangerine and grapefruit tones; biscuity malts underneath

Taste: The citrusy elements hit the tastebuds right away, bringing both grapefruit and tangerine flavors with the biscuity malts adding some depth underneath

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation

Overall: A very nice DIPA which showcases the hops without a big malt distraction
