We pronounce it “sta-leep-ah”; you pronounce it how you like. STLIPA, which is the acronym for St. Louis India Pale Ale, is actually a DIPA (Double or Imperial IPA, double the stats of a traditional IPA). We hope it’s a “sleepe” that you’ll include in your set of favorite DIPA’s from one of the best beer cities in the world St. Louis. Hops- Sterling, Cascade, Mt. Hood, Willamette, Chinook.

A really well executed DIPA that doesnt beat you over the head with hops. There is a very nice malt and hop balance here, with a smoothness you often dont get from a DIPA.

Would purchase and drink again.

I'd like to give this a higher score and I might in the future but it was a little flat and I didn't have a date on the bottle to help determine its freshness.

Feels really good. This and Logboat IPA are my favorite Mo beers. These guys also make the best Brown I have maybe ever had.

Verry malty almost hides the hops absolutely no bitterness

Appearance: Pours a semi-cloudy amber, with a huge frothy head. Heavy and beautiful lacing.

Aroma: Floral, pine, and grapefruit hop perfumes. Very nice indeed.

Taste: Heavy on the hops, for sure, yet nicely balanced. The hops usher in a flurry of tropical, pine, and citrus notes while the malts temper it to a subtle, well-rounded level. An IPA to be proud of, this one hits the spot.
