Notes/Commercial Description:
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.

look: 3.75 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 3 | overall: 2

Big bottle, 16 oz or so. No indication of how old this is.

A: Amber body, no haze to it. Nice head and decent retention.

S: Malt, caramel, sugar. No hop profile. Not a good start.

T: Malt bomb. No hop bitterness at all. Very unbalanced.

M: Good carbonation. Mouthfeel is fine.

O: I'm always cautious of buying undated bottles, but this is local and from a popular beer store. But I got burned. Tired of wasting my money on this crap. Date your bottles!

3.34/5  rDev -13.9%
look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.25

Pours a golden amber with a tall thick head.

Smells of lemony citrus, flowers, fruity yeast (banana?), and a buttery character that reminds me of an ESB.

Taste is spicy floral hops, again that buttery ESB character. Slightly unusual but pretty good.

Lots of carbonation, doesn't feel like a DIPA but nice and drinkable.

Pretty good beer, not nearly as hoppy as you'd expect for a DIPA but nice and easy to drink.

6.7/10

3.45/5  rDev -11.1%
look: 4 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

A- very hazy pale orange with moderate head and fairly impressive lacing. Aggressive carbonation shows in the glass.

S- kind of boring, light generic hops smell and not much else. Worrisome on the smell--might be stale, but I doubt it from this bottle shop. If there's a date code, I can't find it.

T- much better on the taste, so I doubt it's stale. Flavor of fresh grapefruit hops dominates with light resin flavors. Bitterness lingers nicely. Very light on the malts, like a west coast IPA. Not very yeasty at all.

M- as I mentioned in the appearance section, heavy carbonation. Not overdone, just on the high side--I like that for an IPA. Fairly light body.

Overall a good beer, and not exactly the style I was expecting. A nice one to have opened at 3 pm. Recommended for day drinking, spicy food, and the World Cup.
