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: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

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

Received as extra by Stringer_Bell- thanks! Appears a deep gold with decent clarity, frothy 2 finger head the retains nicely and leaves loads of splotchy lacing. The aroma presents light cirtusy waves of lemon pairs with grass and bread, notes of caramel come next with some crackery dryness at the end. The taste has a nice fruity hop character up front that presents some sweetness followed by a decent bit of bitterness. Finish is floral and grassy with decent finishing bitterness. Mouthfeel is light and well carbonated. Overall, this IPA is sneaky, definitely drinks like a single IPA, but it packs a deceptive punch of alcohol. Overall very tasty and worth a try.
