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.

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.

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.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

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.
