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.

3.88/5  rDev -0.5%

Poured on draft in St Louis while watching the USA World Cup match.

A: Hazy golden amber with soapy one finger off white head that left some sticky lacing.

S: Pine resin, grapefruit, and some faint pineapple.

T: Light citrus, honey, orange peel, and some bready malts.

M: Full bodied but not heavy leaving some hop oils on the tongue.

O: Good basic DIPA. I would grab a pint whenever I'm in the area.

4/5  rDev +2.6%

Pours a chill hazed amber with a pinky of eggshell colored head. Never really clears, great lacing & good head retention

S: Faint pineapple, some breadyness, then grapefruit & passion fruit

T: Breadyness, faint grapefruit, pears & lemon zest up front. Grapefruit pith, pineyness, dryness, a little bit of peach & pears as this warms. Finishes with a big grapefruit pop & some pineapple & dryness & a little bit of pear

MF: Medium bodied, delicate carbonation, good balance

Could easily pass as an AIPA, very drinkable, ABV is well hidden
