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: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

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
