I've had other beers from this brewery. Never had STLIPA but the was happy to see it on tap at my hotel. Great color in the glass -- beautiful copper. Good nose. Complex flavor due to the hop bill. Strong. Good mouth feel. Nice finish. Excellent Double IPA. Not as much alcohol taste as you'd expect from such a high gravity beer. Recommended.

A - Nice golden honey with 1 finger white head. Lots of carb in this beer. Bubbles rolling everywhere. Very good head retention as well

S - Lighter aroma than most IPAs, but a different aroma than most IPAs as well. I detect some lemon and something I cant quite put my finger on. Its almost floral smelling. Aroma finishes sweet.

T - Very similar to the aroma but more potent. Again, a floral taste but very pleasant. It does have a nice citrus in the background mainly lemon.

M - Wow...this beer is smooth for a DIPA. Very light drinking and goes down way to easy! Impressed

O - This is an awesome DIPA with a cool name too! I believe you could even call this DIPA sessionable and you can definitely call it dangerous!
