Notes: 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: 3.75 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 3 | overall: 2

Big bottle, 16 oz or so. No indication of how old this is.

A: Amber body, no haze to it. Nice head and decent retention.

S: Malt, caramel, sugar. No hop profile. Not a good start.

T: Malt bomb. No hop bitterness at all. Very unbalanced.

M: Good carbonation. Mouthfeel is fine.

O: I'm always cautious of buying undated bottles, but this is local and from a popular beer store. But I got burned. Tired of wasting my money on this crap. Date your bottles!

A pretty brew, with clear orange body and white wispy head, lots of lacing. The nose is quiet, and what is there is floral and a bit soapy. Flavor is traditional IPA, bitter with a bit of pine and lemony hop notes. The close, all told, lands pretty light, and the drying is minimal. Not one I'd reach for a 6-pack, but fine for a dinner IPA, when the option presents itself.
