COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The color is deep amber with a light, creamy head. The nose starts off with a touch of citrus but then turns decidedly into peaches. The taste starts off with creamy malt resulting from the pale 2 row and caramel malts and Saint Arnold yeast. The hop bitter starts low then builds to a crescendo, but always maintains a balance even in its big finish. The hop flavor continues to be peaches, an interesting manifestation of the Columbus, Simcoe and Centennial hops. This is the first Divine Reserve that we have filtered. This decision was made to make the hop flavors brighter, plus it would have been a bottling nightmare with all the hop bits in it. This beer is best enjoyed at 45° or even a little warmer. Though the recipe and style indicate this beer to be enjoyed fresh, we expect this beer to develop interestingly over the years.

650 ml bottle purchased from the local H.E.B, Austin TX. Hazy Amber color slight head in a mason jar. Aroma is heavy on caramel malt, resin, slight citrus.

Flavor has a strong backbone of caramel and toffee. The hops come again as resin with mild floral tones. Over all this seems to be going the way of the dinosaur, a very dated IPA with a lot of caramel. Well, no flaws so it has that.

22 oz. bottle as Endeavour from Spec’s El Paso split with drsordr. Pours a clear amber color with small off white head. The aroma and flavor have dank, citrus, peaches, a little pith, caramel, toasted malt, moderate bitterness, I don’t know how old this is, but it still has decent hop character, I missed this as Divine Reserve 11, but this is decent enough.

650 ml. as "Endeavour" bottled 10/24/2014. Clear copper with a rocky disc of foam. Aroma is earthy orange toffee and menthol. Flavors of toffee, mint and whole grain toast. Medium body is dry and smooth with a low level of CO2, but a bit boozy.

Bomber from Spec’s - Memorial in Houston, TX. Slightly hazy light orange pour with a white soapy head. Nice citrus and sweet peachy aroma. Little bit of malt sneaking in there on aroma as well. Taste is very similar. Fairly aggressive on the tongue. Good brew. This actually softens up and gets a little fruitier/peachier as it warms a bit.

gyllenbock (5796) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - APR 13, 2015
Bottle from Houston, thanks Jonas. Clear dark golden with a dense head. Aroma and taste of hops, caramel, pineapple, citrus and some grass. On the sweet side and with a pleasant bitter finish. Fresh and nicely drinkable, a tasty beer.

Nice sweet cereal aroma. Pours with a nice golden amber color. Medium carbonation. Sweet biscuit flavor with a nice balance with the hops. This is a wonderful brew!

Sweet hoppy aroma that does contain a lot of peaches like the description says. Pretty color, dark for an IPA with a tiny off-white head. Taste is also peachy after the initial rush of hops, but the peaches really show through in the aftertaste. Good and interesting mixture of hops in this one. Palate is dense for the style. I thought I had tried every kind of IPA, but this one threw me for a loop.
