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.

mad props to coldbrewky and KAggie97 for this one. dark burnt orange capped by small silky off white head. lovely lacing around the glass. Strong malt nose with addition of pine and caramel. This is a malt bomb with a creamy body that melts around the mouth. Enough bitterness but hop flavors are a bit subdued. Pine and citrus do linger a bit.

Thanks to Kaggie for this haul. My father and UDbeernut were able to enjoy a bottle each. Lightly hazy orange amber Creamy tanish head grows quickly and then stops abrubtly. Nose is strongly backed malts with hop afterthoughts. Nose grows to butter covered malts after it sits a bit. Drippy tight legs. Much like the Snake Plisken tag line in Escape From LA..."I thought you’d be bigger....." I said of the body. Hops gently and last and linger but are strangely unobtrusive. Grapefruit with light sugar added...thin finish of malt. A surprisingly subtle brew.

Dark gold, decent head. Aroma if IPA - tons of citrus and fruit. Taste is malt and sweetness up front, but gives way to taste of cantaloupe and perhaps. peaches. Fruity. Excellent.

UPDATED: JUN 16, 2012 I had this under the name of Endeavour. Wonderful aroma - I sipped very slowly so I could enjoy the aroma. Citrus and hops. Very bitter but not overpoweringly so. Slight sweetness. Heavy, not overly thick. Overall, an excellent beer.

22 oz. bottle courtesy of a trade with crajun. Pours a mostly clear copper with a moderate off white head that lasted through the first quarter of the glass and left partial lace. Very pleasant aroma of resinous pine, caramel, and a bit of malt. The flavor is more a combination of pine and citrus with some mild-moderate support from the malt. Mild-moderate bitterness at the finish. Medium-full bodied. Solid.

Pours clear and amber with a thin white head. Nice lacing. Piney aroma with slight citrus. Good malt backbone gives way to a smooth, lingering hop finish. Little sign of alcohol given the abv. Very nice offering from St Arnold. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
