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 45į 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.

This double IPA poured the usual golden body, and had the usual pine and citrus head. What separates it from the ordinary was the flavor. Very unbalanced towards the hop-end... and itís fantastic. There was a light hop presence with hints of tangerine, but this all lead to a strong dry finish. Very drinkable and a perfect beer for a hop-head. Shared by the generous OmegaX - thanks guy.

Thanks a bunch to Dixonian for this Texas gem. Aromas were huge with pine, well water, herbal basil and jasmine, some caramel, grapefruit, and more pine. Intense hop aromas. I like!! The body is golden orange with an off-white head. The flavor profile was obviously hop-heavy with a slight bit of malt (caramel). So much pine in there! Some grapefruit and pumelo bitterness were in there, too, leaving a dry finish. Very good but I would like a touch more malt presence. A hop bomb for sure.

Amber color with tight white head. Pine, citrus, and floral notes on the nose. Hops and citrus with nice bitterness on the finish. Very nice.

UPDATED: APR 25, 2012 Pours a great gold color with a small white head and lacing. It has a great citrus aroma. The flavor is hoppy but balanced, with some malt flavors and a slightly sweet aftertaste where the peaches show up along with a nice mouthfeel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

AndresTM (309) - Vienna, AUSTRIA - MAR 19, 2012
UPDATED: SEP 4, 2012 On tap at the brewery. Big, full-flavored ale, with a fresh, green bouquet of peach, grapefruit, grassy notes, pine, and a nutty malt background. The palate is medium, almost thin for a DIPA, but quite serviceable nonetheless. The taste is hop bitter and fruity sweet, with notes of peach, grapefruit, green mangoes, nuts, and some floral overtones. The malts definitely balance things out very well, making this a very approachable DIPA, much more so than bigger, scarier exemplars of the style. Loved it.

Endeavor bomber. Clear orangish brown pour with a lightly bubbly white head. Aroma is orange, caramel, and pine. Flavor is pine, light citrus, some caramel, and bitterness with a nice warming finish. Dry mouthfeel.

Big bottle. Called Endeavor (but Rate Beer directed me here) Poured a light copper color. A smaller head. Aroma is of fresh citrus hop that is just a tad off. But indeed this bottle smells very fresh. Some grapefruit and peach in the nose. Medium-heavy bitter. Smooth, creamy palate. Medium body. They poured on the hops in this one. Fresh tasting citrus hop with a tad pine. Very pleasing.

Golden color, barely cloudy with a good, thick white head. Old paper and Belgian yeast nose. Very smooth and easy to enjoy. No hint of high abv. Lively palate. Dusty texture. The taste is like a dry Belgian but serves up a Americans appetite for hops. Good lacing. Warms the belly, gently.

Got this in a trade. Picked it up fresh last week so Iím stoked to open one tonight! Poured into a tulip.

A - Poured a 3-finger head that was leather in appearance with tight bubbles. The brew itself is a golden light brown. No haze or sediment.

S - Delicious hops and caramel erupt in the nose. Iím getting apricot and vanilla. Loving the candy like qualities of this beer. Hops are not intense though. Very manageable.

T - Lovely fruits like apricot and peaches. Delicious hops but I wish it were a little more hoppy. The hops fade away very fast. Very sweet finish but very little else going on.

M - 90% carbonation on a mouth swish. Light bodied, easy to drink. The linger is all hops though and they resin sort of sticks around but goes south fast.

O - ITís a decent beer. Nothing remarkable but a very drinkalbe IPA and perfect for this warm Friday night.

Big aroma. Lots of banana and tropical fruit. Pours deep golden with fleck of orange. Taste is hop forward, no real malt presence (with detracts slightly). Palate is slightly sticky, but very sleight - which adds. All in all a great brew.
