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.

Bottle from ericandersnavy from free beer week. Cloudy amber with a thin off-white head. Aroma is hoppy, resin and a lot of grapefruit, some caramel but mostly hops. Taste is sweet with medium bitterness, not quite as much as I expected. Bitter finish. Full bodied, soft carbonation, syrupy texture. Quite good.

dnstone (2352) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - APR 16, 2012
Pours a copper color with descent white head. Fruity-cirus hop aroma. FLavor starts hoppy fruity-citrusy then gets into more earthy malt and hop flavors in the finish...the finish is actuallly a bit unpleasant. This beer has potential, but comes up short.

cbkschubert (2900) - BFE, Arizona, USA - APR 12, 2012
22 oz. bottle via trade with rougeau13 - Pours a crystal clear copper color with a one and a half finger thick off white head. Lively carbonation. Light lacing. Aroma is pine and floral hops with a tad bit of toasted malt hiding in there. Flavor is much of the same with a little more malt presences. There’s a decent amount of bitterness lingering in the finish. Medium body. A good beer. Thanks Jared.

reggiedunlop (3410) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 12, 2012
Pours a clear amber/ruby with a medium tan head. Aroma is malty and fruity with candied fruits and vanilla...a hint of tea-like hops. Flavor follows suit...some bitterness but largely fruity and malty. DIPA? Where the hell are the hops!? Mouthfeel is medium/full and sticky sweet with a fruity/bitter finish...awful.

No wonder this beer was so fantastic - the Divine Reserve series is usually very well crafted. This one being no exception it has the pop of a fresh imperial IPA without being too harsh. I don’t know why you would age it on purpose though.

Aroma / Appearance - The amber semi-opaque base traps about half the light that trickles through. A white billowing head bobs like the crests of wave caps hitting the shore. Orange peels, citrus, and aggressive hops hit the senses with a mission. There is no subtly at all in the approach.

Flavor / Palate - Wheat, orange zest, citrus polish, and a small mountain of crisp hops hit the palate all at once. Bitter, dry, and sharp enough to cut through even a couple of previous pints, this has the entire package from start to finish. At some point I’ll have to fill in the gaps in the series that are still out there to see what else they’ve got hiding in those innocent looking bottles.
