4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Glass: 12-oz. plastic cup
From: Hoppy Monk in El Paso, Texas
Purchased: Sept. 27, 2013
Consumed: Sept. 27, 2013
Misc.: In a very dark place during Oktoberfest
Poured what appeared to be a dark caramel amber color with two fingers of khaki white head. Tons of even layered lacing on the sides of the cup. Good retention all the way down.
Smelled a potent mix of wonderfully smelling hops. Got floral, citrus, grapefruit, peach and a touch of resin.
Tasted more earthier than the smell, but still fresh. Bitter grapefruit, floral heavy and citrus notes.
Medium body. Oily texture. Average carbonation. Long, bitter finish.
This was just a fantastic beer. I would love to try it again.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12oz bottle. Pours a light amber color with a two finger white head that slowly fades to a small layer and leaves a lot of sticky lacing. The nose is full of tropical fruits and grapefruit and earthy hops. The taste has a huge bitterness with lots of grapefruit and sweet malt during the first sip. After the first few sips I can pick out some tropical fruits. Bitter hop monster. The feel is thick and chewy with a great amount of carbonation.

Draught at The Chimes, Baton Rouge, LA as Saint Arnold Endeavour.
Clear amber colour.
Sweet hops, strawberries... very sweet aroma.
Very sweet and bitter hops. Strong bitterness in the flavour. Bitterness stays. Soft carbonation. Warms a lot!

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
9th February 2013
As ’Endeavour’. Bright clear amber beer with a good off white head. Palate is light with and with moderate fine carbonation. Mild minerals. Light creamy malt with lactose and a little caramel. Subtle floral note. The hops are fairly rich without being over bitter. Resinous tangerine and a little marmalade and skunk. Touch of sweet pine. A light sweetish IPA, effortlessly drinkable.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle shared at CPK in London. Thanks to Bruce. Pours clear copper with a creamy white ead. Quite a sweet IPA, plenty of ripe fruits, a bit of caramel, bred, pine and melon. Medium to full bodied with fine to average carbonation. Well and resinous to finish, lots of pine, plenty of caramel and bread sweetness. Pretty simplistic and quite sweet.

A lot of hops but the combination of them plus a nice amount of malt seems to make this very balanced and not harsh on the palate. Not overly bitter. I can almost get the peach flavor from it. Smooth for the big ABV.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: JUL 29, 2013 Bottle. Pours a clear light amber body and small white head. Nose is red berries, peaches, caramel, hints of herbs and apricot. Taste is peachy red fruits, grass, hints of rosewater and raisins. Full body, soft carbonation. OK, but nothing special really.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap in a pint glass. Pours an orange amber color with a small head but good lacing on the glass. Aroma is a nice balance between citrusy hops and malty sweetness. Complex taste. Hoppy up front, fades into sweet, and finishes a little boozy. Good balance between hops and malt. Average carbonation with a slightly sharp finish. Good overall beer.
