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.

UnDecaf (106) - Mountain View, California, USA - OCT 9, 2013
Pours a redish amber with a fluffy off-white head. Fairly thin and not nearly as bitter as I expected. Some alcohol at the front before going floral and piney, with a bit too much sweetness in the finish.

BucannonXC5 (885) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 2, 2013
Type: Draft Glass: 12-oz. plastic cup From: Hoppy Monk in El Paso, Texas Price: $6.00 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.

ROGUE (2099) - Newark, Delaware, USA - SEP 21, 2013
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!

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.

Leighton (11322) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 11, 2013
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.
