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.

AZBennett (114) - Chandler, Arizona, USA - JUN 9, 2013
Pours dark golden hue with a small white head that disappears quickly. Aromas are big pine and resin hops with just a dash of citrus and some caramel. Flavors are bitter pine and resin, hints of citrus around the edges, soft caramel and a touch of flowers. Palate is a little flat I expected more carbonation from this beer and it just didn’t allow the beer to really hit all the right spots on my palate. Overall this is a solid above average DIPA. It’s not going to compete against the tops in this category but it will beat a lot of the other DIPAs out there.

Theydon_Bois (7935) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - JUN 1, 2013
Tap at the Flying Saucer, Houston, 21/05/13. Listed as ’Saint Arnold - Endeavour’. Clear dark amber with a thin off white head. Nose is caramel malt forward, hops, pine, bitter grapefruit. Taste comprises mineral notes, hops, decent level of pine bite, sugars, light booze, bitter grapefruit, orange pith. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, slightly warming in the finish with hop bitterness. Decent enough but not top draw. The booze came through a little too much in the finish for 8.9%.

Pleasantly surprised with this IPA, as I'm not a huge St. Arnold's fan. Great aroma with hops and fruit -- citrus mostly. It's strong. 8.9% abv. and quite hoppy, but delicious and a thick taste on the tongue unlike most IPAs I've had (feels creamy, but doesn't look it). Deep amber color. Nice light cream head. Really delicious and a great value for <$5 for a 22oz bottle. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

drjay44 (2568) - Salida, Colorado, USA - MAY 4, 2013
651 ml. bottle. Pours a thick, well retained off white head, with some lacing, over a slightly hazy dark gold (SRM 7) body......nose is resin, pine, grapefruit, toffee/caramel.....taste is medium toffee/caramel sweetness, balanced by pine, resin, citrus peel, finishing with moderate bitterness.......mouth feel medium, slightly sticky, alcohol hidden, carbonation low, slightly acidic. This is a very typicial I/DIPA. It is slightly sweeter than many, but has all the clean refreshing qualities, combined with appropriate complexity in both the malt and hop backbones. BJCP 8/3/15/4/7
