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.

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 (13373) - 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.

brokensail (12362) - Orange County, California, USA - MAY 23, 2011
A: The beer pours amber in color with a finger or so of off-white head. S: Very sweet. Lots of caramel and toffee, brown sugar, and some toasted bread as well. Pine and floral hops with a bit of citrus and grass to it, too. Maybe a hint booze. T: Quite sweet on the palate. Caramel, brown sugar, and toffee are the primary flavors. Some citrus hops (grapefruit), with a decent amount of bitterness which helps to subdue a bit of the sweetness. M: Medium to full in body with a medium level of carbonation. O: Far too sweet for what I look for in a double IPA.
