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 45į 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.

Above average. This is the original bottling, not the Endeavour version, so this had some age on it. I had this when it first came out and can say it has mellowed but not by much. The aroma is sweeter and has a floral essence. The color is a clear amber with virtually no head. Smooth, almost oily palate. The flavors have blended well but it has become sweeter with the hops bitterness dropping slightly. Alcohol is still present and the carbonation has lessened a little. Still a good brew.

Bottle. Poured orange with a creamy off-white head that left good lace. Aroma of caramel, floral, and light fruit. The flavor found floral, light pine, and caramel. Medium body and a medium bitterness.

Saint Arnold Endeavor has a thick, creamy, cream-colored head and a clear, bubbly amber appearance. Lacing is not too heavy. The aroma is of sharp pine oil and citrus, with an underlying cream cheese smell. Taste is of sweet bread, strong citrus bitterness, cheese, and the alcohol does present itself in the undertaste. Mouthfeel is medium, and Saint Arnold Endeavor finishes mostly dry and fairly easy drinking. Even with its odd, slightly off aftertaste, I still think itís very good. RJT

Amber with a white frothy, lacy lasting head. Nice smell of citrus hops caramel and flowers. Nice smooth citrus with a decent balanced bitter finish. Caramel and pine. Nice level of hoppiness. Very gold beer.

UPDATED: OCT 30, 2013 Bottle. Pours a dark orange-red-gold with a fine-grained, off-white head. Huge nose of grapefruit and geraniums, with a touch of resin. Huge hop bitterness on the front, and then an amazingly clean, citrus tingle that is reminiscent of fresh ruby red grapefruit juice and wheat toast. (All I need is a scrambled egg, and itís breakfast!) Amazing mouthfeel -- so often DIPAs finish murky, but this one is so clear it rings. Bravo.

Thanks to Kaggie for this haul. My father and UDbeernut were able to enjoy a bottle each. Lightly hazy orange amber Creamy tanish head grows quickly and then stops abrubtly. Nose is strongly backed malts with hop afterthoughts. Nose grows to butter covered malts after it sits a bit. Drippy tight legs. Much like the Snake Plisken tag line in Escape From LA..."I thought youíd be bigger....." I said of the body. Hops gently and last and linger but are strangely unobtrusive. Grapefruit with light sugar added...thin finish of malt. A surprisingly subtle brew.

12 oz bottle thanks to my RB buddies Dave and Kevin. Drank at the hotel near IAH airport and great to have a hometown beer for rating #900. Pours bright hazy gold with a nice thick white head. Aroma is very piney and resiny, with some hints of sweetness. Taste is a tad sweet on tongue, but with huge piney notes of hops. Mouth puckering bitterness on the end and no noticeable hints of malts. This is true hop bomb. This is one of the most bitter IIPA/IPAís Iíve ever had, which makes more than difficult to drink more than one at a sitting. Enjoyable and certainly a good addition to the DR series-however I still think #5 is the best of this series.

Beerenberger (1601) - Fischer, Texas, USA - SEP 23, 2012
Aroma is sweet grapefruit. Appearance is an orangeish amber with a thin none lasting ivory head and some lacing. The taste is much the same as the aroma - grapefruit from start to finish and aftertaste. Medium bodied and medium carbonation. Overall, while Iím not a big IPA fan, this was a very smooth and pleasing IPA. I would drink this again. (tasted it as Endeavour IPA)

12oz bottle. Clear deep orange brew with a small amount of white head. Aroma is very nice with lots of pine, citrus, and some malty sweetness. Flavor is pretty balanced with a nice bitter finish - grapefruit, herbs, and a bit of peach. Is this yearís DR worthy of all the hype? Probably not. Itís still a very tasty and drinkable DIPA and considerably better than Saint Arnoldís regular brews.
