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 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.

Dark gold, decent head. Aroma if IPA - tons of citrus and fruit. Taste is malt and sweetness up front, but gives way to taste of cantaloupe and perhaps. peaches. Fruity. Excellent.

Golden copper peach in color. Kind of a biscuity aroma with some citrus. Its almost like lemon scones. Nice! Immediate upfront pine and citrus bitterness with a touch of aspirin in the aftertaste. Overall, very tasty and drinkable immediately as opposed to SAís usual MO releasing the beer then consumers hold the DRs for a few months to let the flavor develop. Solidly brewed...

UPDATED: AUG 10, 2011 bottle. Pours a clear amber with a nice, off-white head. Wow, the nose is very nice with pine and grapefruit citrus apparent. This is very tasty grapefruit with malt sweetness balancing. Mouthfeel is medium-thin and a tad sticky with a nice bitter finish. This is the best brew ever made by Saint Arnold, outside of DR5. Hope they make this a regular, or at least a seasonal, because I love it and would buy it in bulk. Congrats, Saint Arnold on a damn good brew.

Bottle as part of the fest. Really enjoyable, easy to drink, a good lawnmower beer. Not sure what else there is to say...

Taste is citrus, pine, booze and bread, with a nice boozy finish. Well done.

UPDATED: MAY 17, 2011 Bottles courtesy ericandersnavy, thanks again. Poured a nice golden orange with very minimal head. The aroma had a nice amount of citrus hops with very little malt detected. The taste was a deal breaker as the beginning had a decent amount of bitter present from the hops but then the malt and alcohol took over. Compared to other DIPAs I would have said the beer was slightly old but this beer is only a few weeks old. It was still fairly easy to drink and not totally off putting with the malt. Iím not sure that I will put any away for later as I highly doubt the flavor will become anymore "interesting" than it currently is. (At least for my palate.)

Bottle. Clear amber with a thick bubbly white head. Aroma is beautiful. Sweet, fresh juicy citrus. Similar flavors. Really great fresh orange juice sweetness with a firm but restrained bitterness. Finishes dry with a long, drawn out astringency.

Pours bright clear burnt orange with a long lasting moderate white head. Aroma is really pungent with TONS of grass, lemon, herbs, slight grapfruit, and barely a suggestion of caramelly malt. Itís like hop potpourri. Flavor of grass, lemon, pepper, pine with a bit more caramel and toasted biscuits. Finishes with grapefruit and pepper, while the malt takes on an earthier quality. Bitter aftertaste keeps on going, but thankfully itís flavorful as well. Medium bodied, creamy, very pleasant to drink and the alcohol is tough to detect. Lovely beer, very well made, and the hop character is INCREDIBLY fresh. Get your sixer before itís too late!
