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.

On tap at Avenue Pub in New Orleans. Pours a pale reddish color with notice of a head. Citrusy flavors, and hop flavor lingers a long time.

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.

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.

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)

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.

Dixonian (1562) - Plano, Texas, USA - APR 15, 2011
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.

harrymel (1551) - Spokane, Washington, USA - MAR 7, 2014
Bottled: 23dec13 (I think) Pours amber and hazed with a solid creamy quilt. Smells of resin, citrus, biscuit, some pine and sweetness. Flavor follows with a solid biscuit malt character with some tea. There is some bitterness and also some pine and resin. Medium on full bodied with omderately hi carb and a semi dry finish. Good beer, would be nice to know if I were drinking a bottled on date or a best by date.

(This review is for Endeavour.) Itís incredibly clear-bodied, but has a dark orange color that screams Double IPA. Its aroma is pretty much perfect for the style, a complex and huge bouquet of earthy, piney, floral, and slightly citrusy hops. Clean, fresh, and bright in the nose, itís really hard to put it down... or take a drink. Drowning your nose in the glass is totally acceptable, and appropriate. Once in the mouth, Endeavour continues to deliver the hop profile your nose has become accustomed to. Itís full and bold in the mouth with a hint of caramel sweetness. The hopping of this and the varieties used is simply phenomenal. As bold as the hops are, itís body is almost thin and the beer is incredibly easy to drink. The malts that comprise the beer are tame enough to not interfere with what this beerís really about, only adding a sweetness to compliment the hops. It finishes fresh and clean, and with as much hops that slam your senses, its overall bitterness is relatively low and its finish easy.
