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.

UPDATED: MAR 30, 2011 Bought at 8:15am at Kroger, chilled for 30 minutes .. . Pours a deep golden amber, head is very good- and the lacing is even better .. . Aroma is quite something- spruce, resin, sap, fresh squeezed hop juice, and honey hop nuggets .. . very clean and slick on the tongue, this could get you in trouble with how easy and enjoyable this is to drink! .. . perfect dose of bitterness to go with the sweet resiny hoppiness and hop oil that coats the tongue .. . this is a delicious beer, and is easily the best Divine Reserve on release .. . Cheers to Saint Arnolds, and as my mom said as she tried this brew for first time "its like frolicking in a pasture of fresh hops" well said ma! . ... .. Say, Dave, maybe after work you’d like to go by the zoo and shoot goats..

Pour from a bottle is a nice clear amber with a white head. Aroma is flowery with a hint of pine. Taste is a little malty with a nice citrus flavor. Leaves a clean bitter aftertaste.

22oz bomber poured into a snifter. Labeled as "Saint Arnold Endeavour". Pours a clear dark copper with about 3 fingers of thick white head. Aroma of pine and citrus hops with just a little caramel. Taste is medium bitter and light sweet. Pine and citrus hops with a good bit of caramel malt. Medium-full bodied with a thick and creamy texture. Lively carbonation and a long bitter finish. Overall, very good. I would gladly drink this again.

Fresh bottle. Pours clear darkish amber with a thick white head that hangs around for a while. Aroma of grapefruit and pine sap with some caramel. Flavor is of grapefruit, pine, and sweet malt, some peach. Sweet then bitter hop aftertaste. medium to heavy body. Wonderful IIPA. I think I read it best described by "finnadat" on Twitter saying: "A grapefruit makes love to a christmas tree in a malty bathtub, in a good way."

Bottle from market street. Pours a rich amber with a thin white head. The aromas are pine mixed in with some pine and then bathed in some pine with grapefruit and dough. The mouthfeel is bitter, dry and sticky with a heavy body. This was a fantastic beer. Cheers!

UPDATED: JUN 16, 2012 I had this under the name of Endeavour. Wonderful aroma - I sipped very slowly so I could enjoy the aroma. Citrus and hops. Very bitter but not overpoweringly so. Slight sweetness. Heavy, not overly thick. Overall, an excellent beer.

From bottle. Pretty burnt orange with very little head and virtually no lacing. Hoppy nose; maybe a little grassy. Active carbonation. Lots of hop character, solid balance and a nice tingle on the lips and tongue. Dry, bitter finish. Has every quality I like in a beer. In my top five of all-time favorites.
