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 Front Porch Pub. Pours a clear orange amber with a small creamy white head that leaves good sticky lacing. The aroma is a piney hop with citrus and floral. Medium mouthfeel with a sweet hop with fruit, mostly peach with a nice lingering bitter finish. Hides the alcohol well making it very easy to drink. Really enjoyed this IIPA from Saint Arnold. Hope they make this a seasonal.

I lucked out and got the last bottle from Central Market. The first guy said they were out but the second guy I talked to said that he put one to the side (lucky me). So I poured a 12 oz bottle into my tulip glass... The color of the beer was copper with a two finger off-white head that sunk in, leaving a filmy layer and lacing on the glass. The smell is all hops, the aromas consist of peach, lime, pine and just a hint of vanilla. I first tasted bitter pine, then sweet malt and lots of fruity hops. I noticed flavors of peach and cream with a bitter grapefruit finish. The beer is medium bodied with moderate carbonation and a dry finish. I thought the Divine Reserve was one of the best Texas beers that Iíve had. Canít wait until next year.

AndresTM (306) - Vienna, AUSTRIA - MAR 19, 2012
UPDATED: SEP 4, 2012 On tap at the brewery. Big, full-flavored ale, with a fresh, green bouquet of peach, grapefruit, grassy notes, pine, and a nutty malt background. The palate is medium, almost thin for a DIPA, but quite serviceable nonetheless. The taste is hop bitter and fruity sweet, with notes of peach, grapefruit, green mangoes, nuts, and some floral overtones. The malts definitely balance things out very well, making this a very approachable DIPA, much more so than bigger, scarier exemplars of the style. Loved it.

Aroma is hoppy and citrusy. Pours clear amber with a bit of an orange tint. Small head that doesnít stick around too long. Taste is great combination of hops & malt. Creamy mouthfeel with almost a wine-like character. Nice finish thatís not too bitter. Overall an excellent beer. Very highly recommended!

RollinHard (1024) - Fort Worth, Texas, USA - MAR 29, 2011
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!

Not being a hophead, I found this really enjoyable. Very nice balance between the citrus notes and the malt. Drank just a tad hot.

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 AttitudeBrew for this one in trade. Pours a clear orange with a white head. Nose is some caramel, orange, citrus, apricot flesh, and some orange peel. Flavor is similar with lots of lovable citrus qualities: apricots, peaches, some honey, a bit of booze, and hints of sweetness. Medium-bodied and very nice.

(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.
