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.

Iím just going to say Iím happy that the folks up at Saint Arnolds made this beer a year round brew. I normally have one with a hearty steak dinner and finish it off with a boiler room Berliner weisse with raspberry tarts for desert

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.

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!

Bomber bottled on 3/4/14. This is a good looking beer. Dark orange/amber pour, nice fluffy off white head. Leaves nice alcohol legs on it. Aroma is big citrus hops, pineapple, orange zest, grapefruit, mango... just amazing. Taste is lots of orange and grapefruit, but a sweet maltiness to take the bitter edge off. Nice sticky mouthfeel, nice dry finish. Thereís a lot to like about this beer, and Iím glad I finally got around to trying it.

Reviewed from notes. Received in trade. The appearance was a somewhat hazy golden amber color with a nice less than a fingerís worth of a bright white head that ends up barely leaving any lacing. The smell - wow - just how the caramel infuses into the citrus and pine hops as eloquently as it does gee weez, wow, as it warms, I do get some light honey. The taste was a pure bittersweetness that leads on to want to indulge in this beast. Iím trying to sip but seem to be lead on a bit as I canít quite get over the fact how sweet and bitter this rolls over my tastebuds. The aftertaste is perhaps one of the best aftertastes Iíve ever had for a DIPA (uh-oh, Heady and Pliney, what do we got here), sweet sticky yet also somewhat dry finish. On the palate, it sits about a medium on the body with a decent sessionable aspect showing up, whereís the alcohol in this? Uh....actually, Iím ok with that. Carbonation is absolutely par on for the style and for me as thereís a decent harshness but not overly done. Overall, whoah, whereís this one coming from? Geez Louise. Texas - eh? Haha, way to go St Arnoldís, if I lived in your distro, I would be stalking for this beer on a daily basis and Iím having this with two months on it. I can only imagine what it is like fresh. Iím jealous of those who get this on a regular basis, but realize its a good jealousy as I would have this again in a heartbeat.

Bomber: ENDEAVOUR IIPA - Copper orange color with 2 fingers of off white , dense, lush foam, which settles after a couple of minutes leaving lace. Aroma is nice and juicy, fruity with orange, honey, and pine. The flavor is a nice balance of acidic and bitter, with nice caramel backbone, it finishes with a touch of aspirin dryness. Medium-full palate, slightly slick, soft mouthfeel adequate carbonation, holds up pretty well with warming. Really nice IIPA.

This was pretty good. A nice color, the hops are good and well balanced. Not too sweet. A solid double IPA.
