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.

rumproasts (3232) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - OCT 26, 2014
sample from bottle at 2014 houston big brew fest. Deep golden with one finger head. Well balanced DIPA. Not particularly unique, but a quality brew nonetheless.

thebeertourist (4901) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 20, 2014
On tap at Munich Tap-House. Clear amber, decent head. Nice citrussy and piney hop nose, good hop bitterness in the mouth. Strangely easy drinking, but nice.

I’m just going to say I’m 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

swesson (256) - Highlands Ranch, Colorado, USA - SEP 6, 2014
From a bomber. Pours a dark orange and makes a cream-colored head. This double is a nice treat...smells of fresh hops and tastes of malted barley, caramel, and of course, hops! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

chiiidog (42) - Lubbock, Texas, USA - SEP 5, 2014
UPDATED: SEP 6, 2014 Endeavor DIPA. Nice balanced double IPA. Moderately hoppy with soft pine notes. Nothing particularly outstanding or special but it’s tasty and it goes down easy.

HonkeyBra (3518) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - AUG 26, 2014
12 oz. bottle from my Secret Santa. Thanks man! Pours an orangish amber with a small off white head. Decent lacing. Aroma of peach, pineapple. Somewhat juicy, with some orange peel. Flavor is fruity, with some mild caramel malt backing and a twinge of alcohol. Medium to full bodied, aerage carbonation. Finishes with hoppy with a bit of booze. This is pretty nice.
