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.

Bottle. Pours clear amber with a medium white head that dissipates with great lacing. Aroma is grapefruit, pine and caramel. Flavor is the same, lightly sweet and very bitter from start to finish. Pretty good, but a bit over the top for me.

22oz bomber courtesy of Terminus. It pours clear copper with gold hues and half inch tan head of foam. The mild aroma offers up bitter hops that are a touch citrus sort of lime like as well as notes of sweet malts and biscuit like malts. The taste has bitter hops made up of citrus notes like grapefruit and lime as well as resiny hop bitterness. From here it rolls into increasing malt sweetness. The bitterness stays firm from front to back. Pretty nice.

Beerenberger (1605) - Fischer, Texas, USA - SEP 23, 2012
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 Im not a big IPA fan, this was a very smooth and pleasing IPA. I would drink this again. (tasted it as Endeavour IPA)

In bottle at Craigs. Pours a dark golden colour with a thin white head. Aroma of pine, pineapple, passion fruit and alcohol. Similar flavours with mild carbonation and an oily mouth-feel. Alcohol is fairly prominent with a rounded caramel and pineapple finish. Nicely bitter.

22 oz bottle poured into pint glass. Red-orange with amber backing, frothy white head that leaves fantastic lacing all about the glass. Smells slightly better than a typical IPA, forward with pine needles, orange, slight dankness, light caramel. Tastes great. Ripe citrus, prolonged and enjoyable bitterness, alcohol burn, hint of ginger. Great TX beer. Happy to get this fresh.
