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.

Taste is citrus, pine, booze and bread, with a nice boozy finish. Well done.

Pours clear gold amber with a medium frothy head that clears quickly. Aroma is pine, grapefruit and a bit of malt. Very bitter hops with a smooth finish, nice level of carbonation. Really a great example of a double IPA.

Bottle sample at a tasting at Ariels place. Thanks beerandbeyond. As Saint Arnold Endeavour. Clear dark orange-amber. Aroma of piney, floral and slightly citric hops. Flavor has a bit of malty sweetness and piney hop bitterness. Medium-bodied.

Saint Arnold Endeavor has a thick, creamy, cream-colored head and a clear, bubbly amber appearance. Lacing is not too heavy. The aroma is of sharp pine oil and citrus, with an underlying cream cheese smell. Taste is of sweet bread, strong citrus bitterness, cheese, and the alcohol does present itself in the undertaste. Mouthfeel is medium, and Saint Arnold Endeavor finishes mostly dry and fairly easy drinking. Even with its odd, slightly off aftertaste, I still think its very good. RJT

Tap at The Hay Merchant. Poured a deep, yet clear orange with a one-finger white head and great lacing. Smell is caramel, grapefruit, pine, grass, and citrus. Taste is much the same and very well-balanced. Flavors of big pine, grass, and resin with a sweet caramel backbone to smooth it out leading to a moderately bitter finish. Great sticky mouthfeel with high carbonation. This IPA is very well-balanced and not one characteristic overpowers any of the others. Nicely done.

(This review is for Endeavour.) Its 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, its 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. Its 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, its 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 beers 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.

12 oz bottle. Pours a clear dark copper body with a nice one finger frothy off-white head that retained as a thin covering. Some nice lacing clinging to the glass after each sip. Some nice C-hops on the nose with some big grapefruit rind, though there is a hefty amount of caramel maltiness below. The flavor is actually pretty well balanced between the malt and hops. The sweetness of the malt takes the brash edge off of the hops. The bitterness still comes through pretty well though. Medium to full bodied with a slightly thick and chewy texture. Pretty nice DIPA.

Poured from a bomber into a plastic Citizens Bank Park plastic cup, keep it classy Philly! Pours a light amber with lots of frothy white head and lacing. Aroma is sticky piney hops. Mouthfeel is moderate and cry slightly dry. Taste is tropical fruit with a good amount of pine tossed in. I like this beer. And the more I drank of it the more I liked it. Good job St. Arnold's, good job indeed! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Wonder amber color on the pour! Slight hint of citrus on the palate at first that dissipates. Very well rounded with wonderful malts that explode on the palate. Try to get Endeavor while it is still out.

mad props to coldbrewky and KAggie97 for this one. dark burnt orange capped by small silky off white head. lovely lacing around the glass. Strong malt nose with addition of pine and caramel. This is a malt bomb with a creamy body that melts around the mouth. Enough bitterness but hop flavors are a bit subdued. Pine and citrus do linger a bit.
