22 oz bottle from my man Secret Santa. Pours deep amber with a 1 finger off white head. A smattering of lace. Nice citrus nose, lush and tropical. Taste is citrus with a just right amount of sweetness. Medium bodied with a lingering bitterness. bootsjohn (68) - Texas, USA - AUG 6, 2012
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. DSG (14784) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - JUL 10, 2012
Bottle sample at a tasting at Ariel’s 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. dagimp (1008) - Philly, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 3, 2012
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!

(This review is for Endeavour.) It’s 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, it’s 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. It’s 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, it’s 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 beer’s 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.

Taste is citrus, pine, booze and bread, with a nice boozy finish. Well done. ronaldtheriot (1934) - Laplace, Louisiana, USA - JUN 24, 2012
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 it’s very good. RJT

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. kramer (6682) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 19, 2012
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. colinize (317) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JUN 7, 2012
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.
