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.

Reddish pour from draft at Saint Arnold. White head. Fruity and hoppy. Not bad

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

mateuszk (2769) - Poznań, POLAND - AUG 19, 2016
Pours clear and pale amber in colour with nice white head. Aroma of malt, light caramel and some pine hops. In taste medium sweet, malty with strong bitterness. Medium body, moderate carbonation, bitter finish. ABV well hidden, this beer is rally good balanced and lacks maybe stronger kick of hops in the aroma.

3.6
PorterPounder (8359) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAY 2, 2016
San Antonio, Tx - BJ’s - I-10 NW - on tap. Labeled as Edeavor IPA. Medium copper pour, soft, but quickly fading off-white head. Aroma of orange marmalade, a touch of funky feet. Solid, bold full-bodied flavor with some juicy citrus bitterness, some caramel sweetness, a touch of pineapple and mango fruitiness. Solid, thick, rich mouthfeel.

Copper, bright. Has a caramelly and lightly orangey note. Rich chewy and slightly grapefruity character.

3.6
lownote (585) - Austin, Alabama, USA - MAR 11, 2016
Aroma is a strong caramel with some stone fruit like hops. Strong and interesting. Taste is about the same. Quite sweet. Mild bitter. Tastes like it’s been aging. Massive malt backbone. Muted hop flavor, and enough bitter to handle the malt. Big thick body. Very copper color and mostly clear with a lacing head. Tasty. Bitterness lingers for a long while.

3.5
jb (3449) - Rochester, New York, USA - JAN 16, 2016
Nice tangerine nose. Earthy taste along with a soft melon. Very dry finish. Alcohol very nicely stashed. Not much else to differentiate this from the monstrous pack. Oh, right, appearance is decent. Sporadic white lace, clear orange.

3.7
Ron (4260) - Rochester, New York, USA - NOV 12, 2015
Bottle with Erica. This one pours a darker than usual amber color with an off-white head, and no lacing. Nice nose on this one. Orange, lemon and pine notes. Maybe a hint of peaches. Nice taste! Fair amount of bitterness, orange, peach and pine notes. Big malt body underneath, but not too sweet. Nice

motelpogo (8031) - Plzen, CZECH REPUBLIC - SEP 22, 2015
on tap at flying saucer in houston, probably the least impressive of the 20 tap beer i tried that day. pale golden, clear and with a thin head; odd notes of whiskey in the aroma; hints of lemon-scented cleaning products and schnapps; somehow had really lost its edge - surely must normally be better than this

3.9
jsmanigold (127) - Texas, USA - JUL 27, 2015
Pours with a deep amber color with a tan head that dissipates rather quickly. Tastes of sweet malt with light pine and citrus notes. Has an sweet aroma of biscuits and dark fruits.

Nice sweet cereal aroma. Pours with a nice golden amber color. Medium carbonation. Sweet biscuit flavor with a nice balance with the hops. This is a wonderful brew!
