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 35,5 cl. Courtesy of blutt59. Pours a clear deep golden with a small off-white head. Intensely citrusy hop aromas - massive hops. Medium body, fruity and spicy with the heavy and almost herbal hop load returning leading to a very bitter finish. Fairly classic DIPA. 220611

bottle thanks to BgThang. Pours amber with a medium white head. Aroma is boozy with lots of citrus and dank hops. Flavor is big and boozy as well with lots of hop character but the bitterness seems very light and lacking.

hopscotch (11077) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUN 17, 2011
Bottle… Mostly clear, dirty orange ale with a small, creamy, white head. Great retention. The nose is a tropical and citrus fruit medley – pineapple, mango and grapefruit are front-and-center here. Full-bodied with a thin mouthfeel and stinging carbonation. Caramel and toffee malts are rich and flavorful, but they take a back seat to a bounty of fruity, juicy, bitter hops. Finishes grapefruity, bitter, and then dry. Bottle courtesy of BgThang!

Thanks to markwise for the share. Pours orange with smells of caramel, and citrus. Flavor is similar that stayed on the palate for a while, it was really good.
