Cervesa molt aromàtica, en boca hi ha un gran equilibri entre maltes i llúpol que li aporten un toc dolç i un amargor més baix.

Bottle shared by CLevar. Clear golden brown pour, a little carbonation and an aroma of sweet piney hops. Flavor is a very sweet syrupy honey/hops and lingering hops. Decent beer. mikem409 (2025) - bloomfield, Michigan, USA - MAY 22, 2012

12oz bottle from Ecrassipes.
Pours deep, crystal clear amber with a big thick beige head that recedes slowly and leaves excellent lacing.
The aroma is excellent on this one with tons of juicy citrus, especially grapefruit and pineapple. There is also some resinous pine and caramel malts but the citrus is the star in the nose.
The taste is fantastic as well. Lots of citrus fruits with pineapples and mango coming to mind but the floral pine is stronger in the taste than in the nose. The finish is bitter with a bit of alcohol heat.
The mouthfeel is well-carbonated but maybe a tad thin for a DIPA. That’s probably the biggest drawback to this beer. I little more body and this could be an outstanding beer.
Still, this is one great beer and the best thing I’ve had from SA since Divine Reserve 6.

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

Pours clear pale amber with two fingers of rocky white head, good retention and lacing. (4/5) Nose is pithy citrus, tropical and stone fruits, mild pine, light caramel malt. (8/10) Taste is moderate sweet, moderate to strong bitter. (7/10) Medium to full body, moderate carbonation, building bitter finish. (4/5)
Very pleasant, mild-mannered and well-behaved DIPA. The sweetness is definitely present, but balanced nicely without being overwhelming. The balance extends to the ABV, which is nearly completely absent despite being nearly into the double digits. (15/20) jhamp9 (1860) - Corinth, Texas, USA - APR 8, 2012
