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.

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.

GAManiac (1944) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - APR 9, 2011
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. Thats 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 Ive 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 its very good. RJT

UXO (1810) - CANADA - FEB 2, 2015
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)

degbert (1771) - Austin, Texas, USA - MAR 31, 2011
UPDATED: OCT 30, 2013 Bottle. Pours a dark orange-red-gold with a fine-grained, off-white head. Huge nose of grapefruit and geraniums, with a touch of resin. Huge hop bitterness on the front, and then an amazingly clean, citrus tingle that is reminiscent of fresh ruby red grapefruit juice and wheat toast. (All I need is a scrambled egg, and its breakfast!) Amazing mouthfeel -- so often DIPAs finish murky, but this one is so clear it rings. Bravo.

Thanks to Kaggie for this haul. My father and UDbeernut were able to enjoy a bottle each. Lightly hazy orange amber Creamy tanish head grows quickly and then stops abrubtly. Nose is strongly backed malts with hop afterthoughts. Nose grows to butter covered malts after it sits a bit. Drippy tight legs. Much like the Snake Plisken tag line in Escape From LA..."I thought youd be bigger....." I said of the body. Hops gently and last and linger but are strangely unobtrusive. Grapefruit with light sugar added...thin finish of malt. A surprisingly subtle brew.
