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.

hopscotch (10767) - 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!

Big thanks to Kevin for hooking me up with this! Pours a clear deep amber orange with a light tan head that lasts throughout the beer and laces nicely. Aroma has a really nice grapefruit note with a bit of growing pine and a caramel/toffee backing. Flavor has a good amount more of backing sweet grains with some pine hops and just a hint of grapefruit.

BVery (9943) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - JUN 15, 2015
Bomber from Specs - Memorial in Houston, TX. Slightly hazy light orange pour with a white soapy head. Nice citrus and sweet peachy aroma. Little bit of malt sneaking in there on aroma as well. Taste is very similar. Fairly aggressive on the tongue. Good brew. This actually softens up and gets a little fruitier/peachier as it warms a bit.

phaleslu (9716) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 18, 2011
12 oz. bottle via trade with a DLD buddy from Houston- thanks Bryan! Pours a clear, bright amber color with virtually no head. Sweet aroma of citrus fruits, sweet malts, piney hops, and a little boozy heat. Flavor of citrus fruits, pineapple, sweet malts, grassy hops, and pine resin. Medium-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a juicy mouthfeel that finishes resinous and sticky. Solid DIPA.

22 oz. bottle as Endeavour from Specs El Paso split with drsordr. Pours a clear amber color with small off white head. The aroma and flavor have dank, citrus, peaches, a little pith, caramel, toasted malt, moderate bitterness, I dont know how old this is, but it still has decent hop character, I missed this as Divine Reserve 11, but this is decent enough.
