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.

22oz bottle in a tulip. Pours copper/ruby with a thick, cream-colored head. Aroma of a lot of citrusy and floral hops with a good amount of caramel malts. Flavor the same, with a good hoppiness. Smooth texture. A pretty good beer.

Above average. This is the original bottling, not the Endeavour version, so this had some age on it. I had this when it first came out and can say it has mellowed but not by much. The aroma is sweeter and has a floral essence. The color is a clear amber with virtually no head. Smooth, almost oily palate. The flavors have blended well but it has become sweeter with the hops bitterness dropping slightly. Alcohol is still present and the carbonation has lessened a little. Still a good brew.

Tastes perfumey, chewy caramel, grapefruit citrus,peaches, resin, white pepper, and some malt. slightly oily on palate but quite enjoyable

651 ml. bottle. Pours a thick, well retained off white head, with some lacing, over a slightly hazy dark gold (SRM 7) body......nose is resin, pine, grapefruit, toffee/caramel.....taste is medium toffee/caramel sweetness, balanced by pine, resin, citrus peel, finishing with moderate bitterness.......mouth feel medium, slightly sticky, alcohol hidden, carbonation low, slightly acidic. This is a very typicial I/DIPA. It is slightly sweeter than many, but has all the clean refreshing qualities, combined with appropriate complexity in both the malt and hop backbones. BJCP 8/3/15/4/7

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
