(This review is for Endeavour.) Itís incredibly clear-bodied, but has a dark orange color that screams Double IPA. Its aroma is pretty much perfect for the style, a complex and huge bouquet of earthy, piney, floral, and slightly citrusy hops. Clean, fresh, and bright in the nose, itís really hard to put it down... or take a drink. Drowning your nose in the glass is totally acceptable, and appropriate.
Once in the mouth, Endeavour continues to deliver the hop profile your nose has become accustomed to. Itís full and bold in the mouth with a hint of caramel sweetness. The hopping of this and the varieties used is simply phenomenal. As bold as the hops are, itís body is almost thin and the beer is incredibly easy to drink. The malts that comprise the beer are tame enough to not interfere with what this beerís really about, only adding a sweetness to compliment the hops.
It finishes fresh and clean, and with as much hops that slam your senses, its overall bitterness is relatively low and its finish easy. thedm (6147) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - FEB 18, 2013
This draft brew from the brewery poured a medium sized head of foamy white colored bubbles that were and left behind a softly carbonated transparent golden brown colored body. The deep aroma was hoppy. The mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start and strongly tingly at the finish with a lingering hoppy aftertaste. The strong flavor contained notes of sweet and hops. Delicious and one I would certainly like to have again. bbcd (214) - Austin, Texas, USA - JUN 17, 2013
clear amber, sticky off-white head with moderate retention and a bit of lacing. pineapple, apricot, spruce, distinct mango, caramelized sugar, alcohol, biscuit. very bitter, medium sweet, well balanced. medium-full body, creamy feel, tingly carb, lingering bitter finish. easily one of the better consistently available double ipas ive had. merc7186 (3142) - North Tonawanda, New York, USA - NOV 16, 2013
A: Amer/Orange Hue, Passes Some Light, Thick Amber Head, Decent Lacing
S: Big Piney/Citrus Nose, Grainy Malts
T: Piney, Citrus, Crackers, Mild Malty Sweetness
M: Great Carbonation, Medium Bodied, Semi Drying, Mildly Bitter
Overall, this beer packs a big hop punch to the face, consider the palate fatigued after drinking this big boy. Zer0 (1224) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - FEB 21, 2014
Bottle at THT. Pours clear amber. Aroma is grapefruit, tropical fruit, malts,hops and hay. Heavy bitter and moderate sweet. Full bodied. Awesome balance.

Bomber bottled on 3/4/14. This is a good looking beer. Dark orange/amber pour, nice fluffy off white head. Leaves nice alcohol legs on it. Aroma is big citrus hops, pineapple, orange zest, grapefruit, mango... just amazing. Taste is lots of orange and grapefruit, but a sweet maltiness to take the bitter edge off. Nice sticky mouthfeel, nice dry finish. Thereís a lot to like about this beer, and Iím glad I finally got around to trying it. Bulk_Carrier (6065) - Vermont, USA - MAY 4, 2014
Reviewed from notes. Received in trade.
The appearance was a somewhat hazy golden amber color with a nice less than a fingerís worth of a bright white head that ends up barely leaving any lacing.
The smell - wow - just how the caramel infuses into the citrus and pine hops as eloquently as it does gee weez, wow, as it warms, I do get some light honey.
The taste was a pure bittersweetness that leads on to want to indulge in this beast. Iím trying to sip but seem to be lead on a bit as I canít quite get over the fact how sweet and bitter this rolls over my tastebuds. The aftertaste is perhaps one of the best aftertastes Iíve ever had for a DIPA (uh-oh, Heady and Pliney, what do we got here), sweet sticky yet also somewhat dry finish.
On the palate, it sits about a medium on the body with a decent sessionable aspect showing up, whereís the alcohol in this? Uh....actually, Iím ok with that. Carbonation is absolutely par on for the style and for me as thereís a decent harshness but not overly done.
Overall, whoah, whereís this one coming from? Geez Louise. Texas - eh? Haha, way to go St Arnoldís, if I lived in your distro, I would be stalking for this beer on a daily basis and Iím having this with two months on it. I can only imagine what it is like fresh. Iím jealous of those who get this on a regular basis, but realize its a good jealousy as I would have this again in a heartbeat. swanmann (764) - Nompton, Oklahoma, USA - JUL 21, 2014
Bomber: ENDEAVOUR IIPA - Copper orange color with 2 fingers of off white , dense, lush foam, which settles after a couple of minutes leaving lace. Aroma is nice and juicy, fruity with orange, honey, and pine. The flavor is a nice balance of acidic and bitter, with nice caramel backbone, it finishes with a touch of aspirin dryness. Medium-full palate, slightly slick, soft mouthfeel adequate carbonation, holds up pretty well with warming. Really nice IIPA. dwyerpg (6076) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - SEP 10, 2016
This was pretty good. A nice color, the hops are good and well balanced. Not too sweet. A solid double IPA. carboloader (674) - Houston, Texas, USA - MAR 31, 2011
UPDATED: MAR 29, 2012 Now released as Endeavor. Yippee! From bottle. Pours clear dark amber with medium head. Flavor is tropical fruit, pineapple, apricot, lots of citrus in here. Pine needles and peaches!! Far better than their Elissa IPA which is already decent. Bitterness in the end, but very smooth overall for a IIPA. This is easily the best Saint Arnold brew Iíve ever tasted. Other breweries make one of these on a regular basis. I hope Saint Arnold decides to as well. Their other offerings are average or slightly above. This one is a home run. Way to go Michael Harris! I would buy this as n everyday drinker if they made it...maybe even over Lagunitas Maximus, or at least parallel to it.
