Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a beige/orange color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of pine, some malts. Taste is well balanced malts and hops, a bit of pine, mild bitterness. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall, kind of mild for the style, but an enjoyable beer nonetheless.

Well balanced bitterness, drink it very cold and enjoy.

A great affordable IPA. Very strong hops smell but very smooth. One of my every day beers.

This is an underrated Saint Arnold beer, it is the best year round beer they make (you could make an argument for Endeavor especially since it is now sold in 12oz 4 packs instead of just the bombers which is a better format but Endeavor started as a Divine Reserve limited release).

This is a good sessionable IPA and it kicks ass on cask.

Not overloaded on hops like a lot of IPAs. Fairly sweet up front and then the hops kick in on the finish. Great IPA.
