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.

L: Very nice pale amber color!
S: Floral smell. Pretty mild
T: Not nearly as powerful as most IPAS. Kinda sweet notes at first. Finishes off with some hoppy bitterness.
F: Medium to light feeling. Nice carbonation on the finish.

This beer actually tastes more like a pale ale to me. Very drinkable & not overly hoppy.
