Year round re-release of DR11. Poured from a 22oz bomber into a Duvel tulip glass to enhance the aroma. Some sort of bottling code on the neck but I couldn't decipher...but I know it's fresh as it was recently released. Was a clear amber color with good carb streams. Had a large foamy head that settled into a thick foam cap (more than in original DR11 review). Good quick sliding lace with a lot sticking (again more than original).

The aroma was solid with grapefruit and other citrus from the start with the pine resin becoming more pronounced as it warmed up. Some malt but this is a hop show. The taste was heavy c-hops with good pine and malt balance to offset. My original review gave aroma and taste 4's but this re-release seems to have been improved and I am now bumping to 4.5s. This is great and went from not in my top tier to now being top tier. Mouthfeel was medium with good carb and a citric aftertaste.

Overall, went from being a good DR11 to a great Endeavour. Near the best for the DR series. Last review noted that something was missing for me but whatever that was they fixed it. Avail here in TX obviously not as full year. Rotation - this will be a huge player in my rotation . [H;Y]

Endeavour is a looker. Orange gold in color with a soft white cap that lasts and laces the glass. Large hop oil slicked bubbles from a deep pour refuse to pop on the surface.

The nose to me should be bolder for an IIPA. Don't get me wrong there is a strong hop presence with gobs of tropical fruit and pine, but an imperial should punch you in the face with hops.

Now this is what I'm talking about! The taste is almost all hops with a start to finish hop bill supported by sweet caramelized malts. Those hops range from tropical to resin and really hit the spot.

Mouthfeel also steps up the pace with complimentary pinch to the mouth full of hop flavors. A good carbonation delivers that tand to every taste bud and makes this a great drinking experience. I'm glad St. Arnold brought this one back. This is a solid beer and one I hope to see again and again in the fridge. I just have to beat my wife to them before she drinks them all.
