Just wanted to say, HOOKEM HORNS!

This beer is seriously good!!! The hops are tropical in the true sense, not overwhelming and cloying. The beer finishes dry, especially given the stiff malt backbone. Lacing is epic, clarity fantastic, can't get much better. This rivals MANY west coast IPA's I've had. Truly fantastic. Trade or travel for this; it will be worth it.

When Saint Arnold released their extremely limited 11th Divine Reserve in late March of last year, beer nerds and the curious alike flocked stores and snagged whatever their limits (typically only a couple six packs) of this beer without even tasting it. By the time I chilled a bottle of DR11 and rushing around town that same eventing to snatch another sixer, they were all gone. So you can imagine the elation around Texas when Saint Arnold announced they were not only re-bottling DR11 but making it year-round and in a 22oz bomber.

Endeavour is one of the best Double IPAs I've ever had and in my humble opinion, it truly may go down as one of the best beers any Texas brewery has EVER produced. It's that good. The orangey/amber colored beer is fruity (peach, mango, satsuma, grapefruit, and pineapple) with strong piny, floral and very slightly dank/cannabis nose, some earth, lemon basil leaf, all packaged with apparent bitterness and wrapped around sweet malty flavors of toffee and caramel then finishes again with sweet citrus and stone fruit.

Outstanding and will soon be (if they stay the course and change nothing) a world-class Double IPA that truly rivals some of the best of its style, truly a very proud Texas achievement. Drink this very, very fresh.

Texas pride aside, I had this side-by-side, Pliny the Elder, Surly Abrasive, and Heady Topper with a couple friends and Endeavour attracted amazement from each of us on how this beer not only compared but was better in some respects to those others. Pliny had the complexity of hops and clean, crisp snap but Endeavour edged out on the balance and drinkability while having a nice complexity. Abrasive and Heady Topper compared most to Endeavour.

"Divine Reserve 11" has come back to life! Am I dreaming? Is this really a regular run beer now? I can't stop buying it because I may have found "THE ONE". Where to even start evaluating this beer? The HOP complexity is GENIUS. I think I will have to drink a few more to give it the review it deserves.
