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.

Poured a beautiful sunset orange with 2 fingers of fluffy bright white head. Excellent retention. Kept close to two fingers head the whole way down leaving copious amounts of STICKY lacing

Great citrus hop aroma (orange and grapefruit) along with peach, mango and pine sap. Smells extremely fresh and dank as hell. The aroma is very enticing and begs for you to take a sip.

Citrus hop bomb as soon as it hits your lips! The taste follows the nose to the T. Excellent tropical fruits (mangos and papayas), grapefruit flesh along with some dank pine hops and finishes up with a nice peach taste on the end.

The mouthfeel is Fantastic! Smooth, creamy, medium bodied with just the right amount of carbonation. Sticky as hell and goes down so easy! I cant emphasize the smoothness of this beer enough.

Overall, this beer is divine. Saint Arnolds did a fantastic job with this one. They nailed it! One of the best DIPA's I've ever had and quite possibly the best beer to ever come out of Texas. Thank God this is a year round beer now! I plan on keepin my fridge stocked at all times.

Had this beer multiple times before I decided to review it. Bomber poured into a tulip glass.

Poured a wonderful orange with 2 fingers of soft white head. Excellent retention and sticky lacing.

Aroma consists of grapefruit, orange, mango, peach, hops, and pine.

Citrus is overtaking along with some grapefruit, mango. Towards the end, peach and pine hops are present.

Great mouthfeel. Creamy medium body with just the right amount of carbonation. VERY VERY smooth beer.

Overall, this beer is fantastic. Saint Arnolds hit this one on the head!
