look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Pours well with a nice looking head. Color is a nice deep red/amber color. Has a sweet taste, but not as much hops as I would expect from a double IPA. Feel is great. All in all, a great (but not the best) IPA.

Pours a deep Amber. Not much head. Smells like grapefruit, mango, and pine. Tastes initially sweet like pineapple and nice malt. Immediately taken over by hops. Good mouth feel with sticky resinous quality that finishes dry. Good brew.

The more of these I drink, the more I like them. Super enjoyable/ drinkable brew at 8.9%. You barely notice the ABV. The hop/ malt balance is excellent, each distinguishable, but in perfect harmony, not opposition.

Not that Saint Arnie is known for being IPA innovators, but as a Texan, I can say this is probably their best IPA offering to date. So good, and a bang-for-buck winner at $6 a bomber.

First thing: WOW, this has a big hop smell which belies the hop flavor in the beer; the hop flavor is much subtler than the smell suggests. Another thing to note, there is not an overwhelming alcohol taste that you get with some other DIPA/IIPA.

Very drinkable IPA. Head is solid with good lacing. Pleasant citrus smell and taste. Not too bitter. Good brew I will have again. Only drawback is the price.

22oz bomber bottled on 12/15/2014 poured into a tulip glass

Appearance: Pours a clear golden Amber with 2 fingers of fluffy white head

Smell: Citrus zest and some earthy hop notes as well

Taste: Full of juicy hops with notes of citrus and pine with malt balancing the finish that is very clean despite the full hop flavor

Mouthfeel: medium and just the right amount of resin

Overall: I have had many DIPAs since first having this and it is still a go-to for me. Full of hop flavor and still maintains it balance. The only problem is that in my opinion this beer falls off very fast so make sure you enjoy it fresh.

I'm going to describe this using what will likely come out oxymoronically. This was an incredibly well balanced Imperial IPA. The thing is it's just a tad less bitter, and the hops used are just that much sweeter than I expected. The result is worthy of at least a snifter, although I purchased a full 32oz. of this, as it was on tap at the location I first tried it. American Doubles are my favorite beer, hands down, so if you don't fall into this description my review is well I'll let you judge its worth. Bottom line if hoppy madness is your thing then you need to try this, not because it's the best, but it is uniquely refreshing.

Picked this up in a trade. Beautiful clear copper-amber pour with a one finger off--white head with good retention and great lacing. The nose is very well balanced and complex with hints of tangerine, pine, peaches, caramel, brown sugar, and tea. The taste follows suit with piney, resiny hops nicely offset by the sweet caramel malt. Hints of tangerine, peaches, orange zest, grapefruit, and perfume. The mouthfeel is oily and chewy with incredible balance and a tangy bittersweet and subtly dry finish. And it definitely improved as it warmed. Overall, this really impressed me. One of the most balanced and drinkable Imperial IPA's I've had in a while. Bold and flavorful and highly recommended!

Drank it straight from the brewery taps.
Amber color with a thick off-white head with decent retention.
Very nice aroma with tropical notes of coconut, passion fruit, pineapples and mild pine.
Flavor of peaches, grapefruit, sweet caramels, toasted malts, tea bags, grass, cola and pine. Dry aftertaste with a good bitterness (it has 76 IBUs).
Medium body with appropriate carbonation. Alcohol of 8.9% abv is very well hidden.
Nice DIPA with good complexity, still as most DIPA could be less sweet.

Saint Arnold Endeavour Double IPA, 22oz bomber bought fresh from my local Spec's Liquor.

Poured overly cold (30°) into a standard drinking glass.

Beautiful bright orange pour emits wonderful piney and grapefruit scents. A heavy dose of malt follows.

Hops dominate the swallow, piney and oily. Citrus and grapefruit are everywhere. Malt balances the sip with heavy bread and biscuit flavors.

Overall this is close to a world class beer. Very drinkable. Almost sessionable except for the 9% abv.

Cheers!!!!!

This is a decent beer out of Houston Texas. I am from Houston so I enjoy St. Arnold's brewery. This beer overall simply average nothing great nothing horrible. I would drink again If I saw it but wouldn't go out of my way to find it.it is worth a try for Texas beer fans.

Fresh bomber acquired via trade; thanks, Tim!

A: Pours a fairly translucent orange, with hardly any head whatsoever.

S: Mild citrus and floral hop tones. Not a Texas IPA expert, but this is probably one of the closer things they have to a West Coast-style IPA or DIPA (along with Community's Mosaic IPA, too).

T: Bursts with flavor, but in a subtle way (if that makes any sense). Caramel-y and hoppy on each and every sip. Taste is most apparent when cold.

M: Moderate carbonation and very light and smooth.

O: Great Texas DIPA that remains balanced and light while still packing a fair amount of hop character and alcohol content. If you can get it fresh, highly recommended.

Received in a BIF from FlyingKelly! thanks for the awesome Texas brews.

Appearance is a medium amber, crystal clear brew. Head doesn't leave for a second. Very pretty. Upon first sip, I thought this was a nice little single IPA ranging around 5.5% very balanced with a malt backbone that would make some stouts jealous. Hoppy character with some dank resinous tones. I like the smell.

Taste. Yep, this thing rules. I could drink this over and over. The lightest hop bitterness of a 9.5% double IPA I've ever tasted. It isn't east coast and it certainly isn't west either. It's a great Texas double ipa.

Totally blown away at how drinkable this double IPA is. Worth seeking out if you're in Texas.

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.

Really just about everything about this beer was a surprise, and a good one at that. For one, I thought I had picked a barleywine out of my beer fridge, but upon popping the bottle it was clear this was no barleywine! Hops everywhere. Great aroma, flavor, perfect bitterness (which was high, but good for this beer), everything just said "tasty."

Mostly what stood out for me was citric and pine-forest hops. Not much malt comes through, so I wouldn't call it balanced, but then IPAs aren't really a balanced style anyway.

Body was medium and pretty dry, overall the beer was very tasty and I'll have to stop by the place where I found it again and see if they have some more.

Update. 3-7-15. Hay Market in Houston. Spectacular overwhelming tap list. If you can't find something here, go home. This one is oh so bitter. I love it. 1000? What a great name.

Aroma was all hops. Grapefruit, resin and a little soapy. Pour was a nice clear burnt orange with a one finger off white head. Taste was OK. A little watery. The grapefruit and resin were very strong. A nice but slight malt backbone weaves in and out. This beer is fitting that it is made in the middle of the country. Has a nice west coast hoppiness, but a noticeable chewy maltiness as well. Turns to water in the finish which was disappointing. Nice carbonation round this beer out.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

22oz bottle from (thanks man!). No apparent bottling information. Served in my Phish snifter.

Pours a hazy orange hued brown with a three quarter finger cream head. The froth fades slowly to a modest halo, leaving a good deal of lace.

Smells outstandingly citrusy with loads of tangerine and clementine. Grapefruit, a touch of bread and some light spicy hop notes. Nice.

As in the nose, tangerines really lead the parade of flavors. Orange zest, grapefruit, pine, bread, sweet caramel malt, some pepper, a little honey and a modest kick of booze. A good mix of citrus hops and sweet malt. Drinks very smooth considering it's almost 9% abv.

Slick, medium full body with medium carbonation. Lingering sweet malt and orangey finish.

A well balanced and quite tasty imperial IPA. Well worth a try for it's pleasantly citrusy profile. Outstanding.

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Aggressive pour yields a three inch slightly off white head. Body is of orange/amber. Great head retention, clumptastic lacing.

Floral/take citrus notes in the nose.

Juicy citrus hops borderlining on dankiness but not quite. Subtle bitterness, very nice. Drinks like its 6.5%abv.

Medium mouthfeel, medium carbonation.

Extremely drinkable IPA outta Texas. Shared with the most beautiful beer drinker ever, fdkayti. Thanks for the Southwest Top 50 tick kojevergas!
