look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

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]

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!!!!!
