Pouring to a tan hue with the slightest haze, St. Arnold Endeavor has a fragrant bouquet that combines zesty citrus and other fruits along with some biscuits. The head of foam on this beer is exceptional, and its appearance is certain to pique your interest and encourage that first sip.

Tasting this beer, you quickly realize that the appearance, however impressive, was only a warm-up to the delight that awaits. Yes, this beer is big on hops, but it is better balanced than other double/imperial IPA, with tastes of bread, pine, toffee, and caramel backing up the wonderful flavors from the hop trio that includes Simcoe, Centennial, and Columbus varieties. Taste sensations include a touch of grapefruit, orange, peach, and pineapple, with no one flavor dominating.

St. Arnold Endeavor is an exceptional beer in every way and I like it more and more every time I take a sip. It is one of a select group of beers that actually tastes just as good if not better as it warms. I would avoid serving it ice cold because doing so negates the complex flavors within. It is best served around 45 degrees but if allowed to warm slightly, it still tastes very good and some of the complex flavors become even more noticeable.

This beer is sold only in 22 oz. bomber bottles but anyone who has the chance should go out of their way to sample this amazing beer. It is better balanced than other imperial IPA and it isn’t surprising that Endeavor has already won an award at the 2012 world beer cup. I expect more awards in the future and more incredible, memorable moments made even better with St. Arnold Endeavor, the best beer in the St. Arnold lineup.

Poured into a Tulip glass. Dark, amber color. Translucent. Very thick foamy, brownish head. Lacing on the side of the glass is very good. There really isn't an overpowering odor. Citrusy and piney aroma. Piney, hoppy taste up front with strong malty backbone on the end. Very smooth. Almost creamy. Excellent bitter aftertaste that persists for a while. Alcohol is very well hidden. If you haven't tried this, you must. If you don't get St Arnolds where you live, pick one up whenever you are in Houston. You won't be disappointed.
