Looks like it says 051713 on the bottle so almost 2 months old.

A: Pours a clear amber with a big fizzy tan head. Head fades slowly with great retention. Nice thin splotchy lacing everywhere.

S: Lots of resinous and grapefruity hops in the nose. Noticeable Simcoe. Decent pine too. Yummy.

T: Oh yeah. Big grapefruit up front with quite a bit of pine and resin backing it up. Kind of a dry crackery malt in the finish. Decent hop bitterness on the back end with mostly pine here. Drying resinous and sticky aftertaste.

M: Nice medium body, smooth. Quite dry, almost unusually so with that crackery malt lending to the perception. Like the malt is comprised of saltines, basically.

O: Tasty DIPA for sure. Nice blend of hops with pretty equal footing, though the grapefruit definitely stands out initially. Very dry crackery malt leaves it dry and bitter. Clearly well attenuated which accentuates this effect. I enjoyed it a lot.

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.

22oz bottle into a Delirium Tremens tulip while streaming the new Mars Volta album, Noctourniquet.

Pours a mottled, rocky inch of taupe head that quickly settles to a thin wisp of bubbles and splotchy lacing. Beneath, the body is aglow with a fiery copper hue. Brilliantly clear and punctuated with a few trails of carbonation. The nose is bursting with ripe tropical fruits: mango, pineapple, starfruit. Bits of piny hops in the background with a succulent booziness. Malts smell a tad thin, but it's a minor knock.

Saint Arnold blasted it out of the stratosphere with Endeavour (pun intended). They dialed back the harsh bitterness and booziness that Divine Reserve 11 had, all the while keeping the hop flavor very much alive and very much delicious. Don't get me wrong, this IIPA will still wreck your palate, but it's a refined aggression that balances superbly with gummy alcohol esters and loads of piny, fruity, resinous hop juice. Mouthfeel is medium in body and the carbonation is tight and zesty on the tongue. I am so incredibly happy to have this beer available year-round in Texas. And for the $6.50-a-bomber price point, I might just make this my go-to IIPA when I need a hop fix. Great job, Saint Arnold!

Poured into a Dogfish Spiegelau glass. Bottleneck says 032013.

A- Pours a medium amber color with a 1/2 inch off-white head that retains well before making its way down to an 1/8 inch head. Fluffy, resilient lacing clings to the glass.

S- Piney/citrusy hop aroma with some cereal grain sweetness to round it out. Slight alcohol fume.

T- Restrained bitterness makes for a balanced flavor profile with the hops and malt equally contributing. Alcohol is subdued which ups the drinkability.

M- A bit dry with moderate carbonation and a medium body.

O- Pretty solid throughout. Nothing to write home about, but I would definitely visit this one again given the chance.
