Style: American IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 7.10%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
Endeavour is a double IPA. The color is deep amber with a light, creamy head. The nose starts off with a touch of citrus but then turns decidedly into peaches. The taste starts off with creamy malt resulting from the pale 2 row and caramel malts and Saint Arnold yeast. The hop bitter starts low then builds to a crescendo, but always maintains a balance even in its big finish. The hop flavor continues to be peaches, an interesting manifestation of the Columbus, Simcoe and Centennial hops.

Smell has a bit of sticky juice - tangerine along with malts and some faint pine. Taste starts with malt and tangerine juice blend then to more of a rind flavor along with lingering pine hops. A very balanced IPA - not overly hoppy. Definitely unique in a good way.

Very interesting IPA. A little surprised at first but the more I sipped....the more I liked it. Very difficult to brew a unique American IPA, but you have one here. Perfect combination of pine and citrus with nice bitter finish. A must try for all Hop Heads!

Golden amber color with a good white head that leaves slight lacing. Lots of pines in the smell. Great balance between hops and malts on this beer, fantstic piney hops. medium body and quite of bit of carbs. Great for the beer. Pretty good balanced ipa.
