Courtesy of some super generosity from cfh64.

a - popped open the bottle and filled my captian lawrence tasting tulip. Beer poured a deep transparent orange with a finger of white frothy IIPA-ish head. Even and steady carbonation could be seen throughout. Nice lacing as well.

s - as soon as I held the glass to my nose I felt joy. Sweet resiny hops. Really nice...really well balanced...really what I look for, not over the top. Some citric notes and other usual suspects for the style.

t - a bit more sweaty and bitter than I had expected, but quite good. Hop forward and quite good. Good sweetness. Fruity even. My wife took a few sips and proclaimed apricot, but I challenged that with grapefruit and she agreed. She then wanted to swap out her Monster Ale for this beer...NO DEAL HOWIE!

m - bittery aftertaste, medium bodied...even carbonation.

o - overall, very impressive DIPA. The hop flavoring is very well balanced and not in your face...really perfect level of sweetness. Super excited that I got to try this one, it really flies under the radar.

12oz bottle from Whip In in Austin for $3.99. Poured into a small snifter.

Appearance (4.5): A perfectly clear, dark orange / copper pours with about two fingers of off-white head. Lacing completely coats the top of the glass when the head dies to a very thin layer with a patch. The lacing isn't as thick further, down but there are some additional patches.

Aroma (5): The first sniff is of intense citrus flavors; very Hopslam-esque with the strong passionfruit scent. Pineapple, grapefruit, and passionfruit dominate the nose. A bit of sweet, light crystal complements the sweet juicy, fruity aromas.

Taste (4.5): Not as impressive as the nose and a bit boozy at first. The caramel is more forward, that comes first with a bit of sweetness and ethanol, followed by the passionfruit profile of the nose. A floral citrus comes through in the middle and remains through the finish. The caramel comes through just a bit here as well to provide some backbone, but it's mostly an afterthought. There is a moderate bitterness that starts at the beginning but really picks up in the finish. It is well balanced with the slight sweetness. The finish is very floral and borderline perfumish with a very strong, lingering grapefruit / passionfruit.

Mouthfeel (3.5): Although there is a slight residual sweetness, it is still a bit thin, especially at the beginning. It is a bit fuller in the finish, with the big, floral, lingering notes. The body is medium and the carbonation is medium. It is particularly oily and floral, particularly in the finish.

Overall (4.5): This is a great DIPA. I didn't know what to expect, as the Elyssa was very meh for me, but this one knocks it out of the park. It has a bit of sweetness, but just enough to balance the medium high bitterness. The floral, fruity notes are outstanding and linger seemingly forever. This one really sticks with you.

Another beer provided by my personal beer supplier exiled. Thanks again Jason. Split into to tulips.

A: Golden orange hue. Maybe a half finger of white head. Soapy lace remains.

S: Nice citrus hop burst. Plenty of grapefruit and sour oranges. Just a hint of malt.

T: Great citrus flavor profile. The hops are abundant yet smooth. Almost no harshness at all. I like that in my hop bombs.

M: Medium creamy body with mild carbonation.

O: Nice and tasty DIPA. I could drink more than one no problem.

Pours like apple juice with a small head and bubbles. Smells like a tangle of malt and hops. Maybe a bit of citrus in the nose. Nothing too exciting. Malt forward beer with some slightly citrus hops adding a touch of generic bitterness. It's really out of balance. Think of it as a malt bomb that is bitter. It doesn't come together like most DIPAs. Actually, think if you way over hopped a very light doppelbock and you'll get an idea of what this is like. In addition, I get a hint of off flavor - bandaid. Mouthfeel is pretty heavy and sticky sugary, like the doppelbock. At best, this is a generic DIPA that is pretty smooth and isn't BAD. I feel like I am drinking a different beer from others who have reviewed it.

Pours a slightly hazy orange. Almost no head. A nicembit of lacing. Smells divine. Ha ha. A nice piney grape fruity hop profile. Bitter sweet. Tastes sharp and hop forward. Tons of bitterness from the hops. Very solid. A nice lit but full mouthfeel. Overall incredibly tasty!

Received as part of a trade. Thanks adam320!
Poured into my Captain Lawrence glass.

Appearance: Pours a deep goldish orange with a one and a half finger off white head. Lots of active carbonation bubbles. Head is creamy and sticks around for a while.

Smell: Big hop aroma off the bat! Fruity citrusy hops.

Taste: Follows the nose with those big fruity citrusy hops. Nice malt backbone it balances it out without stepping on the feet of the hops. The bitterness is there but its really not too bitter.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied. Carbonation seems to play a minimal role. Slightly sub par for the style but certainly not bad.

Overall: So glad I got the chance to try it. Will miss the 6 pack when it is gone.

Appearance. Pours a clear copper-orange with a finger of sticky looking, slightly yellow head that lasts a couple minutes and leaves some bands of lace.

Smell. Huge grapefruit, pine, and papaya with some pineapple and a little caramel and grain. Smells awesome.

Taste. Massive pine sap and yellow grapefruit rind! Tropical fruits like pineapple and mango come through in the middle. Some toasty grains and caramel. Finishes with some grassy, piney bitterness. Alcohol is well hidden.

Mouthfeel. Medium body with smooth medium carbonation.

Overall. This is some awesome stuff. An exemplary DIPA.

HUGE thanks to JayAre46 for sending this one!!

Thanks to ericandersnavy for hooking it up. Poured into Rochefort 10 tulip.

A - Pours a copper/rusty color, cream-colored head, nice sticky lacing along the sides of the glass. After the initial pour, there's a nice thick ring around the glass and a thin cap.

S - Sweet dank hops, smooth bitterness, nice tropical fruits, pineapple, pears, mango. The bitterness and sweetness work wonderfully together.

T - Tropical fruits, smooth boozy alcohol, bitter hops, caramel malty sweetness. The alcohol is there, but it's masked by the fruity sweetness and bitter hops.

M - Light to medium, good carbonation, oily finish.

O - Not a hop bomb, but smooth bitterness and sweetness working together. An excellent DIPA, and probably the best beer I've had out of Texas and right up there with Live Oak Hefe and JK Black Metal as "best of TX" for me. Glad I still have an extra bottle to drink here in the very near future. Recommend.

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a pint glass. No dating info but it's a one-time release and I got it the day it hit DFW so it's fresh. Was a clear amber color with good carb streams. Had a large foamy head that settled into a small foam cap. Good quick sliding lace with a little sticking.

The aroma was grapefruit and other citrus 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 and pine with some good malt balance. Good but not in the top tier for me. Mouthfeel was medium with good carb and a citric aftertaste.

Overall, a good ADIPA and a good entry in the DR series but falls into the middle of that pack for me. This is the 4th I've had over a couple weeks and I can pinpoint it but something is missing for me. Still good and definitely worth seeking out but not outstanding like 5 and 6. Avail here in TX obviously. Rotation - could only score 12 this time around and sent 6 of those to ummagum. If I found another six on a shelf I'd buy for sure but I wouldn't go driving around looking for it. [O;Y]

Thanks to wagenvolks for sending a pair of these bottles my way. Served in a Captain Lawrence tulip.

Pours a clear light copper color with a short white head and a bit of spotty lacing on the way down. The aroma has a bit of piney hops and some slight resin. A bit of an earthiness to it as well. Some malt sweetness hits in the end as well. Touch of alcohol. The flavor is too balanced, with the ledger tipping in favor of the malt. Too much sweetness and caramel push down the nice hoppiness, which is slightly earthy and floral. A bit of alcohol in the finish, along with a mix of bitterness and sweetness. Overall, way too much malt. Hops even begin to take a back seat to the alcohol.

On Cask @ Freetail Brewing Co.

A - Pours clear copper to amber in color into my Mug with about a finger of head that has really great retention and nice sticky lacing.

S - Pretty intense hop bomb, sweet citrus of grapefruit and orange, as well as earthy pine and resin, really nice blend. Sweet caramel malts linger in the background.

T - Hops are just dancing all over my taste buds and literally making my mouth water, which is one of my favorite qualities in a beer. Lots of citrus, grapefruit, orange, lemon zest, pine and resin, subtle sweet caramel malts hold it all together and balance it out, delightful bitterness lingers on the palate with almost zero alcohol presence.

M - Medium to heavy in body and sticky on the palate.

O - Really enjoyed this one as I have begun to stray away from DIPA's these days. Nice to have an opportunity to try the cask version, more aggressive on the back end than right upfront.

It was nice to find this in Texas on a recent trip. I was able to bring a few back to the windy city; 12 ounce bottle poured into a snifter.

A: A perfect golden amber in color with a 1.5 finger slightly off-white head that has excellent retention and lacing. This is what a DIPA should look like.

S: There’s a big bouquet of mostly citrus hops here. Also a bit of earthiness mixes with the orange peel and

T: The taste is dominated by lots of bitterness up front. There’s a little bit of mango/orange in the middle, but then the finish is earthy/chalky bitterness. This is a very enjoyable flavor, but not quite as balanced as I would like.

M: The beer has a nice viscosity, slightly on the thicker side, and a perfect level of carbonation. The aftertaste leaves a little to be desired as it sits on the tongue.

O: Overall, this is an excellent example of a DIPA, although the lack of balance in the taste is what separates it from the highest tier in the style for me. Nice work though by Saint Arnold’s!

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into my Duvel tulip. Opened a bottle of this last weekend and loved it, opening another tonight to review.

a - Pours a transparent orange amber color with one finger of off white head and moderate carbonation evident. Leaves some nice lacing on the glass, and one inch of head throughout the drink.

s - Smells of citrus hops, grapefruit, tropical fruits, light pine hops, honey, sweet fruity malts, and light caramel malts. Lots of nice hops in the smell and a lot of fruit; I really loved the smell.

t - Tastes of citrus hops, grapefruits, caramel malts, fruity malts, pine hops, tropical fruits, earthy notes, and honey. Some light bitterness but not much. Lots of fruits and hops again, very enjoyable.

m - Medium body and moderate to high carbonation. Smooth body with a tiny bit of bitterness. Nice, but a little bit too carbonated.

o - Overall this is a really great DIPA. The smell is outstanding with a lot of tropical fruit and citrus hops, and the taste follows suit. Not a lot of bitterness which surprised me, but it made it very drinkable. A little less carbonation and this would have been amazing. Glad to have another bottle of this one, would definitely like to get more.

Poured into a Duvel tulip glass

Appearance: Orange-copper with about two fingers worth of white head. The head eventually dies off and leaves a thin lacing on the top of the beer.

Aroma: Wow. An excellent blend of tropical fruit, grapefruit, citrus, and pine. This is one of the best smelling DIPAs I’ve ever had. The aroma is very well blended; there is no single smell dominating the others. I spent about the first 10 minutes just sniffing this one.

Taste: Well balanced between the bitterness derived from the hops to the sweet caramel malt. I’ve had DIPAs that were bitterer and some that are sweeter; this is a very nice balance between the two.

Mouthfeel: Surprisingly drinkable for a beer around 10%, dangerously so. Almost a little over carbonated, but it adds to its refreshing nature.

Overall: I honestly was not going to buy this beer until I started hearing reviews from people so I decided to grab a 6 pack. I’m glad I did, I even had to grab another. It is a great DIPA and I would be happy if SA turned it into a seasonal beer.

A crazy couple of days for me, i came home late tonight and immediatly popped this one open, poured into a pint glass.

Poured a crystal clear orange amber with a huge pillowy frothy head. This faded in a few minutes and left behind a swirly film just barely covering the top of the glass. There was really no lace on the glass, and this is the only reason to know the score on appearence to a 4. The smell was off the hook! Deep citrus, grapefruit, and pinapple mostly dominated this one. Hint at maybe some apple? Warmed to reveal hints of pine nuggets which smelled like gold! Beuatiful full wonderful IPA smell, this is how I would want it to smell if I could make my own, wonderful! The taste, ahh where to begin with the taste. Hop Heaven! this was exactly the way I wanted it to taste. Fnatastically dominated by the citrus hops. Pineapple, grapefruit, tangerine, and very very sweet. Not one, even remote hint at alcohol, which for 10%abv, is no easy feat. Big dry hopped finish rounded this out perfectly. I really could not have asked for this to taste any better. Extremely smooth, crisp, clean. Carbonation was perfect, no hint at oily, slick, or watered down taste. Such a sweet, sweet taste. Just gold.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.5

Pours a translucent light bronze with a 1-finger yellow head that quickly dissipates. Lacing is minimal.

The smell is strong of grapefruit with wet, piney hops. Taste is citrusy--grapefruit and lemon hops--along with pineapple and other tropical fruits, pine, and caramel. The mouthfeel is carbonated, acidic, oily, and medium-bodied.

This is a very good DIPA. I would recommend drinking it fresh, but with the significant pine and caramel characteristics, it could be interesting with a little age on it. This would go great with cheddar or Gorgonzola cheese.

Translucent dark amber color, with a very light tan finger and a half of head and a bit of lacing. Retention is not bad.

Pine and juicy citrus hops abound. It's not in your face, but its nice. There's a very nutty, caramel, candy corn-type malt character in the back.

Tastes very nice. Big notes of citrus fruit, a little grapefruit. Bitterness is intense, but not harsh. Nice caramel malt backbone finishes it up.

The feel is mildly crisp, creamy, slick/oily, medium in body.

Overall, quite a nice DIPA from St. Arnold.

The last time I went to my usual place I wasn't even thinking about Saint Arnold's Divine Reserve No. 11. I'd read on BeerAdvocate enough how difficult finding the beer is so in my mind I was already content with not finding it. Then, to my shock, my name was called by the manager - yes, the manager knows my name! - and he told me sweet words. He told me that he had some Divine Reserve No. 11! I immediately told him that I wanted some. Now it's time to see what all of the hype is about.

Out of the bottle the Divine Reserve No. 11 poured a clear bronze, like the bronze bell on my bass trombone, and formed a two finger tall foamy-bubbly off-white head that leaves a bit of lacing after taking sips from it.

Call me crazy, or don't because this description is accurate, but the beer has an aroma of the pine forests of southeast Texas. The hops are very earthy floral, and add a sort of lemon-citrus zest. Fruits that show up are mango and pineapple. Sweet caramel malts show up and it's a little boozy too.

I love the hops in Divine Reserve No. 11. They are prevelant throughout the tasting: First with bitterness and later with the lemon-citrus zest. The pine tree sweetness that I love in some pale ales comes out and balances the beer out along with the caramel sweetness and breadiness of malt. The fruit flavors of mango and pineapple are strong but lovely. It's definitely a very hoppy beer, one for hopheads to love, but it's not overly bitter.

No. 11 has a medium body with medium-light carbonaton and is a bit sticky at the end. Although this is a very hoppy beer it is definitely one of the more drinkable double IPAs you'll have, even with a higher ABV and doesn't sacrifice flavor for drinkability. I wish it didn't cost so much but it's definitely one of the better brewed Texas beers. Yum!

Poured from a 12oz. bottle into a Saint Arnold pint glass... it's a clear amber color with a large bubbly white head. Great retention but not a lot of lacing.

It has an extremely hop-forward aroma, with a nice blend of grapefruit and pine smells. There's not much else there, but it's still pretty appetizing.

The taste is more of the same... not much malt but a lot of hop deliciousness. A hophead would love this one, someone that's not big hop fan would probably be a little put off, but hopefully someone that's not a hop lover would not be buying double IPAs!

It's a little thin in the mouth, and the hops produce a pretty strong bitter aftertaste. I like it, but it doesn't quite live up to the incredible hype/demand that these Divine Reserve releases receive.

12 oz bottle poured into a tulip. Thanks Phatatut!

Pours a clear, filtered bright copper color with a fluffy, yellowish-tan head. Average retention and little lacing.

Aroma is extremely piney and fresh, no solvent or off notes, with a strong caramel malty presence. Not overly complex, but very pleasant.

Flavor has a strong bready and caramel malt body throughout balancing the aggressive hop bitterness. Pine dominates like the nose, though there is slightly more complexity here with some light pineapple and other tropical citrus flavors.

Mouthfeel is slightly thin for the style and flavors. Lighter side of medium with light fine carbonation. Finish is very dry and slightly resiny; again breadier than I'd expect.

Minor complaints aside, this is a good beer and could be great with a slightly bigger body. Easily one of the better DR's and an impressive DIPA.

My second go-round wit D11...both times at the Home Field Grill in Round Rock. First on tap...this review in bottle.

Very pretty looking beer, poured into an unchilled goblet...good touch by the waitress. Dark amber...excellent, sticky head that left a lot of lacing through the drink.

Sweet, tropical fruits, some pine...mostly sweet malt though. Did not smell as fresh as the #11 I had on tap about 2 weeks ago though.

Yummy. Such a good mix of sweet malt and bitter hops, mixing in cantelope, pine, orange...this beer should be brewed year round god-damnit!

A top notch DIPA, not on par with Maharaja in my opinion, but an excellent example from the DIPA style. A bit pricey, but worth it.

on tap reviewing from notes blah blah
I was expecting a over hyped typical Divine Reserve brew, this brewery is on my $h!t list for sure....little did i know.

A - poured into a 512 pint glass, Amber orange color transparent, the bartender was able to get 2 fingers of soapy head served at a dismal 32 degrees, I said "hey tina, I once bit a kid to death" she said "why" i said "he served me a dormant slow motion souless beer" we lived happily ever after... as the head recedes can we say STICKY ICKY, Jesus Christ its like the bubbles were afraid of the bottom of the glass. not a lot of rage from the carbonation. So I let out a random scream.

A - An absolute blast and assault on the nose of hops up front with citrus blast, super pine thrust, grapefruit shock and the green power ranger. Sweet sweet caramel malts battling it out with the hops but its like a worm fighting an eagle. citrusy mango comes in and leaves for an awkward moment.

T - sweet malts, less pine thrust but the citrus blast ranger is coming HOT, caramelized sugars are still there but the bitterness just comes over like a hail storm of hop cones, wow saint arnold your beer finally deserves the title, this is divine, i can say this beer is 60/40 on the balance spectrum hops/malt respectively, the finish has a great bitterness unmatched a little heat present.

M - medium body very creamy mouthfeel, light carbonation, expected more but it's not a knock, it still stabs the palate with its bitterness...will give extreme hop breath, i coughed and green flames of God rushed out slaying all in front.

O - if walt kowalski were a beer he would be Divine Reserve 11, if you don't drink DR, then fuck you. The problem i have is this beer should be an annual release, get a clue SA. Godspeed

Poured from bottle into Duvel tulip. Thanks to criswilkes33 for the trade for this.

Honey colored with an off white 3 finger head.

First smell is of strong pine hops and a good whiff of citrus, as it warms I smell more grapefruit and malts.

Taste follows smell, first taste is big piney hops and citrus rind, as it warmed the sweetness of caramelized malts comes through. The tastes are there, just does not meld as I expected.

The mouthfeel is the drawback for me on this beer, it is a little too much on carbonation than I like, and a little oily from the hops probably.

Overall a good beer, but I am spoiled with Pliny. I would definitely buy more and drink it.

A - Golden copper with a thin cap of off-white foam. Smattering of lace left on the glass.

S - The perfect DIPA nose in my book. Big notes of citrus and tropical fruits with the tropical coming out on top. Just a hint of sweetness mixes with the fruity aromas. Lots of pineapple, grapefruit and a hint of lemon zest.

T - Surprising caramel sweetness initially quickly overcome by a resinous citrus fruit bitterness. Lots of grapefruit and even a hint of tangerine. Biting bitterness throughout the drink.

M - Medium bodied and rather sticky. Alcohol is asked very well and I feel it really hits the DIPA standard well.

O - An excellent DIPA. Worth $16 a sixer? Probably not. But I enjoy DIPA's wherever I can get them and coming from a Texas brewery is great.

thanks to cwolffman, and to my brother for sending me some of this.

A: pours out a clear, amber with an off white head that left lacing down the glass.

S: mostly citrus hops in the nose. i also get some piney notes. it has a great hop aroma. there is some caramel in there as well.

T: lost of citrus hop flavors. I get a grapefruit, as well as some peach and melon. there are hints of grass and pine. touches of caramel and straw. it finishes off bitter and dry.

M: it has a nice medium-thin body with a good amount of carb.

O: a very good DIPA. I could drink this all night too.
