BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Saint Arnold Brewing Company
Texas, United States
saintarnold.com

Style: American Double / Imperial IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 9.00%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
Same recipe as Divine Reserve #11.

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.

This beer is best enjoyed at 45° or even a little warmer. Though the recipe and style indicate this beer to be enjoyed fresh, we expect this beer to develop interestingly over the years.

Pours a slight amber to orange color, the caramel malt seems immediately noticeable. Soft 1/2" white creamy head. Aroma pops of mostly greenish C hops and Simcoe.

Plenty of bitterness and caramel with this one, this is a PacNW bitter bomb via Texas I guess. Its decent, there is some improvement over the single IPA of theirs I guess. But ultimately its a little more malty and bitter than the overwhelming majority of other double ipas out these days. I can dig it for a little while, but more than 6-8oz at a time seems like an excessive amount of malt and bitterness that I want for a dipa. Pine seems to be the main hop flavor contribution throughout the mouth feel. Hides the alcohol well.

Not bad, put it in a time capsule if it already isn't there from back in the 90s.

12oz can served in a tulip. 17280 is printed on the bottom of the can.

Pours a clear bronze-amber with a biggish tan head and medium carbonation. Smell is very mild -- I get just a little whiff of fruitiness.

Taste is clearly hoppy, with a bit of a jumble of fruit and pine.

Mouthfeel is thick and dry. Overall, not bad.

One of my favorite IPA's. So well balanced and flavorful, it will make anyone a fan of really good IPA's. I buy it whenever I can find it, typically through Tavour.

This is a very good beer. Double-IPA, very hoppy but tasty. The color is so beautiful, "coppery gold" like another person described. I feel like this is the definition of a very good beer (at least for me): "bold and hoppy" (like its label says), very tasty (malty/hoppy IPA), beautiful color and aroma and, last but not least, high alcohol content (9%) that you can't tell unless you read the label. I'm not very good at describing beers with words but I do understand how to appreciate a good beer. Not a good argument but "trust me - I know what I am talking about": this is a very, very good beer. I'm giving it a 4.75 because I bet there's something out there that's a hands-down 5; however, I don't know what I would change to improve this beer (hence it's a 4.75 and not a 4.5). Well, long-story short: if you like hoppy IPA's, you will not regret trying this one!

Very nice, beautiful coppery gold color. Surprisingly moderate carbonation, disappointed that it wasn't more. Sweet at first then the bite of the hops. A bitter finish that lasts and lasts. To me it's complex, you don't need to drink a lot, it's very strong at 9%. Poured into a cheap clear glass from a 2 oz bomber. It's good, you won't be disappointed.

Poured from a 12oz can into a speiglau IPA glass.

Look is a deep amber almost ruby with a big white head.

Aroma is piney with a little orange at the end.

Taste compliments a lot of the aroma lots of pithy orange and and pine very well balanced.
