Thankyou Canadianghetto for this!

Poured into my snifter and what a great white head that lingered for a while. Smell of deep citrus and sweet caremel followed by subtle boozines. No touch of booziness is there just a smooth malt build with increasing citrus hops that become more pronounced towards the end. Overall a great DIPA one of my first from the great state of Texas. Did not get to enjoy this beer on the tour was drinking a lot of the weedwacker and lawnmower!

Poured from a 22 oz growler into an oversized wine glass. Deep copper color with thick sticky head that lingers. Made up of tight tiny bubbles supported by little streams from underneath.

Strong piney hop aroma with citrus notes. Flavor follows the nose. Very smooth and well balanced, not overwhelming with some late bitterness that leaves you wanting another sip rather than being turned off. I've had a lot of IPAs with this hop profile that ruin the follow through.

Creamy mouth feel that is thicker than most IPAs and really suits the beer well. All in all a great under the radar DIPA that I'm proud to have from Texas.

Poured from a 650 ml bottle into a tulip.

A: Light brown, with a ruby hue. Pours about a half finger, foamy, white head. Settles quickly, but leaves a ring of foam around the rim of the glass. Slight lacing.

S: Pine sap, butterscotch, a little molasses, and caramel. Buttery almond.

T: Earthy and pungently hoppy. Has a slight fresh flora character, with some buttery sweetness.

M: Pungent on the front end, bittersweet on the finish. High alcohol character is apparent.

D: Sip and enjoy.

Atmosphere is pretty good. Nice hue, solid head, and some slight lacing. Nose is strong combination of bread and earth with a sweet balance. Flavor is earthy and pungently hoppy with a balance of sweetness and fresh flora. Overall, this is a really good quaff.

Poured into a snifter

A: Light amber. A white half finger head that dissipates quickly. Decent lacing.

S: Bring on those piney hops. Some citrus aspects protrude as well.

T: For an imperial IPA, the hops are very smooth with a low grapefruit bitterness. Lemons and light malts even out the taste. Very nice.

M: Medium with medium carbonation.

O: I see why Endeavor is such a popular drink from St. Arnold. Being more of a malt fan, the hops didn't overwhelm me. Endeavor to pick up a bottle or two.

Amidst the beer wasteland of Texas there are some fine craft beers from Austin and Houston. One of them happens to be St. Arnold, who has been at the craft for over ten years. Their double IPA, Endeavor, is outstandiing! Very subtle hop-viscosity on the palate, just the way I like it., reminds me somewhat of a Jailai IPA out of Tampa. Nice bitterness, but just not over the top. Highly recommended!
