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.

Poured from 22 oz. bomber - bottled August, 2015. That makes this the freshest Endeavour I've ever found on the shelf/had. Wow - this one is awesome fresh.

A: Dark Amber, maybe copper in color. 1 finger head on an aggressive pour - doesn't hang around for long. Nice foam cling on glass after a sip.

S: Sweet malt. Juicy, tropical hops. Mango. Pineapple. Slightest hint of stone fruit. Smells very good and inviting. Smells like it'll be well balanced.

T: Follows the nose almost dead on. Tropical fruits blend incredibly well with the sweet malt I picked up on the nose. A little bready-er than it smells, but not in a bad way. Pineapple comes through. Finishes with a lingering bitterness.

F: Sits nicely on the palate. Great medium-full bodied DIPA. I would say it has a "soft" feel to it, and it slides down smooth and easy. Really great mouthfeel.

O: Great Texas IPA offering. Grab it. Drink it. Enjoy it. GET IT FRESH as possible. Not that it's a bad beer with a little age...it's just an outstanding beer with hardly any age.

Pours well with a nice looking head. Color is a nice deep red/amber color. Has a sweet taste, but not as much hops as I would expect from a double IPA. Feel is great. All in all, a great (but not the best) IPA.

Pours a deep Amber. Not much head. Smells like grapefruit, mango, and pine. Tastes initially sweet like pineapple and nice malt. Immediately taken over by hops. Good mouth feel with sticky resinous quality that finishes dry. Good brew.
