Beer Review: Saint Arnold’s Divine Reserve 11

In Double IPA, Reviews on June 18, 2011 at 1:12 am

Saint Arnold, Texas’ oldest craft brewery has come out with a really great Double IPA, Divine Reserve 11.  This is my first taste of the Divine Reserve series, and I like it. Here’s my review:

Pours a sunset orange with a towering and creamy off white head.

It is fruity, grassy and piney from the hops with some sweet malt in the nose.

On the palate it is creamy and gives off hints of caramel and bready flavors, which fade to dominant grass and pine notes.  There are touches of tropical fruit (peach, mango) that come through, then more grass and pine dominance that holds on through a lasting hoppy finish with some warming alcohol.

This is a bright, floral, grassy and creamy malt treat.  Very drinkable Double IPA.  I really enjoyed this beer.

Style: Double IPA

ABV: 8.9%

Cheers!
