St. Arnold Endeavour

St Arnold Endeavour8.9% ABV. Double IPA from the Saint Arnold Brewing Company in Houston, Texas. Thanks to a buddy who brought me back a bottle from his trip out there. The Endeavour and DR#11 (see right of photo) have almost an identical appearance, the notable exception is that the former is obviously filtered, unlike its predecessor the DR#11. Pours a deep amber color with a light, creamy head. The nose starts off with a touch of citrus but then turns decidedly into some grape fruit. 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 citrusy and some mango/peach hints as well, an interesting manifestation of the Columbus, Simcoe and Centennial hops. Medium mouthfeel. Overall a solid DIPA and one I would love to have anytime.
