Saint Arnold Endeavour IPA

Saint Arnold Endeavour IPA, originally uploaded by adambarhan.

Appearance: Bright amber gold glass shows excellent clarity. Holds a thin head that is a bit below expectation for a DIPA, but laces nicely.

Smell: Fresh, oily hop cones, all West Coast citric. Grapefruit with a touch of pine, the hops overwhelm any malt character.

Taste: Bitter almost tea like start fades into a sweet hard candy peach before the oily hops soak in for a long slow finish. Nice round profile. Loads of hops, cone, leaf, maybe a bit of vine, they went whole hog.

Mouthfeel: Medium heavy body with a mild chew, lively carbonation.

Overall: A nice IPA.
