St. Arnold Divine Reserve #11

CIMG3655

This is the final Texas beer review. Thanks again Ben! St. Arnold’s Divine Reserve series is a different beer every time it’s release. This release is a double IPA, brewed in February and bottled in March, so it’s pretty damn fresh. It features 2-row and Caramel malts with Columbus, Simcoe, and Centennial hops.

Stats:
Double India Pale Ale. 8.9% ABV. 76 IBUs. Texas.

Nice orange color with a head that lasts.

Reminds me of Lagunitas. Lots of hops on the citrus side. Grapefruit and orange are dominated with a substantial pine resin aroma.

Mouthfeel isn’t too bad, but I might like to see it a little bigger.

Floral, citrusy, and piney hop flavors just dominate the palate, and won’t let go. You’ll be tasting this beer for seemingly hours. It’s got a really floral thing going on drizzled with honey and grapefruit everywhere.

This is damn tasty. It’s got tremendous length and it’s a hop bomb, but doesn’t destroy the palate with IBUs. 92 points.
