Awhile back the Saint Arnold Brewery announced that they had acquired enough hops to brew their Divine Reserve #11 Double IPA as a year-round offering, and they noted that they would need to come up with a name for the new brew. There was no shortage of suggestions, and I took a look at some arguments for and against a number of them. Then the nomenclature legislature seemed to be in recess until Brock Wagner mentioned during the Santo tour that they had come up with a likely candidate. It was a happy coincidence that a clue should have been given during that democratic night, in which visitors were given the opportunity to vote on which version of the Black Kölsch they liked best, since the brewery has now opened the final naming of the Double IPA to another vote.

Saint Arnold Double IPAThe first choice is the name that Wagner dropped the night of the Santo tasting: Eleven. The more obvious reasoning behind this appellation is that, as mentioned, it was first released as number 11 in the Divine Reserve series, but it also playfully references Spinal Tap, as well as having a certain alliterative euphony with its Single IPA cousin, Elissa. As the polling page states, the label also “contains many subtle ‘elevens’ in it, such as 11 of several items, some more obvious than others.” You can see the various typography in the label background, with the eponymous saint gesturing towards the Texas star, standing in front of a row of hop plants

Saint Arnold Double IPAThe second alternative is one I hadn’t yet heard bandied about. “The name was suggested to us by a NASA astronaut when we asked him for name ideas related to the space program,” the website informs, taking the name “of one of the space shuttle orbiters which in turn was named after Captain James Cook’s ship which explored the Pacific.” This proposed name also shares an affinity with the Single IPA, since Cook’s HMS Endeavour was the same sort of ship as Elissa, a “barque,” based on their sailing rig configuration. The label is truly eye-catching, with the patron saint gesturing towards our sidereal state in front of the terraqueous orb we call home, with the addition of a seaborne tall ship. It also gives a sort of mathematical nod to NASA, calling the style an “IPA²” rather than the somewhat clunkier “DIPA” on the Eleven label, and a sentimental one, considering Houston was snubbed for a retired shuttle.

I revealed my vote on the Santo tasting, but only because it wasn’t an ongoing poll. This time, my vote is cast, but I’ll not divulge – we’ll have to wait until Friday to hear the final winner. As that pithy election-season bumper sticker has it: If you don’t vote, you can’t complain.

Remember to vote here!
