Closing out the Worthington IPA throwdown. This bottle is a few months old. Clear copper color with a big khaki head and thick lacing. Nice mellow hop scent with sweetness and bitterness. Big flavor that starts hoppy and finishes bitter and malty. The almost 9ABV is well hidden.

Thanks to my mother-in-law for buying me a case. Thanks to KAggie for shipping it to me. Pours a light amber, clear with a whispy white head. Not much lacing. Aroma of sticky citrus and vanilla. Flavor is a little strong and a little sweet. Not overly sweet. Tons of hop flavor. Nice balance between the bitter hops and sticky sweetness. Bitter finish lingers. Actually, a pretty darn good DIPA.
