COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The color is deep amber with a light, creamy head. The nose starts off with a touch of citrus but then turns decidedly into peaches. 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 peaches, an interesting manifestation of the Columbus, Simcoe and Centennial hops. This is the first Divine Reserve that we have filtered. This decision was made to make the hop flavors brighter, plus it would have been a bottling nightmare with all the hop bits in it. This beer is best enjoyed at 45° or even a little warmer. Though the recipe and style indicate this beer to be enjoyed fresh, we expect this beer to develop interestingly over the years.

Shag (2603) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - SEP 8, 2011
This appearance was an orange color with a white head. The aroma contained citrus mainly oranges with a strong herbal presence. The flavor also contains the herbal notes along with some oranges and lemons. The aftertaste is somewhat bitter. Overall this was ok but not chillin with the big dogs in the style.

(12oz bottle thanks to blutt59) clear medium orange with soapy tan bubbles and nice lacing. Nose of orange, grapefruit, creamy and herbal. Taste of umami, burnt caramel, medium bitter hops, and candied citrus. Nice balance in general, but not amazing.

Suttree (5130) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - AUG 29, 2011
The one thing I noted about this is that it is pretty dry, compared to most Double IPAs. I smelled a little boozy, but that was not really evident in the taste. Very hoppy, though. I liked it.

tronraner (2459) - Walland, Tennessee, USA - AUG 28, 2011
Sample at a tasting at Suttree’s. Pours clear orange with whitish head. Fruity hop aroma with pineapple, tangerine, slight pine, and a hint of alcohol. The flavor is grapefruit, pineapple, and some bitter pine in the finish. Slightly resinous. Not too shabby.

bierkoning (10157) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - AUG 12, 2011
Bottle from ericandersnavy, thanks! Amber color. Malt and lots of peach in the lovely aroma. Malty sweet, peachy flavor. Some oily hops and ripe plums, lingering on in the aftertaste. Hints of perfume. Full bodied and slightly alcoholic.

12 oz bottle. Clear bronze brown with a hilly white head. Nose is pear, peach, pink grapefruit and toffee; kind of unusual. Oily, resiny medium body with a buzz. Taste is orange marmalade, grapefruit pith and bitter grass. Bold with a nice hop bite.

Bottle @ home, courtesy of cavie. Thanks Travis! Red orange appearance with a cream colored head and nice lacing. Nice moderately grapefruit, mildly earthy hoppy nose. Moderately grapefruit hoppy, light earthy hoppy, sweet pale malty flavor. A pretty good, sweet IIPA.

BelgianBeerGal (3138) - Panama City, Florida, USA - AUG 1, 2011
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.
