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.

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.

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.
