This was poured into a nonic pint glass. The appearance was a hazy burnt orange color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within less than about forty seconds. The smell started off with a burnt caramel malt and a slight toasty effect leading into some crisp citrus to piney hops. The taste was mostly sweet with a slim bitterness running into the toasty malts. Caramel to lingering citrus (bitter) hoppy aftertaste leads into a semi-dry finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a decent sessionability about it. Carbonation finishes decent as an IPA but does have a sly sweetness rolling over my mouth. Overall, for an IPA coming from the west coast, it's decent.

Snow day beer! Can from TJs.

A clear light amber with a dense, off-white head with excellent retention and lacing, this looks great! The nose is a blend of delicious fresh and fragrant tropical and mildly citrus hops with a blend of papaya, mandarins, honey and a mild caramel and toffee note present, this is solid. The freshness and the cleanliness of the hop character really makes the nose. The palate opens with a pleasant bitterness, mildly pine like with a moderate citrus zest and pith bitterness. The mid-palate is both, creamy and mildly sweet, but again, given how fresh and flavorful the hops are, the sweetness is tempered. Mildly sweet, moderately bitter and juicy on the finish with lingering fruit, this beer is very worthy.

boring as all hell. a classic, old school, IPA that should've been brewed back in 1997. Total "meh" beer.

Bottle from Albertsons. Seeing some high scores, and not getting it. Pretty average, run of the mill IPA. Well constructed, drinkable, not overly hoppy. Good, but not great.

650ml bomber poured into tulip 19/8/16

A hazy orange amber liquid, enough clarity to see a couple streams of bubbles feeding a dense thumbs width of foam that hangs around long enough to leave three thick rings

S orange, lemon, pine, some herbal notes, sweet malt, bread, soft caramel, brown sugar, a little malty for the style but still decent

T more pine and citrus, less herbal hops, less malty sugars, a step up on the nose but still room for improvement

M medium bodied, bitter and gritty, soft from the bubbles, heaps of lemon rind with some pine lingering

O one of those beer that I'm pretty sure its fresh but tastes a little past its prime, not bad by any means but missing a little something

OK IPA but not one I'd go looking for, seems a little malty for the style or perhaps not as fresh as could be, bottle dates please!!!

Quite restrained in regard to any pine or grapefruit notes. Reminds me considerably more of an English style IPA rather than West Coast. When drank with that in mind, it's enjoyable but not outstanding. Drinks easy, tastes more like 5 or 5.5 Abv rather than the stated 6.9. Very Good, but not great brew. In general I'm very favorable toward offerings from Worthy...this one, just average.

a touch generic here, especially with the hop complexion, but a very good ipa, classically northwestern in its flavor, nothing out of the box here at all, but they have done a fine job with it. my first beer from these guys overall, thanks to drlovemd87 for the hookup on it. clear brass colored beer with an inch of lasting head on it, shiny in the glass, pretty lacing as it drinks. the nose is nice too, i am pretty certain i smell centennial and cascade above other hops in it, but all of that piney and woody northwestern C varietal character is there, fresh and oily and boldly dosed. considerably less malt presence than a lot of these have, maybe a pinch of a medium crystal, but this is pretty pale and basic in that regard. the hops have a sweetness with their bitterness, and oily quality, very west coast here. i get a little alcohol coming through, even more as it warms, which i think is a little unflattering in a beer under 7% abv, but i like the taste of this rather well, and appreciate the strong carbonation. a good introduction to this brewery, although i am keen to try some of their more unique beers. nothing to make it memorable, but very satisfying ipa nevertheless.
