My second beer from Arizona Wilderness, and this did not disappoint either. Clear gold, foamy white head, burst of citrus, pine and tropical fruits in aroma and flavor. More balanced than I was expecting for 115 ibu with a pleasantly and seemingly simple grain bill. Delicious and love the combination of hops used. Cheers!

I guess Arizona hasn't heard that DIPAs are supposed to be hazy because this is clear golden yellow with 2 fingers of head and thick lacing.
The nose is dank with some citrus and pine. The taste is more of the same. The citrus is orange rind and gets a little more butter as it warms. The pine remains in the background.
The mouthfeel is clean with very little alcohol present-is this really 8.2?
Overall this is very well made in the classic West coast style. So glad I got to try it.

On tap served in a nonic

Color is clear gold with a two-finger white head. Retention and lacing are decent. Smell is wonderful - lots of dank, tropical and citrus aromas all blended together. Can't wait to see if it tastes as good as it smells. Yes, it does! It blends the same complex hop flavors on my tongue as it did on my nose with just a touch of malt as well. Finish is bitter, but not overly astringent. Body is medium with good carbonation. Overall, this is the best beer I've had in Arizona and it ranks up with some of the best in the US.
