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.

Oddly, a little more approachable than their single IPA, which can get a bit sticky sweet. This one has more of a piney note, which I enjoyed, although the booze/sweetness do sneak in at the end. Not bad.

Had a glass at the restaurant after a nice hike on one of the Superstition Mountain trails.

This was a very nice double IPA from reputably the best brewing team in the greater Phoenix area.

Definitely try this if you are a hop head. You will not be disappointed!

I've had three cycles of this so far, and everyone has been consistantly delicious.

A- It's a nice clean look for an IPA

S- Being a hop head I had a field day with all of the grassy, flowery, sunshine and miracle aromas the beer provides. Makes me immediately want to chug it and or get it as a cologne

T- Taste very much like it smells with a wonderful hop first and last taste. Nice amount of alcohol and flavors of everything from sweet to grapefruit to pepper.

M- I can tell you this - it felt good in my mouth, with a light bubbly feel and thin and crisp body

O- Being a huge Stone and Dogfish Head fan I really enjoy this IPA up there with them. Great for almost any meal I love drinking it in the sun (we happen to get over 300 days of that a year here) and just as good from the growler weeks later.

Mom always said if you can't say anything nice don't say anything at all.

This is the opposite situation- this beer is phenomenal. I need to tell everyone.

Major IPA snob here: from Alpine to RR to Double Mountain I've searched out the best IPAs that I could find.

This is one of the all time best.
