2.65/5  rDev -24.9%

12oz : tulip snifter.
bottled: 03/16/12

Fairly clear, golden-yellow. Foamy white head, average retention, nice lacing.

Light bouquet of citric, floral and pine hops.

Citric floral hops, bready, biscuit finish.

Medium light body with average prickly carbonation. Finishes a bit watery.

Fairly average overall, and just a bit disappointing/unimpressive.

3.9/5  rDev +10.5%

Appearance - This is a light, clear yellowish orange in color with a quick white head.

Smell - The dry-hopping is very apparent at the nose. The hops, nice citrus with a touch of pine, are not big but very fresh and noticeable. I'm sure there's some grain in there but I just can't pick it up through the hops.

Taste - The hops surprisingly carry through to the taste, very unusual for a light dry-hopped APA. The grain makes itself known and it is not bad. It's a bit on the raw side but pleasant.

Mouthfeel - This is light-bodied with decent carbonation and a bitter finish.

Drinkability - The light body and fresh but not overpowering hops make this a very drinkable ale.

Pours a slightly hazy orange amber with a medium slowly dissipating white head, some light lacing. Aroma and taste of citrus floral hops, biscuit a malt and some grassy notes. Palate is a medium body with moderate carbonation. Finishes with some biscuit malt , and some citrus and floral hops. Flavor seems a bit light for the style. Overall an ok brew

2.88/5  rDev -18.4%

12oz. bottle poured into a nonic.

(A)- Pours a pale orange color. Produced a small white head of froth, Minimal lace.

(S)- A nice drying pine needle and a subtle yeasty lemon and orange citrus.

(T)- Some lemon and orange citrus with caramel malt. Some pine shows up, but quickly flows into a heavy yeast spiciness.

(M)- A good carbonation level. The balance is fair, but kind of strange with that heavy yeast bit in there.

(D)- Not bad, but perhaps a tad disjointed.

Humble, simple bottles and a nice looking pour lead to a very good first impression; subtle flowery hops, nice carbonation, applesauce and summer... The impression fades quickly with each passing sip until you are left with a granular, watery beer that you just want to finish and get away from. I think this beer would benefit if closer attention were paid to the beer's wyld, extra and ale aspects and less focus was on the pale part.

A- Poured into a pint glass with an apple-juice like hue, deep gold. A white head forms with a nice creamy texture and retains well. Finely bubbled ring leaves spotty lace randomly around the glass.

S- Extra pale ale backbone with notes of light caramel, yeast bread and light fruits. Dry hopping works to add a tiny hint of citrus fruits.

T- The yeast bread and light malts shine through here providing a full backdrop for the other flavors like hops, caramel and apple/light fruit. The dry hops round it out with citrus, herbal and pine notes without adding much bitterness.

MF- Light, crisp body that just has that refreshing feel. It resembles soda a bit but has the right substance to support the flavors present. Light bitterness on the palate.

Dry hopping adds just enough flavor here to make it a good extra pale ale. Another solid Uinta offering that I could pick up anytime and enjoy. Would make an excellent cookout beer or something to gateway people into craft beer with.

3.68/5  rDev +4.2%

a cloudy orangeish yellow body with a thin off white head that displays good staying power and average lacing. taste and smell are bready biscuity malts with some citrus hops in the background. mouthfeel is above average for me. extra driness without the overpowering bitterness. maybe a tad on the thin side. overall its nice, but i dont know that i would buy again.

On tap at Wine 101 in Wake Forest.

Pours a golden orange with little head. The nose is bready, toasty, and has some citrusy hop notes. The flavor is malt forward with a big, bready, biscuity malt character with some underlying notes of burnt toast. The hop character is very citrusy with notes of grapefruit complementing the malts. There is a faint bitterness in the finish, but it's balanced and welcome. The mouthfeel is light bodied, smooth, and crisp.

This is an easy drinking, flavorful, sessionable beer. It's worth trying.

3.35/5  rDev -5.1%

Pours a clear orange with a big, fluffy white head that lingers and laces.

Smells of bready malt, pine, floral hops, and some citrus. Pretty biscuity with a nice, almost spicy hop aroma.

Taste is bready and piney up front with a slight citrus undertone that goes into a slightly astringent middle before ending on a malty pine finish with hints of something....a bit off in the finish, not sure what it is, as it is really subtle.

Lighter body with medium carbonation work well.

I quite like this pale ale actually, really nice, dry, and piney for the abv.
