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.

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.

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.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass. Reviewed live.

A- Quarter inch retention that fades in 30 seconds. No lacing to speak of. Pale golden color, moderate clarity. Pretty weak looking.

S- Floral hoppiness with light citrusy touches. Hop oil smell that is somewhat acrid. Not very good.

T- The hop oil is strong, it's not even bitter so much as acidic.

M- Medium bodied, smooth.

O- This is a doozy. Not in a good way. Avoid this badboy.

A clear lightish orange golden with a white head that quickly escapes, leaving its remnants around the edge. Bubbles keep coming to the surface. A refreshing aroma of grapefruit and malt mixed with some lemon and grass. Very nice. A sweet, citric flavor to this, very little bitterness at all. Nothing fancy or complex but very nice and enjoyable. Thinner body to this, crisp, with some nice activity from the carbonation. A great sessionable beer here, ideal for the upcoming warm sunny spring and summer days and evening. I will definitely enjoy sitting back throwing a few of these back. Only bought a single this time but will definitely pick up a sixer of this.
