Kudos for the can.

A: Pours an amber, copper in color with a very small amount of head that fades into a bit of film very quickly. Carbonation seems low. Looks more like an amber ale than an extra pale ale.

S: The aroma is hop dominant with an across-the-spectrum representation of floral, pine and citrus. There is a definite malt presence as well, mostly honey and bread, and some earthiness lingering in the background.

T: The malts shine up front with some bread and roast giving way to a bitter, lemony citrus hop middle and finishing with a mix of the two. Aftertaste is bitter citrus and bread.

M: Light bodied with lively carbonation that prickles the tongue, there isn't much substance here except maybe a hint of chewiness. Goes down very smooth and finishes a bit dry. Quite sessionable.

O: Not quite what I was expecting, it came off more of an amber/pale ale hybrid to me. That said, it was balanced, tasty and quite sessionable. I still have yet to find a brew from Uinta that blows me away, but this is probably one of their better offerings. I wouldn't seek it out, but it would be a nice companion on the trail or during a picnic. Cheers!

Appropriately, this is a very pale straw gold with about 3/4ths of an inch of head. Nice lacing. Aroma offers some nice sharp, grassy hops, though it's a little faint. Good hop flavor, grassy with some citrus, and moderately high bitterness. Malt is very faint. Clean, light bodied, pretty refreshing. Decent hoppy session beer.

Whereas the American Pale Ale had single handedly sculpted America's craft beer culture, Uinta isn't ones to rest on those laurels. They are showing new directions for the style, knowing that reinvention and revamping is needed to keep pace.

This EPA sets the tone similarly to standard APA as an undercurrent of caramel and graham cracker develop early. And as grapefruit and orange citrus character wafts over the nose, a sense of even-keel balance emerges.

And that balance largely stays intact as the hop character intensifies in its sharpness, resinous and bitterness. Eventually the malt sweetness begins to recede and opens up to a ginger-like spice and a sprucy tone to crispen up its taste.

Its evident lighter body becomes a slight crutch as the taste falls largely unsupported in finish, exposing some iron-like mineral quality after the fade of malt and before the crisp and piney closure.

With its extra pale taste and texture, Wyld is a crisper and cleaner taste than is demonstrated by most standard American pale ale, but with such a caramelly balance, I feel that a bit more support is required to carry its taste to its full potential.
