3.63/5  rDev +2.8%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Poured from 12oz can into a pint glass.

Appearance: medium golden hue with a touch of haze and a moderately strong effervescence. Head is a finger of frothy ivory foam. Not bad at all!

Smell: a bit dry with a definite graininess. There's an earthy, noble hop quality here. Overall, perhaps not my favorite, but not bad.

Taste: very grainy and dry with a little bit of biscuity character that I don't love. Hops, again, are earthy and noble, and bitterness is good for the style. It's not bad, but again, something about the biscuit and the grain don't work perfectly for me.

Mouthfeel: medium-light body with a very good level of carbonation and a springy, satisfying creaminess. I like it.

Overall: this is a pretty refreshing and drinkable beer, although it isn't perfect. I really do like the quaffability here, though; it could be a good barbecue beer.

Trying the Wyld EPA and it is light and refreshing. The beer poured a slightly cloudy orange with decent white head that is leaving a spotty lace. The smell has fresh slightly grapefruity hop. The taste is bitter through the entire draw, but comes off the pallet nicely. There is a subtle citrus present. The mouthfeel is lighter in body with good carbonation. Overall the beer is a good session ale.

Boy this beer seems to be all over the place!
Extra but it's ABV is like a session ale. Aggressively hopped yet under 30 IBU.

Here goes!

A - As expected on the lighter of amber browns. More yellow or orange with a 1/4 inch of head and sticky lacing.

S - Smells moderately hopped with pale malts and a good level pf sweetness.

T - Well it's a pretty good session ale I give it that. A nice bit of hops and then some sweet malts. Very drinkable not sure of the hate.

M - Well duh it's gonna be light. Freaking 4% ABV!

Overall I didn't like the Barleywine but this session ale is pretty nice.

3.7/5  rDev +4.8%
look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Strong aroma is quite hoppy and piney, with a hint of citrus, more like an IPA than a "regular" pale ale. It pours a typical but still appealing clear amber with a decent off-white head that leaves some good lacing. Flavor is quite hoppy with a malty undertone and hints of caramel and sour citrus. Texture is smooth and somewhat fizzy, leaving a nice hoppy tingle. You can just about taste the wilderness.

Serving type: on-tap

3.9/5  rDev +10.5%
look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

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.

O - Ok flavor but the mouthfeel really holds it back.

12oz Bottle from the Wegmans Dewitt NY for $2

Appearance - Clear gold colour with a large size frothy and fizzy white coloured head. There is an average amount of carbonation showing and there is some good lacing. The head lasted for around 5 minutes before it was gone.

Smell - Malts, caramel, hops, grapefruit, pineapple, apricots

Taste & Mouth - There is an average amount of carbonation and I can taste malts and caramel mixed with hops. There is also some pineapple, apricot and grapefruit.

Overall - A solid easy drinking APA. Uinta is turning out to be one of my favourite brewers.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A: Pours a clear gold with a creamy, lingering white mousse.

S: Caramel, crackers, biscuits, and minerals mingle with grass, herbs, lemon, and pine on the nose.

T: Notes of pine, cedar, lemon, lime, grass, and herbs come to the fore on the entry, but are soon balanced by traces of caramel, biscuit, cream, crackers, and minerals. The finish is clipped and mildly bitter with pine and lemon notes underscored by minerals, biscuits, and crackers.

M: Medium-bodied and fairly dry for the style. Carbonation is very active and crisp. This ale is very easy to drink and would make a solid session beer.

O: The best thing I can say about this ale is that it is very solid. It's not particularly adventurous and it definitely doesn't do anything surprising or unexpected, but taken purely as a hoppy session ale, one could do far, far worse.

12oz. can served in a small schooner. Pours a dull burnt orange with a hazy clarity. Head is loose, off-white and quickly dissipates towards the shoulders, leaving a residual soapy slick. Some spots of lacing revealed during the tasting. Nose expresses light biscuit malts and a trace of fruity esters. Taste consistent with nose with the addition of a noble hops presence at the finish. There's also a little citric acid interspersed throughout the flavor profile. Mouthfeel is light in body with a crisp carbonation and a hint of acidity. Overall an easy drinking session beer, but not much flavor. That said, I'd be interested to see this beer on-cask.

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.

Thanks to ibrew2or3 for this newly added BA brew.

A: Pours a light bright golden hue. There is a 1/4 inch head that exhibits okay retention. No lace.

S: Nice light citrus hoppy aroma with hints of earthy grass. Hints of light malt hide beneath. Overall mild aroma.

T: Light in flavor as well. There is a nice light hoppy flavor with the grass and citrus coming thru. Toasty malt as well.

M: Very thin yet sparkling.

D: Pretty darn drinkable.

12 oz. bottle.

Clear golden orange body with yellower edges. Solid finger of thick, lacy, off-white head. Big fresh hop nose with notes of pine, citrus, and pineapple, all backed by sweet, fruity malt aromas. As expected, big hop flavors up front. Very vegetal and green with some pine and resin as well. Biscuit and light fruit malt backing, but are somewhat dominated by the hops. Resinous (cannabis-like) finish with a little aspirin and pine bitterness. Moderate body with a lively feel. Goes down pretty easily and makes a nice session beer.
