1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle shared by Crosling. Poured a clear golden color with a thin white head that faded to a layer and left some spots of lacing. Aroma of stale graham cracker, butter, and overwhelming horse manure. Crisp, lightly bitter entry leads into an empty, dead middle until you are hit with a lingering aftertaste of corn and rotten stewed vegetables. Moderate carbonation and a light, watery mouthfeel. This beer was pretty gross, so much so that we thought something may have happened during shipment that could have ruined it, but we had others from the brewery that came in the same shipment that didn’t show any signs of problems, so I guess it just is bad.

Pours a orange yellow color with a floral aroma. Taste is fruity and light surprisingly light for a pale ale. Mild hoppy aftertaste which makes it drinkable.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Clear golden amber, with a huge foamy head, leaves plenty of thin lacing. The aroma is subdued, but it is mostly floral and spicy hops, with some creamy tangerine notes. Light bodied, thin palate, high carbonation. Not much depth of flavor, but nicely hopped, and very clean. The 4% ABV is appreciated. Very sessionable.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
bottle. Pours golden orange with white head. Somewhat hoppy aroma, herbal and floral. Flavor is lightly hoppy, soft citrus orange and lime floral, but pretty balanced, good malt backbone and by no means a hopped up beer. Palate is medium to thin, although I wouldn’t go so far as to call this watery. Well it’s not the best pale ale I’ve had but I wouldn’t go so far as to say it sucks. It’s not bad, especially as a session given the lightness of palate and low alcohol.

12 oz. can pours a dark golden color with small white head and some lacing. Aroma has peach, citrus hops, and bready malts. Taste is bitter with some malt sweetness in the middle. Body is light to medium with average carbonation. Very sessionable, and my kind of light beer.

Bottle. Pours an ever so slightly cloudy straw color. Finger of off-white head, settles in minutes with a little lacing. Aroma is mildly hoppy, bitter, mildly resinous. Flavor is hoppy, mildly bitter throughout. Soft-moderate carbonation, light body and crisp clean texture. A pretty good pale ale.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
From single 12oz’er ---->glass--- obnoxious mouth : I’ll tell you something, this "wyld" thing beat the hell out of my expectations! Excellent IPA aroma and very slick mouthfeel. Taste and feels much heavier than 4%! Damn I would nominate this as potential session beer of the year. Sure, not going to make many waves here on RB, but this is extremely drinkable and fresh!

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Hazy orange pour with a finger of head. Fruity, orange, white bread. Watery start with big carbonation and quick and non-flavorable finish. No exciting
