4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Sampled and purchased at Appalachian Vintners in Asheville NC. "Wildfire Extra Pale Ale" bottle dated 08/29/08. Hazy gold with lumpy white foam like the wake of a snowplow. Amazing and unique aroma- mango and dank/piney hops- against a nutty malt backdrop. Crisp, wheaty and citric flavor... a flash of honey and then tonic water dryness. Dried pineapple. Mellow orange and spicy aftertaste. Saison-like. Light palate features an electric CO2 buzz, like zapping your tongue with a 9V battery. Outsatanding pale ale, superlatively refreshing.

Light golden color with a tangy citrusy hop note. Sharp tangerine grapefruit flavor. Crisp and clean nice hop character. A little acidic on the palate. A delightful little beer.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

Despite a quickly dissipating head, Wyld is still nice to look at, being a mostly clear reddish-orange-golden color. The aroma is a mostly of peaches, with faint hops, but entirely pleasant. The flavor is a little floral, a little fruity, and bitter like an IPA. It’s mostly average, but pleasant, if not a little subdued.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle thanks to Douglas88! Color is light amber with a white head and has a nice citrus and hops aroma...more so than most pale ales. The flavor is similar, with hops, orange, grains, and malt. I like the balance and enjoyed this Utah pale ale.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma: light malts, a touch of caramel, nice fruity hop profile, some grapefruit, floral. Pours a clear golden color, white head with average retention and some clumpy lacing. Refreshing flavor - nice citrus hop notes, grapefruit and a hint of tropical fruit. Malt backbone balances nicely, some grains and a light caramel note. Light-medium body, medium carbonation. Very well balanced and drinkable beer - I’d like to see more breweries focus a bit on these low abv session beers.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Apricot pour with a small white head. Lightly hopped aroma with a bread/peppery finish. Flavor is similar lightly hopped with a nice spiced finish. Light body a little watery. Decent beer but nothing special.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma is soft dough and grapy hop and floral nose. Appearance is great thick head, gold orange color with a lil yeast left, otherwise would have been 5. Taste is slightly tangy at first, then med body maltiness watches over with pale grain flavor, good stuff. Palate is right even with lasting and running, balanced. Overall very nice beer, hopped enough for an IPA lover, although its not hoppy the hop nose and body of the beer carries ibus well, but easy enough for the newbie. NICE~
