COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our American Pale Ale with a ton of Citra, Columbus and Cascade hops. Deep amber in color with an extremely well rounded hop and malt character. This beer gives hop heads what they are looking for without wrecking your palate; yet it is sufficiently balanced which is pleasing to many hop-timid beer drinkers. The finish is slightly dry and refreshing to the last drop. This beer will not disappoint!

I really liked the aroma of this beer. It passes the eye test as well. It was the overall refreshing flavor that got me to give this beer such a high rating. Excellent stuff.

nimbleprop (5084) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - OCT 8, 2012
20oz pour at Capitol Alehouse Innbrook. Pours a transparent, copper amber with some lacing, creamy white head. Nose is fruity, citrus, grapefruit, lemon, lime, floral, a little biscuit. Flavor was spot on, light caramel, some chewy grain and then plenty of hops, blood orange, grass, dried lemon peel, flower petals. Medium bodied, lightly zesty, refreshing finish. Very nice session ale.

jgb9348 (4812) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - MAR 20, 2014
Nice crisp amber coloured body with a thin tan head. Aroma of bright grapefruit, piney and resinous hops - a lot of them and a touch of malt. Medium-bodied; Strong herbaceous hop flavour at first with some perceived metallic and earthy notes along with a lot of caramel and sweet notes at the end. Aftertaste shows a lot of hop bitterness with grapefruit and piney notes clearly winning out. Overall, a very potent hop presence with a good malt backbone and some nice complex flavours - much more hops than I was expecting and definitely one of the best ’ambers’ I’ve had in a while. I feel like this is an APA, but if it stays in this category - find one, because it is a great beer for the style. I sampled this twelve ounce can after a hockey game in Arlington, Virginia on 19-March-2014 - Thanks JP!

Kinz (3347) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - FEB 19, 2013
Draft Cap Ale Innsbrook. Medium orange amber, decent head. Hoppy aroma, citric in character, pine and grapefruit. Caramel accented malt backbone, hop emphasis on the finish, matches the nose. Definitely in the APA family way more than in the ambers. Quite nice.

ben4321 (4066) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - NOV 17, 2012
Location: Draft at Capital Ale, 11/17/12

Aroma: The nose citrus fruit, some pine, caramel, malts, and bread
Appearance: This one pours a clear orange color, with a white head, and some sticky lace
Flavor: The taste is lightly sweet, with caramel and grains, and light-mid hoppy, with fruit and pine notes
Palate: This one has a medium body, with a clean feel, and a nice, dry finish on the mouth
Overall Impression:  Nice stuff, that I thought worked rather well. Drinks nicely. This was a nice first beer to try from Wild Wolf, and quite sessionable.
