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!

ben4321 (5641) - 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.

Medium tan head, fair retention, decent lace. Amber in color. Mild nose of malt. Lightly medium bodied, sorta twangy, a bit much on the co2. Malty, caramel flavors with something sorta ,,,tangy? Dry finish, malts. Weird. 12oz can, couple of months old. Props to my lovely wife for grabbing me a 6er and a Tshirt from the brewery on her adventures. Not an APA and not a decent representation of an Amber either. Drinkability, 2 out of 10.

Cybercat (5045) - Georgia, USA - JUN 3, 2016
Taps clear amber with a nice buff head. Aroma features more woody hops than malt, more like an IPA. Hoppy flavor delivers evergreen, malty and fruity tones, the latter being as much pomme as citrus. Mouthfeel offers up good body, lively fizz, and a woody hop finish. Hail to the alpha wolf!

commonmac (1024) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAY 27, 2016
UPDATED: MAY 27, 2016 Tap at the brewery with the ECBT crew. Huge space with a lot more than just beer going on. Aroma is hoppy pine with a malty undertone. It?s a copper with a hint of amber color. Taste is very similar to the MN standard known as Summit EPA. Hoppy pine bitterness comes over the top of a malty/bready backbone. Pretty good balance with a heavy lingering hop aftertaste. Slight cloying mouthfeel. One of the American pale ale dogs, just not the actual alpha.

HuskerTan (1582) - Kearney, Nebraska, USA - SEP 28, 2015
(Thanks, Gene! "Travlr") Can. A- Gummy, citrus, pine. A- Orange amber color, hazy liquid, off white head. T- Pine, bitter, tangerines, pepper. P- Medium body, average texture, average carbonation, bitter finish. O- Amber Ale? No way, this is definitely a Pale Ale. Quite citrusy on the nose but a lot of pepper and malt on the palate. Malty on the end and a bit dry but otherwise a pretty standard APA.

on tap on tap @ Wild Wolf / Nellysford VA --- Clear medium amber color with a polite white head, streaks of lace. Taste is malt that introduces noticeable hops right away, then adds fizz on the swallow. Hops linger a long time. A solid, tasty hopped ale.

chinchill (4200) - South Carolina, USA - JUN 23, 2015
12 oz can with a March 2015 canning date. Clear deep amber body topped by a durable head. This hoppy pale ale could easily pass for an IPA. The hops seem mostly herbal in the nose but emphasize citrus upon tasting. Medium-high bitterness.

Canned. Yellow orange pour. Lots of citrus. A bit of must in essence. OK unprxisl overall.
