I expect you fermented at too high a temperature. Did you control fermentation temps?

I've never tried this myself, but I've heard that if you kick start fermentation again at the lower temperature, the yeast will clean up all the fruity esthers when it finishes. Might be something to try if it's undrinkable. Just add some malt and see what happens.

my second batch ever had a strong cider/green apple flavor that turned out to be wild yeast (most likely didn't have a good seal on my starter bottle).

That can be a problem depending on how much you use. Small amounts of table sugar (~5% of fermentable sugars or so) can be ok, but if you add more table sugar than that, it can impart a cidery taste.

Well, sugar in beer is noted to create cidery flavors in "regular" beers. I would guess that the combination of high temperatures and the sugar really escalated the off-flavor. If you post your recipe, we can pick it out for sure for you.
