COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
IPA has a roasty amber color with a lacey, beige head to top it off. With citrus and floral aromas, a pronounced hop presense fills the nose. A slightly biscuity flavor with well balanced bitterness and a malty sweetness finishes with a dry mouthfeel and a lasting bitterness.

Cask version at Winking Lizard’s 5th Annual Real Ale Fest (03/23/13): The beer pours a clear copper color with a medium white head that recedes steadily. Small patches of lacing. Aroma of hops, citrus and malt. Medium-bodied with flavors of citrusy hops, bready malt and a bit of caramel. The finish is mildly bitter with a short hoppy aftertaste. Decent overall.

Bottle - Pours lightly hazy amber with a big foamy off-white head. Nose is pine tar, metal, and an astringent, dry malt base. Taste is juicy pine up front, drying through the middle into that astringent malt base. Finishes with pine hops, but they’re never really all that pungent. Odd oniony finish. Thick and slick in the mouth. Definitely not my preferred hop profile, and the whole thing feels a little to thick and boozy.

16oz bottle, brown/orangish color, cloudy, minimal head, white foam, slight hoppy aroma, more malt aroma than anything else. Slight hoppy flavor (I would prefer much more hop taste), almost a caramel ,malty taste, medium body, balanced. Thin feel for an IPA, slight astringent finish, , Overall, not a bad ipa, better than some, not as good as others.

Half liter bottle pours a hazy orange/amber with lots of rising bubbles and a fair off-white head. Smell is mostly citrus hops. Aroma is the same, but with a bit of piney hops and carmel malts. Taste is bitter with an earthy finish. Medium body without too much carbonation. Overall, a simple and decent IPA.

Gold color. A simple ipa. Mild hop aroma. More hops in the flavor with citrus, and minimally sweet malt. Gold color, thin palate.

One pint poured into a glass vessel. Real deal IPA: bitter, dry, hoppy, and astringent, but some nice sweetness offered by the malt bin. More than adequate offering from Hinterland.

8/11/12. GTMW. Light copper/amber pour with a small khaki head. Malty aroma with caramel and hints of earthy hops, floral aspects, and pine, but you have to search. The flavor is much the same - either old, uninteresting, or both. Eh.

Thanks to GhostFace for this one. Half liter bottle pours deep clear copper with thin off white head. The mild aroma offers up some resiny vague piney hops, a bit of malt and a bit of fruity esters. The taste has a mix of bitter floral hops and some modestly resiny pine hops to midway and then picking up mild levels of earthiness and fruity esters. It stays floral and pine like hop bitterness into the finish and after taste. Kind of bitter, kind of floral, kind of an OK IPA offering.

Hazy dark amber with a strong off-white head and washes of lace. I read several other reviewers comments, and am having trouble discerning some of the taste elements they describe. This starts with a modest caramel malt that shows light sweet spice and toast, then adds enough hops to be noticeable, but not enough to satisfy hop-heads. This is a good selection for the novice hop-sampler. Recommended.

From a big pounder bottle, way to go hinter on the packaging! Smells a little like candy. Yes the big dull old ipa bitterness just swashing around in your mouth. Looks viscous sitting there with its slow rising bubbles in a syrupy lookin brew. Soapy old rude ipa like yellow brown sprce tar. Alky adds a tad if dulling smoothness to it but it never gets cloying. Long thick bitter finish. Yez, bitter nasty thing, on style I guess.
