4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A slightly hazy copper and amber brew with a thin light khaki head. The nose has a fair amount of citrus and a little bit of pine. There is also some almond and caramel. The taste has lots of grapefruit citrus bursting out like crazy! Wow, one of the most citrus forward IPA’s I have ever tasted. The malt backbone is fairly dry which allows the citrus sweetness of the hops to shine through. There is also a nice toasted nut quality to the finish. This is an excellent citrus tasting IPA.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
From tap into pint glass, poured with a medium carbonation a light amber colored beer with a deep off white head. Nose is funky citrus and flora with a hint of malt sweetness. The flavor starts with a good bitterness lending itself to a slight biscuit/malt sweetness that finishes with a long citrus bite. This is a well balanced English/American hybrid IPA.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
1. Look - A deep golden beer, almost amber in color, with a medium white head.
2. Sniff – There is a piney aroma present, but it very soft and subtle.
3. Sip – This is a tasty IPA. It is very drinkable with a soft bitterness and a piney finish that is somewhat long lasting.
4. Another Look – The beer is fairly clear and looks tasty, but the lacing is very weak.
5. Evaluate - Overall, I liked this beer, I am impressed. I enjoyed drinking this IPA a lot. It reminded me of Abita’s IPA –but less piney and more enjoyable. This IPA exceeded my expectations and I would recommend this beer to family and friends who enjoy a piney hop aroma and taste in their IPA’s.

Sampled from the tap at the Milwaukee location. Pours a near clear gold with an orange hue and a white head that dissipates slowly to the edges and laces. Aroma has a nice citrus note with some flora, bitterness and a hint of sweet grains. Flavor starts with citrus and flora but finishes with more of a bitter note of grapefruit.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at the Milwaukee outlet. Same, pure amber color as their pale ale. But this delivers a nice, stingingly resiny hoppinesss. Big, slippery mouthfeel. Sturdy and earthy. (#5149, 7/5/2013)

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a nice shade of amber with off white head about 1.5 fingers thick. Head dissipates fairly quickly. Lovely aroma of citrus, and hoppiness with some nice malty tones coming through too. Taste is pretty solid and true to style with some lingering bitterness that is noticable, but not overwhelming. Overall this is a very nice beer from Hinterland.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Copper pour with a decent head and lacing. Not much aroma even with my nose in the glass. Mild hops/sweet malts is all.
Taste is a decent blend of hops/malt with a very light bite in the end. Palate is full and quite enjoyable. A bit of a surprise on this one. $10 for 4 pint bottles.
A worthy buy.

The flavor opens up with lots of orange citrus, herbal hops and pine followed by some earthy malt and caramel notes. Mouthfeel is medium-bodied with smooth carbonation and a bitter, citrus finish. Overall, an above average IPA with good balance and a clean finish.
