Sample at Ale Wine & Spirits in Powell on 02/23/2012. This brew pours a clear pale orange color with a medium thin off-white head that evaporates quickly. Short strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of hops and grainy malt. Medium body with flavors of earthy hops, malt and a bit of citrus. The finish is mildly bitter with a short hoppy aftertaste. Decent overall. crossovert (12943) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 10, 2011
It is a decent pale ale that I would put on a level with SNPA. It has a mild hoppiness but it is an interesting hoppiness. deyholla (11609) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - FEB 11, 2012
Sampled from the tap at the Milwaukee brewpub. Pours a near clear gold with a near white head that dissipates to the edges and laces slightly. Aroma has notes of earthy citrus with a bit of light grain and hay. Flavor starts with musty citrus and light fruit with earthy grains and hay in the finish.

Bottle. Semi-hazy orange pour with a medium fluffy white head. Mild citrus and pine hop nose with some bready malts. Medium palate with excellent carbonation. Taste is earthy bready malts with a nice little hop kicker. Good stuff.

Bottle shared by shigadeyo. Pours a clear amber color with a small bubbly white head. The aroma has toasted bread, grainy, some light herbal and floral hops. This seems to be a touch on the dusty side. The flavor is grainy, toasted bread, mildly herbal with some general bitterness to the finish. Not very exciting. onceblind (9708) - Denver, Colorado, USA - FEB 2, 2014
Hazy golden with a foamy tight white head. Nose is semisweet and floral/grassy with a nice wee bitterness. The flavor has this odd tap water note about it toward the finish, but its not enough to detract from the overall taste. Grassy bitter beginning with a little touch of tangerine rind bitterness, a wee touch astringent, then gets clean and bright malty. Nothing special, but gets points for being classy and sippable.

1 pint bottle. Yellow orange color with visible sediment suspended in the body, nice thin off-white head, some lace. Visible particles. Nice good hop profile. Lighter and crisp carbonation, very drinkable. Some light bitter taste. Good pale ale. Between this and the Luna coffee stout, I’ve got a pretty good impression of Hinterland so far. The 1 pint bottle size is something that I can appreciate. JaBier (7973) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - OCT 4, 2012
Bottle sample at the Hinterland tasting at Blacklick Wine & Spirits on 9/20/12. Clear amber pour with a medium beige head. Aroma of grainy malt and earthy hop. Grainy malt flavor with an earthy and spicy hop finish. Definitely English style. PorterPounder (7971) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - OCT 12, 2013
Tallahassee, Fl - Whole Foods Market - pint bottle. Dark, murky orange pour with a sticky off-white head that leaves nice lacing. Aroma has some light spicy notes, a touch of citrus. Flavor has a nice underlying subtle bitterness with some sweet cake mix notes, a touch of vanilla and some coriander spiciness. Mouthfeel is rich and full. Nice change of pace.
