Had it during the beer tasting.

A very nice pour. One finger thick off white head. Straw pale colored. Clear. A few bubbles. Good retention and excellent lacing.

A very nice aroma that is a mix of Belgian type yeasts and very nice floral hops. Strength is strong. Smells really good of strong hops - floral, some citrus and pine.

Taste is of wheat, yeast and bittering hops. Presence upfront is bitter, well balanced middle and a bitter end. Good interplay of texture, sweetness and bitterness. Citrus and floral hops. Finish is dry bitter.

Mouth feel is light to slightly medium bodied. Moderate carbonation. No warmth. Easy to drink. Very sessionable.

A perfect sessionable, smooth and quaffable delicious white IPA that will give even Founders All day run for its money. Excellent stuff. Must try.

White Cap pours out a hazy yellow-gold color with two fingers of well-retaining head. The aroma is actually very good for the style, there's a strong hop presence with an actual well-integrated Belgian yeast. Again, I'm grading to style because I usually don't like Belgian/White IPAs, but this is much tastier than the majority of them on the market. The Belgian flavors are very present, but very well integrated with the hops, instead of the clash that most of the beers in the style present. The mouthfeel is light and crisp, and the drinkability is very good. Overall, White Cap is very good in two areas - session and Belgian IPA. One of the best examples of the style.

A - hazy golden with a thin fluffy white head leaving spotty lacing.

S - Belgian yeast, citrus hops, bubblegum, light pine.

T - bubblegum, citrus hops, light spice, Belgian yeast.

M - light side of medium and well carbonated. Lingering hop resin.

D - had a test batch that was more bitter. They dialed this one in nicely. Should make a great summer drinker.

12 oz bottle poured into a Hinterland tulip
4.2% ABV

A - Underneath it's rocky white cap, an ever-so-slight haze forms over the pale golden beer, reflecting the bottle's label quite well. Jagged lace jets up from the beer creating a rocky silhouette around the glass, completing portrait very well.

S - Dry and crisp, the aroma is hop-forward, with dry hopping bringing freshly squeezed grapefruit juice, pear skin, and pine sap into play with lemon and orange peel citrus. Spicy yeast ester undertones add a charming "white" twist of coriander, clay, and wet grass to the dry pale malt base.

T - White Cap's bright hoppiness continues from the aroma into the flavor without skipping a beat; pine and bold grapefruit juice overwhelm the more subtle of the aroma's nuances of "white" yeast characteristics. White Cap tastes more like an IPA than a Belgian-influenced one.

M - My only complaint, if any, with Hinterland White Cap is the lack of body for how bitter the beer is. This drinks like a bold IPA because there is little balance on the back end. Nice carbonation keeps the crisp, dry beer lively though!

O - White Cap is quite refreshing and wonderfully hoppy in both the aroma and flavor but the hoppiness is a double-edged sword that also becomes taxing with how little body the beer has to support the hoppiness. Sticking with it's "white" theme, which is wonderful in the aroma, I might (if it were my beer) decrease kettle hops and lower the sharp bitterness. It would take this very good beer to new levels of really balancing the Belgian influence with the hops rather than allowing the subtle notes to be overrun. Either way, White Cap is fragrant and bright hoppy beer with tons of character.

Hinterland White Cap White India Pale Ale. One pint, can. No ABV found, if it's given.

Hazy, clouded, pale yellow, beautiful, crystalline snow-cap head, lace-leaving, long-lasting.

Aroma: Lovely blend of coriander and citrus zest. Ah! Belgian yeast funks it up, too. Not getting anything in the way of hops, really.

Taste: Okay, here they are. Hops are bouncing on top, with the Belgian yeast character and witbier flavorings keeping them company. Medium-bodied, smooth, wheat, malty, with hop bitterness laying low after it's initial pounce. Refreshing, easy-drinking, with enough of a hop bite to keep my taste buds tingling.

Okay, here's another one I liked. More of these, please.

Hinterland "White Cap"
16 oz. can, no apparent freshness dating
$2.99 @ ABC Fine Wine & Spirits #19, Tampa, FL

Notes: Interesting... truly a witbier & IPA blend. Flavor of wheat/tart lemon with raspy, grassy, and herbal hops. Bitter. Good at first but then bitterness builds, and even with a built up base of wit bier, it has trouble maintaining balance. Dry, hoppy finish lingers. Worth trying.
