appearance n smell appealed me but once i took a sip it was real bitter in a non appealing way. taste like like ur grandma washed ur mouth out with dish soap. im not a picky person love weiss n ipa n this was just not good. if u want a good wheat pale ale check out 80 acre hop wheat or gumballhead.

Served in a Lagunitas mason jar.

Wait, this cap is black (save for the yellow Hinterland logo, of course)... Anyway, this stuff pours a clear brass topped by a finger of white, sudsy foam. The nose comprises orange rind, a twist of lemon, and mild funky wheat. The taste brings in more of the same, along with a strong vein of lemon peel up front and plenty of funky citrus, a flavor akin to fungus-laden grapefruit and lemon peels. Suffice it to say, odd and unappealing. The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a dry finish. Overall, this is just a mess of a beer, with flavors that not only don't add up to something I would call a "white IPA", but also don't add up to anything I would call a good or tasty beer.

poured 12oz bottle into Duvel tulip

A - Light golden yellow with a 1.5 finger bright "white cap" head. Thin ring remains for the session and spots of lacing dot the glass.

S - Dim citrus, grapefruit, and pine hops. Only a little Belgian yeast and minimal malt.

T - Light, bitter grapefruit and minimal citrus hoppiness. Belgian yeast is very subdued and the malt presence is lacking. Some piney bitter and grapefruit on the finish.

M - Light bodied, made to be an easy drinker. Carbonation is also light. Some minor bitterness lingers.

D - Light sessionable beer, like CW Hop Rise and Founders All Day. Not much Belgian yeast or malt to be found in this, which is intended. Not something I will get again.
