a very good white ipa, i had mine in a stemmed glass poured from a pint can. the color is great, cloudy yellow wheaty look to it, some density, and a bone white head over an inch tall and lasting as long as it takes me to drink the whole beer (which isnt long at all, but probably could have been). nose is nice, not as hoppy as i expected for an ipa, its tempered by a real cereal wheat front end and a pinch of coriander, although i really dont smell much belgian yeast, which i am thankful for. flavor is good and fresh, maybe a little overdone with the wheat malt. it detracts from the hop finish, which i think i like but its so reserved its hard to tell. the body and grain character is huge for a beer thats not even 4 and a half percent. minimally yeasty, but still loosely belgian. better than most, but its still there (for those who dont know, i have a long critique of the style being a hoppy belgian wit, not just a wheat ipa). it all comes together quite well, and i do enjoy the bigger body. i could put back a fair few of these, but a more crisp hop finish would improve the overall experience.

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.
