Just bought a 4-pack of 16 ounce bottles at Binny's. I was excited when I heard that this would be distributed to Chicago. This beer smells amazing. Probably the best smelling IPA that I have drank. I also like that it is a bit more carbonated than most beers. It pours an amazing head. This tastes much more like an English IPA than an American IPA but it is still very good. I believe the ABV can be updated to 7% since that is what this is. Not my favorite IPA but definitely up there. I really likes the taste of this IPA and I would drink it again.

Aroma- citrus, spruce very nice nose
Apperance- Golden with a tint of orange
Taste- Very nice full flavored IPA, lots of citrus and woodsy pine notes and a nice balanced bitter finish
Body-medium body, creamy, perfect carbonation.

This new IPA from Hinterland is spot on and will definitely be my go to.

This IPA pours a deep amber color; bordering on light brown. Thick khaki head that settles down to leave a thin layer.
I don't get a huge hop aroma from this one, but what I get I like. Grapefruit, citrus, pine. Also very apparent from the aroma that this IPA will have a strong malt backbone.
This IPA will not knock you over with intense hop flavor, but it has a very apparent, bright, and complex hop flavor. In the middle the malts come out, and you get a definite toasted bread, caramel malt flavor. Then follows a pleasant bitterness and dry finish. Great mouthfeel. Not one dimension or thin. One of the richer IPAs I've had.
Overall, this IPA is extremely drinkable that boasts a pleasant hop character, strong malt body, and clean bitter finish. Will definitely seek this out again.

Great IPA and super easy drinking. Aroma was fresh hops and some malt. Appearance is a large foamy frothy off white head that settles very slowly, lots of lace and a hazy orange amber color. Flavor's like nose, mainly bitter with a long finish. Body is perhaps a hair thin. Very good drop.

Pours copper/dark orange color with a medium head, def looks very appealing in the glass.

I smelled a well balance between sweet, fruity tones and some lingering earthy tones.

Taste doesn't hit you with hops right away, but lingers at the end. I get most of the fruitiness flavors I like in an IPA at the end. Well balanced. I like the taste a lot. Not like your typical, all hops IPA. Doesn't leave that bitter taste in your mouth. Finishes very clean.

Heavy and smooth in the mouth. I think the balance of the flavor helps this aspect.

Now that this is offered in the Chicagoland area I'll definitely be seeking this brew out. I love the 16oz 4-Packs, bottles are cool shape too. Haven't been too excited about many WI breweries, but Hinterland has a solid lineup.

Served in a shaker pint glass at The Firkin.

This cask was apparently dry-hopped with Apollo hops. Nice. Things pour a slightly cloudy tawny amber topped by a bit more than a finger of light cream-white foam. The nose comprises pineapple, sweet pine, light mint, buttery toffee, dry biscuit, light honey, and light mandarin orange. It's pretty fruity, but in a breathmint sorta way, and it's all balanced pretty well by some nice maltiness. The taste continues this idea of balance, with some biscuity caramel coinciding with that aforedescribed fruit salad, which is now met with a near-equal bit of straight pine. The body is a light medium, with a rather light carbonation and a fluffy, creamy feel. Overall, it may have been the cask-conditioning and the dry-hopping, but this was a very enjoyable IPA. Good times.

This beer pours a cloudy dusky orange with an average head. The aroma offers grapefruit, mango, pineapple, passionfruit, and some pine. The flavor is juicy, with pineapple, grapefruit, passionfruit, and a solid but mild level of bitterness. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with soft carbonation. Overall this is a really nice IPA, with solid tropical flavors and an easy drinking attitude.

Third beer I've had from Hinterland. GB Baby! Solid IPA, golden with a frothy crown that laces well. Not overpowering West Coast style hops in the nose, but a decent bite. Good balance on the tongue in favor of the hop bitterness. Quite enjoyable, I'll buy this again if I can find it. Sessionable IPA, recommended.

Nitro always makes a nice pour. Bright orange and cascading, settling carbonation. It leaves a frothy off white head with excellent retention.

Pleasant but weak aromas if citrus and lilac. Toasted crackers.

The flavor has a little more punch, again with a nice balance of citrus and floral notes. A little pine in the back end. Bitter aftertaste.

Mouthfeel on nitro is out of this world. Soft and creamy.

I've had this bottled and it's mediocre. On nitro it's very good.

At the Milwaukee brewpub.

Pours a cloudy honey straw with a half finger of head that quickly dissipates to a ring with some lacing. Heavy pine on the nose. Taste is resinously piney with some bitterness at the end. On the thin side.
