Hinterland - Pale Ale; IPA

Hinterland beers are brewed by the Green Bay Brewing Company of Green Bay, Wisconsin.

Pale Ale - This 5.3% ABV beer pours copper-amber-orange-golden in color with a tall head of thick and creamy off-white foam.  The aroma is malty, caramel malt, somewhat yeasty, hoppy in a spicy, zesty way.  The taste is rich malt, slight touch of caramel, with a bracingly dry, astringent and bitter finish.  This is a pale ale in the best English style.

IPA- This 6.7% ABV beer pours copper in color with a quarter-inch head of off-white foam.  The aroma is malty, yeasty, light tropical fruit.  The taste follows the aroma and finishes quite bitter and dry.  If you are looking for an American West Coast IPA, this is not it, but quite good as an English-style.
