New to Shelves: Sam Adams Whitewater IPA; Hinterland Luna Coffee Stout

Last night I visited the Hy-Vee in Marion and came across a couple of new beers that I haven’t seen on the shelves. The first one to catch my eye was Hinterland (http://www.hinterlandbeer.com/index.htm) Luna Coffee Stout. Really unique look to the bottles as they come in pints and also 4 packs. Here is the description:
“Opaque, black, coffee-like character. Infused
with nitrogen. Very creamy, extremely clean
and refreshing. 5.8% ABV.
Available in:
1/2 and 1/6 barrels
6-4 1 pint btl pack NR

Let me know if you try it and what your thoughts were. I picked up a four pick and have yet to delve in.
The next beer comes from good ol’ Boston Beer Company; Sam Adams. This brewery continues to impress with its beers. Here’s the product description of the Whitewater IPA.
“Sam Adams Whitewater IPA. A wheat ale brewed with apricots & spices.
This hazy brew combines the crisp character of a white ale with the intense pine and citrus flavors of an India Pale Ale. We took the unique combination to a new level with the sublet addition of apricots, which provide a slight sweetness to balance the bitterness of the hops. Cheers!”

If you try any of these beers or see something new to Eastern Iowa please drop me a line and let me know. Drink well!
