COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
With roots in two of today’s most popular brewing styles, 80-Acre Hoppy Wheat Beer is the result of careful cultivation by our brewers and cellarmen. Their efforts to craft a hybrid yielded a bumper crop of flavor; a delightfully distinctive ale with the aroma of an IPA and the refreshing taste of a wheat beer.

On tap @ Cranknstein. Hazy golden pour with a white head. Big floral hop aroma. Light citrus, grass, lemon, and peach. Sweet wheat bread. Flavor is wheat bread, floral hops, and some citrus. A bit of grassy hop flavor and bitterness on the finish.

Lager glass. Notes of lemon and hops, smells refreshing. Pours a cloudy gold/yellow with a thick foamy head, some lacing, good carbonation. Different taste then what I expected, its very drinkable. A bit of lemon/wheat at the front with a nice light hops taste at the rear. An excellent beer, really enjoyable.

Read that this was a good alternative for 3F Gumballhead so gave it a shot. Not tasting or feeling the wheat. Tastes like a run of the IPA. Mouthfeel is pretty rich. Too strong for summer and hops are far from clean. Not even close to Gumballhead.

Has the nose of a light and citrusy IPA with the taste of a smooth, yeasty wheat beer. Very sessionable and a fantastic balance of both the wheat and IPA style. Overall awesome beer.

Odd beer, I dont think I’ve ever had a hybrid IPA/wheat, definitely tasting the wheat, hops are pretty well muted though, tastes more like a wheat that is a little hoppy, still a decent beer, was just hoping for more of the IPA flavor. Not disappointing though.

I’ve been to the grocery store many times hesitant to try this hybrid. I finally had to go for it. Pours a hazy golden color with hop bouquet. The flavor is rather refreshing, reminiscent of summery wheat beers with that IPA backbone. Delicious !

Bottle - thanks bob! Pours hazy butterscotch with a medium white head and very nice lacing. Aroma is citrus, wheat, pine. Flavor is the same, light sweet and light bitter, with an IPA start and a wheaty finish. Light plus body, quire refreshing, actually. A nice take.
