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.

Bottled sample at the 9th Annual Summertime Brews Festival, Greensboro, 7/13/13. Pours a hazy yellow color with a large creamy white head. Good head retention. Aroma of spicy, herbal hops with a wheat finish. The taste is stone fruits, wheat, spicy hops. Medium bodied. Solid beer.

Gription79 (2236) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - JUL 9, 2013
Poured from a 12 ounce bottle. The aroma is filled with a large dose of citrusy American hops, orange, there is a fruity, doughy wheat aroma. The flavor is similar, with the hops being juicy citrus fruits. There is a palate filling doughy flavor. A nice beer, a little to full of a palate for the triple digit weather we have been having.

MrBunn (2456) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 8, 2013
Bottle Pour is a hazy yellow/gold with a big fluffy head that dies down to a lot of clinging foam on the side of the glass and a few patches of it on the surface. Aromas are interestingly hoppy, but not quite what I expected... lots of lemon and pear with a little honey. Flavor follows along those lines... sweet and malty with a nice lemony edge to it. It’s kind of chewy on the palate at times, but still refreshing and nice enough.

Hangover (1057) - Atlanta, Alabama, USA - JUL 7, 2013
Lemon yellow pour with a half inch head. Aroma is of lemon zest and citrus hops. Definite wheat flavor up front, with a nice creamy body. Hops come through towards the middle with a lot of lemon, orange and grapefruit. Smooth finish, lingering citrus and just slightly bitter. Tasty, very well balanced and pretty unique.

On tap at Taco Mac. 20 oz pour. Cloudy, straw color typical of a wheat beer. A good bit of hops, like a pale ale or even some IPAs, and very easy to drink. The perfect summer beer for an IPA lover.

EdInSaltLake (593) - Salt Lake City, Utah, USA - JUL 5, 2013
Tart lemon aroma and flavor, with peppery and herbal character. Pretty dry flavor; a little sweeter in finish, dry again in aftertaste. Nice biscuit/cereal malt flavor that comes out more in aftertaste.

On tap at Ridgewood (Raleigh) Poured a cloudy orange. Fruity aroma. Fruity taste with a touch of tartness. This is a fusing of a summer wheat beer with a hoppy beer, but the mark is missed. Not sure if the missed mark is due to the nature of the combination, or this one attempt. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a nice orange with white head. Smell is fresh and bright clean hops. Taste is bright clean hops. Crisp. Not much of a wheaty flavor. Would like a bit more wheat but still a nice beer.
