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.

Tap. Hazy gold. Good lacing. Fruity, yeasty, and hoppy aroma. Initial spicy bite, then well balanced throughout. Very good and drinkable. Happy to say it was just what I expected.

Bottle. Best by: 09/21/13. Pours a hazy pale gold with a nicely sized beige head. The remarkably tart aroma features plenty of orange juice, lemons, zesty citrus rinds, peaches, hints of bananas, a slightly musty funk, a little candi sugar, and a touch of coriander. Goes down thin to medium-bodied with a tongue-tingling and refreshing effervescence. A fair amount of wheatiness upfront taste-wise along with a dusting of candi sugar. Tart orange juice, lemons, a little grapefruit, and some citrus rinds at the end. The finish is dry and kinda bitter. A yeasty spiciness is present the whole way through. Definitely worth revisiting.

Bottle. The pour is very light with big head. The aroma is a good mix of hops and wheat. The taste is full of carbonation. Light flavor. A little cut in the taste. Some light citrus notes. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pershing (476) - Garland, Texas, USA - AUG 1, 2013
Hazy yellow with a nice lasting head. Aroma of pine and citrus. Compared to other wheat ales, the extra hop bitterness makes this beer special and unique. Clean finish with the urge to drink more.

boFNjackson (4140) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUL 29, 2013
Tap @ OBF... Poured pale, hazy yellow with a retaining white head. Nose contained wheated malt and floral hops. Same hop notes int he aroma came through in the taste but came off a little more faint than expected. Light mouthfeel and clean. Some fruity yeast spices in the finish.

docsteigs (527) - Texas, USA - JUL 27, 2013
Very flavorful and refreshing. Aroma is more wheat-centered than hoppy, but taste is well balanced with significant Cascade character.

On draught at 26th Oregon Brewers Festival. Golden color. Aroma of citrus hops and wheat. Taste is a nice balance of light wheat, clove, and slightly bitter citrus hoppiness. Sweetly bitter finish.

Pale and cloudy with a nice little solid head. Smells yeasty with lots of lemon and also pine and a nice amount of general American hop aroma. Prickly carbonation washes over the tongue giving way to flavors of candied lemon peel and grapefruit. Finishes clean with a subtle taste reminiscent of lemon heads. Leaves a pleasant tingling on the tongue and roof of the mouth. Good stuff! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
