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.

EXCELLENT. Perfect smoothe with just enough hops ,,,, but not too much towards ipa land. Prob should rate this a ten k. Just changed....wolfed down 3 of these quickly and have not done that since earlier days....great warm weather beer with Hop smell and taste...will seek out again soon.....

rollinsr (384) - Atlanta, GEORGIA - JUL 18, 2013
Pours hazy yellow with a thin layer of white head. Aroma is mostly piney citrus resin. I can’t make out many typical wheat aromas due to the hops. Flavor is light with mostly lemon citrus that resembles a shandy. Not overly fruity but enough to be overly refreshing while maintaining the semblance of a beer.

Butters (3814) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JUL 16, 2013
Beautiful cloudy bright yellow with good white head. Very pleasing on the eyes and palate. Aroma is bright hoppy citrus with a bit of a ’stinky weed’ note. Flavor brings out the wheatiness, but there is still that undeniable bright citrusy/earthy/herbal hop flavor. Bitterness is moderately low, but there. Good carbonation. Fairly refreshing as well. I really dug this.

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 (2296) - 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 (2486) - 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 (1063) - 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.
