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.

Nice cloudy pour of a wheat with moderate white head. Nice hop presence with citrus being most prevalent. Very tasty for a wheat with a bit of dry finish & hops throughout. Excellent offering of a "Hoppy Wheat". Will definitely enjoy much of this summer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Cloudy golden with a white head. Aroma contains citrus and pine. A little bit of clove also. The flavor is more apa like than anything with some bitter lemons and a bit of coriander and bubble gum. The finish is somewhat bitter. Overall pretty good.

Bamaboy1975 (242) - Suffolk, Virginia, USA - FEB 9, 2014
Golden color with a blonde head Aroma: Big hop aroma up front. Flavor: This is full bodied hopped flavor, finishing slightly citrus and smooth. Overall: This is a well balanced beer. It has lots of hoppy flavor, but not overly bitter. The wheat base renders the beer very smooth. This is a very good wheat pale ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Had on tap at West First. Interesting idea this....the wheat and the IPA together. For me would have been better without the wheat aspect. Pours a hazy yellow with a decent head. Pretty light mouthfeel/body. Taste is an actual assault of citrus with only 20 measly IBU’s to balance it out. Like drinking fermented citrus juice. Would be really refreshing on a hot day after mowing the lawn- maybe.
