COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
With roots in two of todayís 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.

Hazy pale yellow. Good head. Bright property hops in the nose. Very pleasant. Wheat shines through nicely in flavor. Very light.

12 oz bottle. Pours hazy yellow with a dissipating white head; leaves a skiff of foam and a little lace. Aroma consists of citrus powder drink, cooked vegetables (chilies?), catbox. Taste is a weird mixture of Bavarian Hefeweizen (clove) and IPA (citrusy hops). Weird isnít a bad thing in this case. Crisp and thirst-quenching. Highly carbonated and a bit foamy in the mouth. Very interesting and tasty.

Citrus hop aromas, distinctly wheat, grainy, and bready malts. Some citrus hop flavors, lemon zest, and wheat. Floral and earthy notes very much present as well. Finishes smooth. Crisp and refreshing. Lighter body and medium-high carbonation.

Ughsmash (7172) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 16, 2013
Bottled. Poured slightly hazy straw golden with a creamy, well-retained white head. The aroma picked up bright, fresh citrus and grassy hops over soft wheat and a hit of lemon meat.. hopped up and very enjoyable. The flavor found bitter, tangy lemon zest and grassy notes plus lively carbonation on the tip of the tongue, with soft wheat and bready notes backing.. engaging through the palate.. tangy wheat and lemon zest rode out the refreshing finish. Lighter-bodied with fairly high carbonation on the palate.. buttery-smooth middle, but it got hung up in a few places.. overall a very good beer.

kidmartinek (3742) - austin, Texas, USA - FEB 12, 2013
Pale, opaque yellow with a watery body and.a small white head. The aroma is mild and like cracked wheat. The taste is mild and it seems like this is a light beer... i.e. needs bigger cojones. The hops donít do much except to kill the weizen quality. This is a bout between yeast, wheat, and hops and all three lose. Donít be surprised whom this is from and what youíre getting. Iím not sure what the other raters saw in this beer and was very tempted to be swayed but wasnít.

I see the word "hoppy" and immediately look the other way. A friend convinced me to try this beer and I was quite impressed! There is an oh-so-slight bitterness and hop flavor that smoothes out the beer to make for an excellent, refreshing drink. This pours with a shade not unlike orange juice.

Good and easy drinking, which I think is what they intended. The aroma was a hint of wheat, grass and hops but not like an IPA and more like a pale ale. The color was a very clear lemon or straw. It looked filtered. There was a nice sustainable head. The mouthfeel was medium weight with a slight crispness. Medium carbonation. The taste was well balanced with a definite presence of wheat and lemon. Hops were present with a slight amount of pine and citrus. Even finish. Would probably go well with a hamburger.

HOGEnHops (2) - Kansas, USA - FEB 9, 2013 does not count
Its combination of citrus, wheat and hops make a perfect blend for a fantastic beer. This is my go to beer for morning tailgates. You can drink this beer any time of day.

Pours a hazy golden yellow with a small head, good retention, and nice lacing. Aroma is citrusy hops and wheat. Taste is wheat, citrusy hops, and grapefruit. Tasty stuff.

12 oz bottle. Pours a pale golden color and cloudy with a big white head that dissipates slowly. A very welcoming aroma of citrus fruit and fresh wheat. Light body, thin texture. Flavor is wheat, bread, grains, light citrus hops. Finishes with a light bitterness. Easy to drink and fairly cheap (on sale: $5.99/6-pack). Pretty damn good for a wheat ale. (Note: "best by" date was 2 weeks ago)
