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.

Hazy pale gold with a small tight rocky head. Nose was beautifully hopped, like fresh-picked wet hops with a grassy/floral/grapefruity nose on top of a subtle malty sweet undertone. Flavor brings a lot of the wheat forward with earthy wheat flavors sweetness, a bit of citric sweetness as well, with a lot of the same wet-hoppy tones from the nose...grassy, floral, and quiet not-too-acidic grapefruit. Bitterness was present and balancing though not too strong. Just sat exactly where it needs to be to accentuate the earthy sweet wheat flavors. Lovely.

Ok; interesting. I wouldn't buy again but it's an interesting(good)take on a wheat beer(especially if you like hops). The touch of hoppyness would make me choose this over your average wheat beer, but not over a great wheat beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

If I had had to choose between hoppy wheat or wheat, i’d choose the hoppy wheat. The hoppiness comes through in the aroma more than the taste. I dig

Draft. Hazy golden pour. Nose is huge citrus, clove, light pine, honey. Flavor is strong citrus, unripened citrus, wheat with a lightly bitter finish. Great mouthfeel.

Pours a hazy yellow from the bottle with thin lacy ring of head that doesn’t really stick on the way down. Aroma and taste are of fresh piney hops, backed by a nice wheat malt backbone. Good stuff.

Bottle at RBWG 2013 Grand Tasting. Pours clear yellow with a light, white foam head. Sweet wheat, citrus. Good balance, not too sweet. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Clean finish, wheat and biscuity malts. Tasty.

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 isn’t a bad thing in this case. Crisp and thirst-quenching. Highly carbonated and a bit foamy in the mouth. Very interesting and tasty.

ArrogantDusty (40) - Missouri, USA - FEB 19, 2013
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.

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.
