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.

Taste is an odd, bitter and sweet, with a funky spiced bread aftertaste. Light enough to be refreshing, zesty enough to bite back. Grrrrrrr hissssss ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Unfiltered straw color pour with medium to light white head and no lacing. West coast hop aroma. Lots of citrus and some pine. I pick up some traditional wheat aromas as well. Some grassiness and some yeast esters. Highly carbonated. Pretty good balance between both styles. Most wheat IPA's are either too much wheat or too much ipa. This is a good mix. Estery, sweet, grassy malt character with citrusy and caramel pale ale character. Good refreshing beer. ---Rated via iPhone

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.

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 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.
