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.

JDBaker11058 (1366) - Maryland, USA - MAY 31, 2014
Appearance: cloudy medium yellow, short but electric white head. Aroma: bright citrus, grassy, lightly piney hops, hint of banana and clove. Taste: big citrus (grapefruit, orange, lemon), light grass/herb hops, honey smacks, banana, clove, hint of coriander (?) and mineral water. Finish: lingering grassy, floral hops over a toasty, wheaty note. Notes: On draft at Founding Farmers in Potomac, MD. Absolutely excellent. Definitely hoppier than the average wheat beer, but the hops simply add to the refreshing nature of the beer, and give it a nice zing. Quite well done.

Nsanders (569) - St Paul, Minnesota, USA - MAY 29, 2014
Bottle. Cloudy yellow with a thin white bubbly head. Resiny citrus hop and wheat bread. Flavor is bready with a lightly bitter lemon finish that fades quickly. Body is medium with a a light filmy feel. Similar to the Midcoast IPA, but dialed back on the yeast and hops.

I was sipping this and I got a mouthful of cigar smoke from someone nearby and all of a sudden became a proponent of second hand smoke it tasted so good. Anyway, pours slightly hazy with good head and lacing. Finishes with light sourness. On tap at DC Summerfest.

Homer321 (2146) - Rock Ridge, Florida, USA - MAY 25, 2014
Draft in savannah. A huge holy and citrus nose with grapefruit and tangerine. Pours a cloudy light yellow with medium sized white head. Laces well on the glass. Flavor is a hop focused lightly sweet and grainy beer. Moderate carbonation and quenching. Very enjoyable.

Nephilium (1415) - Ohio, USA - MAY 21, 2014
Clean hop aroma, pours a hazy light straw with a thin white head. Nice and refreshing flavor, with a very hop forward bite that almost threatens to overpower the wheat. Lingering citrus hop finish, and light bodied. A great beer to drink on a hot day.

haddon90 (1492) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAY 11, 2014
Bottle. Pours a hazy lemon color with little to no head. Hoppy and wheaty aroma. Interesting combo. Nice, wheat taste with a dry hop finish. Great balance. Very interesting beer.

DuffMan (7032) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - APR 26, 2014
Bottle shared with Parksy. Hazy lemon yellow. Perfumey citrus aroma. Lovely delicate perfumey hop character, kafir limes, lemon, with a creamy wheat base and relatively low bitterness. More like a hopfenweisse. Beautiful, so drinkable!

Pours hazy golden with white head. Citrus aroma of orange and lemon grass. Some wheat notes. Nice medium body. More wheat in the taste. Citrus follows through. Finished clean.
