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.

bhensonb (11060) - Woodland, California, USA - JAN 2, 2013
Bottle from Malt & Vine. Pours hazy light gold with a creamy/bubbly white head. Aroma is fairly hoppy. Mixed hop. Med body. Flavor is fruity/wheaty. There’s a certain problem with this hopped up wheat - suggests something of an off-flavor. But to concentrate on the hop - it’s hoppy, finishing dry with some suggestions of grapefruit rind.

adnielsen (9077) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUN 1, 2013
Bottle @ home thanks to jcnielsen. Thanks Justin! Pours a murky yellow, dull golden appearance with a fluffy white head. Fresh resinous, piney, dank hoppy, just a touch fruity aroma. Smells very nice but more like a strong IPA. I definitely don’t detect gasoline like some others. Soft mouth feel. Spritzy lemon citrusy, a bit sweet but fairly dry, herbal, dank hoppy flavor. Super easy to drink but far hoppier than a typical wheat beer. Definitely need to pick up more of these in the future.
