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.

12oz bottle. hazy golden-orange body. Thin, soapy, white head. A pleasant, mild citrus touch on top of the classic wheat aroma. I guess I’d be comfortable to call this one a White IPA, based on the citrus edge, but this shows how that could be a slippery slope. Medium bodied, yeasty, fresh, clean. A great session beer.

Tart lemon aroma and flavor, with peppery and herbal character. Pretty dry flavor; a little sweeter in finish, dry again in aftertaste. Nice biscuit/cereal malt flavor that comes out more in aftertaste.

MrBunn (2456) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 8, 2013
Bottle Pour is a hazy yellow/gold with a big fluffy head that dies down to a lot of clinging foam on the side of the glass and a few patches of it on the surface. Aromas are interestingly hoppy, but not quite what I expected... lots of lemon and pear with a little honey. Flavor follows along those lines... sweet and malty with a nice lemony edge to it. It’s kind of chewy on the palate at times, but still refreshing and nice enough.

Evolutionary (279) - Ohio, USA - JUL 24, 2013
Tap at pizano's in Chicago at the loop. Pour hazy yellow orange with persistent thicker frothy head. Nose is citrus and wheat. Good balanced mouthfeel and citrus jumps out at you up front. Some sweet sugary notes to balance the sharper citrus. Sits great with the open windows and summer day here. ---Rated via my mouth

Draft. Very nice light tasting IPA. What I would imagine real light beer should taste like. Worthy of buying a growler of it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pale and cloudy with a nice little solid head. Smells yeasty with lots of lemon and also pine and a nice amount of general American hop aroma. Prickly carbonation washes over the tongue giving way to flavors of candied lemon peel and grapefruit. Finishes clean with a subtle taste reminiscent of lemon heads. Leaves a pleasant tingling on the tongue and roof of the mouth. Good stuff! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

kramer (4896) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 9, 2013
Bottle Pours a slightly hazy yellow body with a nice frothy white head that left some heavy lacing. Couldn’t look much better in the glass. The flavor is really hoppy for a Wheat Ale, bright and citrusy with a yeasty wheat malt base. The flavor is equally hoppy with a lemony and citrusy hop punch up front. The bitterness is softened a bit by the light yeastiness and doughy pale malt and wheat base. Very refreshing and thirst quenching overall. Light bodied and crisp up front but finishes very soft and gentle with prickly carbonation. Really nice beer, much more interesting than the average Wheat Ale.

Draft at Howells & Hood. Pale yellow with a slight haze. Citrus and hops. Light and clean.

beastmaster (242) - Florida, USA - NOV 7, 2013
Smells like orange juice. Bottle pours cloudy golden yellow. Very flavorful wheat. Very unexpected based on what I read. Deliciously refreshing beet I’d like to have on a summer day. Unique and I like it!

Bottle poured a light milky yellow w/ a small fizzy lasting head. Moderate lemony hop aroma. Initial flavor is is light sweet w/ a faint bitter finish. Tastes are bread, straw, and citrus. Light bodied, lively carbonation, and a creamy mouthfeel.
