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.

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.

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!

notalush (4631) - Denver, Colorado, USA - AUG 18, 2012
Hazy gold with a thick, soapy head that diminishes to a rather thick lace - aroma is a lively, zesty mix of tangy citrus, sweet melon and herbal/peppery hops - soft carbonation - flavor is initially sweet, with light tropical fruit flavors - the middle has some moderate citrus tang - tail end has some peppery hops, moderate herbs, some lemon rind - refreshing and lively - a nice addition to their six pack line up - if only the Stingo I drop 13 bucks on earlier this week were as good.

Bottle. Piney, floral citrus hops aroma. Hazy golden yellow with a moderate white head. Lemon, pine, floral citrus hops and light grainy wheat malt flavor. Light crisp body, lively carbonation. Really nice, well-balanced American wheat.

Hazy, yellow pour with a white head. The hoppy aroma has pine, grapefruit, and wheat. The light body has a crisp texture with lively carbonation. It has a bitter taste with some grapefruit rind flavor and a mildly dry finish.

First sampled from a 12 oz shorty, with a stamped on "best by" date. I live the in the KC metro, and this was a much anticipated release, and I wasn’t disappointed. A pretty big nose of fruity and citrus hops. It definitely drinks like a wheat, with a mouthfeel much like their Unfiltered Wheat. Very refreshing, and it will certainly be a staple, especially when the Midwest summer heat cranks up.
