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.

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

Bottled, poured into a Sam Adams glass. Aroma is hoppy citrus, very lemony. Cloudy yellow pour with a bright white head. Nice lacing. Lemony hop taste. Bready malt backbone. Nicely carbonated, very refreshing. One of my favorite session beers. A great combination of a refreshing wheat beer and a mildly hoppy ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy from my iPad.

12 oz. bottle thanks to queenholly. My weizen glass shows bright yellow color with tons of foamy head. Sheets of head retention down the glass. Great nose of lemons and yeasty wheat notes. The flavor is really flavorful. Grapefruit rind, Earthy yeasty wheat with a medium bitterness from citrus hops in the finish. Just enough malt to balance the beer and not have the hops over-power the wheat. Overall, I enjoy how the hops complement the wheat and don’t dominate. A session beer I could drink lots of and really damn refreshing. Also a beer I will buy more of. For me that speaks for itself!

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.

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

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 poured a cloudy gold with a lasting white head. Aromas of grapefruit, wheat, lemon zest and light earthiness. Palate was light bodied and crisp. Flavors of wheat, lemon zest and light grapefruit with a crisp lightly bitter citrus finish.
