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.

Tap at Iowa City Brewfest. Gorgeous fresh hop aroma, lightly grassy and full of fresh citrus hops, light wheat malt character, just fantastic. Pours cloudy straw/golden color with a thick white head, good retention and plenty of lacing. Flavor just as impressive as the nose; great fresh hops, cut hay, citrus, wheat, very crisp throughout, faint tartness in the background. Sticky, fresh floral hops are really well done in this brew. Light body, medium/high carbonation. Incredibly flavorful and drinkable for a 5% abv beer, this will certainly be one of my go-to beers if/when it comes out in bottles, delicious!

I’m surprised how much I like this beer. fruit, hops and a little bread on the nose. Taste is sweet, grapefruit, orange, piney. finish is bitter and dry; i want more of this. Might be my new session beer

A great new addition. Pours dark yellow and cloudy. Citrus, grass, and resin. Body of a wheat beer and slick mouthfeel. Tried this one before it had a name at the brewery courtesy of Jason.

A nice crisp taste with hoppy aromas. White head and semi clear yellow body. Definitely worth trying if you come across it.

Fragrance is really nice pours with a wonderful white head and is really a refreshing brew. Just the right blend of hops for a wheat beer. really different well brewed. Great summer beer, (even in the winter)

Pours a very hazy yellow with a smaller bubbly white head. Aroma of citrusy hops, great citrusy hop nose actually. Malt profile is pretty minimal and let’s the hops really shine. Flavor of a great citrusy and piney hop profile. Moderate hop bitterness. Pretty much a hoppy wheat based IPA. Really like it a lot. Drink this fresh and you will be impressed (if you like fresh hoppy, really dry IPAs with little to no specialty malts to sweeten it up)

Draft at Jerry’s. Hazy yellow with good, foamy, white head, some legs / Nose of lemon, resin, grass / Light to medium body, just a hint thin, soft carbonation, fruity but dry with nice bitterness / Flavors of wheat, lemon, grass, resin, hint of spice (clove, coriander) / An elegant, nicely balanced, wheat.

On tap at Taco Mac. 20 oz pour. Cloudy, straw color typical of a wheat beer. A good bit of hops, like a pale ale or even some IPAs, and very easy to drink. The perfect summer beer for an IPA lover.

Tap. Hazy gold. Good lacing. Fruity, yeasty, and hoppy aroma. Initial spicy bite, then well balanced throughout. Very good and drinkable. Happy to say it was just what I expected.

Wow! Picked up one as part of a make your own 6-pack. Now I wish I had grabbed a few more. A very good mix of a wheat and IPA. A hoppy, lemon aroma, with a light golden color. A crisp, clean flavor. Would make for a great summer brew. I could throw many of these back at a time.
