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.

Hazy pale gold with a small tight rocky head. Nose was beautifully hopped, like fresh-picked wet hops with a grassy/floral/grapefruity nose on top of a subtle malty sweet undertone. Flavor brings a lot of the wheat forward with earthy wheat flavors sweetness, a bit of citric sweetness as well, with a lot of the same wet-hoppy tones from the nose...grassy, floral, and quiet not-too-acidic grapefruit. Bitterness was present and balancing though not too strong. Just sat exactly where it needs to be to accentuate the earthy sweet wheat flavors. Lovely.

It reminds me a lot of blue moon. It has strong notes of citrus on the front and a nice balance of hops.

Lager glass. Notes of lemon and hops, smells refreshing. Pours a cloudy gold/yellow with a thick foamy head, some lacing, good carbonation. Different taste then what I expected, its very drinkable. A bit of lemon/wheat at the front with a nice light hops taste at the rear. An excellent beer, really enjoyable.

A good mixed beer, easy to drink, has a nice hop and is sweet. Great beer to pass around and share with casual beer drinkers.

Refreshing without being fruity or light. Slightly hoppy, slightly malty. Bright yellow and slightly cloudy, with minimal head.

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.
