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.

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.

Pours a cloudy pale gold wheat color with a nice white head. Aroma of lemongrass, floral hops, and wheat. Taste is really great, makes me forgot that it’s below zero outside and takes me to summer with a floral, lemon, and crisp finishing tatse. Love this beer !

DuffMan (7622) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - APR 26, 2014
Bottle shared with Parksy. Hazy lemon yellow. Perfumey citrus aroma. Lovely delicate perfumey hop character, kafir limes, lemon, with a creamy wheat base and relatively low bitterness. More like a hopfenweisse. Beautiful, so drinkable!

UPDATED: MAR 23, 2013 Keg at KCBM 2011 competition. Hoppy for sure, this is all hops with a week backbone. It came off too astringent for my taste. The hops turned into a cleaning product instead. I like the idea, but I would like to get something from the base wheat beer. 7/3/6/3/14.

Oh, this needs a re-rate. The bottled product is much better. Damn great hop mix with a subtle background of light wheat beer.

Foamy head, hazy gold color with lots of lacing. Orange, grass, pine, cedar and cheese with moderate carbonation and creamy mouthfeel. Quite good actually-not too sweet or bitter. Great hot weather beer.
