With roots in two of todayís 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 yellow with a medium-sized, bright white head. Moderate spruce up front in the nose turns pleasantly fruity (peaches) and a touch yeasty with very mild banana phenols. The flavor is a rather nutty wheat with zesty orange and grapefruit hoppiness. The nutty, cracker-reminiscent wheat partnered with the moderate bitterness is quite delicious and something I havenít experienced to quite this degree before. Body is slightly sticky with light yet sharp carbonation. This greatly exceed my expectations.

12 oz bottle. Pours hazy yellow with a dissipating white head; leaves a skiff of foam and a little lace. Aroma consists of citrus powder drink, cooked vegetables (chilies?), catbox. Taste is a weird mixture of Bavarian Hefeweizen (clove) and IPA (citrusy hops). Weird isnít a bad thing in this case. Crisp and thirst-quenching. Highly carbonated and a bit foamy in the mouth. Very interesting and tasty.

Unfiltered straw color pour with medium to light white head and no lacing. West coast hop aroma. Lots of citrus and some pine. I pick up some traditional wheat aromas as well. Some grassiness and some yeast esters. Highly carbonated. Pretty good balance between both styles. Most wheat IPA's are either too much wheat or too much ipa. This is a good mix. Estery, sweet, grassy malt character with citrusy and caramel pale ale character. Good refreshing beer. ---Rated via iPhone

The aroma reminds you of citrus hops and sweet bread yeast, and the appearance fuses a hazy golden color with a large white and frothy head. The taste is mildly bitter, slightly sweet, and a touch sour, and the palate combines a medium body, slick texture, an abrupt finish, and a soft carbonation.

Bottle into a fluted glass. Pours hazy yellow with a dense white pillow of head. Tropical fruit, grass, and spicy yeast on the nose. Taste is smooth and hoppy. Mango, pineapple, grass, spice. Real refreshing.

Bottle @ home thanks to jcnielsen. Thanks Justin! Pours a murky yellow, dull golden appearance with a fluffy white head. Fresh resinous, piney, dank hoppy, just a touch fruity aroma. Smells very nice but more like a strong IPA. I definitely donít detect gasoline like some others. Soft mouth feel. Spritzy lemon citrusy, a bit sweet but fairly dry, herbal, dank hoppy flavor. Super easy to drink but far hoppier than a typical wheat beer. Definitely need to pick up more of these in the future.

Cybercat (3888) - Georgia, USA - JUN 2, 2013
Strong aroma is wheaty and hoppy with a subtle undertone of citrus, the latter mainly orange. Pours a slightly hazy solar yellow with a fairly thick and fluffy eggshell head. Distinctive and satisfying flavor has good wheaty and hoppy notes as well as a malty and citrus undertone, like a superior wheat mixed with a superior IPA. Wheat beers are not my favorite, but I enjoy a good wheat beer, and I love hoppy beers. Smooth, fairly viscous texture has plenty of fizz and leaves a wheaty, fruity, hoppy finish. 80 acres or 32 hectares, an interesting and enjoyable beer.

coolpop (1394) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - JUN 5, 2013
Draft. Poured a hazy straw with a medium-sized, fluffy white head. Aroma was lemon, orange, moderately hoppy. Flavor is lots of citrus, some wheat, mild yeastiness. Surprisingly complex hop flavor. Spritzy on tongue. LIght to medium body. Very good.

Cavie (4005) - Fort Worth, Texas, USA - JUN 5, 2013
Tap at T&P Tavern. Pours a hazy golden yellow color; almost orange. Very little head or carbonation. Aroma is candied sugar, sweet malt, hops and wheat. Flavor is sweet, fruity citrus, hoppy. Great finish. This is nice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Best by 09/21/13. Beer pours out a cloudy golden color with a somewhat sticky head. Smells very great it smells like citrus hops, some piney hops, wheat, malt, vanilla and spicy lavender. Taste very citric and tangy, quite refreshing. The pallet in mouth feel is fine perhaps a tad thin. Overall a really nice hoppy wheat beer reminds me of perhaps what 312 was like years and years ago but with the more emphasis on the hops and a citrus refreshing character. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
