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 cloudy bright yellow-gold with a thick white head. Aroma is all citrusy, grassy hops, very nice. Flavor is light and fresh, citrus and flower and grass again, with a nice, light wheat undertone. Palate is also light and fresh, not overly carbonated but still light enough to be refreshing. This is a truly excellent new style of beer that combines the very best of IPA and American wheat beer. One of the best and most refreshing summer beers available.

A random pick at a restaurant that paid off sooooooooooooooooooooooo well. Pint at Panifico (great food try this place) Boston. Golden pour with a thick white head. Nose of cilantro, wheat malt, touch of soap. The taste is sweeter up front, lovely creaminess, cilantro grains of paradise? Very drinkable. Great beer!

I think of it as a wheat IPA. It as the generous hops of a citrusy IPA and the smooth malt backbone of a wheat beer. Eminently drinkable. A perfect summer beer.

Bottle. Pours hazy pale golden medium white head. Aroma of citrus, floral, banana, grass. Taste is sweet and tart and a little bitter. Medium body, higher than ave. carbonation, sticky texture. Interesting take on the wheat ale. A lot going on that doesn’t always go together but pretty good overall.

What else can I really say the name describes it all a hoppy wheat ale. The hops are a little on the fruity sweet side that pairs well with the crisp wheat characters. I think this could set its own style of highly hopped wheat beers. I just don’t want to call it IOWa.

UPDATED: JUN 19, 2014 12oz bottle poured into a Weizen glass. Sweet banana and vanilla are noticeable immediately followed by notes of grass, lemon, and a lemon and orange citrus. There’s also a slightly sweaty note to it, but that fades fairly quickly. Late in the drink, aromas of fresh biscuits start to poke through. The beer is a very cloudy and hazy straw-lemon yellow color with a fluffy white, foam head (kinda whipped egg looking) that leaves above average lace down the glass. A thick puffy ring is retained with a light, puffy island of head floating in the middle. It’s a mellow, medium bitterness with a medium-high, yet subtle sweetness, and a faint touch of sour. A moderate amount of soft, fuzzy carbonation combines with a light, oily texture on the mouthfeel. The beer has a medium-full grainy body which finished dry with notes of grass and clove, accompanied by a citrus crispness. Some buttery caramel and biscuit come through the finish later in the drink. Wheat and grass flavors, with a citrus zest, stick around in the aftertaste which is light and refreshing.
