COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Bottle. Pours light hazy golden orange with a small white head. Aroma is fruity tropical hops and some nice citric notes. Some honey and a light wheat character. Flavor is citric, sweet with some melon, tropical notes and a soft wheat finish. Medium body and a crisp carbonation. Good beer

Hazy yellow color out of the bottle with a short lived foamy white head. Light citrusy hop nose with some spice notes. Very flavorful beer with some clove spice and lots of orange peel, tangerine and lemon drop. I wish this was available locally.

Pours golden and clouded with a thick foamy white head. Aroma is citrusy with a yeasty backbone. Flavor sweet. Pretty malt heavy, hop flavors are weak. Very smooth, feels a little oily. Overall not bad but nothing I would search out.

I poured it from the bottle into a glass. It poured a hazy gold color with a big white head and lacing. The aroma is fruit and grain. The taste is fruit and wheat with some hops and a nice sour citrus aftertaste. Itís a nice, smooth, refreshing wheat beer. Itís pretty complex for the style.

Good frothy head that lingers. Lots of flavors going on. Kinda tastes like singlewide ipa meets boulevard wheat.

12 ounce bottle into pint glass, best before 4/23/2015. Pours hazy deep golden yellow color with a 2 finger dense and rocky white head with good retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big grapefruit, tangerine, lemon zest, orange peel, pine, wheat, cracker, and herbal/grassy earthiness. Very nice aromas with bright citrus/piney hops and light-moderate pale malt notes; with good strength. Taste of grapefruit, tangerine, lemon zest, orange peel, pine, wheat, cracker, and herbal/grassy earthiness. Light pine/grassy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, tangerine, lemon/orange zest, light pine, wheat, cracker, and herbal/grassy earthiness on the finish for a short bit. Very nice complexity of bright citrus/piney hops and light-moderate pale malt flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and light-medium bodied; with a very smooth, crisp, and lightly sticky/bready mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish as expected of 5.5%. Overall this is a very nice hoppy pale wheat ale. All around good compelxity and robustness of bright citrus/piney hops and light-moderate pale malt flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

Pours hazy straw color with a 2-finger white head. Aroma of grapefruit hops with a note of grass mixed in. Maybe some lemon too. Medium body, lightly watery, with a brief finish. Flavor of grapefruit, with notes of black pepper and grass. Some earthy yeast as well.

Ok definitely a hybrid. Flavor explosion. Session? Malt mild. Not strong on wheat, hop malt. Over all very good. Would drink again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Hazy, deep yellow with a tall white head. Citrusy aroma, with some hops. Kind of a slightly hoppy wheat beer, as advertised. Pretty good.

Pours cream soda color. Itís cloudy, I love it!. Pretty nice thick and foamy head, decent lacing.

Aroma is grapefruit and citrus. Hops are pretty strong too. It really smells great!

I taste citrus right away, hops arenít as strong as expected and the wheat is stronger than expected. That great citrus aroma really adds to the flavor. Itís well balanced between sweet and bitter.

Mouthfeel is a toughie. Itís hoppy bitter finish, and wheaty aftertaste. Itís a medium-light mouthfeel.

Overall I was surprised, This is delicious. Thereís a lot going on within this beer, and itís great. Must try!!
