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 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.

Bubbly hazy yellow brew with small head. Smells a faint lemon grass and gatorade. Good mix of citrus hops to this wheat making it taste better than the aroma led me to believe. This is like a hopped up Hefeweizen and is pretty good stuff. Got this in a winter sampler but this is a definate summer time beer. Would like to find a 12 pack of this long about April or May (that’s when summer starts round here).

Pours hazy golden with low white head. Aroma of citrus, wheat, light pine, mango. Taste is sweetish initially followed by light hoppy, almost orange like. Body is light and smooth, average carbonation.

Bottle at home. Aroma is mainly citrus and piney hops, some light wheat and hay notes. Flavor is lightly hopped with citrus notes the most. wheat stands out more in the flavor. Not bad.

HonusWagner (1630) - Florida, USA - NOV 25, 2014
Not at Gumballhead or Sumpin levels but a good hoppy wheat with grassy and lightly citrusy notes on a lean wheat body. Refreshing and tasty, and nothing like an IPA despite the hoppy inclination.

S_Side_Smitty (488) - Lakeland, Florida, USA - NOV 28, 2014
Pours yellow-gold and cloudy with a thick white head. Aroma is sweet fermented grains and faint spice. Taste is a silky smooth light wheat ale. The wheat is very prominent in this one and blended well with the syrupy sweetness. There is a mildly bitter mid and finish (long finish) from the hops. Not bad.

Bartzilla (551) - La Mesa, California, USA - NOV 4, 2014
I bought this on clearance at Trader Joe’s in St. Louis. It’s past date but was still very tasty. Piney and subtly sweet. Not as awesome as my favorite hoppy IPA by Modern Times, but right up there in style and overall satisfaction. A++++, would buy again.

floydslip (202) - Washington DC, USA - DEC 23, 2014
Cloudy straw colored beer with a thick pillowy bright white head. Nose of orange peel, lemongrass, and coriander. Flavor is bright with citrus, which gives way to a mild resinous bitterness followed by refreshing sour spice. Crisp and refreshing, this is a delicious beer that would be great on a hot summer day.
