This is a pretty unique brew, so I'm not sure any particular style suits it completely. It's a nice light wheat with a slightly over the top hop profile, and the hops they chose complement the yeast and malts very well.

It is a cloudy yellow color with just a bit of fizz. The aroma is not particularly strong, but still interesting. The balance of hops with the yeast taste works really well.

The aftertaste is pretty clean and very refreshing. You want another.

This is a great drink!

Poured into a shaker pint glass.

The beer is a hazy burnt peach color. A white head recedes to a bubbly film. Light lines of lacing hang on the glass.

The beer smells of malts and a strong grassy hay aroma. Hops arrive late offering some citrus.

The beer tastes really balanced and diverse. Faint malts give way to fruity floral notes such as orange and apricot. There's also some woody pine and citric notes like grapefruit rinds.

The mouthfeel is bright and refreshing.

Overall, incredibly interesting, tasty, and refreshing. ABV is 5%.

From my friends of Breckenridge Brewery, 12 ounces of hoppy wheat ale. On to the beer:

How about a cloudy blonde colored beer with some visible bubbles running through the body? Sounds good, eh? Topping it is a head which a hybrid of soapy and creamy head characteristics, leaving a lot of good lace around. The aroma is "crisp", pleasantly hoppy, perhaps even dank as some might say.

The wheat ale backbone is a sturdy canvas for the hoppy character of this beer. It's quite hoppy, and it brings notes of orange, a vague pepper spice, grassy notes, and delicate melon too. This is backed by a light body with gently crisp carbonation, which in the end makes this a pleasantly made beer.

I am a fan of the Ophelia...certainly can compete with Blvd 80-Acre Hoppy Wheat. The beer poured a hazy unfiltered yellow with virtually no head and no lace. The smell was a good mix of citrus hops and wheat. The taste was a very good balance of bready malt and citrus hops. The mouthfeel was medium in body with good carbonation. Overall this is a great beer and would certainly try it again.

4.03/5  rDev +14.2%

Poured into a tulip. Hazy color typical for a wheat beer. Thin foamy head with slight lacing on the side of the glass. Slight piney, wheat smell. Pale wheat taste with slight hop bitterness midway through the drink. Mild bitter aftertaste. Wheat taste does overpower the bitterness a bit. Wheat beer was my first love when it came to craft beers, but I have become more of a hop head. So, I do enjoy the combination, but I wish it was more hoppy. It is definitely a beer I can enjoy and would gladly drink again.

4/5  rDev +13.3%

A - A cloudy orange/yellow color with a minimal head

S - Subtle grapefruit and hoppy

T - Fuller bodied than expected, get the grapefruit citrus up front and the hoppy finish. Surprisingly good body and taste for a wheat.

M - The body adds to the mouthfeel.

O - Excellent beer. Better than anticipated.
