Notes/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.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Pours a nice, hazy, straw colored body beneath the foamy, white head as lively bubbles of carbonation dance to the top. The head dissolves quickly initially, then has faint remnants of lacing that hang around for the duration.

Very nice aromas of lemon, grass, wheat, and of course a touch of herbal and/or floral hops float from the glass.

The flavor is similar to the aroma, perhaps a touch lighter on the grass and lemon and more pronounced on the wheat. The hops have the appropriate amount of subtlety, and are a nice compliment.

Lighter to medium in body with a crisp, fresh mouthfeel and a bit generous on the carbonation.

A great American Wheat Ale one may expect from the midwest. With the "American" aka hop twist, its a touch of midwest meets California.

3.81/5  rDev -2.8%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a SA Perfect Pint. Dated best by 8/10/14. Appears a hazy golden color with one finger of white, bubbly head. The head dissipates quickly to a white ring around the glass.

The nose is slightly sweet from the wheat, along with nice citrus note. That is more muted, but guessing it is a touch more present if it was more fresh. The taste is very refreshing, with the wheat and citrus coming through nicely. There is also a touch of tropical fruit, which fits in very well here. The finish is slightly bitter, but is not overpowering.

The mouthfeel is medium-light, with a good amount of carbonation. The finish is slightly sticky. Overall, this is a very refreshing beer. The light feel, tropical and citrus notes, and higher levels of carbonation keep you going back for more.

Pours a very golden straw color with some foamy white head. Smell is pretty sweet, with a lot of wheat and malt aroma and a touch of hops. Taste is almost all wheat beer. Not bad at all, but not really any hop flavor. 3 or 4 years ago I would have absolutely loved this beer. It is just missing that kick that Sumpin' Sumpin' and Gumballhead have. Don't get me wrong. Still a very good beer and I will drink the 6 I have happily. However, if you are looking for a true "hoppy wheat" try one of the others. If you are looking for something more balanced, or even tipping the scale the other way, I would recommend this for sure.
