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: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

12oz bottle, pours a hazy yellow with a tall, bubbly, white head, decent retention, excellent lacing as the head fades. Citric hop, lemon rind, grapefruit, and orange permeate the nose. Tastes are fresh with citrus, lemon, grapefruit, grape, moderately bitter, finishes dry with faint pine. Not much for malt character; faint wheat. Mouth-feel is thinner than expected for a wheat ale, moderate carbonation. Overall, not bad, but comes across as drinking some sort of a lemon cleaner at times. I was hoping for some of the wheat and malt characteristics to come through, but hops prevail here.

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.
