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.

3.9/5  rDev -0.5%
look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Appearance: Pours a pale, hazy straw color with about 1/2" of white head. Head retention is just okay. Lacing is non-existent. Just about your typical looking wheat beer.

Smell: The nose on this is very good. A hint of pale, wheaty malt up front, but quickly overshadowed by orange rind, citrus, florals, and hint of pine. By far one of the best noses on a wheat beer I have had.

Taste: A hint of wheaty malts, followed by some great hop notes. Citrus, florals, orange rind, followed by slight pine on the back end. Pretty nice. About the only beef I have is that it is not quite balanced; the pale malts do not really stand up to the hops. Still, nice.

Mouthfeel/Overall: Light bodied with surprising little carbonation. Okay though. Overall, by far one of the best wheats I've had. Great session beer too. Pretty impressed by this.

Serving type: bottle

3.55/5  rDev -9.4%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: straw yellow to a golden yellow color. huge 2-3 finger foamy white head that fades a little too quickly but leaves a nice strong lacing behind. completely cloudy and opaque.

Smell: very sweet wheaty smell, a touch of bubblegum, the smell is quite hoppy, lots of citrus, some earthiness and a little pine.

Taste: opens up with lots of initial sweetness, lots from wheat, some caramel malts and some bubblegum. Hops come in at the end but are completely overwhelmed by the sweet malts. some citrus, earth and pine again.

Mouthfeel: nice and light, not quite as refreshing as i'd like do to the overpowering sweetness

Overall: the hoppiness worked very well in the aroma, but falls off just a little too much in the taste. If that balance worked out this would be a very nice wheat beer.
