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.

Poured from the bottle into a wheat ale glass.

A real nice glowing lemon yellow, opaque with great hues of clear green towards the bottom. Head billows a real super shampoo white, with big retention and huge clumping lacing. Lots of stuck chunks, minimal rising carbonation, but one real nice looking beer.

Nose is subtle and a bit small. Mild floral sense of hop, light faint grass. A little bit of burnt phenol plastic quality though.

Palate hits with a little bit of wetness, not much of a chewy what like density. Slightly grainy finish, but there's a nice sense of crisp hop feel here on the swallow. Clean, a little hint of density. Muted lemon and citrus, but also with a bit of flat soda tasting quality.

Overall not bad, but not seeing where this hoppy angle is suppose to come in. Decent brew, but I think I prefer the regular wheat than this.

a. straw with a touch of orange. not completly clear. a big, rocky white head that settles to a respectable layer of little bubbles and leave nice splotches of lacing on the glass.

s. cereal grains, oranges, and lemons.

t: a little sweet at first, turning into a grass and husk flavor, a bit of wheat twang leading into sweet orange/lemon and a touch of bitterness from the hops.

m. nothing too great here, medium body and level of carbonation.

o. a pretty nice mix of wheat and hops here. would drink this regularly given it was available in my area and decently priced. the only change i would like would to be to tone down the sweetness a touch. a big thumbs up to the wife for picking this out of the blue for me on a trip to missouri based on the fact she knows i like wheat beers and ipas/hops.
