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 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: Typical hazy looks are present in this beer. There is no lacing left on the glass when you drink it, and there is a quarter finger of head which had excellent retention. The color did look a little bit pissy, but that may have just been poor lighting.

Smell: Overwhelmingly citrus almost to a point of too much (but not too much). I pick up lots of orange peel and mango. A little bitter hop smell is there, but not the dominant smell for sure. The smells seem to be just the citrus which disappoints me because I was looking for more scents to be happening.

Taste: This brew is super sweet and tasty. I did not get the awful metallic flavors that usually come along with wheat ales and I did not get the rough bitterness that comes along with hoppy beers. This thing was in a category all by itself. There was even a bit of a sour finish which totally got me psyched. The taste was balanced, strong, and had enough going on to keep me interested throughout the entire glass.

Mouthfeel: Crisp and clean due to the light body and moderate carbonation. Great for the beer that was given.

OverallL A fantastic beer that really caught me by surprise. I am definitely going to recommend to others who can;t seem to find a hoppy beer that they like.
