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.

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.

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.
