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.

Served on-tap at The Tip Tap Room in Boston, MA

A: Pours a cloudy pale yellow in color with moderate amounts of particles in suspension, light amounts of visible carbonation, and some light amber highlights. The beer has a finger tall foamy white head that slowly reduces to a very thin film covering the majority of the surface of the beer and a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Light amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Light to moderate aromas of wheat underneath slightly stronger aromas of citrus/orange/lemon hops and just a hint of grassy hops.

T: Upfront there are light to moderate flavors of wheat with a light hint of sweet lemon. That is followed by moderate flavors of citrus/orange, grassy, and floral hops. Light amounts of bitterness which linger slightly.

M: Slightly heavier than light bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Slightly dry in the finish.

O: I really enjoy both hoppy beers and wheat beers so this combination really worked for me. Easy to drink, enjoyable, and sessionable.

Hazy golden colored body; a poofy, lumpy head sits atop leaving behind some thick lacing. Aromas are initially floral hops before turning super juicy and bright. Freshly squeezed OJ, lemon, and other citrus surrounding a subtle biscuity wheat note. Pleasant, gentle hop flavors, lemon tea, wheat, mellow citrus juice, and a floral sweetness. Drying in the finish, fluffy, light, and crisp. I had one while grilling and I imagine that's a perfect situation for drinking this beer.

Bottle BB 8/8/13.

A: Hazy gold, good retaining three finger head. Great lace.

S: Big sweet citrus punch, oranges, tangerine, malted wheat twang in the back.

T: A bit subdued compared to the flavor, tropical fruit punch kick, lemons, grapefruit etc. with you're standard a herbal, wheaty twang. Slightly grassy on the finish.

M: Feels light to medium, smooth, actually very smooth. Drinks real easy.

O: Summer beer for sure. Wheats aren't my favorite style, but this does a nice combo of an IPA and a wheat. Nose was the star of the show however. Would make a great warm weather brew fur shur.
