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.

Lemon yellow, translucent and slightly hazy ale. Huge froth on the pour with excellent retention and patches of lacing which retreat partially back into the brew.

Bright and fresh wheat, grass and citrus aroma.

Flavors follow the nose. Malty in the beginning with a bready wheat character. Turns to a lemon and grass hop bitterness in perfect balance with the malt. Finish is crisp.

Light in body. Tons of lively bubbles. Smooth in the middle and slightly dry in the finish.

A perfect summer session beer. Light and crisp yet with plenty of flavor and perfectly balanced.

Best by 07/29/13

A: Slightly hazy, golden-yellow with a fluffy, bright white head that builds and fades pretty quickly. Decent lace and retention.

S: Lots of hops followed by citrusy aromas and some wheat & malt.

T: Super balanced with plenty of hop flavor yet mellowed out by the wheat. Nice. Citrus is in the finish but it doesn't seem to come from the hops. Although the hops are definitely citrusy and slightly tropical. Very delicious and spot-on for the style.

M: Good body, refreshing, clean, and surprisingly citrusy while also having plenty of discernible wheat qualities.

O: Seriously delicious beer that I will seek out in 6-packs.
