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.

Very nice hybrid beer. Good mix of hops & wheat. Not overpowering on either side. Very smooth. Good flavor. No strong bitter aftertaste. If you're expecting an IPA, it's not very piney, but would buy a 6 pack & be happy.

Poured from 12 oz bottle into a pint glass. Nice head accumulation on the top with minimal lacing. At first smell, I couldn't pick up anything. It does have the citrusy bread smell associated with most wheats. I was a little underwhelmed. Its called Hoppy Wheat yet no smell of hops, no real taste of hops, and it looks like the IBU level is in the 20s. I expect quite a bit more for a beer with Hoppy in the name. That being said, it does have a different taste than a typical wheat. Its very drinkable and is a nice twist on wheat beers. Just wish they'd hopped it up a bit more.

This would be a delicious summer beer. Talk about an exceptionally refreshing beer. This is smooth, super easy to drink. Layers of wheat, mild malt, lemon, and mild hops on the back end. It was a cloudy yellow color with about an inch of head. Absolutely awesome for the style.

Will absolutely seek out and purchase again. This one was awesome. If it ever becomes available in cans, this could be a go to for float trips and outdoor excursions.

Well rounded taste, and I love the cloudy sediment/Hefe-pulp, but the texture is too effervescent (fizzy) for me.
