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.

Great beer, i really enjoy the hop profile yet the bitterness for me is real smooth, very bright and citrusy and a little more carbonated which works in its favor

Serving: Bottle into pint
Served: 20 August 2014

Appearance: Pours a hazy light yellow color with lively carbonation and a one and a half finger head that dissipates to a half finger. Leaves great lacing. Looks like a pale wheat beer. 4/5

Smell: This is where the beer begins to stand out- the nose has some of the sweet balancing effects of the wheat- some notes of banana softness- but is also overlaid with a nice clean and lively citrus hoppiness. 4/5

Taste: This is where the beer stands out above the rest. The beer is magnificently balanced in almost all regards- you drink this and you can tell it's a wheat beer from the soft sweetness and slight white-wine and banana notes from the interplay with the wheat and the yeast. At the same time, a refreshing citrus hop bite is there, but in the perfect proportion- it doesn't overpower the beer and it doesn't give it a harsh edge like many other hoppy pale wheats. 4.25/5

Mouthfeel: Medium carbonation and good body. 4/5.

Overall: An incredible pale wheat beer, and importantly, one that isn't trying to be something it's not. While Oberon is and remains the standard for traditional pale wheat ales, this in my book is a marvelous middle ground between Oberon and A Little Sumpin' Sumpin' which is a wheat ale that drinks like an IPA. This is definitely a wheat beer, but has just enough additional hops to really stand out without blurring the style line too much. Very impressed.
