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.

Zesty notes of lemon and tangerine meet grapefruit and mango and are accompanied by resin, floral notes, and wheat to form the aroma. Very complex initially, but lemon ends up dominating as it warms.

Flavor pales a bit in comparison. Grapefruit, mango, and orange open the profile and are quickly replaced with wheat and lightly sweet, biscuity malt mid palate, finishing on the sweet side, but a touch peppery.

Wish the hop flavoring matched the aroma.

I am drinking this three months before its best by date and it has a big hop nose with pine over grass. It pours hazy pale straw under a thick, moussey 2” finely bubbled off-white foam cap. The flavors are very well rounded and the body and texture suggest the presence of some Belgian yeast. It has more hops than a normal wheat beer but they are restrained and not over powering. A hint of caramel on the palate combined with traces of bready wheat constrains and balances the hops. This is full bodied with above average creamy soft carbonation.

The perfect combination of all things awesome. Tasted wheaty but hoppy.
