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.

Pours hazy, as you would expect from a hefeweizen, but still with a bright, yellow golden hue. Aroma stand-outs are of yeast and bready wheat, but with a hop undertone. Flavor is exactly what you'd expect: a sweet wheat with a touch of bitter finish. Tight carbonation and fluffy, wheat-driven stark white head. Very light mouth feel. This is a great representative of the new hoppy wheat trend, rivaled only by Hi-Wire's Hoppy Wheat.

Poured from 12oz bottle into pint glass

A- Pours a hazy golden color with a thin white head on top. Pretty average for this style.

S- Citrus Hops!!!! Get a nice wheat smell after that, but you got to love the smell of those hops.

T- This is more hoped than alot of APA's I have tried. Citrusy and grassy hops. Get a little orange flavor and of course that indistinguishable wheat taste.

M- Goes down oh so smooth. Just the right carbonation and just the right stick to your mouth feeling that good wheat beers have.

Overall a great beer. If only this was available on tap to get an even fresher taste!

Let me start by saying, I am not the biggest fan of over-hoppy IPA's that finish very bitter. This "hybrid" style starts very hoppy but finishes as smooth as any craft beer I have ever tried. I just loved this beer. I usually prefer the malty caramel styles(Sam Adams Octoberfest) but this IPA/wheat combo really stimulated my palate.

Smooth wheat beer and one of my "go-to" beers for something different than 312.
