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.

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.

I can't get over how this beer has the perfect blend of hops in my opinion. Every time I have a bottle it shocks how everything in 80 Acre balances so well together. I'm jonesing for another red tractor six pack while writing this. Created my account just to say this beer is kind of a big deal.

Golden color with a blonde head
Aroma: Big hop aroma up front.
Flavor: This is full bodied hopped flavor, finishing slightly citrus and smooth.
Overall: This is a well balanced beer. It has lots of hoppy flavor, but not overly bitter. The wheat base renders the beer very smooth. This is a very good wheat pale ale.
