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.

Hazy straw golden in appearance, with a rich, frothy head of white suds. Lovely lace, too.

Aroma is pleasantly citrus-hoppy.

Taste is smooth, again with citrus hops dominating, but not in an overpowering way. 80-Acre displays a superb amount of balance between the hops and wheat-grain sharpness.

A delightful, easy-drinking session ale that is my new "go-to" Boulevard beer. Bravo, as this is one I'll gladly return to!

A: Cloudy lemon-yellow hue with a one-inch head that dissipates to a thin, steady film; lacing is mediocre

S: That smells awesome: pineapple, lemons, grapefruit, and other tropical fruit aromas on top of a grainy, grassy wheat malty base; such a brilliant blend of the two

T: Not quite as hop forward as aromas teased but still so much tropical fruits mingling with the malt base--what a beer--but a touch watery on the finish

F: Decent body with the residual stickiness from the hops but a tad thin on the finish

O: I am so glad Boulevard released this beer; now, along with their porter they have to go-to "regular" beers

Pours a cloudy, golden color. 5/4 inch head of a white color. Great retention and great lacing. Smells of hop oil, floral hops, hint of pine, wheat, hint of sweet malt, hint of pale malt, and a hint of earthy malt. Fits the style of an American Pale Wheat Ale. Mouth feel is smooth and clean, with an average carbonation level. There is also a slight tartness. Tastes of wheat, hint of citrus, hint of pale malt, hop oil, and floral hops. Overall, great appearance, good body, and good aroma. It reminiscent of Boulevard Unfiltered Wheat and Boulevard Single-Wide IPA.

Slightly hazey banana peel color. Godd head and a nice thick layer of foamy head with tiny, sluggish bubbles underneath.

Spicey, floral, and light citrus hop aromas mixed with crackers and mildly toasted malt grain.

Spicey, lightly toasted biscuits hit the palate first. The middle has a more citrus and cracker flavor. The finish is light and bitter, but with some earthy unmalted graininess.

Refreshing and tasty. Great Summer beer.
