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.

80 Acre Hoppy Wheat brewed by Boulevard Brewing Co., with an ABV of 5.50% This brew pours out a cloudy light amber color with a nice white head. 80 Acre Hoppy Wheat is an unfiltered brew, you can not see though it. The smell is sweet, citrus , with hops. You also pick up on some grains and malts in the smell of this brew. The taste is rich with flavor. You pick up citrus and some nice malts . This is a nice wheat brew. The mouthfeel is bold and smooth. You pick up on the citrus but it has a clean finish to it. There is nothing overpowering in this brew. 80 Acre Hoppy Wheat has a nice balance to it. Overall I'm giving 80 Acre Hoppy Wheat a 4.5 out 5

Poured from the bottle into a hefe glass.
Pours a cloudy straw color with a creamy white head that leaves a fair amount of lacing down the glass.
Very nice aroma on this beer with citrus and spice, maybe a little grassiness and a hint of white bread.
A tasty brew with a hint of grapefruit, a little cracker, a slight piney hop bite and a refreshing crispness.
Mouthfeel is medium and a bit creamy with plenty of carbonation to keep things going all the way through the glass.
Overall, tasty and refreshing.

Best by 4/23/15. 12oz bottle poured into a pint glass. Pours a hazy/cloudy yellow; fluffy eggshell white head that sticks around leaving great retention and very sticky lacing. Looks great. The aromas are very nice. Lots of subtle dank hop notes. Grapefruit and pineapple. Maybe some Galaxy hops in the mix? Some grass is there. The wheat is there as well, but seems to be outshined by the hops in the nose. The flavors are bittersweet, but it's not overly bitter. The wheat gives this a quenching aspect. It's very refreshing, but doesn't feel light. Mouthfeel is medium-bodied with active carbonation, but not too prickly. It's very creamy and fluffy. It feels heavier than it really is. Alcohol goes unnoticed. Easy to drink.

This is a very solid brew. There's never been a ton of Pale Wheat Ales out there, so this is definitely a worthy example of the style.
