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.

12oz bottle from a sixer I picked up for $6.99, nice price. Bright yellow-orange color, sort of hazy appearance. Sticky lace, short head. Hoppy, citrusy smell, faintest hint of wheat and crackers. Flavor is slightly citrusy, hoppy, more faint wheat. I'd say this is more hop dominated but its not a hop bomb like say Lil' Sumpin Sumpin. Its quite easy to drink so

Poured into a Sam Adams perfect Pint Glass

Appearance: high carbonation, bright yellow-gold in color, one inch head, hazy

Smell: wheat and citrus hops

Taste: wheaty, grass, and citrusy hops that are especially present at the end

Mouthfeel: crisp, light bodied, high carbonation, sweetish start with bitterness coming in the middle and a bit more prominent towards the end.

Overall: Super clean. For the style, this is one of my favorites. A perfect summer beer that I could have several of. Nice pilsner like taste with a touch of pleasant bitterness that is never too bitter. One of Boulevards better small beers that I have had the pleasure of trying.

A: Cloudy, light pastel yellow. Forms between a 1/4" and 1/2" of white head. Excellent retention. Moderate lacing.

S: Very hop forward. Orange, orange rind, and a bit of lemon. Lots of citrus and rather juicy.

T: Taste is similar with a slight wheat twist. Rather hop forward with lots of citrus juiciness. Predominantly sweet orange with a little bit of lemonade in the mix.

M: Lighter bodied. Medium carbonation. Very light bitterness.

O: This is exactly the type of beer I should love: a light malt base with an exceedingly hop forward character. But I don't love this beer in the least. There is something about the juicy, citrus hops sit on that light wheat base that just doesn't sit right with me.

Pours a hazy pale golden color with around one finger of head that quickly settled to a thin cap. A lot of sticky lacing is left down the glass.

Hoppy aroma of pineapple and grapefruit. Grainy with rustic wheat notes.

They got a lot of hop flavor into this beer with a rather modest IBU level. Pineapple and lemon upfront to compliment the neutral malt bill. Wheat is not as pronounced as expected.

Light body and superbly carbonated. Smooth texture with enough lift to liven the palate.

The beer is quite refreshing and easy to drink. Nice hop flavor without all the bitterness of an IPA. Another good Boulevard beer.
