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.

Nice looking wheat beer. The head was two fingers and lasted forever, leaving sticky lace. The beer is pretty much like their regular wheat beer in color and clarity, tan and fairly cloudy. I suspect there’s overlap in the recipes, but not just from the appearance. The aroma is quite hoppy, also bready, with a little fruit and wheat too. Taste is a bit odd, but delicious. It really tastes like boulevard wheat with a bunch of hops in it. It’s got yeasty notes, wheat, citrus, grassy hops, malt, lots of good stuff in there. Body is typically wheat beer, light and easy to drink, but almost chewy with body. A lightly sweet, hoppy aftertaste denotes the finish. It’s definitely a very different beer, and I like it. Wonderful for summer laziness. I’ll definitely be drinking this one again. Great value too.

Pours hazy yellow with big white head. Aroma is primarily citrus hops. Flavor is similarly hoppy with grapefruit most prominent. Think muted IPA flavor without the bitterness.

Hazy golden orange with a good sized off-white head. Aroma is floral with citrus, wheat and perfume. Taste is of citrus, wheat, light grass.

bottle. hazed yellow body with a white head. nose of grapefruit, pine resin, dishsoap foam and citronella candle (both the waxy petroleum base and the burning wick)... it’s like the DEET insect repellent my dad would make me use as a child, the stuff that will melt plastic if you don’t clean it off your hands. medium-light body, waxy texture, dull and lifeless carbonation with muted wheat and malt flavor soaked in grapefruit and lemon pith-like citrus. medium bitterness; medium-low acid; mostly dry. lingering waxy finish with an abrupt flattening of the body late. resinous, oily / waxy texture, difficult to enjoy, and difficult to get past the citronella candle resemblance.

travita (4168) - Frisco, Texas, USA - AUG 31, 2012
Bottle. The look is clear, foamy white head, and golden in color. The smell hops, wheat, lemon, grass, and cleaning solution. The taste is fruity hops, wheat, lemon, low but pleasant bitterness and nice.

This is a very tasty wheat ipa. It has the taste you’d expect from an ipa and the smoothness you’d expect from a wheat beer.

Poured into a Boulevard Tulip. Not much lacing. Citrusy quality I look for in an IPA finishes with that Boulevard signature wheat taste. Great session beer!

Botttle. Pours a cloudy yellow with a small frothy white head diminishing quickly. The aroma is a floral hops and wheat grass. Thin mouthfeel with a light citrus and a nice sweet finish. A decent wheat ale from Boulevard.
