Pours a hazy straw color with a bright white two finger soapy head. Good retention on the head. Lots of frothy lacing.
The aroma is big on fresh citrus notes with a faint earthy scent hiding underneath.
The taste starts with tropical citrus and lemon notes and works into wheat and malts with hints of earthy herbal notes. The finish is a nice blend of wheat and citrus grapefruit and lemon. Some what sweet, but very refreshing. Very little if any bitterness.
Light body with medium carbonation. A smooth, but zesty mouth feel. Very drinkable.
Overall, a very nice offering from Boulevard. Very drinkable and refreshing with well balanced flavors that keep me coming back for more. A very nice mix between a wheat beer and an IPA. I will buy this one again! Try one!

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.
