COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Sam Adams Whitewater IPA. A wheat ale brewed with apricots & spices.
This hazy brew combines the crisp character of a white ale with the intense pine and citrus flavors of an India Pale Ale. We took the unique combination to a new level with the sublet addition of apricots, which provide a slight sweetness to balance the bitterness of the hops. Cheers!

May 2nd, 2014 - Part of a Samuel Adams box from Costco, the Whitewater IPA is better than most common across-the-US availability style IPAs, bright and with an orange glow, and a fairly standard head. A flowery hops defines the aroma (appropriate for Springtime), and the flavor expresses on the sweeter side, though clearly with a hop side, too. The aftertaste is long and lingering, inviting the sipper to savor, and for what it’s worth, I’m pleased that this gentle IPA occupies so much real estate in my Samuel Adams beer box.

12oz Flasche. Trübes orangefarbenes Bier mit festem Schaum. Kräuter, gewürze und Hefeduft mit fruchtiger Nuance. Toller Geschmack. Erst die Gewürze, dann die Hefe und im Abgang die leicht bittere Aprikose. Ungewöhnlich!

Bork (452) - Rosewood, Georgia, USA - FEB 24, 2015
Thick beverage with an interesting tart bitterness. Too heavy on the apricots and too much perfume to be worth returning to.

Obfuscate (438) - Minneapolis, - DEC 21, 2014
Interesting combination of the wheat beer and the IPA hops. It’s good and very easy to drink. Works well in their mix IPA hopology six pack but I wouldn’t seek it out individually.
