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!

BBD 8/14. Light amber (golden) pour with a haze. Massive head with well retained lacing. The nose is apricot with other tropical notes over a light pine. Almost medium bodied and smooth textured with an above average carbonation level that imparts a nice effervescence on the finish. The flavor profile is complex and well balanced. It begins with a blend of hops noted in the nose with the citrus ones the primary focus. In the middle, pine comes to the forefront over a light biscuit sweetness. The finish is almost crisp and ends with a pleasant bitterness of pine and grapefruit rind with a touch of pepper. A very good, but not quite outstanding, IPA.

[Bottle] Straw colored pour with a distinct haze to it. About an inch of foamy white head. Nose is of citrus and tropical fruits. Taste includes floral and resinous hops, wheat malt and light fruits. Lively carbonation makes this beer look more like a weizen. Sweet finish. Tasting notes from early 2012.

Transfer from BA rated on 1-18-12 - Poured from bottle in to pint glass Appearance - An apricot-golden color with a nice white head that forms big and leaves to give decent lacing. Smell - Apricots really strike me at first. A bit of lemon and orange are mixed with the apricot and finally grassy/floral hops work their way into the end of the smell experience. Its quite pleasant and unique. Taste - Sweet apricot and citrus first come to the tongue. This is followed by a bit of maltiness which quickly is taken over by some of the floral hops and piney taste. The citrus then comes back at the end to finish the taste profile. Mouthfeel - A little creamy tasting at first, which then fades to a more normal viscosity. The carbonation is just about where it likely should be. Overall - An interesting beer. The fruity aroma and taste mixed with the very floral and piney hop make it worth a try.

HKdIPA (515) - HONG KONG - MAY 17, 2014
Bottle from QClub at the pool. Bright hazy orange pour with dense thin head. Piney aroma with a bit of fruitiness. Taste is very sharp, bitter hops - pine and dried fruit with very very dry bitter citrus peel finish. Bubbly. Not bad at all.

FROTHINGSLOSH (5768) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 11, 2014
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a cloudy orange color with lots of chunks and a large foamy orange-white head that lingered and left decent lacing. The aroma was sweet, tart and tangy orange, pine and bread. The flavor was bitter and fruity with notes of pine, tropical fruits, orange and bread. Medium length finish. Moderately full bodied. Solid.

I get the citrus,apricot and spiciness right away but equal are the bready floral and caramel qualities,pleasant but not a strong aroma it takes a couple sniffs to discern the elements..looks good a cloudy amber gold with lasting slightly off white head good lacing..taste..hops upfront but not as dominant or lasting as I might have thought I taste the wheat now in a bready yeasty way sweet fruitiness tartness and spice..dry bitterness lingers on the palate and well carbonated..overall isn’t bad but drink it while its ice cold
