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!

12oz Bottle drank on 14th March 2014 in a garden, Newport Beach. Hazy yellow/orange mixture to the colour, with a full white crown on top. Citrus notes rule the nose and taste, hoppy and fairly bitter, those added apricots try to take the edge away and just about succeed. Not as harsh as the local (Californian) IPA’s I came across while in the states.

Pours a cloudy gold color with white head. Pine and citrus on the nose with a hint of wheat and light fruit; follows onto the palate. Fairly straight forward for what it is. Finishes with a slightly sweet note.

Hazy gold with white head and lace. Aroma of hopes and pine. Nice bitterness, medium body with a little citrus in the finish. Good one.

rumproasts (3232) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - APR 5, 2014
bottle. Golden with small head. Fairly mild as an IPA goes. Hops are crisp with a light bitterness. Would be a good beer to introduce someone to the style, but it’s not going to blow away any hopheads.

12oz bottle. The lable is a little misleading. I got almost no apricot flavor and only a hint of spices before a heavy hop bomb. Not one I would probably have again.

Samuel Adams Whitewater IPA brews a delightful specimen from their Hopology series. Fresh floral aromas rise from a hazy orange pour with a decent orangish head. The aroma is pleasant but not real prominent. Taste is a nice mix of fruit and floral notes with tinge of pine that doesn’t hang around too long. The finish is dry and reminiscent of spring water. Whitewater IPA exceeds expectations and is worthy competitor.
