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!

Bottle while camping from a sampler box. From the bottle so no idea how it pours. Aroma, from the bottle, is minimal at best with very little other than lager aroma coming through with some wet hay. Taste is more wet hay, malt, distant hop bitterness. This really tastes like it was brewed with a lager yeast and just a slight hoppy version of a pale lager. Dislike to say the least. Scroll past.

AndyReynolds (818) - Wilder, Kentucky, USA - APR 12, 2012
Bottle. Aroma is hoppy with notes of apricot, pine, grass, and some more citrus. Palate is crisp and smooth. Taste is bitter with a dry finish. For a Sam Adams sampler beer, this was pretty good.

An IPA on the lighter side without sacrificing full-flavored hoppiness; would make a great summer quaffer.

junon (388) - Honolulu, Hawaii, USA - APR 12, 2012
As with most IPAs this smells "green". Herbal. Pours with a lingering head. Slight sediment. Pail orange with a copper core. Taste wise it is not PUNCH YOU IN THE FACE hoppy. Easy drinker. Mouth feel is soft almost flat. Not really to my liking this one.

drank on 2/3/12 in a Sam glass. Pours yellow/orange and a bit cloudy, good head. Nose is hoppy, taste is too with just a hint of sweet.

annunz123 (809) - Taunton, Massachusetts, USA - APR 9, 2012
Got this as part of a variety pack. Pine, flower, and fruit in the aroma. Flavor starts sweet and finishes with hop bitterness and apricot. I thought this was decent even though I don’t like apricots; this probably scores higher if you do.

Bottle from roger wilco. Hazy orange pour, some hops/spices on the aroma. Taste of spices, hops, some apricots. Good.

BeerHawk (1810) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - APR 8, 2012
Bottle (best by Jun 12). Poured a hazy pale with a thin white head. Aromas of fresh citrus and floral. The flavor found floral, light pine, and a slight hint of pepper. Medium body.

swoopjones (5329) - Buffalo, New York, USA - APR 8, 2012
bottle. A very, albeit surprisingly good IPA. Big citrusy hops, big bitterness, very balanced. Great job on this one SA

Whitewater IPA is a true-blue IPA as I know them. It’s light, very crisp, absolutely drenched in hops from top to bottom. It has that kind of citrus thing going on that I associate with IPAs. Kind of a grapefruit flavor. The bitterness is throughout the taste.
