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 (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.

Whitewater IPA is a true-blue IPA as I know them. Itís 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.

I predict White IPAís will be all the craze starting this year, and continuing into 2013. So far, with the few I have had, I am very pleased.

whiskeyrocks (58) - Lindenhurst, Illinois, USA - APR 7, 2012
Good 1 inch head that does not fade. Hazy yellow color. Smells and tastes of grapefruit. Cant really taste the pine or apricot listed on the label. Not to hoppy. Soft after taste. Would drink more often.

Mora2000 (5568) - McKinney, Texas, USA - APR 6, 2012
The beer pours a hazy yellow color with a white head. The aroma has a ton of pine and grapefruit notes. Overall, the beer smells very fruity. The flavor is mainly made up of pineapple and other tropical fruit, with some wheat and a little bit of biscuit malt. I also get a light to medium bitterness. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Fairly balanced IPA. Very refreshing and it has a wonderful bite to it. Go Sam Adams.

3fourths (7887) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - APR 4, 2012
bottle. soft nose of muddled yeast, wheat and hops, thatís about what itís supposed to be, right? this is, itís rather dull, quiet and neutral. creamy texture with a round and full body; again mild and neutral wheat, hops and yeast, a stew, basically, without any distinct flavors standing out or showing any dominance. the apricots are there, I guess. who knows. does it matter? no, just like everything else.

BK7 (725) - Turner, Oregon, USA - APR 4, 2012
Bottle. Lemon citrus with some malty caramel. Finish is more lemon, a sticky sweetness (apricots?) and mild bitterness.
