Pours a light, hazy yellow. Has a really nice hop smell out of the bottle. Definitely has a strong piny taste and lingering bitter aftertaste. Not my favorite IPA but Iíd drink it again.

Pours a hazy amber with a thick white head. Smells of floral notes, pine. Tastes of hops, with an added sweetness, i guess from the apricots.

Bottle. Not sure where I got it from. Poured gold and was spicier than I was expecting for the style. Reading the commercial description, that sounds about right. Nothing wild, just another solid Sam Adams beer.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
A cloudy light honey-colored brew. Fruit-spice aromas. Flavor is bready with lots of fruit notes. Tangy. Some spice from the hops. Not too sweet. Well balance. More of a fruit beer IMO. Overall, decent.

Sam Adams continuies to create great beers. The Whitewater IPA is no exception. Hazy straw-colored body with a white, clinging head. Wonderfully inviting aroma of citrus and pine. Medium, lively mouthfeel. The flavor is almost as good as the aroma. Mild, sweet citrus up front gives way to a nice bitter pine and grapefruit finish. A very well done IPA.

Amazingly good IPA. Pours hazy straw with a great lace. Aroma is godly hops. Flavor is super fresh bitter hops, and a sweet fruity body, very great beer.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a hazy yellow, looks alot like a hefe. Aromas of some citrus and yeast but itís a bit weak. Tastes rather strange. The hop bitterness is there and citrus lingers, but itís slightly metallic and there seems to be absolutely no malts to balance the flavors. The apricot comes out a bit more as it warms but thats it in the range of complexity. Not an offensive beer, and not really all that bad, just an odd concoction that SA has made. All in all itís just another beer from a brewer that specializes in making ok beers, but not great beers.
