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!

According to the label, this should be a fruit beer; apricots and such. Smell is dull ipa. Foamy head hazy hefe lookin thing. Fruit and spices have very little effect on this ipa-ish brew and now I know why its in that style, wew. Bitter strong medicine and now I see little sediment chunks floating around in there. Much stronger than the deScription would lead you to think. Not sure if any white ale can be tasted with that overwhelming ipa character, borders on double ipa. Same with the finish, its like a bulldozer.Feels like more than 6%. Not for a lager lover fer sure. Yes, long bitter astringent nasty nellie soapy finish. whew

Samuel Adams Whitewater IPA is a very cloudy sparkling golden ale. The dense, white foam has great retention and lacing. It has a bright citrus aroma with orange and pine. Itís medium bodied and a little starchy throughout. The finish is dry. Itís not as hoppy as the aroma led me to believe, but suitably bitter. There are flavors of orange, pine and wheat with a hint of apricot and pine resin at the finish. Itís really solid and the flavors pull together really well.

12oz bottle - pours cloudy orange with off-white head and good lacing. Nose is citrus and grass. Flavor is fruity (more grapefruit than apricot). Fairly sweet for an IPA, but still bitter-heavy. Aftertaste is lemon. Refreshing and tasty. Sticky mouthfeel.

pours slightly hazy yellow with a huge whiter head. the aroma is very fruity, hops, aprocots, and slight bitterness. the taste is very fruity up front with a bitter sweet initial taste and ends on a sweeter note. the taste is also of dark fruits, I slightly prefer the Mighty Oak Ale over this beer but this one is still solid.

12oz bottle in a shaker. Pours hazy golden with a fluffy, off-white head. Aroma of citrusy hops, apricot, spices, and caramel malts. Flavor about the same with a nice blend of apricot and hops, but something doesnít go well. Average texture. A decent IPA
