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!

Aroma fresh citrus sided hop aroma ,light and easy going.
Appearance hazed amber with large white top. Neat crown.
Flavor and Palate : medium bodied. Pine-spruce front followed by citrus , lime hinted with green garden freshness. Mid accented by sweet grapefruit. Softness of wheat with fruity side hinted by peach. Great blend of flavours. Sam Adams did not forget how to make true yet unique American IPA.

Great hazy, golden color. Piney and hoppy and citrus. Big aroma, big taste. Would go down fast on a hot summer day.

Purchased at Binny’s in Chicago, IL; enjoyed on that first unusually warm 70 degree night in mid March which won’t last for much longer. Appearance is a very cloudy bright gold with a rich white head that laces to the glass. Aroma is equal part hops and apricot, gives it a slightly sweet / fruity nose. Taste is decent, I’m not getting huge hop notes or anything, maybe the apricot subsided that a bit, but I appreciate the flavor as it’s probably not meant to be a hop bomb. This is a pretty easy drinking IPA, enjoyable for this pleasant night.

12 oz bottle from Spring Variety Pack. Nice hazy, golden apperance with what appear to be chunks of fruit floating around. Moderate head. Aroma is very sweet and fruity as expected with heavy citrus, but the heavy hop content balances it out with some floral/grass character. Taste is fairly bitter with a bit of sweetness. Full body, long bitter aftertaste, but not too dry. Very unique and enjoyable IPA.

Total Wine & More, Chantilly 120oz ($2): Pours a hazy orange color with a white head. Aroma is grapefruit, sugar, and some pine needles. Taste is much the same. The big surprise with this beer was that hops were much more intense than I would have expected. It wasn’t a watered down IPA at all, but rather a pretty bitter little guy. Good balance overall, and has a few qualities that distinguish it from other IPAs.

12 oz bottle. Pours hazy yellow/gold with a 2 finger white head. Good retention and lace. Lots of citrus and wheat on the nose. Fresh, clean and spring like. Taste is lemony with bread notes. Other citrus flavors as well. Kind of blurs the line between an IPA & a white ale. Light and bubbly in the mouth. Very easy drinking.

A nice cloudy yellow body with a white head that had decent retention and nice lace. Aroma had a nice floral hop note, some mild citrus and a lingering spice note. Some toasted malt notes. Flavor was mildly sweet from the malts. There was a pleasant fruit note. A nice balance of bitter and floral hops. A nice crisp finish.
