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!

Hazy yellow orange with a small white head. Wit yeast, bread, banana, some pine and very subdued apricot in the aroma. The flavor has a lot of wit characteristics upfront, with a piney, hoppy, somewhat bitter back end. The bitterness comes off a little harsh. Medium body with moderate carbonation. Decent, but not great.

Hazy yellow with a solid white head. Aroma is citrusy hops with a bit of resin. Run of the mill IPA, but very drinkable with a slightly malty finish.

Thanks to Sean for this. Hazy light yellow color. Fresh piney hops that turn a bit citrusly later. Sweet notes from the Apricot but not bursting with fruit flavors. Not totally my thing but it is good for what it is. Serving: Bottle

This is pretty good. Looks like a wheat beer, but has the definite hop flavor of an IPA. With a sharp dryness and a bit of fruitiness. A different type of IPA but good.

On tap at pub. Hazy yellowish with a thick, persistent creamy white head. Tastes like fruits, orange, coriander, has some acidity, and a touch of citrusy bitterness in the finish. Full bodied, average carbonation. Good white ale.

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, appears cloudy light yellow with nice frothy white head retention. Herbal, grassy, clove, musty, lemon pith. Body is creamy, and medium-light in texture. Finish has some clove, wheat and suprising amount of slightly pithy, dank bitterness. Pretty interesting offering, I really get elements of the “Wit” towards the finish. A bit confused (is it a cloudy spicy IPA or a souped up wheat beer?), but overall pretty successful.

Bottled. Poured hazy straw golden with a dense, sticky white head. The aroma picked up fresh wheat, floral, and apricot notes over a pale and wheaty base.. very fruity with an interesting twist.. not usually my thing, but I enjoyed it. The flavor found pale malts and sweet apricots at the core.. fruit and piney bitterness surrounded.. tart wheat was fairly complementary.. finished with a lot of fruit, plus a little peppery alcohol. Medium-bodied and well-carbonated on the palate.. started out really well, but became a bit cloying in the end.

Pours a hazy amber, with a nice white head. Aroma of apricots, pine, and citrus notes. Big pine flavor, complemented with apricot and yeast. Loads of hop bitterness and lots of flavor. I like this one quite a bit, and way better than expected! Finishes crisp and bitter.

Subtle citrus and pine hop aroma. Hazy soft amber yellow color. Heavy film like head that leaves a nice lacing. Bitterness is offset by sweet apricots that provides a nice balance. Nicely done and enjoyable IPA.
