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!

fantastic stuff!! .. pure fruit, melon, and light sweet hops .. i loved it!! . . . To me, it’s a good idea to always carry two sacks of something when you walk around. That way, if anybody says, Hey, can you give me a hand? You can say, Sorry, got these sacks..

Drafts at Casual Pint. Cloudy yellow amber with a lasting quarter inch of head. Nose is resin, grapefruit, light caramel and fruit. Flavor is the same. Near-medium body is smoothly carbonated and dry. Nice session ale.

12 oz. bottle- Pours hazy orange with a fluffy one finger white head. The aroma is apricots, sweet hops, mildly spicy. The taste is less apricots than the aroma, there is a more hoppy citrusy flavor with a wallop of bitterness after the swallow. Body is medium, carbonation is moderately high, finish as I already said is bitter and sticks around. The taste and aroma could not be more different, In the aroma I detect very little hops and a lot of fruity apricots, and the taste Is all about the hops, bitter upfront in your face hops, interesting take on the IPA. I do wish they could have kept the bitter finish but also got those apricots and spices to show up more in the flavor. As it warms the fruit does show up and the bitterness mellows out, nice IPA, I think I like this better than their standard Latitude 48 IPA.

Hazy golden color with a thick, foamy white head. The aroma has an overpowering citrus presence. The flavor is piney with a hint of apricots and a very dry finish. Would have been better without the aprocotts and spices.

Picked up a 12oz bottle in the new mix pack from Sam Adams, pours a hazy light golden with a thin white soapy head and spotty lacing, aroma is heavy on the pine with some citrus and a little bit of must, the flavor has a good amount of wet hops mixed in with some spices, orange and coriander, almost tastes like a hopped up Blue Moon.
