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!

Cloudy light yellow color with medium head. IPA hop aroma and taste, more to the herbal than fruit side. Just couldn’t catch the apricots.

Pours a hazy pale orange color with clean white head reminiscent of a good hefe. Nose is citrusy; crisp and clean. WOW. Tastes fantastic. Good, sweet, bitter, hoppy. Good citrus flavor with just a drop of sweetness. Bravo, Sam Adams.

UPDATED: JAN 8, 2012 Tallahassee, Fl - Publix Supermarket - Park & Blarstone - 12 oz bottle. Dark golden/light orange hazy pour with a sticky white head that leaves a nice coat of lacing. Finally a cat-urine smelling IPA from Sam Adams - about time!. Aroma full of resiny ho goodness - with fresh pine tips and some cat urine sprinkled in there for some good measure. Chewy flavor with some apricot oriented fruitiness, a dose of bitter grapefruit, a bit of yeastiness, lemon peel and a hint of saffron-like spiciness. Mouthfeel is tart and spritzy. Excellent. Part of their Brewer’s Choice Variety 12-Pack.

Aroma is a mix of hops and citrus/apricots/tropical fruit. The flavor is hoppy and very dry with the apricots balancing it nicely. Not as heavy on the fruit as expected, this is a mix of two styles, relatively equally both and a pretty good ale all around.

Cloudy in appearance. Copper in color with a thick, frothy, white head. Very good lacing. Hoppy aroma. Having a hard time getting anything else out of the aroma. Very powerful piny, Hoppy taste. Medium-bodied beer with a bitter finish. Thin texture. This variety pack I got these last 3 Sam Adams in was well worth the money thus far.

dwaggs2 (1297) - Jefferson City, Missouri, USA - JAN 7, 2012
Bottle. Poured a hazy yellow color with a tiny white head that left lacing on the glass. Aroma was citrus, pine and grass. Flavor was mild hop bitters and grass. Apricots were a non factor for me. So sweet in the finish. Drank like an ipa.

Suttree (5370) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 7, 2012
Fruit beer? Apricots? What? I didn’t get any of that. None. Just a lot of pine and a weird wheat note. It’s OK, I guess - I didn’t hate it - but it never really come together into one cohesive flavor.

joeneugs (3805) - Livermore, California, USA - JAN 6, 2012
It pours a light orange color with a white head. The aroma is classic west coast hoppy goodness with loads of citrus, apricot, peaches, oranges and some tropical fruit. The flavor is the same with a hefty dose of bitterness in the finish. Generally light on the palate and very tasty. Well done!

Aurelius (4561) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JAN 6, 2012
Light, orange-amber beer with a fluffy white head. Big, fruity aroma with a good west coast hop presence. Good. Tangy, peppery, not terribly sweet. Long-lasting hop finish. Medium to medium-heavy mouthfeel. Publix, Park and Blair Stone.

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..
