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!

Poured into a pint glass,pours a golden haze with a nice 2 finger head with thick lacing,I get a lot of citrus on the nose with hints of bread from the malts and some fruits,taste is nice and sweet up front rounding off with a decent hop bite and a bitter finish medium carbonation and mouthfeel, all in all this is a delicious change of pace its not the most flavorful ipa but its a solid brew and very enjoyable...cheers

12oz Flasche. Trübes orangefarbenes Bier mit festem Schaum. Kräuter, gewürze und Hefeduft mit fruchtiger Nuance. Toller Geschmack. Erst die Gewürze, dann die Hefe und im Abgang die leicht bittere Aprikose. Ungewöhnlich!

Bork (452) - Rosewood, Georgia, USA - FEB 24, 2015
Thick beverage with an interesting tart bitterness. Too heavy on the apricots and too much perfume to be worth returning to.

Obfuscate (336) - Minneapolis, - DEC 21, 2014
Interesting combination of the wheat beer and the IPA hops. It’s good and very easy to drink. Works well in their mix IPA hopology six pack but I wouldn’t seek it out individually.

Pours hazy rich gold with a very foamy, leggy head. Aroma is floral, orange and pine with a touch of spice. Very nice. Taste starts short but gains some depth with warming. Leads with bitter notes flavors of piney hope, grapefruit citrus, pepper. Apricot and spices linger. Pretty damn good.
