3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A Wheat IPA flavored with Apricots and Spices. Yuck - My expectations were that this would be a cloying mess. I may have over-rated this beer because my expectations were so low. Actually it has a nice hoppy aroma when opened, and luckily the hops outshine everything else - the apricots are well in the background where they should be - actually, they should not be anywhere in sight, but experimentation is good, right? Just like cloves in cigarettes, I guess. The apricots and spices are unnecessary, but not overpowering, so I will reluctantly tolerate their presence. A "nice to try once" beer - maybe I can pawn the rest off on my unsuspecting friends when they come to visit. The trouble is, the hopheads will object to the apricots and spices, and the folks that like all of those fruity beers will object to the hops. Truly a beer no one will want to be friends with.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass. The appearance is a slightly murky gold colored beer with a small white head. The aroma is fairly hoppy smelling with some citrus. The taste is heavy on citrus (a good thing) and has a small hop bite.

12oz bottle - Pours a golden yellow/orange...with a white head. Fruity nose. Some sour dough and grapefruit in the first sip...with a grassy bitter hops finish. Better than some.

UPDATED: MAR 30, 2016 Not the worst thing I’ve drank but not a fan of most IPAs, so take this rating for what its worth. A little low ABV for an IPA. As a wheat beer, I was hoping to have some of that flavor, but the hops just overpower it.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
May 2nd, 2014 - Part of a Samuel Adams box from Costco, the Whitewater IPA is better than most common across-the-US availability style IPAs, bright and with an orange glow, and a fairly standard head. A flowery hops defines the aroma (appropriate for Springtime), and the flavor expresses on the sweeter side, though clearly with a hop side, too. The aftertaste is long and lingering, inviting the sipper to savor, and for what it’s worth, I’m pleased that this gentle IPA occupies so much real estate in my Samuel Adams beer box.

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!
