12 oz bottle.
Medium body with moderate hops bite.
Hazy yellow orange with a small white head. Wit yeast, bread, banana, some pine and very subdued apricot in the aroma. carbonation.
I am not loving this beer.
It is not bad, but I have had quite a few better IPA’s than this in the past 12 months.

bottle. Golden with small head. Fairly mild as an IPA goes. Hops are crisp with a light bitterness. Would be a good beer to introduce someone to the style, but it’s not going to blow away any hopheads.

2.8 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
12oz bottle. The lable is a little misleading. I got almost no apricot flavor and only a hint of spices before a heavy hop bomb. Not one I would probably have again.

Samuel Adams Whitewater IPA brews a delightful specimen from their Hopology series. Fresh floral aromas rise from a hazy orange pour with a decent orangish head. The aroma is pleasant but not real prominent. Taste is a nice mix of fruit and floral notes with tinge of pine that doesn’t hang around too long. The finish is dry and reminiscent of spring water. Whitewater IPA exceeds expectations and is worthy competitor.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Drank from bottle. Very piny hops throughout -- prominent in nose, taste, and aftertaste. Slight suggestion of apriocots in the nose. Pine dominates all else. Tastes like an effort to make a super hoppy, supper piny IPA like was popular a few years back when brewers were trying to get as many hops as possible into a bottle, a trend I never cared for to start with.
