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!

Pours to a cloudy orange leaving medium suds with decent head. Aroma is of citrus and a hit of something floral. Truly does taste like grapefruit but has a good bite but nothing to overwhelming. leaves aftertaste that lingers

Draft at Outback. Nose is citrus, light pine, and caramel. Clear yellow orange with a medium off white head. Flavor is lightly bitter with a light malty background. Decent beer for a place with almost all macros.

On tap, poured a hazy golden hue w/ a medium white head diminishing to a thin cap. Moderate spicy citrus aroma. Initial flavor is light sweet w/ a bold bitter finish. Tastes are white grapefruit, apricot, lemon, coriander, pine and grass. Medium bodied and balanced mouthfeel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap at old chicago. Medium to large head. Smooth taste. Probably the best that I’ve had from Sam Adams

Best of the SA six pack of IPAs. Slightly more IPA than witbier I think, but a combination of both. Citrus hops, juicy fruits. I’m not sure how much the yeast brings to the table, as the orange peel and apricot take over that territory. Of course, not much in the way of malt. Long afterglow that reminds me vaguely of Gruyere.

Appearance has a golden orange hue supporting a healthy head that sticks around a bit leaving nice lace. Smell of the apricots and spice with malt and hop. Taste is fruity, hoppy with a nice grapefruit citric having a good malt backbone. Mouthfeel is medium light with good carbonation.

This had the aroma of an unfinished, still fermenting wine. Spices and fruits do not belong in beer. Not for me.

BBD 8/14. Light amber (golden) pour with a haze. Massive head with well retained lacing. The nose is apricot with other tropical notes over a light pine. Almost medium bodied and smooth textured with an above average carbonation level that imparts a nice effervescence on the finish. The flavor profile is complex and well balanced. It begins with a blend of hops noted in the nose with the citrus ones the primary focus. In the middle, pine comes to the forefront over a light biscuit sweetness. The finish is almost crisp and ends with a pleasant bitterness of pine and grapefruit rind with a touch of pepper. A very good, but not quite outstanding, IPA.
