From notes 6/5/12: Pours a hazy, unfiltered dark peach juice like golden orange color with nice carbonation producing 2+ fingers of white, frothy head with good retention and nice chunks of stick lacing. Aroma is bready and fain caramel malt, pine, citrus and stone fruit (obviously apricot). Taste is wheat and apricot forward with a hint of cantaloupe gravitating toward a pine and citrus middle with a bittersweet finish that develops into a slightly more bitter aftertaste. Taste like a heavy bodied summertime brew to be taken in small doses, too syrupy, too sweet.

Very nasty beer. Pours a hazy golden color with a small head and a lot of sediment floating in it. Super hoppy taste and smell overly carbonated and a harsh swallow. Would not recommend to ANYONE.

Samuel Adams Whitewater IPA brewed by Boston Beer Company (Samuel Adams) This IPA had an ABV of 5.80% The pour on Whitewater IPA is a nice golden amber color with a nice thick white head. There is also a fair amount of lacing to this IPA. The smell of Whitewater IPA is hops, grains and malts. Thought there would be more hops to the smell of this brew. There is also a slight bitterness to the smell of this brew. Now for the taste, it is smooth with flavors. You do pick up on some hop bitterness, and some smoothness of grains and malts. There is a lot going on in Samuel Adams Whitewater IPA. This IPA is more milder than most IPA's on the market, not saying that is a bad thing. I like how smooth this brew goes down. There is nothing overpowering about this brew, it has a real nice balance to it. The month feel of Samuel Adams Whitewater IPA is smooth, rich, clean and refreshing. Overall I'm giving this brew a 4.25 out of 5. This is a nice ligher IPA on the market, not saying that is a bad thing. I really like how smooth this brew is and how nice it is to drink. I would buy this brew again. Boston Beer Company (Samuel Adams) did a real nice job with this brew. If you are looking for a lighter less Hoppy IPA look this brew up.

Poured at 45°F from a 12oz bottle (best before September 2016) into a Spiegelau IPA glass. Consumed on 19Aug16.
SMELL: Strong apricot, mango, papaya, guava, and peach aromas entangle with mild aromas of wheat, and lemon zest along with subtle aromas of coriander, orange peel, and hints of cloves.
4.5 out of 5
TASTE: Mild flavors of wheat and coriander join together to introduce the taste profile. Mild flavors of apricot and lemon zest along with subtle mango, papaya, peach, and guava flavors immediately follow as the coriander flavors grow slightly stronger. The profile closes with subtle orange peel, bitter hop, and clove flavors as all prior ones persist.
3.75 out of 5
NOTE: This was a good example of the style. The smell was unfortunately much more potent than the taste. I had thought this was going to be a tropical fruit explosion, but ended up experiencing a mildly refreshing and sessionable beer. I recommend to anyone curious about the style. After trying this, one could seek better beers of the style.
