look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Light golden. Very yeasty with great lacing.

Smell: Lemon and grass. Very faint. Not my favorite, but it is ok.

Taste/Mouthfeel: Sour lemon with a creamy mouthfeel. Decent flavors, but a bit thin. Doesn't really scream "IPA" to me. A bit too bitter in the finish and thin as well.

Overall: Not my favorite, but it's an ok IPA.

I saw Hillary Clinton walking out of the party store with a six pack of Whitewater IPA. Must remind her of the good ol’ days.

Appearance: hazy dirty orange body with a two finger white head that leaves some lacing on the glass.

Aroma: bold coriander, citrus, touch of pine, sweet wheat, yeast,

Flavors: the nose is nice and the flavor is even better; bread and wheat on the front, then the citrus meat and pine hit the mid along with mild fruit and mild coriander; grassy along with sweet/tart pine on the back; orange peel and a prickly pine linger on the aftertaste

Mouthfeel: mild fizzy feel, wool like texture,

To the Point: If Noble Pils is too mild for you then try Whitewater; if I want to drink a few beers sitting around the campfire I’m doing Noble Pils and if I want to drink one or two flavorful beers I’m going with Whitewater. And, if Bill and Hillary ever invite me over for a little chat – I’m bringing Whitewater.
