Samuel Adams Whitewater IPA Brewed by the Boston Beer Company

Samuel Adams Whitewater IPA Brewed by the Boston Beer Company in Boston, MA                      

Whitewater IPA is a flavor packed brew that draws inspiration from two distinct styles, the white ales of Belgium & American IPAs. But while a fusion of the two, it’s far more than the sum of both, exhibiting a harmony of crisp wheat, bright pine and citrus flavors, & just a hint of orange peel. Hops: Topaz, Chinook, Cascade, Simcoe, and Citra. Malts: Samuel Adams two-row pale malt blend and white wheat. ABV: 5.8% ABV. IBUs: 61.

Beer Review by Beer Advocate
Appearance - A very active swirling pour yields two fingers worth of stiff rigid off-white froth comprised of lots of big chunky bubbles with a slightly whimsical rocky top... Stellar retention... A very deep haziness... The color is an uber pale straw color... Loaded with swirling micro-sized moderate to rapid paced carbonation... Some sediment can be seen floating about as well...

Aroma - The nose is subtle yet elegant... Loads or orange zest... A mild wheat component... A very light mix of earthy and floral hops... A touch of lemon... Very nice, but a bit too understated... A bit more umph would make a big difference...

Taste - The nose was a terrific indicator of what to expect on the palate... A big slightly spicy wheat component to start... Loaded with orange zest as well... Some light lemony notes as well... The hops rise on the finish and take on a slightly earthy and floral mix...

Mouthfeel - On the lighter side of medium bodied... Sleek and smooth... Clean and crisp... Starts lust... Mostly sturdy throughout... Finishes with a sharp dryness... Also a bit gritty and chalky on the finish as well... Brisk sharp carbonation...

Overall - A rock solid "American IPA..." That's in quotes, because I'm not 100% on board with the style classification... Regardless this a very easy drinkable, ridiculous quaffable offering from the Boston Beer Company... I would gladly knock a couple of these back on any nice spring or summer day... Heck, I may even grab a six pack on occasion when the mood strikes... A pretty tasty and enjoyable brew here

Boston Beer Company Story

The Boston Beer Company began in 1984 with a generations-old family recipe that Founder and Brewer Jim Koch uncovered in his father's attic. After bringing the recipe to life in his kitchen, Jim brought it to bars in Boston with the belief that drinkers would appreciate a complex, full-flavored beer, brewed fresh in America. That beer was Samuel Adams Boston Lager(R), and it helped catalyze what became known as the American craft beer revolution.

Today, the Company brews more than 30 styles of beer. The Company uses the traditional four vessel brewing process and often takes extra steps like dry-hopping and a secondary fermentation known as krausening. It passionately pursues the development of new styles and the perfection of its classic beers by constantly searching for the world's finest ingredients. While resurrecting traditional brewing methods, the Company has earned a reputation as a pioneer in another revolution, the "extreme beer" movement, where it seeks to challenge drinkers' perceptions of what beer can be. The Boston Beer Company strives to elevate the image of American craft beer by entering festivals and competitions the world over, and in the past five years it has won more awards in international beer competitions than any other brewery in the world. The Company remains independent, and brewing quality beer remains its single focus. While Samuel Adams is the country's largest-selling craft beer, it accounts for only about one-half of one percent of the U.S. beer market. For more information, please visit
