Samuel Adams “White Water” IPA

      Summer starts next week, and I am still looking for great summer beers to enjoy. I suppose I have narrowed down what I am looking for to something light and refreshing, but still hoppy, and maybe a smidge fruity. Luckily I totally found just the brew a couple weeks ago when mixing a six at my local brew store. I didn’t know it was going to fit what I was looking for when I picked it up, but I definitely  want to make sure I have plenty on hand this summer!
      Samuel Adams has been pumping out a lot of new and interesting beers lately, but their “White Water” IPA has impressed me as far as something to be enjoyed in the Summer! It pours a cloudy golden yellow with floaties.  The head is a stiff two finger thick meringue like foam that lasts and lasts. The aroma is earthy and piny, with hints of spice and yeast. The apricots are tasted right upfront along with the spices before the wheat and peppery yeast balance out the initial fruity sweetness. The mouthfeel is medium to thin. The finish is dry with fruity hops and a grainy wheat aftertaste. The 5.8% abv makes for a very drinkable brew. I really liked this beer and will most likely be picking more up soon! Summer is coming, what tasty craft beer will you be enjoying? Here’s to Good Beers!
