Samuel Adams "Whitewater IPA"
Boston Beer Company - Boston, Massachusetts USA
IPA (ABV 5.8%)

[Best served in a Shaker glass]

Rating: 3.5/5.0

Appearance: 4/5
Taste: 8/10
Palate: 3/5
Overall: 13/20

The pour was a cloudy golden yellow with a large (2-3 finger) white frothy head that lasted throughout and produced excellent sheeting of sticky lacing.

The aroma was nice and hoppy of citrus hops, grain malts and a soapy yeast with notes of grapefruit, caramel and a bit of spice.

The taste was lightly bitter with a decent note of caramel early on and then became good and hoppy with an awesome bitter citrus flavor and a nice dose of spice at the end. The flavor lingered for a nice long time allowing for full enjoyment of the hoppy citrus brew.

Mouthfeel was light in body with a slightly dry texture and a lively carbonation.

Overall a tasty and refreshing IPA with a nice spicy finish, in fact I think I will have another...
