This is a good beer but it has a few problems that keep it from being great.
Accumulation is a white IPA that pours a flat straw color with white head. The head laces and retains well. The aroma is up front and hoppy! Floral and bitter. Not much of the wheat malt coming through or the yeast. This is the problem with the beer imo. The taste, which follows the nose, is entirely hop based. Now that isn't a bad thing but it leads to an unbalanced beer that is only fun to drink if you want a hop only beer experience. I'd like a more balanced beer with this same hop profile. Something with a more biscuit and caramel flavor. As is the wheat based malt bill and yeast are just too shallow with the overpowering hops this brew has.
Check it out if you're a hop head but this isn't worth a six pack purchase imo. Just another IPA on the market. le sigh.
