A - Pours a very light beer tone, faint yellow, a tad shallow, you can see the carbonation rise, with about a 1 1/2 finger head that disappears fairly quickly.

S - At first I could smell the carbonation, reminded me of a mineral water. A very mild orange, grapefruit, mildly hopped. Not much malt, no bread; however, the sweet undertones do make up in this aspect.

T - Taste is very bland, subtle, no complexity from the hops. Subtly sweet and a mild dryness towards the end.

M - Very light bodied, carbonation exhausts the palate from tasting.

O - I will not be having this again. Purchased a 6 pack of this for $10, kinda upset I'm stuck with 5 more bottles... definitely not worth the price. The smell is subtly awesome; however, drinking this was reminiscent of drinking a bud light. No taste and carbonation that drowns the palate. The only thing I liked was the smell and finish. Other than that, this was extremely disappointing.

Pretty ok IPA from new Belgium. Not much mouthfeel or smell but a distinct hoppy fruity balance. Very drinkable. One that I could have afew in the night and not get sick of. Needs a bit more hops but a good beer for non IPA drinkers to enjoy. It's drinkability makes it appeal to me for sure

Serving type: on-tap

Why mess with a good thing? Snow Day was a great beer and im disappointed you replaced it with Accumulation. Accumulation is a good beer also but no were near as good as Snow Day. Its a Disappointment it is not returning as I was looking forward to it in 2013. Bring it back please
