Notes/Commercial Description:
This winter, IBUs start accumulating like snow in Colorado with our new Accumulation White IPA. Brewing a white IPA was not only a way to salute the white beauty falling from the sky, but a direct revolt to the longstanding tradition of brewing dark beers for winter. At least that’s what our rebellious brewer Grady Hull likes to claim as he shovels in plenty of new hop varietals and a bit of wheat for a smooth mouthfeel. Stack up a few cases of Accumulation White IPA to keep your long nights glowing blizzard white.

Appearance: Very pale yellow. Frothy white head. Leaves a decent lace.
Smell: Pungent pine. Some grapefruit.
Taste: Bitter, spritzy, pine.

Very interesting. The smell is unique in its funkiness, and the taste has a bitter pine something going on. I like it. I don't know if I'd get it again though. It's certainly good, just unique.

Interesting beer. Extremely pale, almost watery, complexion. Decent head and lace. The smell is pungent....musty hops....tree ark, mushroom, earth, and grain. Me nteresting, but not great. The taste is dryish, but no overly so. Moderate bitterness. Just okay.

A pale yellow, maybe pineapple juice color. Slight haze. Minimal white head. I was expecting maybe something akin to a wit in color, and although it's not real far off, it's not exactly what I was expecting.

Smell is pine and lemon and maybe a touch of Cheez-itz. Some spic e as well, but I can't quite put my finger on it - maybe a bit of clove? Overall, a nice smelling Christmas IPA.

Very carbonated and light bodied.

Taste is fairly subdued. It's somewhat fruity and piney and not much else. Not really digging it. It's not real bitter, but it has some bitterness. Not picking the spice in the taste. Kind of blah.

Not really what I was expecting. The flavor was pretty bland and poor. Straw yellow color.
