Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: ChrisCBeets on 09-23-2013

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.

3.7/5  rDev +0.3%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: Pours a pale gold slightly hazy at first but clearing. A finger of white foam to a thin white froth that leavs some nice lacing. Nice carbonation in the glass.

Aroma: Main thing is hops but there is citrusy and fruity aromas right there with it. A little yeast smell is there but not huge.

Taste: Nice mild hoppy flavor right off the bat. Piney and grassy notes. I personally really enjoyed the mix of flavors.

Mouth Feel: Light to medium light bodied. Very nice lasting finish

Overall: This is a really good, refreshing tasty beer. I am sorry it is only a winter seasonal.

Crisp and clean. Very good, but not too strong for a white IPA.

L- Nice bright yellow, petty hazy, small white head.

S- Very light Belgian citusy yeast, nice light aroma of Mosaic hops with some passion fruit and pine.

T- Light bitterness, light citrus and passion fruit, very light Belgian touch.

F- Medium-light.

O- A very nice offering from New Belgium and one of the better Belgian IPAs I've had. I very much enjoy the drinkability and the light citrus and tropical notes you get from Mosaic.

L (4.25) – Well, this beer is a white IPA, and it is light in color. Not white, but I can see where that comes from. A nice little amount of very white head on top.

S (4.25) – Smells really good. I definitely get the citrusy smells.

T (4.5) – Tastes just like it smells. Get the nice hop presence up front, and lingers a little on the aftertaste. In a good way!

F (4) – Appropriate carb and mouthfeel for the style. Nothing amazing or irritating either way here.

O (4.25) – I’m not quite sure why I bought this beer, but I was pleasantly surprised. I always like New Belgium beers, and this one was above average for sure. Not very familiar with the white IPA style, but I thoroughly enjoyed it. I will definitely buy again!
