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.

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

Over all a decent beer. Kinda felt like I was drinking a light beer rather than a IPA

Wheat aroma with soft peach notes.

Flavor is slightly sweet, but finishes bitter. Extremely light and floral. Touch of fruit, but it's subtle.

A very solid beer for $9 a six pack. Nice hop profile and an easy light drink.
