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.

12 oz bottle, w/ best before dating

Hazed yellowy amber, off white head, leaving a smattering of fine lace.

Grapefruit nose thats on the tame side

Tasty and lighter bodied IPA with grapefruit notes all the way through it.

Decent if not spectacular.

One of my favorite IPAs. Purchased a six pack of bottles at the store and have twice gone back for more. Very crisp with a light mouthfeel, yet bold in flavor. Brings together a nice balance of bitterness and drinkability. Absolutely loved it.

Pours gold with a slight haze under a 1” white foam cap that produces thin lace. Has a grassy, herbal nose with some fruit and bread. The palate is creamy, citrusy and fruity with traces of bread. The hop bitterness is between orange and tangerine rind. There is a light sweetness that dries out on the finish. It has a creamy wheat texture with medium body and slightly below average carbonation.

Decent brew, however I expect better from New Belgium. I can respect them for thinking out of the box in terms of an IPA. Regardless I just found the taste rather strange.

A: This brew is pee yellow in color, slightly hazy with a few chunks in it, and an off white head... Not really the most appetizing in the appearance category, but I'll roll with it.

S: Grapefruit. Followed by more grapefruit, and some dank resin.

T: Some resiny hops, followed by a light and fruity orange flavor. There is a slight onion flavor in there as well. Lightly bready.

M: Medium light in body, with active carbonation.

O: Overall a decent beer, but nothing amazing. Hop centric, and fairly refreshing, but nothing to write home about.
