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.

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.

Unfiltered wheat beer appearance. Grapefruit & slightly harsh bitterness similar in taste to their ranger IPA but with a better body.

Easy drinking but not that flavorful. Hop presence on the nose though. Enjoyed smelling it more.
