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.

Favorite beer ever, along with Rolle Bolle from New Belgium. Cant help but love the interesting concoction, since I love IPA's and I love Witbiers. Pours a nice light honey-straw yellow, clear and crisp. If the mark of a good beer is lacing, this is king, since I have a shot's worth of beer lining my glass from top to bottom. All around a great drink, and nice at 6.2 abv to accumulate many beer sweaters for cold weather defense. I drank one of these on the lift at Red Lodge Mountain in Montana and it made for a darn fun ride down the hill.

Poured from 12oz bottle into 16oz glass mug.

Appearance: Slightly cloudy straw in color with a medium-sized white head that dissipates rather slowly and yields a wall of lace where the head once was. Definitely doesn't look like your typical IPA.

Smell: Hops! Lots of citrus backed up by piney and earthy aromas.

Taste: Begins citric, rounding out to more woody and bitter flavors toward the finish. Faint hints of sweet malt and a slight spice. Actually tastes a lot like a Belgian-style IPA.

Mouthfeel: Lighter body with some lively carbonation up front and a refreshing, watery finish.

Overall: A nice beer and definitely worth drinking. Seems more like it's suited for summer as opposed to winter, but a good beer nonetheless.
