Notes/Commercial Description:
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.

From bottle into a pint glass.

Pours with a nice head, good lacing and very clear as you might expect from a white. Nice hoppy aroma with a pleasant nose feel. Taste is light with a nice mix of hops, something that I didn't really expect. Actually found myself pleasantly surprised by this one.

12oz bottle (actually two of them) poured into a large mug
best before: 16Mar14

A: Pours a very light, straw yellow, absolutely crystal clear with lots of carbonation bubbles. 1/2 a fingers width of bright white head dissipates down fairly quickly but leaves a good amount of segmental lacing.

S: Pale malts, sweet citrus, tart lemon, floral hops. Nice, but fairly mild.

T: Piney bitterness, citrus rind, pale and sweet malts balance out the hops. Diacetyl and medicinal phenolics are somewhat off flavors. A bit of booze which is surprising given the relatively low ABV.

M/D: Lighter side of medium body, heavy carbonation, a bit boozy, drinkability is fair.

O: Overall, not impressed with this one. Not bad, but too many good IPAs out there for me to think about purchasing this one again.
