Style: Belgian IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.20%

Availability: Fall

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.

This is one seasonal that should clearly be sold year round. Already craving the absence of Accumulation.

I can't put it in to words the best but smell and flavor are top notch for an IPA! I wish they had this for a summer brew! I've had a decent amount of IPAs but this one easily lands within my top 5!

Color is pretty great, kind of a weak head to it, super great taste and aroma though. My second to third favorite. Citrusy and pungent smell and taste, great stuff.

Pours a clear yellow. Nice and foamy and very refreshing. This is my favorite part of winter.

Presentation: Tulip Glass

Appearance: A light golden color w. a haziness.

Smell: A great floral, hoppy, fruity, citrus, wheaty wonderful aroma.

Taste: It has a powerfully floral taste with a bite of hop. A wheat undertone makes the beer taste more rounded.

One of my favorite beers I wish i could get all year-round. Has a delightfully balanced floral/hop taste that makes for a great "have to try beer".
