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 winter beer pours a hazy yellow with plenty of bubbles and a light head. Smell is more IPA-like than white IPA-like, and the taste is pine and tropical fruits.

Pours out a very clear golden color with alot of streaming bubbles of carbonation and a white soapy head. Also noted crazy legs of lacing all down the glass.
The smell is flowery hops with a bit of fresh mowed grass thrown in
The taste is like an easy, light punch of floral hops. A very hoppy and refreshing drink.
Mouth feel is actuually farly light and easy finishing.
A very nice and decent winter IPA offering from the folks at New Belgium. Go get your bad self some and sample it before it gets away from you all.

Pours a hazy golden yellow color with a thick, white head to it. Smells of piney hops, a little citrus, and some spice. Juicy, tangerine, tropical fruit flavor that goes down easily. Nice body to it, doesn't linger around too long. Overall it's a nice IPA that does better once it's gotten a chance to warm up from fridge temps.
