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.

Poured a hazy light gold. Almost no head. Looks OK
Smell. Citrusy bubblegum? Not sure if a bad bottle, but the bubblegum aroma is not pleasant.
Taste. Not pleasant either. Strange citrus with some kind of sweet...taste less bubblegum, hint of wood? Either a bad bottle, or something in this is just not my taste. Not pour down the drain bad, but definitely will not buy or recommend.
Mouthfeel was good. However weird the taste was, it still had a crisp, smooth feel...so its got that going for it

Poured a very hazy yellow-white color with a two finger white head that quickly disappeared. Heavy lacing. Aroma of grapefruit soda. Taste of citrus and light hops. Medium carbonation with light mouthfeel. Overall, drinkable but out of place for me as a winter brew. I will keep my doppelbocks, winter warmers and wee heavies.

Pours a very light golden color, almost white. White head. Lots of lacing on the glass.
The nose is quite citrusy.
Taste is citrusy. Orange seems to dominate.
Juicy feeling, and not watery at all.
I do like this beer. Good flavor and feel.

Wheaty yellow cloudy look. Small to no head. Tastes like citrus and summer. No bitterness and hard go believe it is an IPA. That’s Amarillo hops for ya. Smooth easy and no complex taste.

Pours a hazy white/yellow with a white head and some floaties. Smells of citrus, hops, and yeast. Tastes of Belgian yeast, hops, citrus, and light malt. Medium in body and carbonation. Overall a pretty tasty Belgian IPA.

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Poured from a 12 oz bottle.
Look - cloudy lemon yellow, with a greater than three finger head that overflowed. good lacing with excellent retention.
Smell - citrus, pine, seconded by bananas (most likely from the yeast)
Taste - hop flavor comes through, but not overly bitter. a bit more bitterness in the finish with some fruitiness in the end. quite nice
Feel - medium bodied, low to medium carbonation, medium alcohol.
Overall - to me, this is a milder version of Voodoo Ranger. It's not as bold, but I like it much more for the smoothness and the Belgian twist. A "rebellious" beer in the winter that I am happy to have more of

Looks a lemony color with faint orange.
Smells like it tastes.
Taste is a little citrusy with pine, reminds me of the Voodoo Rangers with less bitterness.
Mouth feel is really nice, almost a medium body with a softer(not sure if that's the right word?) carbonation.
Overall it's a decent cheap beer that drinks easy.
