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.

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.

A great beer that comes out very pale yellow with little bit of head great smell of hops come to the nose. Taste isn't too bitter and easy to drink would highly recommend this beer New Belgium did a really great white IPA

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.

Poured into a 13 oz Tired Hands Teku glass, best by June. Pours a very hazy yellow orange with a 2 inch sticky white head that leaves a wall of lace.

Smell orange, coriander, clove, candied sugar, banana, and grapefruit.

Taste follows coriander, orange, clove, banana, and grapefruit.

Mouthfeel is about medium, moderate life, maybe a little dry, and easy drinking.

Overall this is a nice beer, perfectly balanced from IPA to Belgian white Ale.

Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass. The appearance is a cloudy bright yellow color with a large white head. The aroma is citrus hops. The taste is slightly sour and matches the nose.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a Speiglau IPA glass.

Look is a hazy yellow amber with a fluffy head.

You can definitely smell the wheat and a lemon grass aroma on the nose.

Taste is a little less balanced than the aroma. So much of the wheat is coming through with not much from the hops.

Interesting take, but not the best of the style.

I was really happy with this. Pleasantly surprised. I wanted to drink a beer before Thanksgiving dinner, but I didn't want a hefty bitter IPA. This beer is a great easy-yet-tasty winter beer. It's got the airiness of a Wit but the flavor complexities of an APA. Great daytime bev too!
