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.

Accumulation of snow is not a problem here, but a white IPA? Something extraordinary, lets give it a whirl. Popping the top I get a huge citrus waft of lemon, orange and grapefruit oils with a nice sweetness in the background. Pours into my trusty SAPP to a slightly cloudy watery bright yellow with a massive white pillowy head that stands for what seems like forever, On the taste this brew has a nice citrus hop bite that is well balanced with a citrusy sweetness. The taste transitions to a more bitter middle with sweet and bitter finish that is mostly clean. Mouthfeel is light but insignificant due to overall flavor. Head holds up all the way through the brew, a nice light drinker with a good flavor kick, definitely a keeper.

Great taste. Lighter than a hearty IPA, but with a similar taste. Nice beer!
