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.

A: 3.75 - Very pale gold, somewhat cloudy, with a modest head.
S: 3.75 - Nice floral, grassy hoppiness, a faint tartness.
T: 3.5 - High bitterness on first taste, with moderate grassy hop flavor. Tastes like the NB house yeast, which is distinctive but doesn't add much Belgian or "white" character. In fact, it mainly tastes like a bitter Fat Tire without the malt.
M: 4.0 - Good body, moderate carbonation.
O: 3.5 - Just another forgettable seasonal beer from NB. I wish they'd find something good and stick with it, instead of giving us something new every year.
