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 - This beer poured a very light yellow; I wouldn't say it was cloudy, but more hazy, it retained a very thin head

S - Good mixed scents with a hint of citrus

T - This beer was very typical to me for IPAs with a strong bitter aftertaste

F - Very thin in the mouth with a mild but smooth carbonation

O - Decent

Disclaimer: I'm generally not an IPA fan; I don't order them when out, but my curiosity keeps me tasting, so I try to temper my feelings when evaluating

Poured into a snifter from a twelve ounce bottle.

Cloudy straw colored body and a pale white, creamy head a finger thick. Good lacing. 4.25

Smells of Belgian yeast and sweet citrus. 4

Sweet malt, citrusy and floral with a touch of peppery yeast. Dank finish. Not bad at all. 3.75

Smooth and creamy with a bitter dry finish. I like. 4

good beer, I'm surprised by the overall rating. Should be higher, I'd say.

Presentation: Tulip Glass

Appearance: A light golden color w. a haziness.

Smell: A great floral, hoppy, fruity, citrus, wheaty wonderful aroma.

Taste: It has a powerfully floral taste with a bite of hop. A wheat undertone makes the beer taste more rounded.

One of my favorite beers I wish i could get all year-round. Has a delightfully balanced floral/hop taste that makes for a great "have to try beer".

Initial flavor and aroma is IPA, but the white beer element gradually sinks in after a few more sips. Plenty of citrusy hops--mostly lemon and lime--in the aftertaste, but there's a good malt body as well. The coriander and wheat is really nicely integrated with the hops.
