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.

Served in an Ohio State shaker pint glass.

Not much snow out there today, but when have these seasonals matched up with reality anyway? This stuff pours a cloudy straw topped by a finger of lightly off-white foam. The nose comprises coriander, pine needles, light biscuit, and grapefruit zest. The taste brings in more of the same, though the pine takes on a bit of a minty character on the edges. The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a wet feel. Overall, a decent "white IPA", but nothing close to special. Next.
