COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Accumulation White IPA was inspired by the white beauty that falls each winter from our Colorado sky. Flurries of Mosaic and Amarillo hops bring soft fruit and citrus flavor, followed by a layer of bitter. Piled high in IBUs, Accumulation will make your winter brighter.

Ericular (686) - Minnesota, USA - OCT 22, 2013
UPDATED: FEB 22, 2014 Pours a very light straw with mild sediment, thin foam head and OK lacing. Aroma is fresh hops, citrus and rind. Taste is full with wheat lending a little smoothness to the pale malts trying to balance the grassy hops. This is pretty decent and a bit underrated.

Pours a light gold with fleeting white head. Aroma is citrus - lemon and grapefruit. Taste is hop forward, with plenty of juicy citrus, and a moderately bitter grassy finish. Tasty IPA. 7+3+9+3+14=3.6

mystiksc (60) - los angeles, California, USA - OCT 22, 2013
Smells of hops, lemon, grapefruit....maybe even a little pine. Light yellow in color, almost clear, the look reminds me of SN Kellerweis. Good amount of carbonation. Very tasty on the palate...nice hop level...very citrusy lemon, but very smooth, refreshing!. Will definitely buy more. Surprised its a winter seasonal. I would drink this year round though :)

Looks are deceiving. Very light non-descriptive color but nice combination of lemon, grapefruit and slightly sweet rye malts that finishes with a clean bitterness. I could drink this any season. Good stuff.

This beer didn’t look great out of the bottle. Large foamy head on top of a bland light gold. Looked like an adjunct. The smell was pretty good with a grapefruit sent and decent hops. Lacing was great. I rated this before reading about it, so I don’t really know was New Belgium was going for. This is a bit better than ordinary.

PhillyBeer2112 (2544) - Oviedo, Florida, USA - OCT 21, 2013
This is nice, if not a strange choice for a winter seasonal. But then, I usually like drier lighter styles in the winter, rather than the big sweet beers, even when its cold and I’m not lingering in the Florida heat. But I like this beer in any season. The hop nose is fresh, citrusy lemon rind and grapefruit juice. Malts are soft fruity, dry finish. As an aside, this is a great beer for food, I had it with spicy tacos loaded with serranos and it helped with the heat. I could easily imagine it going with burgers and pizza or hot wings, or even spicy thai food and curries.

This is the best IPA that new Belgium makes. Pours a surprisingly light color but has lots of hops. A good aroma of citrus permeates this refreshing beer, capped by a nice white head.

Appearance: pours a very very light yellow color, beer is clear, has a large white head that retains well Aroma: pine, grass, hoppy, smells good, perhaps some bread, Taste: hoppy pine and grass, perhaps some citrus, hints of yeasty bread, has a light and mild yeast flavor while being hoppy at the same time Palate: has a light mouthfeel, does leave a slight hop aftertaste, a bit frothy, vibrant carbonation Overall: very interesting beer, I like the combination of almost wheat beer with hops, ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
