3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
I’ve gotta say it. Accumulation is underrated. Perhaps criminally so. The clear, golden body reveals lively carbonation. Up top is tightly-packed head that truly does look like snowfall. Whoa, look out. There’s going to be some grand musings here. Aroma showcases spicy hops, tropical hops, pine, and spruce. Flavor combines smooth wheat malt, mildly juicy hops, and hoppy/Belgian-ish spices. Mouthfeel is nearly spritzy and there’s plenty of bitterness. Accumulation is just the kind of festive treat I need to kick off the Winter IPA season.

Bottle at Andy and Natalie’s house. Nice golden body with medium head. Nose malts, floral, some hops. Taste is lots hoppier, with fruit and honey notes. Enjoyable.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle poured into a snifter glass - 11/06/2015. Pale cloudy yellow colour with a small white head which quickly dissipates. Nice lacing. Citrus, hops and sweet grain in the aroma. Nice bittersweet flavour, with orange, lemon peel and a little spice. Dry and bitter fruity IPA style ale. Pretty good.

Bottle - Hop forward beer with this one, a dry taste as well. No malt sweetness and I do taste some vague hints of spice.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Translucent golden yellow. No head. Satisfying aroma containing notes of sweet malted wheat. bubblegum, citrus, vanilla, and hops. Light bodied and smooth. Hops are immediately present and linger throughout the entire duration of the taste. Other present flavours include citrus, a smooth wheat backbone, and a spruce finish. I would have preferred a more prominent white flavour, but still quite good.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draught at Old Chicago Plaza 205, Portland
Hazy blond color, creamy head. Smooth beer; the malt base is sweetish but non descriptive; the hopping is very good, fresh, fruity, peachy, citrusy, and a bit musky.

1.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
From pictured bottle. Pale ale with things floating around in there. Taste is fairly pointy and astringent. Yes, difficult citrid taste. Chewing on green lemon rinds. Smell is simple compared to the flavor impact. Perfectly on style. Even covers any sense of carbonation. Just glad to have it during these difficult times.
