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.

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.

Transfer from BA review on 11-14-13- Poured from bottle into a pint glass Appearance – The beer pours a light golden color with lots of little carbonation bubbles seen streaming up through the brew. Upon pouring there is a one finger of pure white head that fades rather rapidly at first, but ends up leaving a very persistent film on the surface of the brew and a nice level of foamy lace on the sides of the glass. Smell – The aroma is biggest of a citrus hop smell of a sweeter grapefruit and lemon nature. Along with these aromas are some nice tropical fruit smells of papaya, mango, and tangerine. Other more bready smells, some hop aromas of a herbal and grassy smell, as well as with a little bit of yeast and spice, meld with the rest to produce a rather sweet and fruity hopped aroma overall. Taste – The taste is much drier then would have been anticipated from the nose. It begins with a light fruity sweetness of some light tropical fruits and tangerine. By far the strongest flavor upfront is a biscuit and bready flavor which is combined with some grapefruit and lemon hop tastes. The sweeter flavors fade as the taste advances with the bready flavors transitioning to a more cracker like flavor. The grapefruit and lemon hop grows stronger as the taste moves on as well, and combines with some other hop flavors of an earthy, herbal, and grassy nature more toward the end of the taste, to leave a rather dry malt and moderately hopped flavor to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the slightly thicker and chewier side for a Belgium IPA of only 6.1 % abv with a carbonation level that is on the average to slightly above average side. The thicker and chewier body really accentuates the hop and dry flavors of the brew, while the carbonation level add a nice level of a tantalizing feel on the tongue to match the hopped nature of the brew. Overall it was rather nice for the flavor profile of the beer. Overall – A fairly nice and tasty IPA with a good blend of citrus hop and drier malt with a body and aroma that produce a rather nice drinking brew overall.

On tap at Historians Ale House Dec, 2013. Pours straw gold with small head. Aroma of grapefruit hops. Big carbonation and mouthfeel. Flavors of grapefruit rind hops, white grapefruit juice, bright hops, slight toothpaste, candy cane. Overall big and bold refreshing hops with mint...bright and flavorful.

jcr (2220) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - JUL 8, 2014
Bottle. Light golden body. Frothy, white head, lasting. Aroma of resin, raw grain, citrus. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Light nose for an IPA, especially a white IPA that one would expect more citrus and more spice.

troyc (2473) - Illinois, USA - JUN 11, 2014
[Bottle] Pale golden pour with a fluffy looking white head. Has a slight haze to it. Nose is of citrus hops, without much wheat character. Flavors include wheat malt, floral hops, grapefruit, lemongrass and bitter citrus zest in the finish. A nice beer.

emacgee (4046) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - APR 30, 2014
Pours a soft pale white with two fingers of rocky white head. Nose is soft and fruity with some floral and spicy character showing. Very lean and dry in the flavor with the spice and bitterness being accentuated. Has a weird ’poultry’ character in the flavor. Not too sure what I think about this.

Pours a straw yellow color with white head. Citrus and light fruits on the nose, with a little amount of flowery hops; follow onto the palate.
