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.

bhensonb (11382) - Woodland, California, USA - OCT 31, 2013
Bottle from Trader Joeís in Davis, CA. Pours translucent light gold - like some Wits. Very transient white head. Aroma is fruit and citrus - with a little caramel. And some very strange aroma. Med body, maybe. Flavor is fruit, maybe a bit tropical, with some citrus. The malt is pretty much unnoticeable. Getting some grapefruit rind. Itís a clean bitter beer, and tho I might like a little more malt (did I type that?), itís pretty decent.

brokensail (11284) - Orange County, California, USA - DEC 17, 2013
Bottle @ Hannukah Party. Hazy light yellow beer with a fluffy white head. Nose is nice grapefruit and orange hops. Some peach, dough, bread, and pineapple. Fruity esters and some subtle bubblegum. Pretty solid. Flavor is nicely sweet with plenty of dough, bread, and fruit. Good tropical notes, lots of orange, and some grapefruit. Mild to moderate bitterness.

Tmoney99 (10965) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 21, 2013
Draft. Poured hazy amber color with a medium frothy white head that lasted with good lacing. Moderate citrus and fruit aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy citrus bittersweet flavor with a medium to heavy bittersweet finish of moderate duration. My expectations where met.

adnielsen (9417) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - OCT 15, 2013
Bottle @ home, picked up in a six pack @ Wilburís Fort Collins. Pours a hazy light yellow appearance with a big white head that almost makes it look like a witbier. Really a bright juicy hoppy, pineapple, grapefruit, lemon, dank aroma. Fun aroma. Spicy, a bit dank resiny hoppy, lemon, guava, passion fruit flavor with some cracker and toasted malty notes. A bit dry and slightly chewy yeasty. I donít really like any of the other hoppy beers ever released by New Belgium besides Super IPA (which, letís be honest, was an Alpine knockoff), but this one is fun. Hope it becomes available in cans year round.

Drake (8765) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - JAN 1, 2014
12 ounce bottle from Beer Run. Pours a slightly hazy yellow color with a medium sized frothy white head. Good head retention. Aroma of grainy malts, doughy notes, herbal hops and nutty notes. The taste is pale malts, herbal hops and mild fruitiness. Medium bodied, fairly raw feeling overall. Strong carbonation. Interesting.

355mL thanks to Dedicatedtofun! Clear straw, low foam. Nose is lemon, vanilla cake, cat pee. Taste is vanilla cake, yellow apple, mild hop. Palate is soft, juicy. Simple blonde ale. I donít think IPA is a fit.
