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.

adnielsen (10070) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - OCT 15, 2013
Bottle @ home, picked up in a six pack @ Wilbur’s 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 don’t really like any of the other hoppy beers ever released by New Belgium besides Super IPA (which, let’s be honest, was an Alpine knockoff), but this one is fun. Hope it becomes available in cans year round.

Dogbrick (9439) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - DEC 7, 2014
This beer is a pale yellow-gold color with a medium white head that evaporates steadily. Stringy lacing on the glass. Aroma of citrus, spices and wheat. Medium body with flavors of citrus, cloves and caramel malt. The finish is spicy with a malty aftertaste. Decent overall.

GT2 (9312) - San Diego County, California, USA - DEC 31, 2013
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 don’t think IPA is a fit.

shrubber85 (8998) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - DEC 6, 2013
Bottle. Tangerine, wheat malt, and orange peel/pine aroma. Pale yellow with moderate head. Sweet orange malt and moderately bitter orange peel/pine flavor. Nice blending. Very good.

arminjewell (8620) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - JAN 4, 2014
Pour on tap at the brewery, hazy golden pour with white head, aroma brought bubblegum, white fruit, hints of peach into some slight wheat, grass, touch of earth, slight pine, orange in there, hints of biscuit. Taste is a mix of biscuit, bread, touch of orange, peach, slight spice into bubblegum, touch of grain, finishing sweet.

3fourths (8598) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - OCT 15, 2013
Bottle. Fluffy white head atop a faintly hazed straw colored body. Grassy and citrus-like American hop nose, light gum, some juicy apricot / peach, though still a tad raw like straight up hop cones. Bitter bubble gum, flowers berries and cut grass raw nose, some tropical / pineapple resemblance. Some chalk / vitamin yeast seems to blur and mute the hop and malt aroma. Medium to full body, medium to high sweetness with a lot of chewy malt and saccharin. Yeast and wheat both lend creaminess to the body. A step up in quality for New Belgium IMO.

DrSilverworm (8546) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 27, 2013
12oz bottle. Mostly clear, very light yellow, sort of whitish. Thin white head. Leaves good, thicker lace. Medium-plus body. Smooth, crisp lighter carbonation. Lightly dry finish. Nice orange peel, zesty, lightly spicy flavor. Good amarillo hop, nice grassy. Moderate to stronger bitter taste, good zesty sweet. Tasty stuff.

DSG (8423) - Tel Aviv, - MAR 16, 2015
[2/17/15] Draught at The Libertine Pub in Morro Bay. Clear golden. Pleasant piney and “green” hops aroma. Hoppy flavor, piney, fruity and “green”, with pretty strong bitterness. Medium-bodied.

DuffMan (7996) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 28, 2014
Bottle. Yellow gold, lasting white head. Grapefruit and light pine, austere wheaty malts, crisp bitter finish. A nice lean IPA.
