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.

BMan1113VR (7917) - Los Angeles, California, USA - DEC 10, 2013
Bottle. Pours with a clear, quite pale hued body with a large, foamy and retentive white head. Aromas are of grass, resin, tropical fruit, mosaic. Lightly fruity esters, very mild malt. Flavors are fruity and mildly bitter with peach, mango, tropical fruit hop notes. Grassy, very nice subtle malt toasty character (soft). Mild esters, citrus rind. Medium bodied with fuller carbonation.

drowland (7887) - Georgia, USA - DEC 3, 2013
11/26/13. On tap at Barley’s, downtown Asheville. Hazy orange pour with a small off-white head. Mild aroma, plenty of hops, citrus and a little dank, hints of spice. Nice mild flavor, citrus combination from the IPA aspect and the witbier aspect, mild spice. Not bad.

after4ever (7579) - Brier, Washington, USA - DEC 1, 2013
Draft at SB. Pours a cloudy pale yellow with a loose white head that sticks around, leaving plenty of webby lace. Big spicy nose, lots of coriander and clove and white pepper. Mild fruity counterpoint. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Nice tangy sweetness played off against white pepper and light wit spice esters on the mid palate, with a finish that gets progressively cloudier and stickier as the pint goes on. Not too bad overall.

PorterPounder (7330) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - SEP 21, 2013
Tallahassee, Fl - ABC Fine Wine & Spirits - 12 oz bottle. Pours a slightly hazy light golden with a soft snow white head that leaves a light bit of lacing. Aroma is sweet and succulent with some light notes of spruce, some juicy passion fruit. Full bodied flavor with some light bitter citrus notes, some mango fruitiness, a touch of maple syrup sweetness. Mouthfeel has a nice stickiness to it. Excellent.

Ernest (7320) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - NOV 5, 2013
Bottle (BB Mar 2014). Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, mostly lasting. Body is light to medium yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (grain), lightly hoppy (resin), with notes of Silly Putty / plastic, mold, concrete, toulene. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter, very unclean. Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Seriously? What the hell. I am absolutely perplexed by NB’s direction anymore. Even if you ignore the fact that, once again, they’ve created a "winter" seasonal that has none of the qualities one would expect from winter beers (sweet, rich, possibly spiced, boozy/warming, etc.), they have created a so-called White IPA with virtually zero aromatic elements of EITHER style. Almost no hops in the nose, and I couldn’t find any witbier spices. Now maybe "White" IPA means something totally different to the Salazars (the picture of snow on the label?), but even the IPA aromatics are all but missing. Worse, though, instead of smelling like nothing, the odors it *does* have smell like a mess of chemicals...imagine walking through a glue factory. And the dirty aftertaste confirms that my nose is correct...it actually made me wince from the resemblance to drinking solvents or modeling glue. I’m beyond perplexed, honestly...what am I supposed to do with this? How can anyone, especially NB, make something this terrible and apparently not even realize it? And nope, it ain’t the glass, ’cause I used the same one (with a good rinse in between, of course) that I used for the Wasatch white IPA review. Truly amazing.

onceblind (7313) - Denver, Colorado, USA - NOV 10, 2013
Hazy straw golden with a pillowy white head. The nose is great, with nice yeasty wheat bread tones along with some piney and grassy whole hop cones. The taste is nice and full with a wheaty smoothness in the background, leaving a wee pale malt sweetness to back up a resinous grassy and piney hop flavor, and some orange peel. Very smooth and delightful.

12oz bottle. Poured a hazy golden color with a large white head. Aroma was light grapefruit, banana notes, some straw with a touch of Belgian yeast. Flavor was light straw, with some lemony notes, light cloves. Yeasty. Pretty tasty.
