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.

Bottle to pint. Looks decent; a transparent gold with white head that dissipates into lacing. Smells and tastes of citrus hops with a nice, light mouthfeel. Good beer.

Braudog (5938) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - NOV 10, 2013
Bottle. Nice looking, light golden color with a big bright white head that clings to the glass quite impressively. Thereís a light citric aroma. The beer drinks with a very even-keeled balance of acidity and smooth, light malt. Very drinkable. (#5321, 11/10/2013)

Mora2000 (5879) - McKinney, Texas, USA - NOV 2, 2013
On tap at the Draught House. Yellow pour with a white head. The aroma and flavor are basic IPA. I get some citrus and pine notes with a hint of biscuit malt and a low amount of bitterness. Basic, but enjoyable.

PorterPounder (5830) - 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.

(12oz bottle) clear gold, soapy white bubbles. Nose of funk, fairly hoppy, spices, orange peel, Amarillo, and coriander. Taste of light wheat, coriander, moderate alpha acid, easy to drink.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - DEC 2, 2014
Having grown up on the southwest side of Chicago while still living in the area, Iím not too fond of the name of this beer. Itís snowing and itís not even Thanksgiving! I will try not to let that bias my rating.
It has a nice pour, a pale yellow body with a rocky, creamy head and provides sheets of lace. The aroma has grapefruit and zest, lemon pips, and a touch of cat box. The taste4 is flaky bread and plenty of citrus hops as in the aroma. Alas! The bitterness is only moderate. Boot that up a bit and Iíll drink this regularly.

beerguy101 (5319) - Newark, California, USA - NOV 15, 2013
Sampled on 11/15/2013 using a Sierra Nevada IPA Glass. This IPA pours a medium orange gold color from a 12oz bottle. Medium sized white foamy head. The aroma is piney and grapefruity, fruity and tropical. A medium to light bodied India Pale Ale. The malts are fruity and sweet. The hops are grapefruity and citrusy with some tropical and pine. Lively carbonation. Interesting balance between the malts, yeasts and hops. Somewhat like a wit, but hopped like a double IPA. Not your traditional winter beer beer, it much lighter in body and malts than one would expect, yet the hoppiness tend to linger so it is sort of working for me. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and crisp. Aftertaste is bitter.
