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.

Iíve been meaning to pick this one up for awhile now. New Belgium is hit or miss with me but I was anxious to give this one a shot. Pours a nice pale, golden yellow color with a bubbly white head that leaves behind sticky lacing on the glass. Aroma is a pleasant sweet citrus, honey, and pine. This is a very citrusy IPA. Starts off slightly spicy accompanied by some bitterness from the hops, then fades into sweet tangerine. Delicious. It is very well carbonated but the mouthfeel seems to lack just a little bit but that is nitpicking. Not enough to bring down my opinion of this beer. Delicious and drinkable, what more could you ask for?

Not exceptionally aromatic for an ipa. Pale straw color with a thin white head. Nice palate with a smooth bitterness but not a very flavorful beer. A little bit underwhelming for an ipa, but a nice extra pale ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a pale golden color with a one inch white head. Body has a slight haze and a good amount of effervescence. Lacing and head retention are above average. Smell is of lemongrass, citrus rind, belgian yeast found in trippels. Light piney hops linger through out. Aromas are similar to a shandy. Taste is light and refreshing. A light lemon peel bitterness solidifies that this beer is an IPA. Pale straw malts lighten the flavor and at 6 percent, alcohol is slightly there. Mouthfeel is also light and well carbonated. Head dissipated halfway through unfortunately, Overall this beer is a good APA/IPA but im really puzzled as to why New Belgium chose to brew this as a Winter Seasonal. 2 below and Snow Day were some of my favorite winter seasonals and to replace them with a lighter bodied/flavored pale ale is unfortunate. Would have preferred to see this one as a summer seasonal but its still a solid beer.

I really enjoy this. Itís a nice light gold with a fluffy/foamy white head. It is really easy to drink but has a nice citrusy hop flavor. I will be drinking this over the winter!

Cloudy yellow with minimal head. Strong hop aroma. All I taste is hops. Fairly fizzy with a light palate. Iím not usually an ipa drinker so itís hard for me to judge.

Straw pour with small white topper. Citrus, yeast, evergreen forest aroma. Spruce hits up front followed by sweet, malty, grapefruit blend. Medium body, sticky, soft carbonation. Decent beer.

Golden yellow color with a modest white head. Aroma is of subtle citrus and taste starts as traditional pale ale then finishes with the full blown IPA bitterness. Finish is clean and crisp. Very nice!

12 oz bottle. I usually stick to just pales. This is an awesome ipa! Has the good level of hoppiness but not overbearing. A slight fruitiness but not to much. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Pours very light, pale yellow, almost straw color. Thin to moderate head which dissipates into a lace of bubbles. Smells wonderful; fruits and maybe hints of grass. Taste starts and finishes mild, with a little IPA bite right in the middle. On technical merits I enjoy it; I prefer it to the brewerís year-round Ranger IPA, but itís still a bit more bitter than I would prefer to drink.

Light amber color and light foamy head. This is a nice tasty hoppy seasonal ale. Delicious citrus flavor.
