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.

I gave it high marks for the color. Impressive as itís truly white. Not sure how they did that? Can smell piney fruity easters that become more prominent as it warms up. Itís not hot in flavor even though itís 6.5% ABV. Also on the palette itís not strong either. Very nice balance of hops and sweetness overall a good beer. Not great...but good.

Bottle pours a Hazy yellow with a white top. Mild nose of grains and fruit. Taste is straw and some spice with a mild bitter finish.

BrownALEx (300) - Portland, Michigan, USA - FEB 14, 2015
Citrus hops dominate the nose. Clear pour with a thick white head. Leaves nice lacing. Taste is citrus hops and pale malt. Palate is a little watery but you could drink this all day. Overall a good white ipa. Balanced.

changeup45 (1719) - Mount Dora, Florida, USA - JAN 30, 2015
Pours yellowish with a moderate white head that leaves some loose lacing. Citrusy, firm hop bitterness, but light in the body and quite refreshing. Thereís just a little malt, which I like. Like a very light, mild bread. Complimentary straw and soft herbal character blends nicely with the stronger citrus component. Definitely could see this working well in the spring and summer but itís good now too.

Xavalias (187) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JAN 29, 2015
Bottle from a Wild Plum shop in Steamboat Springs, Colorado. Pours an unclear pale yellow with a small white head that leaves a medium lacing. The taste is an interesting mixture of the wheat, lemon and coriander of a white beer, and the fruity citrus hops of an IPA. The taste is on the sweet end without compromising the bitterness of an IPA nor the slight acidity of a white. The palate is medium with a rather dry finish. Very interesting, I never had anything like this before.

mp_lane (79) - Indiana, USA - JAN 26, 2015
Pours very light yellow with thin white head (almost like a fizzy lager). Aroma is sweet fragrant fruit or spice, very nice. Taste is sweet malt, low on bitterness. Love this seasonal!

Beerdedone (2794) - Croydon, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 25, 2015
bottle. Pours a pale yellow with a short white head. Aroma of citrus, orange, grapefruit and spices. Flavor was bitter with grapefruit, pine, lemon, bread and mild fruit.

hazy white color. Phenolic nose with some white wine notes. Very light body, hoppy. Easy drinking White IPA.

Arcadia (59) - DeLand, Florida, USA - JAN 22, 2015
Bottle from ABC. Pours a shimmering gold with a frothy, bright white head; very full and lasts throughout. Lacing is excellent. Love the small visible particles, too. Aromas are overwhelmingly citrus, pine, floral. Almost a lemon taste; not very bitter at all, and smooth all the way down. Pretty thin and dry on the finish, but really enjoyable overall. Acquire.

Augdraught1981 (155) - Harlem, Georgia, USA - JAN 20, 2015
Unfiltered wheat beer appearance with suspended particles. The bitterness is slightly harsh & similar to their "Ranger" IPA. Grapefruit forward with some other citrus flavors & a dominating bitterness sums this up.

03.15.15 best by. Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a tumbler on 11.19.14. A: Candied fruit. Maybe itís candied pineapple and lemon. Itís too subtle to flesh out. A: Crystal clear lemon yellow body. 1/2 finger head that recedes fairly quickly. T: Candied lemon and ammonia dominate. A bitter sting that isnít quite pine and a spiciness are subtle. P: Watery. Bubbly on the back end. O: This should have been much better since it had Mosaic and Amarillo hops. It had an almost macro lager-like quality. Maybe itís a mass-produced quality. It was watery and without much flavor. Tl;dr: boring.
