This winter, IBUs start accumulating like snow in Colorado with our new Accumulation White IPA. Brewing a white IPA was not only a way to salute the white beauty falling from the sky, but a direct revolt to the longstanding tradition of brewing dark beers for winter. At least that’s what our rebellious brewer Grady Hull likes to claim as he shovels in plenty of new hop varietals and a bit of wheat for a smooth mouthfeel. Stack up a few cases of Accumulation White IPA to keep your long nights glowing blizzard white.
A little late but this beer starts my 21 Days of the Season.
Aroma: Very floral/citrus on the nose. It's the first thing you notice as the glass comes to you nose.
Look (Appearance): Pours clear and straw colored with a white head the disappeared rather quickly.
Taste: Pepper across the front of the tongue with slight hop bite at the back of the tongue. Bitterness lingers but is not harsh. Slight citrus notes.
Mouthfeel: Medium light (body) mouthfeel with moderate carbonation.
Second Look (Overall Impression): Really did not know what to expect from a white IPA. I think this beer would be welcome in the Winter or the Summer. The beer is a little tricky in that for its taste profile and mouthfeel it is very easy to drink, yet with an ABV of 6.2% you would quickly feel its effects.
