New Belgium Accumulation Winter White IPA
|Category||India Pale Ale|
|Region||United States, Colorado, Fort Collins|
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 and winter seasonal beers. At least that's what our rebellious brewers like to claim as they shovel in plenty of mosaic and Amarillo 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. Visual: Cloudy haze, pale golden. Billows of white foam and gorgeous foam. Aroma: Strong hop aroma that displays all of our hop varieties: tropical fruits, bright citrus, spicy/herbal from the heavy dry hopping. This beer is a hoppy wonderland! Flavor: Big and bitter, just what this IPA ordered. Sweetness just barely dents its IBU armor. Nevertheless the addition of wheat really smooths out the rough bitter edge. Mouthfeel/Body: Resinous and slightly cloying from all those hop oils but finishes as clean and crisp as all of our seasonal family does and should. Medium-light body.
