New Belgium Brewing (Ft. Collins, Colorado) recently announced that they are once again welcoming winter with the Seasonal release of Accumulation White IPA.
Back for its fifth year as a part of New Belgium’s Seasonal lineup, Accumulation White IPA was created as a reminder to us all that we are not just limited to big ol’ Stouts and Barleywines during the winter months. Drawing inspiration from Colorado’s white winters, this White India Pale Ale takes your mind from the cold by featuring “Mosaic and Amarillo hops, tropical aroma and soft citrus, mango and lemon flavors, followed by a bitter bite.” With the “addition of wheat really [smoothing] out the rough bitter edge”, the 6.2% ABV Accumulation White IPA comes together as an offering more than capable of taking on anything winter can throw at it.
“Dark beers tend to dominate the winter months, but we like to buck the trend with an IPA that’s bright and refreshing,” said Bryan Simpson, public relations director for New Belgium. “The addition of wheat smooths out the bitter, hoppy flavors and provides a clean, crisp finish. Accumulation offers an ideal counterpunch to the cold winter months to come.”
Accumulation White IPA is available now and will be hanging around through January of 2018. You can expect to find this Seasonal offering in 6-packs of 12 oz. bottles and on draft at craft beer establishments located in Alabama, Florida, Colorado, North Carolina, and throughout the rest of New Belgium’s distribution area. Prost!
