Winter hit, hard. Big parts of this great country are completely covered in snow. My (dear) hometown of St. Louis, MO is sitting under a foot of the cold, white stuff (OMG, you guys). And it's not that we didn't see this coming, or that we shouldn't expect it, but when a winter blast blasts you still have to remember how to buckle down, find your warmest socks, and pair up with the best snowstorm beer of all time: Accumulation White IPA!
Let's go through this beer, shall we?
Visual: Accumulation pours a cloudy gold and the head is bright white and billowing.
Aroma: Hops, hops, hops. Tropical fruit, citrus, herbal, awesome...
Taste: Big, bold, and bitter. There is a kiss of maltiness, but the hops own this beer. Citrusy and full of mango, Accumulation is a delicious sipper. The wheat addition smooths everything out for a very enjoyable drinking experience.
Body/Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a resinous mouthfeel from the abundant hopping. But the finish remains dry and clean. And the wheat buffs a bit of the bitter edge.
Overall: Totally great, if you like hoppy beers and/or wheat beers. This beer is hoppy and creamy and warm at 6.2% ABV. Accumulation is perfect in cold, snowy weather, and it is proven to delay the onset of cabin fever by at least 12 hours.
