New Belgium Accumulation White IPA Returns

New Belgium's Winter Seasonal, Accumulation White IPA is back for its fifth year. For more, see below:

Ft. Collins, Colo., Oct. 3, 2017 – Inspired by Colorado’s white winters, New Belgium Brewing’s Accumulation White IPA is available beginning today through January 2018. Now in its fifth year, the wintertime favorite features Mosaic and Amarillo hops, tropical aroma and soft citrus, mango and lemon flavors, followed by a bitter bite. The medium-bodied IPA pours unfiltered gold and blizzard white with a snowy head.

“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.”
