jmuhops (669) - Winchester, Virginia, USA - SEP 28, 2004
UPDATED: SEP 29, 2004 Pours a hazy yellow with a medium-sized smooth head. Very nice light hop aroma. Taste is good, a little hoppy, with a slightly more bitter aftertaste. A decent pale ale.

SpringsLicker (3152) - Tennessee, USA - SEP 26, 2004
This has a nice clear light copper pour with a decent creamy white head. The nose is light citrus hops and a bit of malt in the background. Nice balance throughout with a finish that is slightly bitter. Average.

Yankovitch333 (612) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - SEP 21, 2004
Poured a light amber with a thick white head. Citrusy and floral aroma, with a touch of pine needles. Medium-bodied. Lemon zest, grapefruit, pine, and juniper on the tongue. Dry bitter finish. A nice APA but not the best. Not as good as Sierra Nevada.

rhapsouldize (174) - Phoenixville, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 7, 2004
UPDATED: JUN 16, 2005 22 oz. bottle (Yellow Snow). Pours golden amber in color. Very cloudy. Minimal off-white head that dissipated very quickly. Mildly citrusy, floral aroma. Light to medium-bodied. Very citrusy flavor with a mildly bitter aftertaste. Very drinkable, but not one of Rogue’s finest.

BBB63 (6051) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - AUG 26, 2004
Bottle:Hazy golden hue with small fizzy head and some lace. The aroma has notes of grassy and floral hops, slight pine, grapefruit and lemon, band-aid and pacman yeast. The taste starts moderately bitter with a dash of citric twang following. The finish was more of the same with just a bit of spice lingering. This beer is straight forward and does not display much depth. An average APA.

JonMoore (1867) - Loughborough, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - AUG 25, 2004
Bottle from Safeway. Hazy, orange coloured beer. Tight white head. Aroma is hoppy and grapefruit citrusy. Hops and citrus dominate the taste with some light underlying malt. Refreshing, crisp and light on the tongue, quite carbonated. If you don’t like your hops you won’t like this. It is supposed to be a winter beer, but seems made for the summer to me. Nice one.

mohawksin (187) - Nebraska, USA - AUG 22, 2004
Poor showing for Rogue. Looked pee colored...expected. Smelled of bitter hops, slight hint of malt. Had a creamy feel to hit, but it didn’t fit the taste.

invalid (302) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - AUG 18, 2004
Pours a cloudy yellow color, small white head. Smells of hops and a bit of malt. Very hoppy compared to most Rogue beers I’ve had - almost tastes like a hopped up Honey Cream Ale. Not bad at all.

The hops have died. Pacman Yest tastes just like juniper berries. A dead man peed in my glass and then made me drink it. BLah! G-rat

I thought this beer was quite plain considering the commercial claims. Great hops and malt balance, but nothing too unique or different. Kind of ’blah’, and the juniper berries sound nice but I’d have to question how much they contributed to my perception of this beer. If you can get this on the cheap then give it a whirl.
