Cloudy golden color with a big white head. Crisp and refreshing taste but you can tell it's got a bit of a kick. No wait, it doesn't. Smooth with a mellow malty finish thats not too sweet.

What a flavorful, easy to drink ale. Strong hint of berries mixed in this bronze colored beer. I thought this beer was going to be some gross beer with a fancy name, but I was wrong. This beer is great!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bone white head towers over a muddy amber/orange body. Aroma is citrusy, notes of orange, peach, lemon, straw, flowers. Texture is very soft, palate is pleasant, balance is good, hop presence is small. All in all, a good and delicious ale, and do I detect a hint of juniper? I should, because it's in there! Good job, Rogue, on another tasty and unique beer, but, for God's sake, watch out where those Huskies go!!!!!

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
No real head at all on top of a beautiful cloudy copper that has a rather high turbidity. Spicy nose and flavor with a light undertone of the hoppy. Pretty good. Dumb pic on the label, like all their other beers, but the beer's good so I guess it's forgivable.

Bottled. Hazy orange colour with a spicy aroma. The flavour is also spicy but with hoppy undertones. A drinkable beer

UPDATED: MAY 2, 2004 Smells fresh and hoppy, with an undertone of toated malts. Flavor is a repeat of the aroma, with a pleasant bitterness and warmth going on there, as well. Very little carbonation, a good orange straw color. Good lacing. Very good example of the style.

Not much to look at, slightly hazy with no head, very yellow. Hence the name. Sweet taste in the mouth with a pleasant hoppy finish. Not too bad.

Man, I didn’t know I hadn’t rated this beer yet. I took a bomber out of the frig, sat down at the computer to wander RB and see what I had scored Yellow Show in the past…. And I hadn’t!?
LittleMonkey got me turned on to this APA. This is probably my favorite APA available here in FL. I can get it on tap at a few beer bars, which makes my life even better. Pours a gleaming bronze body and a tower of rocky white head. The aroma is dense and true with a bready and toasty Crystal and Munich malts standing out. The Crystal with a nutty and sweet character and the Munich with a more roasted offering.
I’ve gotta say that this beer is better off the tap.
IMO, The flavor is a great balance of malt and hops. I’ve got that caramel likeness and then I’ve got the grapefruit zest and piney-ness that I like in my APA’s. The palate is vivacious but oily, and the finish is long and dry. This is an always enjoyable brew!
