Seemed to be opaque, but not cloudy. Golden, lasting white head, lacing. Bitter finish. Good session brew. Didn’t really taste the juniper berries.

UPDATED: FEB 13, 2005 ReRate-it has been over 2 years since i had this beer. pours a golden orange hue with a sudsy white head. Citric pale malt yeasty sweet and peachy aroma. one dimensional flavors of citrus, pale malt, and orange. juniper berries show up in the finish and give this beer a dryness. This blttle doesnt really have a huge hop profile, but they are there. Was it fresh? to be determined....
after all the bad ratings of this one, i went into this beer with a "dont care" attitude. Well, i sampled a 2002 22oz bomber bottle and i have to say that it was not bad, just nothing to write home about. The juniper berries come up a little in the hoppy finish-other than that, total pw apa

Very nice. Slightly sweet with a tart edge from a good balance on the hops and malt (and juniper). I have ha a number of juniper beers before that I couldn’t handle, but his one works for me. Spicey, herbal tones. If this were on draught I could imagine going for a session with it for a night.

Unremarkable. Not bad, but a typical APA. I didn’t really get the juniper, and the rest was just a pac NW apa.

Let it Snow, Let it Snow, but never and I mean NEVER drink Yellow snow.Hazy, yellow,Rouge Ales usually deliver, this one does not do it so well.Thin palate, lacks complexity, mild and a little bitter, a lackluster performance for a high class brewery. I’d pass on another one.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: JUN 22, 2004 2001 Bottle: Hazy honey yellow gold hue. Hoppy aroma, pine needles, light herbs and fruit. White head. Very light footed on palate, lots of carbonation, reasonably sweet first, light to medium bodied, balanced very nicely with some bittering hops, and dominated the whole time by an essence of juniper berries. Very nice, spicy, floral and herbal. Excellant, very drinkable, and well balanced.

Pours as a light IPA. A light juniper smell permeates through the taste of this beer. A litte bit of citrus. I am not too excited to drink this.

Tap. Slightly hazy golden color. Floral aroma. Somewhat like gin from juniper berries.

Slightly cloudy golden peach color. Fluffy off white head that clings to the side of the glass. Light fruity aroma. Slightly watery Bitter vegetable flavors. I hope this is an old sample, but this was purchased at a new high end wine store, so I doubt it. DO NOT drink his after the Brutal Bitter! You would think this was made by an entirely differant brewery. Ahh, piss on the pine trees.
