3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a hazy golden color with a nice white head. Smells of hops and citrus. Nicely hopped without being overpowering. This is a relatively strongly flavored IPA without being a double/imperial. This beer has a lot of flavor but is pretty easy to drink. This beer can definitely stand up to a cold winter night without being thick or heavy. One of the better winter IPAs I have had.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cloudy copper-orange with white head. Smells nicely of grapefruit, orange, and flowers. Taste is full of grapefruit and flowers, a little sweet and a little bitter. Really well balanced beer. Nice body and finish. I can’t believe I never knew yellow snow tasted this good. Guess I’ll try some more...

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A cloudy copper pour with white head. It has a hoppy aroma with orange zest. The medium body has lively carbonation and a bitter taste that hangs in the back of the mouth. The finish is dry and very bitter.

Poured from bomber into small yard, fitting color given the name...looks identical, healthy head, light aroma of hop. A bit bright on the palette for my tastes, turns sour. Not one of my favorite Rogues by any means. Glad I got these at a steal of a price.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from a 22 ounce bomber into a Duvel tulip.
Appearance: Pours a clear light golden caramel color with orange highlights and a 2 finger fluffy white head. Nice lacing.
Smell: Grapefruit and pine with just a bit of orange and a very light hint of sweet bready malt in the background.
Taste: Grapefruit up front then a mild bit of sweet malt in the middle before another round of bitter hops at the finish. Aftertaste is bitter pine and lemon zest.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a nice amount of carbonation.
Drinkability: Good drinkability. You shouldn’t have any difficulty finishing a bomber.
Overall: Good IPA overall. A solid offering from Rogue that is definitely worth trying.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Big floral aromatics bit of stank...aromatics are the best part of this brew...hops hops hops. Honey notes do come through with air and as it warms. Very green tasting and bitter hop bomb. Pretty good beer if you are in the mood for it. Should say I tasted after Diamond Knot and Laurelhurst IPAs, both much more balanced sweeter IPAs, so my palate may be more sensitive to the bitterness of this guy. Good beer if you just want a one-dimensional hop bomb.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
lucent copper, thin white head, full body, medium carbonation.
aroma: piney citrusy hops, caramel malt, bready yeast.
taste: bready caramel malt backbone, with lots of aromatic piney citrusy hops.
Hoppy but balanced, and the amarillo hops are very complex american hops with pine and citrus and floral notes. A good american style ipa.
