SFLpunk (134) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - MAY 16, 2009
5L mini-keg. No date. Appearance: Poured into .5L mug. 2 fingers of fluffy white head that took a while to fade down and coated the glass. Somewhat cloudy (no particles) and copper/amber in color. Nose: Somewhat muted, sweet clover honey, orange blossoms, sweet orange juice, hint of pine and maybe sage? Palate: Medium-bodied and bitter right off the bat! Carbonation is a *little* dicey, maybe the pour, maybe the container. Not bad mouthfeel though, just lightly carbonated. The bitterness of the hops round out the mouthfeel though. Dry and lingering finish is all about dusty pine and cedar and dried citrus rinds. Lots of flavors here! Notes: A great purchase (got it on a closeout deal for less than half-price, but didnít let that influence my review). Was a little worried how the mouthfeel would be, but as far as I can remember, itís very similar to the bottle. A great beer, highly recommended to people who like dry, aggressively bitter IPAs.

Sparky (2243) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - MAY 14, 2009
Bomber courtesy of douglas88 Ė thanks! Pours a dark cloudy orange with a one finger creamy off-white head that leaves spotty lacing. The nose is toffee and citrus hops. The taste is caramel and ripe citrus with a tart grapefruit finish that lingers on the palate. Medium bodied. Decent IPA Ė thanks again Douglas!

I love to drink beer, and I love to urinate outdoors, so Rogueís Yellow Snow IPA sounded like the perfect option for a winter night. The pour is a very hazy light orange with a nice white fluffy head. No lacing what-so-ever, and very little carbonation. I cant smell much, just a little yeast. Not a whole lot of flavor on this one, the hops are bitter, and dont have much else, no fruity or citrusy finish, just a little pine with a bitter finish.

My second Rogue beer. A pour of hazy orange golden colour with a white head. Aroma is sweet and hoppy. Taste is hoppy, slightly malty, sweet and hints of grass and lemon. Aftertaste is minimal. Overall, a fairly complicated IPA but a good beer.

tennisjoel (1173) - Rochester, Minnesota, USA - MAY 1, 2009
UPDATED: MAY 2, 2009 Hazy amber pour with an average white head. Interesting aroma for the style. Sweeter almost like a IIPA. Based on that I expect it to be more malt heavy. Like a sugary version of an IPA. I kind of like this though. Somewhat different from many others in the style and unique for a regular strength IPA. Pretty good. Actually the flavor gets a bit cloying as I keep sipping this, causing me to deduct a couple tenths of a point. Probably the pacman yeast that frankly Iím not too fond of. As I keep drinking, this is one up and down beer. It seems as though Iíll like it for a while, then the taste goes south, but then it improves to a good beer. This is truly a mystery beer. One minute I like it, the next I donít care much at all for it. Weird, as Iíve never quite had an experience like this with a brew before.

twitcher (298) - framingham, Massachusetts, USA - APR 28, 2009
bottle. Pours a mildly hazy dull light amber color, big thick two inches of pillowy head that sticks around well. Aromas of mixed light fruity tangerine sweetness and some mild sharpness. Subdued but pleasant aroma. Flavor starts with a sharp astringent hop bitterness, citrus and floral notes. Semi sweet, chewy bread malt body. Slight astringent notes on the flavor as well. Palate also shows some of that astringency, full flavor, light on the carbonation, with a slightly bitter finish. Seems to be some inconsistency with this one- Iíve had bottles that were close to superb, and some the were only good. Overall a likeable if flawed IPA.

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - APR 28, 2009
Bottle might have been from capones but im not sure. Pours an amber golden body with an off white head. Sweet with a nice hoppy body citrus, and some lighter grapefruit. I would have liked more hops to really intensify the flavors here. A good offering for a large release.

Sampled at Dark Lord Day 09. Thanks to the Shoreline Mug Club members outta South Bend for bringing this one. Quite honestly, I thought this was a decent IPA, although nothing outstanding. The little 1-2 gallon keg it was in was pretty cool, and I could see drinking this at some kind of picnic, but compared to some of the other stuff I was drinking at the same time, it was just "meh". Great hop profile, nice bitterness, and balanced.

manuchampions (1237) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 26, 2009
22oz bottle. Funky but subdued hop aroma on pouring. Lighter yellow gold than many other IPAís. Tastes very citrus and floral with a solid biscuity malt. Finished well but not as great as some of the other IPAís Iíve been sampling recently.
