MoDog (927) - Griffith, Indiana, USA - FEB 3, 2009
Poured from a 22oz bomber and served in a shaker. This IPA poured a hazy golden amber with a thick, creamy beige head that lasted forever. Heavy lacing coated the glass. The aroma included mild grapefruit, lemon, grass, and a bit of biscuity malt. The flavor was mildly grassy, with notes of citrus and light caramel. Very mild for the style. A moderate bitterness lingers for a few seconds. The mouthfeel was medium-bodied and had moderate carbonation. Pretty tame for an IPA, but it is easy-drinking and has decent flavor.

Juelze (1135) - Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 31, 2009
Pours a cloudy yellowish color with medium offwhite head. Aroma is light floral hops and lemon. Taste is light lemon, floral hops and toasted malt. Light bitterness in the finish but finishes clean in the swallow. Meh.

Petrucci914 (902) - Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 31, 2009
Pours a golden color with lots of particulate and a medium creamy head that leaves plenty of glassy lacing. Aroma is a bit weak - sweet malts, some citrus and yeast. Taste is sweet malts, some citrus and grassiness.

EricE (1368) - Silver Spring, Maryland, USA - JAN 31, 2009
Orange-yellow pour with a thick fluffy white head. Slight haze with some stuff floating around. Skunky yeasty aroma reminiscent of sandpaper. Malty flavor. Grainy with little hop flavor. Perhaps this was an old bottle, but really not very good.

22 oz bomber. Amber/copper pour with a thin white frothy head. Slightly cloudy. Aroma of citrus hops with pine in the background. Taste of grapefruit and slight malt with a medium palate and slight peppery finish.

gnoff (7466) - Mölndal, SWEDEN - JAN 28, 2009
65 cl bottle at OT, Stockholm, On January 25, 2009
Hazy orange color, small white head. Cheezy hoppy scent. Bitter, citrus, apricots, hoppy, dry taste. Dry bitter lingering aftertaste. Medium mouthfeel, high bitterness. A bit less alcohol and a bit sweeter and it would have been most excellent, now a bit too bitter in comparison to how dry it is, at least for me that is.

ilherps (248) - Carbondale, Illinois, USA - JAN 27, 2009
UPDATED: JAN 29, 2009 Pours amber/yellow, with thin white foam, and is just a touch hazy. Yellow snow opens with a very citrusy nose, with lemon, grapefruit, pine resin, and fresh hops being noticeable. The first sip fills the palate with strong hops, and the citrus too, but a strong piney hop flavor is dominant, and there is just a slight hint of maltiness. There is also a sugary flavor like cotton candy bubble gum. I think this IPA is one of the best I have tried. It is not balanced, but I do love a hop heavy beer. Th flavors do compliment each other, and I am really enjoying this one. The finish is lasting more than a minute after a sip!!!

NobleSquirrel (3437) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 24, 2009
Bottle from Binny’s Lakeview. Pours a very nice looking gold with a stick foam head that lasts. Nose is not fruity at all, which is odd with amarillo. I think I get a touch of corn/DMS, mostly savory and almost meaty in the nose. touch of dank and resin and graininess, likely from the melanoidin. Taste is super soft, dominated by the grains in this one. No amarillo character. Smooth and easy drinking but I’m not a fan. Mediocre.

SamGamgee (2452) - down the whirlpool, California, USA - JAN 24, 2009
Draught at The Reef. Dark gold-orange with a lasting sticky head. Piney and lightly floral hop aroma. Dry, almost nutty and crackery malt with a piney and herbal hop bitterness. Finishes bitter and long. Hops seem very similar to other hoppy Rogue beers, and there is this almost indescribable house character that I am getting out of them lately that is almost lie a nutty, buttery cracker. It’s a bit peculiar, but this one is hoppy enough to remain passable.

ruggedman (647) - Portland, Maine, USA - JAN 24, 2009
On tap at Novare Res. Pours an amber color with a foamy white head. Kind of a weird flavor, lots of grapefruit and citrus type hops. The malt is also sort of weird with a caramel type flavor. I dont know, to me it just doesn’t mix quite right.
