-golden yellow with mild white head. Spicy hop nose. Mild malt flavor, probably could be an improvement, but the contrast between the appearance and the strength of flavor is a nice contrast. The hop flavor is tremendous, a very piney and powerful presence. One of the best rogue beers I have had, a good version of an ipa

Sample at the holiday beer tasting at Blacklick Wine & Spirits on 11/13/08. This beer is a hazy orange-amber color with a medium thin off-white head that dissipates steadily. Stringy lacing. Aroma of citrusy hops, apricot and malt. Medium body with flavors of hops, grapefruit and a touch of sweet malt. The finish is moderately bitter with a lingering hops aftertaste. Pretty good overall.

Bomber. Pours a golden orange with a three-finger fluffy head. Aromas are heavy with pineapple and pine with a little bit of a malty sweetness lurking. Flavor is very bitter from the hops... grapefruit peel and other citrus (especially in the aftertaste), mingle with some more sweet fruit tones (and maybe a touch of honey). Still, things end decidedly bitter, which is an adequate finish on a snowy day.

Bottle from WF Portand. The bottle I had was just great, boasting both fresh-tating hops and the heavy, satisfying flavor of a hearty IPA. Light citrus rind, honey and earnest flowers round the experience. I was shocked!

Labeled Yellow Snow IPA in a 64oz jug from Eagle River Liquor in Fulton, IL. Pours cloudy light burnt orange with a decent off white head that fades pretty quickly. Aroma is very pleasantly balanced pine and citrus hops, plenty of caramel malts, burnt sugar, marshmallow, toffee, and some planty notes. Flavor is lots of pine hops, a little citrus, hints of lime. Maltiness is light and playfull more of the burnt sugar and marsmallow notes, a smattering of caramel malts and a little straw. Finish is a little tart and bitter, lots of pine notes and some lingering toffee, oddly dry right at the end. Body is thin and sweet other than right at the finish, a little sticky. An excellent IPA.

(Bottle. as ’’Yellow Snow IPA’’). Crisp citrus aroma. Orange-amber body, large off-white head. Hoppy citrus flavor, nice bitter finish. An excellent IPA from an excellent (if over-priced) brewer.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: OCT 28, 2013 Yellow snow! Copper with a nice sized white head. Aroma is citrus hops, caramelized sugar, red gummy bears. Flavor is caramel, citrus hops, burnt toffee, and a bit of cherry and cat box. Finishes bitter with a good amount of carbonation.
Update! New batch was complete garbage if you’re looking for an IPA. Very light bitterness, minimal if any hop presence, doughy like malt profile. Lightly sweet. Just flavorless really.

Yellow Snow? It looked great in my new beer glasses from Crate & Barrel with a spongy looking head that never went away as it laced to the bottom. The intense hoppy nature caught me off guard as the dark yellow IPA was easy to drink, though it took a little time to identify the parts involved in the creation.
