BeerHawk (1810) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - SEP 19, 2005
Bomber: This was a delightful surprise. Ive seen this one on the shelf at my local store for some time now and have passed for what ever reason because of the Pale Ale name. Grabbed it today thinking "come on, its Rogue" and I was right. This is nice! Pours a gold color with a creamy white head that stuck around for the ride and left some nice lacing rings in the glass. Nice hoppy smell of flower and lemon. The flavor was of grapefruit and spices. A bitter taste was left behind to remind you of this great ale. Light and smooth, with a dry texture. Dont pass it up, youll be surprised!

Packaged as "Yellow Snow" 22oz bomber. This was an extremely pleasant surprise! Cloudy dark golden pour with a 1/2" buttercream head. Aroma and flavor had characteristics of a fine APA (nice high-alpha hop presence), and it had the sweetness from the juniper berries. Slightly oily yet smooth and crisp on the palate. Bitter citrus berry finish was fantastic. Gotta get some more of these!

kujo9 (1095) - North Ridgeville, Ohio, USA - AUG 16, 2005
22 oz bottle: Cloudy light amber/deep gold w/a short lived thin, off white head. Soapy and citrusy lemongrass hop aroma with caramel malt as it warms. Very light hints of juniper as it warms as well as diacetyl. Low fruitiness with some perfumey pine scents. Well balanced w/ citrusy, gentle bitterness mid palate into the finish. Some very faint juniper flavor may add to the bitterness. The finish is also a bit flavored with toasty malt w/ some lingering bitterness into the aftertaste. Smooth & creamy m/f, medium full body and lower carbonation. A good pale ale with a very well restrained juniper character that adds nicely to the overall beer instead of dominating it.

Draft: Pretty damn good pale ale, really smooth, and not as bad of a bite as a lot of other pale ales.

KarmanGhia (276) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUL 25, 2005
This superb Rogue pours a pale but deep, hazy honey-gold. The head is average-sized, but it is very real and it lasts in the edge of the glass. The nose is mostly piney, but there are very subtle hints of juniper in there as well. The mouthfeel is light, but made medium by a light, smooth carbonation. The tastes range from a lightly sweet creaminess and a moderately bitter tartness upfront to a rather buttery and smoothe middle. In the middle, the mouthfeel becomes oily. The juniper presents itself ever so slightly - this is probably because it is hard to distinguish it from the piney hops. If you dont remember what juniper is like, its a bit like a Christmas wreath smell, or perhaps it is a bit like potpouri. The bitterness in the end is medium and it is laced lightly with cirtus.

FROTHINGSLOSH (7489) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 18, 2005
UPDATED: AUG 26, 2007 I am a sucker for both juniper berries and Amarillo hops and this beer has both in good quantity. I am also rather fond of this brewer so these factors combine to make a rather appealing beer for me. Sampled from a 22 oz brown bottle this beer poured a very cloudy burnt umber color with a small white head. the aroma is sweet floral, fruity and spicy hops. The flavor is sweet, lightly malty and has a strong fruity hops flavor with a spicy fruity finish. I will be getting this one again.

Medium gold color, medium head. A medium bodied pale ale. Smooth malts and spicy hops are nicely balanced. Brewed with whole Juniper berries. They give the beer a nice spicy finish. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly spicy and very slightly bitter. Nice beer. Painted/etched beer bottle.

Scubatrip (610) - Annandale, Virginia, USA - JUL 5, 2005
Out of the bottle, slightly golden in color. Sweet aroma, not overwhelmingly hoppy or malty. Tastes like beer. No specific strong flavors, but a hint of spices. Good beer.

BuckNaked (1230) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - JUL 5, 2005
Bottle: Medium amber body with orange highlights and chill haze, slightly hazy. Aroma: Light hops in the nose - grapefruit, mild orange, and light citrus - with malt notes of grain, toffee, and a hint of caramel. Theres also a slight woody, berry, spicy aroma hidden in there that must be the juniper. Taste: Starts off slightly sweet, then the hops hit almost immediately with midly bitter notes of grapefruit, citrus, spicy wood, juniper(mild gin notes), toffee, acidic caramel, and then later on some spicy sweet grains. Medium bodied, medium carbonation, nice balanced bitterness. The juniper flavor is pretty subtle overall, but definitely adds a unique difference to this beer that I like.
