Bottle at Beer Temple. Bold orange amber body with medium head. Hoppy and citrus nose. Sweet and fruity, although subdued taste. Lots and lots of hops and pine. Really delicious. Great bitter finish. Block (3183) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - JUL 24, 2010
Hazy orange pour. Aroma is hoppy with citrus and lemon. Bitterness is mild with a sweet finish. Some lingering bitterness. Very smooth and sessionable. Frank (4236) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 4, 2010
I was kind of surprised to find I had not rated Rogue Yellow Snow because I did rate Rogue Yellow Snow. Turns out, Yellow Snow is now Rogue Juniper Pale Ale and the name Yellow Snow is attached to an IPA. Fun stuff, Rogue. Thanks for being confusing. Confusion aside though, this is a decent IPA and I am pretty glad to have picked it up now that I know not to overlook it on account of its name having previously been used for a beer I’m not particularly fond of. The cloudy orange color is nice enough and it’s topped w/ a long-lasting white head. I really enjoy the nose. It is something a little different w/ a very intense mandarin orange aspect. Taste-wise, it is balanced slightly towards soapy, piny, resinous bitter despite being not all that dry. Some baby flower floral notes come out as it warms and it finishes w/ a long, lingering bitterness. This is a good beer by whatever name and I probably would have though so long ago had I known to even give this a try.

Deep amber pour with a moderate off-white head. Nice crisp hops and sweet citrus aroma. Flavor is predictably hoppy and smooth with the sweet citrus rounding it out nicely. Nice beer. imaragingbull (579) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JUL 3, 2010
650ml Bomber. Pours clear orange-gold with small resilient off white head. Light aromas of sweet toffee and very noticeable Amarillo hops. Medium body, bitterness well accentuated with underlying sweet caramel notes. Finishes medium and chewy with bitterness lingering on alongside the pacman yeast flavour. A good one from rogue ales. andyhwcinc (1886) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 30, 2010
I had this as part of a sampler at the House of Rogue in Newport, OR. Appearance is clearish gold with a frothy head. Aroma consisted of hay and slight hops. I knew going into trying this that it’s an IPA and by the aroma I didn’t think it was one. Taste is not really hoppy, kinda thin, not really an IPA more of an OK pale ale. mnurda (1299) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - JUN 29, 2010
On tap at The Freakin Frog in Las Vegas. Not as hoppy as I would have preferred. Should likely try this again dimenhetfield (2554) - , Florida, USA - JUN 25, 2010
UPDATED: JUN 26, 2010 Has a clear orange brownish pour with a dark hazy middle to it. The aroma has notes of flora hops with hints of citrus. Pretty damn delicious.
