650 mL bottle. Pours a cloudy amber with moderate head. Aroma is extremely hoppy, strong citrus notes (orange/pineapple). Taste is slightly sweet moving to a strong bitter. Moderate carbonation, full body, long bitter finish. Really like this one. MrManning (2009) - Hamilton, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 20, 2010
Bottle- Hazy yellow. Pours a huge fluffy bleached white cap. Nose is intense piney and citric hops, marijuana leaves, some perfume. Tastes of intense hops. Lots of pine and fresh citrus. Has a resiny perfume like thrills gum flavour too. I donít get a whole lot of malt here, just a touch of tropical fruit sweetness. Really unbalanved, but enjoyable in small doses. Finishes sticky, slick. Good. sdriessen (320) - Dunedin, NEW ZEALAND - JAN 17, 2010
Aroma of oranges and lemons, and lots of hops. Thick scent of a caramelised sugar sort of malt.
Fruity, hoppy flavours followed by a heavy, full bodied (yet refreshing) malt. Very nice to drink, leaving a hoppy, fruity finish with a lasting bitterness. Thanks Donfardz64! yesyouam (1016) - Fairport, New York, USA - JAN 16, 2010
Rogue Yellow Snow IPA is a cloudy, bubbly, golden ale with a big, foamy, white head that has outstanding retention and lacing. It has a strong, hoppy aroma with notes of orange, wood and grass. It has a very smooth medium body with a quick, clean finish. Thereís a good amount of citrusy bitterness. The flavor is pretty much all coming from the hops. Itís just dry enough to leave you thirsty for another sip... Actually this is hard to sip. Itís a gulper. Thereís a long, bitter aftertaste that suggests grass and juniper. Itís both quenching and satisfying. CampesinoTino (800) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 15, 2010
UPDATED: FEB 13, 2010 Bomber. Pours a golden orange and honey color with thin head and a subtle, sweet floral hop aroma. First sip begins with medium hops followed by strong carbonation and then a light honey sweetness. It has a dry, bitter finish and a slightly sour, bitter aftertaste. While most IPAs have a dominant hop presence from start to finish, the hop presence in Yellow Snow comes and goes while itís the bitterness that establishes itself over everything else.

draft at uber tavern. Overly bitter in a way that keeps it refreshing. Loads of hops and creamy palate. kyzr (1527) - Montana, USA - JAN 15, 2010
Cloudy copper pour with big off-white head. Hoppy/citrus nose with hints of caramel. Flavor is very much citurs hoppy with nice tones of caramel that round out the edges. Medium body with a good punch of hops that finish you off. PilsnerPeter (3045) - Flushing, New York, USA - JAN 14, 2010
Tap at Fourth Ave Pub: Hazy deep orange/golden with a dense off white head. Clean Northwest U.S. hop aroma- crisp citruses with notes of grapefruit and orange. Has a crisp velvety body. Thereís a perfect malt background in the flavor and body to support the citrusy and resiny hops. Some grapefruit suggestions and a ton of bitterness that lingers. Dry, balanced and makes you thirty for more. A great session IPA. Fevernova (222) - Willoughby, Ohio, USA - JAN 13, 2010
22 oz Bottle -- Pours hazy burnt orange with a soapy off-white head. Aromas of caramel, piney hops, and some lemon. Tastes and smells like a bitter lemonade. Quite refreshing with a long bitter finish. Christian (13605) - Odense, DENMARK - JAN 11, 2010
As Jorgen Ale at Oliver Twist. Cloudy orange with a small white head. Strong orange-y citrus hop aroma with definate pacman yeast notes. Fine and smooth peach and caramel flavour. Malty sweet with a good bitter finish
