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. There’s a good amount of citrusy bitterness. The flavor is pretty much all coming from the hops. It’s just dry enough to leave you thirsty for another sip... Actually this is hard to sip. It’s a gulper. There’s a long, bitter aftertaste that suggests grass and juniper. It’s 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 it’s the bitterness that establishes itself over everything else. carruthm (1401) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 15, 2010
draft at uber tavern. Overly bitter in a way that keeps it refreshing. Loads of hops and creamy palate. kyzr (1593) - 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 (3050) - 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. There’s 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.

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 (13805) - 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 savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - JAN 9, 2010
On tap @ Rogue Alehouse in the Portland Airport. Pours a clear golden with a white head. Big aroma of citrus, grass, pine and perfume hops. Flavor is very bitter with some light caramel malt sweetness. Medium to light body with average carbonation and a dry finish. A nice IPA, it probably tasted better than it should have because I was craving an IPA really bad. Had this on my return trip from Mexico where all there was to drink were pale lagers. bvc (1242) - Washington, USA - JAN 9, 2010
Draft at Uber. Chill hazed light golden with foamy white head that leaves some lacing. Lots of cracker lemon citrus on the nose with some onion summit hops. Sweet faint citrus hops with husky grassy grain. Carbonation is a little high. Respectable and would drink again when faced with limited options, but nothing I would seek out. milewide (2304) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - JAN 9, 2010
Does look like cloudy pee! Modest aroma. Taste is mostly bitter, with little fruit taste. After-taste is very bitter, as they brag.
