Appearance: The stuff really is the color of yellow snow. If piss was carbonated, I'd have half a mind to think I was handed a glass from someone playing a dirty joke on me. Someone rather dehydrated, that is. There is a decent head and ample clingy lacing.
Smell: Aroma is very hop-dominant.
Taste: Hoppy and bitter, but more in an APA way than an IPA way, if that makes any sense. The waitress described this as a less hoppy IPA. I'd say it's more just a differently hopped IPA. There's no doubt the beer is quite bitter, but not as much as you might expect, especially since I find almost all Rogue beers to be pretty bitter. There is a juiciness and flavor to the hops that nicely balance the bitterness.
Mouthfeel: Not a lot to say. Body is on the lighter side with moderate carbonation.
Drinkability: Good drinkability for an IPA. Despite the bitterness, I could have a couple.
Notes: The name for this beer is quite apt. Somehow it manages to actually taste like you would think yellow snow would taste, but it a good way! Confused? Try it and you'll see!
Serving type: on-tap
