22oz bottle, Boulevard tulip, and I suppose it's the 2012 version.
Light apricot yellow, pretty hazy, with a very nice eggshell head that has lots of large bubbles. The head is really a winner; large patches of lacing and excellent retention.
Moderate-strong hop aroma; dried apricots, white peach, a bit soapy, peach rings, a little clean, sharp yeast, and sweet light malt.
Pronounced dank, rank bitterness on the mid-tongue and roof of the mouth. Pale malt, but not too sweet; hops play as mostly that proud bitterness with echos of the stone fruit flavors. It's a great sharp bitterness, but I would appreciate a little more of a fruity explosion.
I think it's creamy. I see at least one previous reviewer thought it was over carbonated, but my bottle isn't. It has that balance between medium body and a healthy carbonation that slaps the bitterness solidly onto one's tongue.
Yellow Snow is a good hop hound's IPA and one of the better Rogue beers I've had. It looks really good and to me seems like it should be in six packs as opposed to bombers.
