Sure is yellow. Pretty lacing already.

No freshness date but it sure is bitter. Juicy fruit and citrus in the nose.

Sharp bite initially with a crispness. Lemon and pine really push through from the hops. Finishes dry and really coats the tongue with a resinous bitterness. This only makes my tastebuds crave Another sip. Good doughy character from the light malt bill.

This is a pleasant change of pace from most winter beers. Easy drinking IPA that I would seek out again.

A - Clear gold body, thick white head, never completely fades and leaves very heavy lacing.
S - Flower hops, biscuit with light toast.
T - Grassy, earthy hops, solid malt backbone, slightly atsringent aftertaste.
M - Medium/thick body, medium carb. Very smooth/oily as a result it lingers on the palate.
O - A good IPA for the winter. The heavy body makes it more suitable for colder weather. Try it out.

BY THE WAY: This is a single hopped beer with Amarillo only.

Appearance: Yellow, straw like color with a light gold hue. Nice big white frothy head. Tight bubbles.

Aroma: With all the grape-fruit, citrus bombs out there, this beer provided a very pleasant and different aroma. Full of lemon grass, pine, fruit, and sweet malt. The aroma is not as heavy as its competitors but different enough to win in the category of uniqueness.

Taste: You get that lemon grass bitterness and citrus in the taste. But the malt is there to keep things balanced. The house pacman yeast provides an unusually pleasant yeast like flavor that comes in the form of lightly cooked biscuits and bread.

Mouth-feel: light-med

Aftertaste: yes dry but not causing you to down a gallon of water. Like I have been saying, very pleasant.

Overall: This is a great beer brewed without the need of harmful chemicals or preservatives that other brewers use( to me thats a plus ). I highly recommend this beer not because its an OUTSTANDING beer with 100 IBUs and 10%ABV, NO, its just a really good damn beer!

Rogue Yellow Snow IPA has a medium, off-white head, a murky, yellow-orange-gold appearance, nice lacing, and noticeable bubble streams. Aroma is of lightly-roasted malt, light fruit, and unusual yeast. Taste is of straightforward, but not citrus-grapefruit-pineapple, bitterness, sweetness, yeast, and white bread. Mouthfeel is medium, and Rogue Yellow Snow IPA finishes not so dry, and pleasant.
