This beer was brewed for the 2002 Winter Olympics in Utah and is no longer made, so I feel fortunate to have found this bottle still on the shelf in September of '06. The 22 oz. brown bottle depicts a goggled man holding up a defiant fist with one hand, and holding his dog in the other and declaring "together we can do it". What that has to do with yellow snow I don't know, but I always enjoy the etched into the bottle artistry of all Rogue bottles. On the side of the bottle they list the 10 ingredients the beer is made with along with some other information, but no freshness date and no mention of the alcohol content.

The beer poured a nice peach/orange color and made a two-finger head with white fluffy foam that lasted awhile before retreating down the glass. It also left nice lacing on the glass after each sip.

The smell was a really powerful dose of floral hops coming from the combination of both Amarillo and Golding hops. I really enjoyed the aroma from this beer. There was no other smell that I could pick out so I was expecting a really hoppy beer.

As expected, the hops were the domonent taste, but the combination of 4 different malts mixed with whole juniper berries added a nice balance to the beer.

The carbonation is fairly low giving the beer a moderately creamy and mid to full bodied character. The malt flavors disappear at the end and the beer has a dry, spicy, and a bit alcoholic finish with the juniper berries dominating at the end.

This is a really good pale ale with plenty of character. Too bad it is no longer being made.

12oz bottle.

Appearance: Nice golden color, slightly hazy

Smell: Relatively strong - herbal, sweet.

Taste: Pleasantly bitter, with a strong flavor of (what I think) is the juniper. Remains complex throughout.

Overall: An interesting beer - I was not impressed at first but the tasted definitely grew on me.
