Rogue Ales Yellow Snow IPA

You may or may not have heard about the advice “don’t eat the yellow snow” well someone up at Rogue Ales in Newport Oregon made Yellow Snow IPA, 6.5% ABV with 82 IBUs. Yellow Snow IPA uses CaraFoam, Melanoidin, 2-Row & Rogue Farms Dare & Risk Malts; Amarillo Hops; Free Range Coastal Water and Pacman Yeast. Yellow Snow pours a golden yellow color with a three finger white head that leaves behind nice decent lacing that fades into chunky lacing. The aroma is hoppy with big earthy tones with slight pine essence. Yellow snow has a big IPA aroma to it. Taste is big with hoppy, fruity, earthy notes up front with earthy bitterness in the back with slight juicy fruits. The mouth feel is a full medium, this beer finishes with a bitterness that linger just enough for you to really taste the bitterness. The aftertaste is hoppy and sticky with a bit of a fruity note. This is a well brewed bitter IPA and Yellow Snow deserves a B. Solidly brewed and almost well balance but falls just half an inch short of being perfectly balanced. It just needs a little more malt’s to be perfect. I would recommend having Rogue Ales Yellow Snow IPA. Cheers Please enjoy responsibly!
