Rogue "Yellow Snow IPA"
Rogue Ales - Newport, Oregon USA
IPA (ABV 6.2%) (IBU 70)

[Best served in a Shaker glass]

Rating: 2.8/5.0

Aroma: 5/10
Appearance: 4/5
Taste: 5/10
Palate: 3/5
Overall: 10/20

The pour was a hazy medium orange with a large (2-3 finger) off white rocky head that lasted throughout and produced some good streaky lacing.

The aroma was kind of mild of floral and pine hops, a straw malt and a mild earthy cobweb yeast with a hint of caramel and citrus (lemon peel and orange peel).

The taste was moderately bitter with an ever so slight trace of caramel at first, and then very quickly became extremely bitter with a huge dose of a harsh bitter citrus peel at the end. The flavor hung around longer that I would have liked being mostly of a harsh bitter citrus peel taste and not much else.

Mouthfeel was just above light in body with an extremely dry texture and an almost prickly carbonation.

Overall an IPA that was just a bit harsher that I would have liked, to much citrus peel taste for my liking...
