Throwback Thursday: Rogue Ales Yellow Snow IPA

Originally posted December 11th, 2016


There is an old saying “don’t eat the yellow snow”  someone at Rogue Ales in Newport Oregon made Yellow Snow IPA, 6.5% ABV with 82 IBUs. Yellow Snow IPA is brewed with 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 upfront with earthy bitterness in the back with slight juicy fruits. The mouthfeel is a full medium, this beer finishes with a bitterness that lingers 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!
