Yellow Snow IPA

The Beer Stats:
  • Beer Name: Yellow Snow IPA
  • Brewery: Rogue Brewing Company (Oregon)
  • Style: American IPA
  • ABV: 6.2%
  • IBU: 70
  • Pour Color: Golden and hazy color to this one.

      It poured with a slight tinge of yellow in the head. A golden color on the pour. Very murky compared to a lot of IPAs. I imagine that it's the hop haze causing that cloudy murkiness. The head was big and fluffy for most of the beer. Spicy and grassy scents come off the top of the glass. The taste is a nice balance. The hops is a nice mix of flavors. It's spicy and citrus mix is really good. The bitter of the orange peel and grapefruit flavors lingers. The malts give it a nice mix of sweet and buttery flavor. A really savory IPA that some might not like. I found it to be delicious.
      This is a nicely done IPA. Not only bitter but long lasting taste.  You swallow and a few minutes later you're still tasting bitter peels. I could defiantly see me picking this up again and again cause you really can't get board of these flavors. Also you get the fun of telling your friends your going to drink yellow snow. All and all a great beer that this mustache loves!
