Rogue Yellow Snow IPA

Mon, 06/22/2015 - 17:38 -- Smitty

Poured out of a bomber right out of the fridge at about 38 degrees.

In the glass, this is a pretty standard looking IPA, although it is a bit cloudier than some. A light amber in color, and completely translucent. A thin head off the pour, that slowly grows into an off white head that was, at most, about one finger thick. The head did stick around for awhile, though, leaving some bubbles along the edges of the glass.

A bright and appealing nose (assuming that you like IPAs and their typical hop aromas). Hop aromas from the Amarillo hops are very strong on the grapefruit and orange/tangerine aromas as well as a light fruit aroma. A malty background aroma is nice and bready and also has a very slight caramel malt sweetness.
