Beer Review #62: Rogue Yellow Snow IPA


STYLE
: India Pale Ale

ABV: 6.2%

PURCHASED AT: Family Beer and Liquor, East Dubuque, IL

I would consider Rogue Ales one of the better breweries in America. They produce a few beers I would consider to be in my “Top 10” list and they also can be ballsy with some of the beers they produce. Their Yellow Snow IPA is terrific take on the hugely popular style of India Pale Ale.  Like most IPAs you get the fruity citrus aromas from the hops that goes along with a little bit of bitterness. I would think this IPA is more sessionable than others because of its ABV and it is a very tasty beer to sit and drink. I purchased this at Family Beer and Liquor in East Dubuque which had a huge selection of Rogue products, so if you are in the area check it out.
An excellent beer as Rogue continues to shine.
REVIEW
Pour: Sunny gold pour with a really thick white head. Huge amounts of lacing on the glass.
Aroma: Your typical citrus/grapefruit with a touch of grassy smell.
Taste: Nice hop bitterness with the citrus flavor.
Overall: B+

Eastern Iowa Residents: Purchased at Family Beer and Liquor and I’ve also seen it at John’s Grocery in Iowa City on occasion.
Would I Buy Again?: You bet, it is sold in a bomber for about $7.99 each. A little pricey but well worth it.

Let me know if you try this and what your thoughts are!!
