Rogue Ales Yellow Snow IPA

Pour: Frothy off-white bubbly head, orange-reddish body, very hazy, very inviting.

Nose: very citrusy, tangy and fresh. Grapefruit, lemon, orange, very sweet and malty.

Palate: Punchy, substantial. Very hoppy, right from the start. Malt at the end. Lasting and pronounced bitter aftertaste, dry too, but not overpowering. As the beer warms, the malt character comes through a little bit more.

You must love hops to love this. Which I do. The beer treads the edges of aggressive bitterness but never falls into the unpleasant hole. Reminds me of the Dogfish Head 60 Minute IPA, which is itself indicative of which beer I prefer. Very good, solid, bold IPA.
