    Somewhat hazy golden with big lasting off-white lacing foam head. Aroma is barley, clearly hoppy. Nice taste, decent pale ale, nice bitter, some light fruit notes. (Arnhem 201407)

    Pretty good. Bright and sunny. No one could say this one was over junipered, no pickle flavor and distinct pale ale flavor. Might be a good session beer. Nothing I would try to sneak across the border, but definitely wouldn't turn down. A good party starter.

    An interesting attempt at a spiced ale using the juniper berry as the star. A hazed orange colour with almost no head......the spices are very prevalent in the aroma along with cereal malts. Flavour is herbal and earthy.

    It pours a solid golden with a thin white head and copious lacing. An aroma of fresh malts, hops, lemon/citrus, berries, bread, and spiciness. The mouthfeel is smooth, thick, and rich. Flavors of malts, hops, lemon and citrus, juniper, berries, bitterness and spiciness. Good!

    The description says that the recipe hasn't changed from Yellow Snow IPA... but I feel like the amarillo's we're added earlier, as it seems to be a bit bitter, but not so much on the aroma. Like I said for Yellow Snow, not ground breaking, but good, typical of rogue. Grapefruit and orange like any other stereotypical west coast IPA. Not so much lime, lemon or pine. Hop forward, with a fairly dry, biscuit like, malt profile. Enjoyable to drink. If the recipe is in fact different then the numbers on my review make no sense. Otherwise, it might be increased experience, but just not very impressed.

    12 fl. oz. bottle, courtesy of Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. ABV not declared on the bottle. Hazy pale golden colour, big white head. Sweetish aroma of pale malts with strong notes of honey, some fruity hops too. The juniper berries are not dominant. Fairly refreshing flavour, medium sweet, well hopped, the juniper berries are there but not dominant. They should have crushed the juniper berries instead of adding them whole. Okay, but not brilliant.

    Did I just miss the juniper? I was expecting - oh I don't know - something gin-like, perhaps Bombay Sapphire... I tried, but could never get the aroma or flavor of juniper. Citrusy hops, yes. Orange-ish color with a faint white head. OK, but unimpressive.

    Aromas of flowers, grass, and sweet malts, unusual but interesting. Hazy yellow body with a thin soapy head. Flavors were similar to the aroma with some hops poking through. Overall a nice beer thats worth a try, I agree with Jabah in that it seems to be a cross between an APA, and a pilsner.

    Got a free sample of this one just before thanksgiving because hey said it goes well with turkey. This had not much head on a very clear yellow liquid. Very interesting aftertaste of spicy hops. Super easy to drink. Light body, clean finish. I could drink a lot of this one.
