General Thoughts:
Yellow Snow IPA is a really interesting beer. This beer starts off with a slightly sweet taste with a hint of citrus, which then moves quickly to a bitter taste that fills your mouth and gets the taste buds on the side of your tongue going. Finally this beer ends with a metallic after taste. This is a refreshing beer, smooth in texture with very little carbonation. There is one thing about this beer that I don't enjoy and that is the Metallic after taste. I am very keen on beers that are bitter on the after taste as it leaves you wanting more, however this beer leaves a kind of metal taste that to me is unpleasant. Apart from this negative I think this is a nice flavoured beer, with a refreshing pleasant start, which ends on the metallic notes. In terms of IPA's it isn't one of my favourites, but on the whole a nice beer.
