Rogue Yellow Snow, the brewery’s seasonal India pale ale, has been canned for the first time.

So many breweries across the industry are switching to cans. Rogue Brewing’s President Brett Joyce tells Beer Street Journal in a recent visit that basically, the expansion to cans was no-brainer. You’ve heard all the justifications for cans. Cans go everywhere. Rogue Yellow Snow is the first of a few releases you’ll see from Rogue.

Joyce and his team opted to to use a mobile canner to start the canning process. They are actively seeking the right permanent equipment. The first 16 ounce cans of the tried and true IPA started shipping nationally just after Halloween.

The pale-golden-hued ale features a hoppy, tropical-fruit-forward aroma complemented by a medium body and hoppyness mid-palate.

Rogue Yellow Snow is brewed with hops and malts from their own farm. Available in new 16 ounce cans, 12 ounce bottles, 22 ounce bottles, 64 ounce growlers throughout the winter season.
