You do come up with some interesting varieties. I hadn't heard of this one before, and had to look it up. No doubt Moore was hoping for a striped variety, but came up with this lovely surprise.
Is the color as fleeting as in 'Golden Angel'?

Not that it's a horrible thing (fading) as very few don't, but if you're looking for strong, stable yellow, this likely isn't it. So, repeat the cross but use Golden Angel's offspring, Golden Horizon, instead. It's triploid, so it gives some rather interesting results like Golden Angel does and it (and its seedlings) don't fade quite as severely as Golden Angel and its offspring. It seems a bit less likely to black spot, too, so it appears to have also picked up a bit of disease resistance from Strawberry Ice. Nice rose.
