COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Above and beyond an India Pale Ale--I2PA is radically hopped with an intense aroma and hop bitterness. Unfiltered and aged for 9 months before it leaves the brewery--not for the faint of heart. I2PA is brewed with two-row Pipkin Pale malts, Saaz, Cascade and Northwest Golding hops.

Hoppy, but without the over-assertive grapefruit flavor. Nice sweet malt backbone. Well balanced for an I2PA.

jsquire (3561) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - MAR 25, 2003
Murky orange out of the bottle with thin, tight head and syrupy sweet nose with hints of hops. Huge beer with tons of hop flavor. Almost pinching grapefruit bitterness. Very thick mouthfeel.

This works! Heavier on the alcohol than it tastes. Good over the top hops. Lovely floral notes. Golden orange in color. Packs a hoopy punch!

JasonG (776) - Salt Lake City, Utah, USA - MAR 19, 2003
Nice thick white head sits atop a pale yellow color. Aroma has big strong hops, floral notes. Flavor is ultra super hoppy, possibly the hoppiest beer I've ever had (maybe even more than ruination). Hops are throughout the flavor, with an extremely bitter finish, hardly even a hint of malt. Not a well balanced flavor, but still very very good. A bold IPA.

muzzlehatch (4424) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - MAR 11, 2003
Bright pinkish-orange, virtually no head. Excellent nose, grapefruity and sharp but with a strong caramel malt undertone. Flavor profile has malt upfront competing with the powerful citrusy Northwest hops, but losing fairly quickly. It's good, it's drinkable, it has somewhat better balance than many Rogues, but its still too bitter and hard for me at the end. Guess I'm still something of a hop weenie.

jpfrog (130) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - MAR 9, 2003
Creamy/frothy head that melts down after about 4 or 5 minutes. Looks like a hefeweizen. It is golden orange in color with a fair amount of yeast action on the bottom and small particle floating throughout. Smells very citrusy like a perfect orange. Hops hops and more hops in the flavor palate and everything else. Actually kind of bitter. This could have used a slight more amount of malts to balance it out better.

Verne (263) - Enumclaw, Washington, USA - MAR 3, 2003
UPDATED: APR 7, 2004 Clear amber, no real head but a nice short lived lacing. Big nose with the strong aroma of noble hops its good to see that some brewers have not forgotten that not all hop are from Yakima {Cascades} Dry with strong hop bitterness the label describes it perfectly “IPA Squared” Re-rate had this on tap wow better still

Ida7999 (105) - Milford, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 22, 2003
- cloudy, orange/amber color, short white head, some Brussels Lace, hop aroma mixed with a light malt background, decent aroma but nothing spectacular; flavor of straight hops – WOW!, extreme hop bitterness – flowery array of hops, malt background is barely noticed, slight taste of alcohol is also present, smooth appetizing texture, what a beer!

Awesome. Big hop presence all around. Incredibly well balanced, appropriatly for the style. This was as good as the Stone IPA. Rogue never ceases to amaze me.
