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.

Indra (2656) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - DEC 9, 2002
UPDATED: JAN 16, 2006 Aroma of citrusy, spicy, lightly piney, resinous hop and some lightly toasted, sweet malt, with just a bit of yeastiness (bottle conditioned). Cloudy dark golden-orange in color, with a creamy, off-white head and fine carbonation. Flavor leads off with a bit of fruity, sweet, toasted malt and citrusy, spicy, embiggened hop flavors, which give the beer its profile, and all the way to the very tip of the aftertaste they’re here in abundance. Mouthfeel is smooth and creamy, lightly effervescent, and the body is medium-to-full. Just enough malt here to keep the aggressive clamor of the hops in check. This is Rogue doing what they do best. Not sure if the recipe is changed or what, but my bottle says this is made with Maris Otter Pale malt.

DrunkAsASkunk (847) - Lynnwood, Washington, USA - DEC 7, 2002
This was the biggest surprise of all the new samples this weekend at the Strong Ale Festival. The aroma was hands down one of my favorites....HOPS HOPS EVERYWHERE!!!!! Piney...citrusy...come one come all kind of HOPS! It poured a nice amber/copper mix with a good head which stuck around for a bit and left a creamy feeling in the mouth. The taste was soooooo incredibly smooth, with the hops, and the florals mixing in so well with the carbonation, that this had me screaming for more. Very smooth, not too dry finish, an impressive surprise.

kmeves (1098) - Mount Pleasant, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 4, 2002
Hops abundant! Pour produces a frothy grey head that quickly dissipates. Color is a wonderful cloudy amber/blond. Aroma is overwhelmingly hop with small traces of citrus. The flavor of this beer is not as overwhelmingly hoppy as the nose would suggest but instead offset by a hint of two-row malt. Finish is very sweet.

belgianhomebrew (646) - Acworth, Georgia, USA - DEC 1, 2002
Nice amber, golden color. Good head retention. Slight malt aroma. As you sip the beer, the hops hit you from start to finish. A true hop lovers brew.

rmalloy (199) - los angeles, California, USA - NOV 24, 2002
Not radically hopped, like the commercial description says. Average hopping. Less floral and fruity aromas than typical in better IPAs. Yummy honey sweetness and balanced hops. Good but not great.

PhillyBeer2112 (2544) - Oviedo, Florida, USA - NOV 26, 2002
UPDATED: APR 1, 2004 Dull amber color, with a full dense head. Strong resiny and citric hop aroma. Some grapefruit and pine presence. Strongly hopped flavor: more citrus and pine. Balanced but definitely strong bitter finish.

Now that’s what i call hops. though labeled an American strong ale here. I2PA definately fit’s, The floral earthy aroma is EXACTLY how i like IPA’s and this is up there on the list of best IPA"s ive ever had. I want more and will definately go get some.

JahNoth (1039) - Rochester, New York, USA - DEC 12, 2002
Stong pine and citrus aroma. Looks very beautiful in my pint glass. Extremely hoppy flavor without residual bitterness. An impresive and tasty Imperial India Pale Ale.
