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.

Draft;extremly hoppy aroma, stong sensatons of pine, fresh grass cuttings, & grapefruit, flavors abound in this well balanced and hoppy IPA.very floral,Flared colors of orange dominate. Top notch IPA here,I spent a Night drinking Three Floyds Dreadnaught IPA and this is no match against the King,but still a quality IPA, Hoppy, drinkable, and enjoyable, High IBU’s here , complex & recommended.

UPDATED: AUG 5, 2004 Draft, aged one year: Huge pineapple and kind nugget aroma with mildd chardonnay grape, pine sap, sweet pale malt, and caramel. The interplay of pine, caramel, and pineapples is shockling! Flavors of blueberries and flowers. Perfectly numbing to the palate and a very balanced bitterness. Mellow, soft body. (10, 4, 9, 5, 19) The draft version is like light and day in comparison to the bottled countepart. (2002, 12 oz.) The aroma evenly distributes wonderful notes of barnyarrd malt goodness. The foam is very rocky with dense creaminess and attractive stickiness. All afloat an orange color. The hops are very round here, which led me to believe the bittereness was going to be subdued...wrong I was. Gummed candy is quite evident as beer reaches room temp. Very dry. Lingering grapefruit rind bitterness and crisp pale malt. Far too brash and unidimensional, not to mention, extremely sloppy. (6, 3, 5, 3, 10)

Almost Crayola orange with lively carbonation bubbles rising from the yeast junk at the bottom. Big, thick, off-white head. Nose is slightly bready, mostly citrusy and grassy hops. The malts are nice and sweet at the start, but quickly give way to the big crispy hops. slightly acidic end. Big hop burps. Nothing seems to grow with warmth, which is too bad. A little more maltiness would make this a classic!

Re-Rate 10/10/02: Clear as a bell, amber in color, the head Bunyanesque, beige, the lace is in lusty sheets, that last to the hop bitter end. Nose is lightly sweet, floral tones, citrus, ’Sniffable’. Front is glutinously sweet, the top light, the finish is heroically hopped, unassumingly acidic. Decent IPA, a middle of the road American IPA, which is nothing to ’Sneeze’ at. Ranks a respectable #437 on my current 1000 beer list.

Nice beer for sure. I love the bold hoppy taste. Many would find it too strong I fear but for those who like IPA’s it is worth drinking. Small head with little carbonation. Nice blend of malt but the dominate taste is the bold and wonderfull hopps with no cloying sweetness. A lasting finish as well. This beer will be on my repurchase list.

Hoppy! (But what Rogue isn’t) Dark Orange, suspended particle appearance - clean spicy, fresh aroma. Flavor - reminds me of grapefruit juice. Strong finish - let’s you remember what you just drank. Worth the high price tag - but be careful - this one will bite you!

This may not make sense but it tastes so bitter and so dry that it actually tastes really sweet and makes your mouth water for more. Nice wholesome IPA

Very bitter, shocks the tongue on the first swig. Hints of butterscotch because of the hop intensity. Bitter overload giving a sweetness afterward. Funky!

Bam, hops in your face! Cloudy orange in color with plenty of floaties and a medium sized head. Pungeant hop dominated aroma makes my mouth water. 10% alcohol you say? Well, it is very well hidden beneath layers of resiny, earthy, citric hops and generous amounts of malt to match. A hophead’s delight and not for the faint of heart. Had this at a wedding and a couple folks asked me what it was. My description must’ve been good because they each went to the bar and approriately poured the beer from the bottle into a glass. They promptly puckered up and gagged. None of them finished the beer :-(. Hey, I told them it wasn’t for the faint of heart!

The cascade hops are very obvious as soon as you open this bottle. Deep amber hue with very little carbonation. No head retention but who needs it with and IPA? Very hoppy nose but not overhopped on the palate, quite enjoyable actually. I would have to recommend this one to anyone who is not a West Coast IPA fan. Could have used a bit more malty texture and afterwash is mildly bitter.
