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.

very hazy copper with a dense thick creamy egg shell white head...lasting too! aroma is pure nectar of cascade hops with just enough malt presence. flavor has a wonderful bitterness to it..the pine is there, very strong citrus presence with a VERY bitter finish. awesome, even better than id hoped!

More later, but I can say that this is amazing! I am so glad it doesnt use typical west coast cops. Delicious. Mouthfeel perfect, creamy.

UPDATED: JUL 19, 2003 (Re-rate) 12 oz bottle, year unknown(probaly new). Slightly hazy, amber/orange color. Thin creamy head and lace. Nose of pure hoppy goodness. Floral, citrusy and sappy. Sweet malt overtones detected as well. Medium bodied, sweet sugary malt shows itself first, hops take over in a brutal fashion but not excessively because the malt is the again to beat em down. The sweetness is divine, hard to tell if its the hops or the malt at times because of the sweet nuances. Pine sappy taste sticks with you for a long time. Seems pretty strong, I wonder what alc% is. Awesome IPA.

Hop juice aroma. Quite pale golden. Nice maltiness, felt rather than tasted. Enough body to pull off the generous hopping. I like the spiciness of the saaz in this beer, as saaz hops are not commonly used in ipas. Quite tasty.

Hazy orange amber hue. Big off white head. Sweet, floral, citrus nose. Big malt backbone, sweet first, medium bodied, giant hoppiness, citrus acidity, resinous, pine needles, oh so nice. Long lingering bitter finish. Beautiful brew, thank goodness these come in 12 ouncers now, yee haw.

UPDATED: MAR 3, 2004 Pours a light amber/orange with a thick white head. Smells of honey, yeast and pine. Very flavorful with a lingering bitterness.

Pours with a wonderful head. The hop aroma is strong and powerful. Alcohol and hops! Early sweetness, palatable bitterness in finish. I like the use of Cascade hops with the GOldings and Czech Saaz. Interesting hop profile, definitely something a little different. Piney, very bitter, little/subdued citrus. Pear, fruit in the aftertaste. Good malt presence to support the liberal hop usage.

I did not know they were growing grapefruit in Oregon. the strong hop nose is there as you pop the cap. I found it fuller than other IPAs. While not a fan of IPAs I thought this one was very true to the American type. I would recomend to hop heads.
