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.

UPDATED: JAN 8, 2004 rerate-not changing the rating, but i would just like to add that i sampled this brew on tap at the map room in chicago on new years. Ohh, i forgot to add that the beer was free :) Wonderful-12oz bottle cost me 3 bucks, but it was well worth it-orange hue, opaque with tons of bouncing bubbles at pour-citrus aroma with hops to boot!!! great tasting and very refreshing, even when it warms a little-pure excellece

Cask conditioned. Served cool, not cold. Smooth creamy mouthfeel, excellent flavor and nice hop bitterness.

Kathy (241) - Washington DC, USA - AUG 21, 2002
Unfiltered cider color and a deep, rich alcohol appearance (it has some alcohol viscosity). Very strong, sweet alcohol flavor that’s very cordial-like. There are definitely hops in the sweetness, but the richness and bitterness is all alcohol. It finishes hoppy-bitter, but still the alcohol is there. A beer I deeply respect, but would not drink a lot of.

Cloudy orange. Nice fruity, perfumy aroma, with hints of alcohol. Very big hop bite to the finish.

Tom Servo (424) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - AUG 6, 2002
A real winner. Much smoother than advertised, without a lot of bitterness. Has an almost fruity quality to it.

Andrew196 (1091) - Katy, Texas, USA - AUG 5, 2002
Cloudy orange color, creamy white head, small yeasties. Fruity aroma. Spicy cascade hops, nice clean, smooth aftertaste for an IPA.

AceOfHearts (1375) - Mountain View, California, USA - AUG 5, 2002
Amber and clear, average head, some yeasties floating around and effervescence. The hops come out and really tug at your nose hairs with some strong crispness. Nice flavor, but the mouthfeel is a little bit slippery, not quite matching th crispness of the taste...but this is about the only drawback. Another winner from Rogue!!

Not quite as bitter as i was expecting from the name, but still a good beer. Great Cascade aroma and wonderfully balanced hop flavour with a decent bite.

A beautiful cloudy golden color with plenty of sediment and a thin, persistent head. Some sweetness in the aroma to accompany the citrus/hops. Again hops dominate the flavor with just a bit of malt coming through. The finish is amazingly bitter and long. I guess I was expecting more bitterness, but I thought this was great in that area. I need more bitterness, bring on Stone...
