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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

8/15/02: 2000 Edition Experienced in 2002...Floaters galore..swirling within a glowing orangeness, and enclosed in thin white froth...Hoppy..yet fruity..yet bodacious grapefruit aroma...mellow mouthful..hops have matured over the years, but iím sure they were once big and bold..and are still there forcefully..hops completely balanced by the sweet-like malts..a tad creamy with mellow grapefruit noted and alcohol spurts Re-Rate 10/16/02 I think this one was younger because not only was it in the newer 12 oz bottle, the hops were there in full force..lots of grapefruit bitterness and citrus flavor..nicely balanced...Good stuff..must up the points

Tons of fruite in the nose wiuth an oily head and slightly hazy amber body. First sip embraces the mouth in fruit and hops. Some how manages to stay nice and round and not too drying. Spikes of spiced dark fruit and alcohol caome out to play as well as a pronounced malt backbone that lends a light cookie taste. Finishes with nuts, grain, juniper, slight white pepper and alcohol.

Big fruity aroma of hops that reminds me of Fruit Loops breakfast cereal. Pours a deep amber color with a nice off white head. Full bodied, starts of malty sweet but finishes long and bitter. Another great, intensely hopped IPA from out west, and another fine Rogue ale.

Well, I was expecting something along the lines of the Bastard, but this is a relatively tame, sophisticated hops attack. Itís really a beer of two minds - in the front of the mouth itís round, fruity (peaches and grapes), but still hearty stuff. As it heads back, though, the rush of kaleidoscopic hop varieties dances lustily with, and eventually overcomes those intiial tastes. An experience to drink - I like it better than most other rogues. I drank this from a full sized bottle so you folks who had the little guys were robbed ...

Nurse, hook me up with an I.V. of this stat. A wonderful beer. A balanced act of malt and hops that give this beer a high drinkability factor. Tastes of pine/spruce come through along with the hop bite most IPAís have, but it is subdued to the point where it teases you into thinking the hops will be strong, then settles into a easy swallow. Can this brewery make a bad beer? I donít think so. Very, very, very good beer.

UPDATED: MAY 13, 2003 Cloudy and unfiltered, gold/amber. Poured with a huge sediment flecked head. Although the hops were strong (74 ibu), the main flavor I got was the thick sweeeeet malt. I'm not sure if this one's properly balanced or not, i guess that's up to the individual tongue. Turned out to be just above average for an ipa.
