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.

fraternie (814) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 18, 2001
UPDATED: JUN 7, 2010 Decent but not overwhelmingly flavorful inital malt followed by a barrage of bitterness. A little too hoppy and overall disappointing for this brewery. Re-rate 3/16/03: Had out of the bottle and seemed a little better balanced--some nice malty caramel flavors as well as some fruitiness. Very hoppy still. Re-rate 6/1/10: Sweet with golden apple, grapefruit and pear citrus, floral and aromatic, leading into a crisp hop backbone. Abv covered well, a bit metallic.

Shadallion (534) - Sacramento, California, USA - JUN 13, 2001
Good-tasting ale, but not what Id call a huge IPA. Ive had some special IPAs that have way more of everything: hops, malt and alcohol. Just not very exciting.

Oakes (12234) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 30, 2000
UPDATED: FEB 17, 2008 This was a re-rate a long time coming. Golden colour with particular matter suspended. Aroma hints of lemongrass, orange and a bit of wood. Moderately bitter body with light citrus and rich pale malts.

Like the Old Crustacean Barleywine, this comes in a little 6 - 7 ounce bottle. This beer is smooth, strong, and assertively hopped, to say the least. Very concentrated beverage with high alcohol content. Frothy head retains well. Intense, long-lasting hops... linger in the mouth-piney, finishes with a ting. If you dont like bitter beers, stay away from this one. I enjoyed it though. It was almost like a light-malted barleywine.
