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.

Wonderful IPA, deep copper/amber color, intense floral aromas, loaded with hops, bitter and flavorful a hopheads dream, good kick, set the standard for many NW IPAs, perfectly crafted ale!

Autumn orange-peach color with brisk carbonation. This beer has a zippy, pungent, tangy hop aroma and taste. The beer is saturated with hoppiness as to numb the mouth. This beer does lack the metallic aftertaste of many strong IPA’s. Extremely hoppy, and semi-strong--making a good IPA.

Davhgbrew (945) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAY 13, 2002
Huge floral hop aroma, dark orange w/ a large foamy white head. Whoa!! that is hoppy, but kind of watery on the palate which DFH’s wasn’t, which is now sets my standards for IPA’s. Nice dry, hoppy finish, with a hint of grapefruit and lime. A damn fine IPA, but 4.25$ for a 12oz bottle..c’mon.

UPDATED: DEC 21, 2003 WOW!!! I imagine that this is what a real IPA tasted like when it arrived in India... Amazing hop bitterness along with a wondeful combo of Cascade & Kent hops with a touch of Saaz. Not for the faint of heart... Only a true lover of IPA will appreciate this great beer. So, to paraphrase the Arogant Bastard... you might as well drink Bud because you won't be able to appreciate the greatness of the I2PA...

ravidesai (947) - Bombay, INDIA - APR 25, 2002
good well crafted IPA. copper colour, frothy head. floral nose with a pungent biting hoppy taste. while an overall good beer it was not as assertive as I expected for a Rogue IPA.

Suttree (5224) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - APR 1, 2002
Good, not great. Obviously very hoppy, but somehow lacking. Though similiar, I actually like Brutal Bitter much better.

jcalbi (378) - New Jersey, USA - APR 1, 2002
Beautiful copper color with a lovely and invitingly sweet aroma. Full malty body with a hop betterness that slowly creeps up on you from behind( or as my lovely wife put it’regurgitatedly bitter taste!’). Hey, I loved it.

I was expecting much better from Rogue, so was a little disapointed. But a decent IPA

Really strong for an IPA, but I could drink it on occasion.
