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.

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.

Cloudy orange color, creamy white head, small yeasties. Fruity aroma. Spicy cascade hops, nice clean, smooth aftertaste for an IPA.

AceOfHearts (1374) - 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...

UPDATED: APR 5, 2004 This brew just went form one of my lowest rated beers to one of my highest. I guess that goes to show what a little experience will do for ya. This Imperial IPA pours with an orange amber body topped by a very thick off white head with lots of lacing. The aroma is sweet, grapefruity and hoppy with slight piney notes and nice mango notes. Just incredible. The flavor is sweet, malty and fruity (mango) with a strong piney hoppiness and some grapefruit. Full bodied and smooth yet tingly on the tongue.
