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.

This beer is not in front of me right now but I have had this several times, the first being back in 1999 long before I would ever see another imperial IPA. A very unique hop profile with the refreshing quench of the saaz and the cascade pine and earthy EKG, well balanced malt backbone. The recipe may have changed since the commercial listing but I remember that formula well as it was the first beer I tried to copy in a homebrew recipe to achieve those hop flavors. Very unique from what west coast IPA hop profiles are like.

ARH (707) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 21, 2014
On tap, poured into a goblet. Aromas of resin, grass, and citrus greet the nose, along with a touch of bread crust and honey. It’s a clear, effervescent, oily orange yellow beer topped by a soapy, medium thin ring and wispy surface. A light lace is left aling the glass. The taste is a rather well balanced medium high bitter and sweet. It’s full bodied with fizzy carbonation. The texture is viscous and contains flavors of citrus (in abundance), moderate pine, bread crust, honey, with mild spicy pine finish. The spice is a bit stronger in the aftertaste and has a somewhat burnt note to it.

"this is a big and chewy imperial ipa...wish they didn’t switch to ceramic bottles at $12 a pop. oh well. a little bitter, and less floral/aromatic than i like, but still a good beer. nice biscuity malty backbone. just not a good value."

The beer pours to a cloudy copper color with very little head. The aroma has a floral resin scent to it with a background alcohol flavor. The taste is medium body with a good amount of bitterness on the finish. Overall a good DIPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

It poured a hazy golden/brown color with an off-white head. The aroma was of resinous citrus and piney hops, with a boozy caramel malt backbone. The taste was similar with lots of booze and malts, and still plenty of hops. Nice.

AKA Rogue I2(squared)PA. Imperial India (double I) Pale Ale. First rated January 24th, 2014.
Earlier Rating: 1/26/2014 Total Score: 4.7
An I2PA (aka, Imperial India Pale Ale). This one is packed full of delicious hop flavor, and a ton of alcohol by volume. Definitely one of Rogue’s best. Highly recommended.

Jimthechap (1885) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - SEP 6, 2014
Tasted from the 750ml XS bottle. Seems golden amber in colour that starts clear and gets progressively cloudier as you get further through the bottle.There is a temporary white head and some evident carbonation. Aromas of rich fruitiness are apparent and some resinous Pacific NW hops. There is gentle carbonation in the mouth and then a blast of tart resinous bitterness that showcases the nectarine, peach and apricot of the hopping and malt combination. This carries on and gets more and more bitter, making the finish a lengthy affair that is still bringing me those sour orchard flavours more than half an hour after consumption... ...which I like.

A great double IPA. Pours am attractive orange with wonderful lacing. Aromas are very malty. So are the flavors. Caramel and resin. Nice.

Plenty of hops, notably cascade with pine/citrus bitterness. A smooth, sweetish malt.

Keg @El Lúpulo Feroz, Oviedo. 01-01-2014.
In short: watery IPA.
Pours clear golden, with some white head, poor lacing. Caramel, alcohol, herbal aromas. Medium body, soft to average carbonation, crispy texture. Taste is mild bitter, herbal, some caramel. A bit watery, tasteless and disgusting finish.
