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.

No retention and zero lacing. Smells of sweet malt and hops. A little sweet and sour on the tongue, followed by some hoppy bitterness. Long lasting bitterness in the end. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle (nice) - dark gold with slim white head. Aroma of citrus hops, pine, honey maybe. Excellent taste - citrus hops mainly, with touch of floral, nicely dry, good malt backbone. Medium to full bodied, softly carbonated. Nice long bitter finish, touch of late warming alcohol. An excellent DIPA.

Bottle shared @ home from Saveur-Biere.com - Color: hazy dark blond beer with no carbonation and small white foam. Smell: resin and hoppy domination with grassy finish. Taste: hoppy taste and resin notes. Woody taste and alcohol finish. Aftertaste: resin and caramel with alcohol notes. Maybe it was to late to drink this beer....

On tap at Dexters, pours a hazy dark amber orange with a thin white head and some lacing in the glass, the aroma is of heavy citrus and hop resin with a pine touch as well, the flavor has a nice citrus front end with a pine and hop like finish, smooth mouthfeel, not bad.

Theydon_Bois (10618) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 19, 2014
Keg at the Rogue bar, PDX Flughafen, 12/11/14. Clear golden amber with moderate off white spotting and edgework. Nose is caramel malt forward, candied orange peel, bitter hops, light booze tunes. Taste comprises orange pith, bitter hoppy wash, grapefruit, mandarina, pine, caramel malt - less so than the aroma dictated. Medium + bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close. Ok DIPA.

Keg at the drygate. Pours clear golden amber, merest white head that appears to be forming into a map of Scotland. I know where I am now at least. Aromas are lemon verbena, floral, light syrup. Taste is light bitter, floral notes, almost perfumed and quite intense. Sweet, syrupy finish. Ok.

A complex aroma of cucumber, melon, hops and citrus with a cloudy amber color and an off white head. Interesting taste of hips and melon with a hint o cucumber. Dry feel with a slightly bitter floral citrus finish.0

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.
