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.

Creamy/frothy head that melts down after about 4 or 5 minutes. Looks like a hefeweizen. It is golden orange in color with a fair amount of yeast action on the bottom and small particle floating throughout. Smells very citrusy like a perfect orange. Hops hops and more hops in the flavor palate and everything else. Actually kind of bitter. This could have used a slight more amount of malts to balance it out better.

UPDATED: APR 7, 2004 Clear amber, no real head but a nice short lived lacing. Big nose with the strong aroma of noble hops its good to see that some brewers have not forgotten that not all hop are from Yakima {Cascades} Dry with strong hop bitterness the label describes it perfectly “IPA Squared” Re-rate had this on tap wow better still

- cloudy, orange/amber color, short white head, some Brussels Lace, hop aroma mixed with a light malt background, decent aroma but nothing spectacular; flavor of straight hops – WOW!, extreme hop bitterness – flowery array of hops, malt background is barely noticed, slight taste of alcohol is also present, smooth appetizing texture, what a beer!

Awesome. Big hop presence all around. Incredibly well balanced, appropriatly for the style. This was as good as the Stone IPA. Rogue never ceases to amaze me.

Powerfull hoppy aroma with hints of citrus/grapefruit. Dirty orangish color with lots of sediment. Huge hop taste that is complemented excellently with just enough sweet malt. The alcohol complements the tatste very well. Chewy bitter finish that lasts and lasts. Bitter, but not overwhelmingly so, Im not generaly a fan of hoppy beers, but this is one of my favorites.

I was immediately hit by the arome. It seemed to be imho wht the aroma should be for an IPA. The scent of classic english hops come through in a very woody nose. Teh beer pour a hazy deep gold with a good head and significant amounts of "lace" left around the glass. The flavor is bitter and a little off balance given the dryness of the beer. Teh alcohol come through amidst a buttery flavor at the end of the drink. Residual bitterness remains after the last sip. A good (not great) offering from a brewery that IMHO offers consistently unique and well executed beers.

Hoppy fresh aroma. Very cloudy and tea like in color. Thick and bitter and somewhat sweet. Seems to me just a little shy of a barley wine.

Slightly cloudy orangish-brown color with a huge head. Nice floral hop aroma. Some citric notes. Slight fruitiness. Nice underlying malt aroma. Tongue-numbing hop bitterness. Interesting blend of flavor hops. Not sure if the Saaz, Cascade, and Goldings combo works for me. Great maltiness, although not quite enough to back up the hop assault. Fairly full bodied. Fairly tasty, although the bitterness runs over everything else like a steamroller.
