Imperial India Pale Ale, Rogue Brewery, Newport, OR

What's better than an IPA? How about an IMPERIAL IPA? It's like the old Tim Allen bit where he always wants more power, well I feel that way about hops and the Rogue Imperial India Pale Ale was bringing the hops. The beer was very hoppy and the Cascade hop bitterness quotient is perfect. This IPA is not for the faint of heart, the ABV is at 9.5%, and while there is a slight alcohol tinge to the taste, it does not detract from the beer. In fact the only problem was that it only came in a 10.5 oz serving. If you are looking for a strong IPA, definitely pick this one up. The rating is at a 4.5.
