A recently created style in the USA, Icon 2IPA is made in the American/Imperial Indian Pale Ale Style. Icon 2IPA is an extreme beer - extensive hopping creates intense citrus/passionfruit/peppery characters in the flavour and aroma balanced by sweet biscuity malt, which finishes with full bodied, rich and with a rounded bitterness. At 7.5% alcohol, Icon 2IPA is a beer to be savoured.

Bottle at home, thanks to Wingmanwillis for hoiking this one back, 27/05/14. Murky orange amber with a well appointed off white covering that settles in for the night. Nose is dank hop tones, bitter citrics, grapefruit, bitter orange, light mineral tones, bitter tropicals. Taste comprises bitter orange marmalade - kind of on the turn, dank hoppage, sticky pine, caramel malt, tarte apricot, bitter grapefruit, straw. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi aggressive hop bitterness in the close. This one grew on me, I wasn’t too taken at first but it proved to a be a half decent dank tropicana fuelled DIPA but a good few notches short of a great.

Didn't really enjoy the flavour of this beer. The hoops were very over powering . Won't be getting it again

Bottle - Hazy Amber Gold in colour. Very Fruity; intense zesty citrus grapefruit and orange, passion fruit. Very Hoppy; piney resinous and spicy peppery hops. Malty; sweet biscuity malt, caramel. Nice fruit/hop/malt balance. Sweet citrus fruity hoppy throughout leading to a dry hoppy finish. Very drinkable; not extreme. Nice DIPA!

Very malty for an IPA. But this doesn't take away from what is a good beer. Very big front, not much chop on the nose but big finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

The best beer in the world, bar none!!! I’ve been drinking beer all my life and never have I had a better beer. Torpedo comes close, but not better. Well done Shawn. Disappointed with flat beer in the stubbies, but consistently great on tap. Earthy, Malty, Spicey. Warms the cockles of the heart. Yum.

M_Sack (615) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - DEC 8, 2013
Tap @ The Taphouse Sydney. Cloudy gold/brown with a thick off-white head and heavy lacing. Big tropical citrus, passionfruit and pine resin aromas with a caramel malt backing. Strong hop notes of passionfruit, citrus, spice and resinous pine along with a solid biscuity malt backbone. Great Aussie example. Plenty of flavour yet very approachable.

Mild fruity aroma, very strong flavours of hops a very full flavoured beer to be sipped not smashed. Quite strong and smooth too.

Oakes (15490) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 10, 2013
Slightly hazy amber. Floral aroma with mandarin and other sweet citrus. Soft, lots of lychee, lemon, mandarin, and just a little bit of bitterness. Good, basic IIPA.

Pours a light golden haze white a nice small white head which dissipates to a small white lace ring. The nose is all about tropical fruit, a little banana and some peppery spice. Chewy roasted malts, much more malt and toasted malts then expected. Hop bitterness comes through nicely, more tropical fruits, a little spritzy and a light resin. Finished nicely, mainly due to the great malt back-bone, a the bitterness isn't over powering. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
