COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Hazy deep amber beer. Tidy white head. Creamy malt nose with a trace of caramel. Light palate, fluffy with fine carbonation. Nice caramel malt background. Nicely balanced hops that start sweet and piney but morph into bitter grapefruit. Semi dry finish with a mild bitter linger. Good stuff.

Tap at Murray's at manly. Pours a darker organs with a small white head. Citrus, passionfruit and loads of hops in the nose! Massive nose. Incredibly hoppy. Taste is more hops with passionfruit, citrus and mango coming through. Biscuity malts in there too. This is awesome

phrostyboi (2) - AUSTRALIA - NOV 30, 2012 does not count
first íreviewí if you call it that for me, picked up a 330ml bottle at a local, not quite sure what to make of it or if iíve got a dud bottle or not the texture and flavours remind me of abbey ales, seems to be overly carbonated for an IPA style reminds me of the yeasty caramel I find in abbey beers, the head on this I found to be huge, took a few minutes to pour a glass of it as I had to let the head settle 3 or 4 times very long bitter type finish with a slight aftertaste of alcohol not so sure of this one but would have it again

CitrusP (59) - Newcastle, AUSTRALIA - NOV 23, 2012
Pours a dark amber with a small off white head. Big aroma of mango and caramel, with a little piney hop character, smells very fresh. Mango and caramel come through in the taste, with the slight sweetness balanced by a lively, peppery hop character. heavy on the palate to start with, balanced by a fairly sharp and lively bitterness. bitterness and peppery character linger on for a fair while. One of my favourites when very fresh. Excellent.

Pours dark amber with a thin but creamy white head. Bold flavours of citrus and pepper with a bitter aftertaste.

Not really a DIPA more more of a bigger IPA. Still a good beer and the benchmark for Australian IPAís. Lots of pine and citrus notes. At times can have a bigger malt backbone than needed. Still a solid beer.

DeliriumT (361) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - AUG 3, 2012
Pours a hazy copper colour with almost no head. The smell is sweet and sugary with pine needle freshness. The flavour is caramel and fresh hops. More on the grassy pine side of the spectrum than the fruity citrus side.

I did not like this at all, perhaps a bad bottle? It just had so many competing flavours and failed to live up to the hype. I could not finish the glass.
