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.

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

DeliriumT (459) - 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.

Opaque and almost grey appearance from the bottle. Tastes and looks mildly oxidized. Big, citrusy, malty. Reminds me of a homebrewed IIPA. Not bad, but certainly not great. Won’t be buying it again.

Bottle. Hazy orange body with sparse of-white head. Citrus aroma and taste with a bitter finish. Oily, resinous mouthfeel. Possibly an old bottle.

BenH (3438) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 5, 2012
Bottle. Murky amber brown with an off white head. Nice aroma, resinous piney hops, slightly citrus, some mango in there. Taste is very nice and balanced, resinous piney hops, orange marmalade and mango, some caramel malt flavour too. Fairly tame in the bitterness department, could easily be ramped up if it’s to consider itself a double ipa, good body. Very nice and smooth, probably be more fitting to consider this a regular ipa rather than a double. Stands up to the Americans and British. I really liked this

MJGG (952) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 21, 2012
Bouteille de 330 ml. Arômes de houblons américains fruités et surtout résineux. Robe ambrée et passablement trouble, effervescence moyenne et belle mousse qui tient bien. En bouche, le caractère aromatique du houblonnage à froid est à l’avant-plan, supporté par un corpulent malt caramélisé et moyennement sucré. Finale montrant une longue amertume. Intéressant, mais je préfère les IPA moins maltées et moins résineuses.

magdalar (516) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - APR 15, 2012
Draught. Pours a clear amber with a white head. Smells of grapefruit, a bit of pineapple, citrus and floral hops. Tastes of a medium sweetness, with a medium-large bitterness with a nice balance. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, somewhat syrupy texture. Finishes clean with a short bitterness.

GothGargoyle (2271) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 30, 2012
Appearance is golden brown with a good white head. Aroma is pine, wet grass, pineapple. Taste is caramel, pine, passionfruit. Nicely balanced, detecting both malt and a good bitterness on the palate without either dominating. One of the nicest IPA's I have had, a good break from the overhopped trend of the Pacific Northwest.

In bottle at Craigs. Pours a dark golden colour with a fair beige head. Aroma of pineapple, passion fruit, mango, caramel and yeast. Similar flavours with mild carbonation and an oily mouth-feel. Lovely lingering passion fruit and pineapple. Superb!
