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.

Scopey (5521) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 21, 2011
Bottle from GBBF 2011. It pours hazy deep orange-gold, with a thick white head. The nose is orange citrus fruits (particularly mango), pine, orange sherbet and creamy. The taste is sweet orange, zesty tangerine, tangy marmalade, sherbet, resin, pine, big bitterness, leather, oily hop, spice and light alcohol warmth, with a tangy citrus-dry finish. Medium body, moderate carbonation and foamy mouth-feel. A well balanced, high drinkable, zesty double IPA.

INDASTRIA (129) - Berlin & Rome, GERMANY - SEP 14, 2011
Bottle. Honey/copper color, white head. hop (not that much), caramel, nuts aroma. On the palate i got caramel, nuts, toffee mostly, with a hint of hop and fruity character. Usually i don’t like the IIPA caramel notes but in this case it was just ok and not annoying. Medium body, ok carbonation, quite bitter. very light and enjoyable IIPA, really refreshing.

Pyobon (860) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - AUG 24, 2011
(Bottle) Poured hazy copper with good off-white head. Beautiful delicate aroma of flowers and tangy fruit. Medium body with full carbonation. The flavour has a well balanced start with malt and caramel complementing refreshing citrusy notes. This start moves rapidly to a strong, but pleasant, bitter hop finish that stays around. Overall a great IPA, but a bit too heavy on the hops for my taste.

Miksu (4830) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - AUG 16, 2011
0.33 l bottle from GBBF2011. Sweetish citrusy aroma lemon, nuts, toffee and cranberries. Bittersweet nutty, grassy and citrusy flavor with warming alcohol. Strong bitter, nutty, grassy and slightly soapy finish. Might have lost some freshness.

Bottle. They’ve got this one right, that balance was spot on and I enjoyed both the malty base and fruity hops.

Hazy honey colour with a thick white head. Hints of passionfruit in the aroma and taste. Lovely bitter touches.

maneliquor (2785) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - APR 15, 2011
UPDATED: JUN 12, 2012 Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours a hazy amber with a big, fluffy white head. Awesome lacing. Notes of sweet caramel and sweet fruits, as well as hops. Very balanced. A great toffee and caramel undertone with sweet fruits and light lingering bitterness. Very balanced and lingers for ages. Aussie craft at it’s best. The problem I have been having with Murray’s beers however, is mass oxidation. A fair few Icon’s lately have been huge gushers and impossible to drink. This brings the score down a little for being inconsistent

filiy (28) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - MAR 23, 2011
Poured out of bottle, dark goldeny colorm good head. Hoppy aroma, picked out carmel and fruityness in palate. Nice mouth feel, thought it would be more hoppy but it is a nice well balanced beer that you could have a couple of.
