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.

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 (2299) - 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!

Bottle thanks to cgarvieuk. Slightly hazy yellow/orange, thick bubbly white head. Big resinous hop nose, hint of pepper spice, big orange pith. Juicy orange and tropical fruits, big pine resin, slight boozy warmth and a big juicy drying hop finish.

Sevenlee (1711) - Central Coast, NSW, AUSTRALIA - FEB 28, 2012
Pours a cloudy orange with a tall frothy off-white head. Aroma is quite fruity with citrus and passionfruit coming out most along with some nice hop character. Taste is also quite fruity with some biscuity notes leading to a well balanced bitter finish. Lovely soft mouth feel. Great IPA.

ComradeK (1100) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - DEC 12, 2011
330ml bottle. Pours a cloudy golden brown, with a huge off-white head, which lasts very well, and leaves good lacing. The aroma is somewhat muted by the head, but does feature faint caramel malt notes sitting over a base of potent pine resin and grapefruit hops. Strong pine and tangy lime hops, with some hints of pepper, introduce it, before giving way to a surprisingly smooth and slightly sweet body of caramel and a touch of toffee. Powerful lime and spice hops flavours create a strongly bitter finish, with a lingering spicy aftertaste. This is a nice DIPA; not as over-the-top as some others, but with enough bite to push it over the line from being a standard IPA. It is a bit more easy-drinking than others in the style, but it certainly doesn’t lack flavour.
