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.

Mjollnir (384) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - SEP 28, 2010
330mL bottle, BB 08/11. Pours clear dark gold with a thick off-white head that settles down to a thin covering and leaves a little lacing. Aroma of citrus, passionfruit and caramel. Medium sweetness and bitterness, some hop flavour, sweeter and less bitter than expected. Medium bodied, average carbonation, fairly creamy with a lingering but slightly dulled finish.

bmeup (499) - Ormeau, AUSTRALIA - SEP 24, 2010
Dark amber orange under a thick white head, very inviting. Sweet tropical aromas. Sweet malt a first sip then quite a long resinous, spicy hop hit. Alcohol very present and warming. Very much like this and dont know of an Aussie 2ipa to compare. Awsome sipper.

jonno (2135) - JAPAN - JUL 17, 2010
UPDATED: OCT 30, 2010 Now donít get me wrong - this is good but itís again a very malt heavy beer which seems to be the norm for this style in Australia. Nose is nice and ballsy and the initial sips are very enjoyable, but as it warms the malt comes to the fore and tends to dominate too prominently. I would personal knock this down to about 6.5% and keep the hopping regime as is. Difficult to get hold of too..if this was regularly available I would probably drink quite often. So in summary good, but not great. Rerate Bottle. This was quite poor and heavily malty. I hope this was a bad bottle.

ndon (857) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 21, 2010
UPDATED: JUL 15, 2010 very creamy in the mouth, the grapefruit was the main flavour that hit me. with a caramel/toffee malt, this was quite pleasing

hawthorne00 (2261) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JUN 7, 2010
UPDATED: OCT 18, 2010 Tap. Amber, with a small but dense cream head. Aroma: nectarine, pear, caramel under resin and grapefruit. Pretty inviting - it certainly doesnít whack you with hops. Just creamy mouthfeel. Big caramel, mild tropical sweetness backed with initially modest but aromatic bitterness. Citrus and resin build and linger. Big, but not loud. Low-key for the style and very drinkable. [3.9]

Bottle, 9C. Clear amber with a creamy light beige head. Big but far from brash fruity and pine aroma has nectarine and kumquats. Taste has those and some solid biscuity malt. Not that much bitterness compared to the aromatic hops, but thereís enough. Pretty harmonious for this sort of thing.

UPDATED: JUL 11, 2010 Fantastic beer. Anything from this brewery is special. Big hoppy taste. Very attractive looking beer. Makes you want to guzzle the whole glass just based on itís look. The hops taste fresh and mold beautifully. This Double IPA doesnít exactly blow your head off with bitterness, but certainly has zing!
