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.

Very malty for an IPA. But this doesn't take away from what is a good beer. Very big front, not much chop on the nose but big finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

The best beer in the world, bar none!!! I’ve been drinking beer all my life and never have I had a better beer. Torpedo comes close, but not better. Well done Shawn. Disappointed with flat beer in the stubbies, but consistently great on tap. Earthy, Malty, Spicey. Warms the cockles of the heart. Yum.

Tap @ The Taphouse Sydney. Cloudy gold/brown with a thick off-white head and heavy lacing. Big tropical citrus, passionfruit and pine resin aromas with a caramel malt backing. Strong hop notes of passionfruit, citrus, spice and resinous pine along with a solid biscuity malt backbone. Great Aussie example. Plenty of flavour yet very approachable.

Mild fruity aroma, very strong flavours of hops a very full flavoured beer to be sipped not smashed. Quite strong and smooth too.

Oakes (11770) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 10, 2013
Slightly hazy amber. Floral aroma with mandarin and other sweet citrus. Soft, lots of lychee, lemon, mandarin, and just a little bit of bitterness. Good, basic IIPA.

Pours a light golden haze white a nice small white head which dissipates to a small white lace ring. The nose is all about tropical fruit, a little banana and some peppery spice. Chewy roasted malts, much more malt and toasted malts then expected. Hop bitterness comes through nicely, more tropical fruits, a little spritzy and a light resin. Finished nicely, mainly due to the great malt back-bone, a the bitterness isn't over powering. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

330ml bottle.

Pours a dark golden with not much white head that dissipates quickly.

Nose is very unusual for an IPA. It’s got some of the usual citrus and passionfruit aromas, but I also get a really dark, sweet nose. Almost like rum and some toffee. Interesting.

On the attack you get a big burst of passionfruit. This is followed on the mid palate by some citrus and pine notes. Towards the end is where it really starts to shine. There’s more of those rich, sweet prune and caramel notes followed by a quite bitter, resinous finish.

This beer is really excellent. It’s still got the amazing hop flavours and aromas of other big hoppy beers, but they’re really well balanced by delicious sweetness.
