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.

bmeup (669) - 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 (2687) - JAPAN - JUL 17, 2010
UPDATED: OCT 30, 2010 Now don’t get me wrong - this is good but it’s 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.
