To quote one of this correspondent’s daughters – OMG.
Possibly the bucolic setting contributed, but this stubby of Icon 2IPA was one of the finest beers I’ve consumed.
In this instance label hyperbole is justified. “this is not a beer for the faint-hearted”. A single sniff after opening indicates that an assault on the senses is coming. Violent hoppiness that’s harder than a right from Earnie Shavers.
The taste is simply awesome and large. Wonderful bitterness that lasts and lasts. There’s a real spiciness to this beer that is nothing but enjoyable.
It pours surprisingly copper coloured with a reasonable head and looks good, but this is a beer for drinking not looking at.
