MURRAY’S ICON 2IPA

Murray's Icon 2IPA. This is Murray’s most heavily hopped beer using more than 1kg of hops per 100 litres. It is said to have intense citrus, passionfruit and peppery characteristics with a sweet biscuity malt backbone. At 7.5% ABV it’s relatively low in alcohol for a double IPA.

I’ve tried this beer a few times in the past. The first time I tried it on tap in Sydney I loved it. The second visit was on tap at Murray’s Brewery at Bob’s Farm where I the hop flavours were quite harsh. For this review I tried it on tap at Bitter Phew in Sydney.

Red honey colour with a creamy head. Strong, dank, weed-like aroma. The first impression is a big mouthful of weed. Strong herbal and weed-like flavours with a bitter kick. The body is relatively thin and there isn’t much of a malt backbone. For a relatively strong beer in terms of body it’s deceptively easy to drink if you can handle the pungent hop flavours.

This is Nimbin in a beer. It’s almost as though Stevo poured his bong water into your beer.

 

6/10
