MURRAY’S FRED IPA

Murray's Fred IPA. When I heard about this beer I thought it was going to be in the same vein as other Murray’s brews. All their beers, including the Angry Man Pale Ale, Big Wednesday IPA and Doghouse IPA, are hopped with Kiwi hops.

But this beer is different - it’s the first Murray’s beer to be brewed without Kiwi hops. It was hopped with a house blend of hops from the Pacific Northwest of the US. From what I can gather, pale malt is the only malt addition.

It’s a respectable 6% ABV and 75 IBU. Being unfiltered, it’s got a hazy and yeasty appearance. This was the last beer brewed under the helm of head brewer Shawn Sherlock who has moved onto starting his own brewpub in Newcastle.

Hazy, golden yellow colour with a creamy and hoppy head. Nice citrus and grapefruit aroma. Strong citrus, grapefruit and underlying pine hop flavour. Clean mouthfeel with a dry and firm bitter finish. One of my favourite Murray’s brews to date.

If you like a refreshing and bitter IPA check it out.

 

8/10
