COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Murray’s Angry Man Pale Ale, is our idea of beer heaven. A hybrid of an American Pale Ale, combined with the classic English Pale Ale, the beer is a brilliant light-golden colour. Murray’s Angry Man Pale Ale has a full-bodied finish and complex character. The beer’s fresh citrusy/spicy aroma and flavour is strongly influenced by generous use of New Zealand-grown Motueka and Pacifica hops. This is well balanced with biscuity/toffee flavours from selected caramalts.

A tasty beer but varies from store to store. Exploded out of my nose upon sipping. I also tried their Whale Ale. It also exploded like a poorly trained male porn star. Over carbonated? I think so.

Pours a yellow colour with a very tall frothy white head. Aroma is sweet, citrusy fruits and some spices. Taste is also sweet citrus with some light biscuit, toffee and caramel notes leading to a subtle, well balanced bitter finish. Good job!

Dredd (684) - Bentleigh, AUSTRALIA - FEB 5, 2012
Initially I liked this beer, but as it went on it was harder and harder work and as commented by others it is more than a bit over carbonated which is a shame. Pout is muddy orange with a foamy persistent white head. Aroma is a bit of spice and citrus which follows through to the palate once you chew through the bubbles. Finish is quite dry and long. Nice, but not Murray’s greatest (which is still better than most)

Gramoit (347) - AUSTRALIA - FEB 5, 2012
Pours a golden colour with a very hoppy aroma. Very tasty and dominated by the hops with a little honey. Angry man’s pale ale ( formally nirvana) is a very good beer all year round ( especially in summer) and is a great sessional beer

Pours hazy golden from the bottle with a massive head like a weizen beer. This beer is over carbonated by a country mile for a pale ale all this does is hide the wonderful flavours the brewer intended for us. It shows some hop, clove and citrus like aroma and some nice malt and hop flavours that are clean tasting and resonably fresh. It finishes quite well.

Stew41 (1663) - Woodend, AUSTRALIA - JAN 28, 2012
Very impressed with this. Like a stripped back Nirvana with dry structure and amazing herbal and nettle driven hops. Low malt impact, or at least subtle to my tastes. Hints of tropical fruit sweetness in the very back palate. It’s beers like this that serve as a very clear reminder that the beer geek needs to ease off on the bigger / whacky is better and instead focus on and encourage well crafted and super drinkable classics.

I hadn’t seen this beer from Murrays before, but i’ve always been impressed by their beers so I picked a bottle up. Definitely not dissapointed. The beer has a big fruit driven hop aroma with a great US pale ale type nose. plenty of hop flavour as well, I hope that this beer is a regular and will be available widely as I may have found my new go to beer.

Bottle from Dan Murphys (didn’t check the best before until I got home and it had gone past by about a month - guess I deserve that for going to Dan Murphys). Lovely clear amber pour with a large, fluffy white head on top. Aroma is light citrus and biscuit malts, all quite subdued. Light floral hops mingle with citrus hoppage. Slight nutty tone behind it all and backed by a sweet biscuity malt. Palate is cut short by a little over carbonation and fizz. Not bad but not like the reviews had promised. Will have to re-rate once I get my hands ona fresh bottle

Pyobon (861) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - DEC 24, 2011
UPDATED: FEB 25, 2012 (bottle) Pours clear golden with little head. Lovely aroma - complex floral and fruity bouquet. Medium body with good carbonation. Beautiful foretaste from the hops with the complex and light floral and fruity notes in the aroma. Solid mid-taste with malts balanced with bitterness. However the finish is a bit soft for a beer like this: the hoppy bitterness that shows such promise earlier does not deliver a long bitter finish. Overall a nice IPA: lovely flavour and nose, but room for improvement in the finish. Rated: saturday, december 24, 2011 Edited Feb 2012 for changes to availability

ALLOVATE (2281) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - DEC 21, 2011
Yeast on in it poured a hazy, dull sandy orange with very, very fine carbonation. Big rocky white crown dwindles back a little to leave a thick web of lace. There is a lot going on in the aroma. Resinous, spicy, herbaceous and piney nose with licks of biscuity malt, peach, guava and blood orange, very nice indeed. First sip brings a mountain of flavour to the palate and gets the tastebuds all tingling. Drawn out sweetness of ripe citrus fruits, quite tangy and all piercing. Good, firm, meaty body with just enough spritz to give it bounce, the tail end being smooth, resinous and oily. Biscuity malt, fresh cracked toasted grain fill it out and tie in well. Herbaceous, slightly floral hops slip up into the olfactories on the swallow which is surprisingly tamer than expected. End is dry, not too much sticks around between sips. A hint of fruit bubblegum builds. This is pure evil. I could just keep drinking this, I can’t really fault it. Easily one of Oz’s best Pale ales! (33cL, BB 14/09/12, Dan Murphy’s Currambine)
