COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Murray’s Angry Man Pale Ale is a classic US pale ale. Australian, English and German malts balance the huge citrus/pine hop aroma and flavour strongly influenced by generous use of US Centennial and New Zealand Motueka and Pacifica hops. A brilliant light-golden colour, Murray’s Angry Man Pale Ale has a full-bodied finish and complex character. This is well balanced with biscuity/toffee flavours from selected caramalts.

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!

Draught This beer has replaced Murrays Nirvana PA. Such a joy to be able to get $4.30 schooners of it at my local bowls club! Clean golden body, fluffy white head. Aroma bursting full of tropical and citrus fruit hops; guava, grapefruit, bit of leafy resin, and light malt caramels. Medium-to-full body, good carbonation, slick texture to it. Plenty of fruity hop on the body with a genuine malt sweetness that gives the palate some nice weight. Solid bitterness to finish lingers. Truely one of the great Australian APAs, be hard to go past compared to others.

Bought from the brewery in a 1.89L growler and consumed at home. Pours a clear amber colour with a white head. Strong citrus aroma and very pleasant hop taste with a hint of citrus.

Bottle. Golden pour with off white head and soapy lace. Citrus hops and grainy malts on the nose and tongue with a mild dry bitter finish for the style. Nothing hits you over the head. Light-medium body with a spiritely mouthfeel. An easy drinking lawn mower beer.

From a 330ml bottle on 10/12/2011. This is apparently a replacement for Murray’s Nirvana Pale Ale, and I seen numerous suggestions this is the same beer and simply relabeled. However, this one has a higher ABV, and it does taste different (albeit similar) to Nirvana. The respective labels indicate that different hops are used (Cascade and Hallertau for Nirvana and Pacifica and Motueka for Angry Man). Pours a deep, fairly clear golden with a small head which disappears quickly. Has a nice sweet aroma, with passionfruit, honey and caramel and floral notes present. Flavour wise, it’s sweet and fruity with some caramel malt evident. Finishes with a distinct hoppy finish. A truly excellent APA from one a few consistently good brewers in Oz.

KeefOz (1152) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - AUG 16, 2012
Poured a translucent honey amber colour with a two-finger white foamy head that diminished quickly but laced well. Moderate carbonation. Aroma of malt and sweet hops. Taste had faint malt but dominated a bit by hops which gave a mild bitterness. Medium body. Medium length slightly bitter finish but quite a good beer.

GoufCustom (1109) - HONG KONG - OCT 7, 2013


330 ml bottle bought at CitySuper in Harbour City, Tsim Sha Tsui.

Looks: Cloudy hazy golden amber colour with traces of dirt like yeast sediments. One finger head and white foam which last for 2 minutes. Very good sticky lacing with fizzy carbonation.

Aroma: Very fragrant nose of sweet ale malt, with fresh grapefruit, orange blossoms, molasses, canned peaches, pine cone, hint of chocolate, and faint grass.

Taste: Light sweet and refreshing ale malt, with pomelo, grapefruit, light peaches, pine, yeast, strong lime and strong grass.

Body: Medium, with thick and oozy palate.

Mouth Feel: dominated by refreshing pomelo - more so than the usual grapefruit - in a thick oozy rasiny background. I’m in a treat! Complemented with piney, slightly yeasty and good lime. Very enjoyable!

Hoppiness: refreshing citrus, grapefruits, orange blossoms, and pine cones in nose and taste, and a moderate to low touch of bitterness for a low-key finish.

After Taste: Slightly dry, very easy and fruity to mouth.

Comments:This is one very enjoyable APA, its genius use of the fruity Motueka and Pacifica hops brings a refreshing, piney, fruity and oozy nose and taste to a wholesome body. Drinking this is a pure joy. Highly recommended, of course!

Pyobon (1103) - 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

Bottle. Pours golden with disappearing white head. Aroma is a lil bland. Taste isn't much better slight citrus backing and quite spritzy. Average beer at best

A nice APA. Lots of good floaters and an orange hue. Cirus notes. A good example of the style.
