Two new IPAs released by Murray’s Brewery
By Andy Young
Murray’s Brewery is set for a busy April after announcing it plans to release two new bottled IPAs this month.
The Skully Red IPA and Spartacus Imperial IPA will be released, adding to the range of IPAs already available from the brewer.
Head brewer, Graeme Mahy said: “We’re a little bit obsessed with IPAs, having already launched our favourite Fred IPA, plus Big Wednesday IPA, Black Bear Black IPA and – who could forget – even LambBorghini IPA for Australia Day last year.
"Across April we’ll be releasing a range of IPAs of differing colours and flavours in the bottle and draught, beginning with the unconvential ‘Skully’ Red IPA and culminating in the launch of Spartacus Imperial IPA."
Skully Red is a 5.6 per cent ABV beer with a deep red colour which comes from European caramalts. The brew also has Mosaic and Mt Hood hops and Mahy describes it as being "simply delicious".
The Spartacus Imperial is a much bolder beer which has been brewed in the big US IPA style and has a 10 per cent ABV.
Mahy added: “Big, robust and dangerously drinkable, this titan of a beer gets a big 10 out of 10 for flavour. There are almost too many hop additions to count."
The Skully Red and Spartacus Imperial will be released in bottle on 2 April and 16 April respectively and will be available through Murray's cellar door and website, as well as from leading craft beer retailers nationally.
