Murray's Big Wednesday India Pale Ale (IPA) is an explosion of hop flavour and aroma. An IPA with a twist, it is brewed without a standard bittering hop addition and without using any rich crystal malts in the grain bill.
Big Wednesday is a drier IPA with an emphasis on strong hop flavour and drinkability. Bucketloads of fresh New Zealand hops added late in the brewing process give Big Wednesday its unique bittersweet balance.
It is a noticeably bigger beer than Murray's Angry Man Pale Ale, but isn't as intense and mouthfilling as the Icon 2IPA. Its blend of the NZ Riwaka, Motueka and Pacifica hops combine for a uniquely fruity hop aroma and flavour that leaps from the glass - almost over the top but very moreish.
At 6% ABV it demands respect but is dangerously drinkable for its size.
Great on its own or with hot and spicy foods such as Mexican.
