While lemon is banned from all Murray's beers, one member of the citrus family has passed muster. We've added fresh grapefruit zest to our signature IPA and are REALLY happy with the result . . . hence Grapefruit FRED IPA was born!
It's not what most people would think to add to beer, but the tartness of the grapefruit perfectly complements the citrusy hop character of FRED.
FRED is aggressively late hopped with a house blend of hops from the US Pacific Northwest. It has the classic US IPA hop aroma and flavour of big citrus, tropical fruit and pine notes throughout. An assertive bitterness is balanced by the sweetness of the pale, crystal and wheat malt additions.
The addition of grapefruit boosts the citrus fruit aroma and flavour complementing the tropical and citrus fruit from the US Amarillo and Citra hops.
