Brewed for easy drinking and packed with fruit aromas and flavours, this brew has earned a permanent place in the brewery taproom!
before even the first taste and smell, the scud xpa promises refreshment at first glance with its pale straw colour and tight, brilliant white head. this xpa (extra pale ale) is hop driven and its no wonder as we’ve dry hopped using a blend of 9 different hops sourced from australia, new zealand and the united states. this unique combination (which we’re keeping a tight secret) produces the massive ‘summer fruits’ aroma and flavour notes. at 28ibu’s, the sessionable quality of scud xpa is driven by the relatively low bitterness compared the american pales and ipa’s which typically sit at over 40 and 50ibu’s respectively. the scud takes its name from a 27 ton ketch built in brisbane water in 1850 by a shipbuilder who’s name has not survived in official records. soon after construction, it left newcastle in may 1850 with 4 crew bound for sydney and was never seen again – weeks later, an empty boat belonging to the scud was found washed up on putty beach in broken bay.
