COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
For the past decade we have poured much of our passion into brewing the best Pale Ale possible and we now feel the time is right to give you a little more…
Sitting alongside our Pale Ale, the IPA will deliver the big, rugged hop flavours and the citrusy nose that you would expect. However you’ll also detect aniseed and savoury notes, balanced out with a long firm bitterness to finish.

A good Aussie IPA but lacking a bit of hop punch and bitterness. A good alternative to many other IPAs nonetheless. Fairly good hop aroma with a touch of lychee and pine. A good session Aussie IPA, good work Little Creatures, in meeting the demand for more hop orientated beers in the Australian craft beer market.

MRMedellin (210) - Bogota, COLOMBIA - APR 20, 2014
Cloudy orange beer, small white head, clear floral and citric aromas comin from the hops are felt, but some sweet like honey are also perceived. When is tasted a medium body is felt. The flavor indeed has a strong hops making it floral, citric and bitter, but in contrast with an adequate balance with the malt, expected for the style. At the end of the day it could be the best Australian IPA I have tried so far.

I have enjoyed the pale ale on more occasions than is good for me and it is a benchmark of good beer. I thought the pils was good and then felt the rest of the range tailed off. Would this bring the trend up somewhat? Slightly hazy golden amber in colour with a good finger of rocky cream coloured head. A snort of aroma brings our a creamy character along with Seville oranges, grapefruit and some cassia bark (this is me wanting not admit it just has the aniseed notes the label holds and wanting to suggest my organoleptic abilities are more sophisticated than the everyman... yep. I’m a wanker) It is mellow, the aroma, approachable and superbly gratifying. A sip reveals that marmalade citrus with tangy sweet bitterness and brings for a hankering for one, two, three more. A delight in every facet so far; an immediate hit. I want, and will get, more.

slightly hazy, dark golden with a fine head. nice aroma of citrus, grapefruit and floral notes. well-balanced, full and lasting taste. a bit pricy.

BDD89 (12) - young, AUSTRALIA - FEB 25, 2014
Sweet fruity aroma. It has a slightly hazy golden appearance. A balanced hoppy flavour that corresponds with the malt profile and a slightly sweet taste with a firm but not overpowering bitterness. Little to no head. An all round great example of an IPA.

Westkyoto77 (538) - Kyoto, JAPAN - FEB 25, 2014
Bottle. Restrained aromas of citrus hops and damp straw. Glowing hazy orange with a rocky head. Nicely textured with a soft, rounded mouthfeel. Juicy, robust flavours, but not nearly as hoppy as comparable US IPAs. Delicious in its own way, though. Nicely done.

Rangi (597) - NEW ZEALAND - FEB 4, 2014
Been enjoying a few of these over the summer. Not the most complex IPA but has some nice citrus and passion fruit coming through. Enjoy the bitterness. Might be enjoying this beer a little more than usual because it seems to be popping up in a number of pubs across Melbourne where the only other alternative is bland lager.

Hint of passionfruit in aroma. Some cinnamon. Pours rusty orange. Taste of orange peel. Hops not strong. Light on front of tongue and just a splash of bitterness at the end. Even though 6.5% doesn't taste heavy. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bathory (458) - Bryne, NORWAY - JAN 16, 2014
Pours a cloudy coper xolour woth a small white head. Aroma is some citric elements, passipnfruit and some hay. Taste is much the same. A bit too bitter finish for me. It’s much like the pale ale, but more bitter and some slight bigger body. I liked the pale ale better.

Promised a lot on the nose but didn't deliver on the palette. Nice on the front with those classic little creatures pale ale floral notes but no sustained bitterness as I'd hoped from something claiming to be an IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
