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.

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

Dervock (503) - Emu plains, AUSTRALIA - DEC 26, 2013
Bottle - pours deep gold with a big white head. Big floral and stone fruit, almost vanilla like creamy smell. Taste is passion fruit up front with a dry finish which us not overbearing, but very subtle. Mouthfeel is just lovely an creamy. Really nice beer!

Tomy63 (190) - Clermont-Ferrand, FRANCE - DEC 21, 2013
Pale ale très légère comme la Sierra Nevada pale ale, ou la Liberty ale, pas très amère, sur le houblon, très facile à boire, manque un peu de fruit.

varanid99 (556) - AUSTRALIA - DEC 19, 2013
Golden pour with a thin white head. Grapefruit, mango and a little malty aroma. Taste is mostly grapefruit with a little piney note to it, biscuit, and finish holds a little bitterness. There are definitely bigger and bolder local IPAs around but this is pretty good, and very easy drinking.

mattyhennessy (342) - Highton, AUSTRALIA - DEC 16, 2013
UPDATED: JUL 14, 2014 Pint at the Geelong brewery. Deep golden color. Medium carbonation with a light foamy head. Aroma of citrus and grapefruit. Reflected know the taste. A much more refreshing ipa than most coming from the US. Floral and passionfruit flavours on the tongue also. Perfect for summer. A little too sweet though

Mjollnir (391) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - DEC 10, 2013
330mL bottle. Pours clear gold with a small persistent white head. Strong aroma of citrus, passionfruit, biscuity and toasty malts. Fairly malty flavour with a hoppy tang, mild sweetness and medium bitterness. Medium bodied, light carbonation with a lingering finish.

A very nice floral IPA. Excellent flavour and lasting bitterness on the palate. Very good drinking but be careful of the 6.4 abv.

Maris (1019) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - DEC 4, 2013
From a 330ml bottle on 4/12/2013. Pours a slightly cloudy golden orange, with a smallish, thin head. It kicks off with a nice, light fruity aroma, which is perhaps a touch subdued by IPA standards. Taste wise, this isn’t a typical yank IPA clone - citrus and tropical fruit are really prominent (orange, lemon and mango), and there’s a bit of biscuity malt, followed by a firm yet relatively subtle zesty, herbal bitterness at the back. LC have made an IPA which is nicely balanced and a little bit unusual. A very welcome addition to the range.

Kurtos (103) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - DEC 1, 2013
Bottle. Pours a nice light golden colour with medium carbonation. Aroma. Can smell mainly tropical flavours. Taste. Taste is citrus, with a nice passionfruit touch and a slight pine taste. Overall. Quite a good beer, i’d say it’s just a touch better then their pale ale, but if i compared them side to side, i wouldn’t be surprised if i picked the pale ale.

Niksko (375) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - NOV 21, 2013
Pours a light clear golden with a finger of foamy white head.
Nose is fresh citrus, passionfruit, pineapple and a bit of toffee.
Taste is citrus up front, some really lovely toffee and biscuity notes on the mid palate and then a piney and biscuity finish.
Spot on carbonation and the body is medium to light.
An excellent IPA from the guys at LC. Very balanced and nuanced. It’s not a huge hop bomb, but it still ticks all the right boxes.
