4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: APR 13, 2015 Clean and crisp, this is what I love about Little Creatures, they produce high quality beer with their own little twist. A slight hit of zest and a
Lovely touch of bitterness. Well rounded beer, with great session-able quality.
Second time around, I'm picking up a lot more of the savory, drying characteristics. A touch of woody pine, slight licorice, and gives a light impression of the Mediterranean; salty, spicy and just deeeeelicious.
*As I let the vapor sit in my mouth, I get a huge deal of smoke, which really reinforces the exotic feel I was getting from the palate.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This is a really, really good IPA. So much more character and dare I say elegance than their Golden Ale. Floral and citrus hints are in there along with some well balanced and hoppiness. 1.7 ABV suprisingly but a tad expensive by the bottle. Look forward to drinking this at the brewery.

From a bottle. Pours light copper with minimal head, big grapefruit flavours with a resin finish. Great example of the style, drink it.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
From a 330ml bottle (BB 7/4/15). Hazy dark amber with a moderate firm white head. Nose offers caramel malts beneath prominent tropical fruity, citrusy and floral hops with a hint of spiciness. Palate is smooth and amazingly drinkable and tastes like a ramped up version of their legendary pale ale with plenty of hoppy fruity bitterness to the finish (but not "show-offy"). Excellent stuff.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Nice step up from the Little Creatures Pale Ale. Floral and caramel aroma, pour is a nice orange amber with a white head and nice lacing.
Flavour is reasonably well balanced, lots of complex flavours, caramel, burnt toffee, orange, apricot finishing with a firm but not over the top bitterness. Would rate higher, but is a fraction sweet for my liking, but that is a very picky criticism. Overall a good beer.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On draught at Trappeze Pub, athens, Ga. Pours a hazy dark gold with lasting white head and lace. Intense floral hop aroma. Initial slight maltiness before bitterness jumps in. Medium body. Hops dominate the flavor profile but no citrus or astringency. Nce.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
bottle, at the union in newtown, why didn’t they think of this sooner? pale amber with an orange tinge and a lasting off-white head; similar aroma to the regular little creatures - some lychee and caramel; grapefruit tang, biiscuity malts, plenty of bitterness though i wouldn’t have minded more

Bottle poured a clear orange amber with a small lasting amber head. Aromas of biscuit, grapefruit zest, pine and light earthiness. Palate was light bodied and smooth with a dry finish. Flavors of bread, pine, light grapefruit zest and light earthiness with a smooth dry lightly bitter finish.

On tap at Archive Beer Boutique September 2013. Honey amber in colour with a dominating citrus aroma. Feels thin in the mouth but has some good flavour.
