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.

330ml bottle from Thirsty Camel at Eumundi. Ive been keen to try this one and had heard mixed reports, however this was pretty good. Nice fruity aroma but not much of a head. Very nice fruity, citrus tastes not unlike Hop Hog surprisingly. I reckon the good folk at Little Creatures have modelled this on their Feral opponent knowing if they can get it close, it?s a winner. Hides the 6.4% well. I was impressed and keen to try this on tap. Nice beer.

Davros (2066) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - SEP 25, 2013
Pours amber with a fading head. Nose shows tropical fruit, rich caramel and fruit confectionery. Very similar flavours, more of the fruit and confectionery along with some of the sweet malt. Finishes with an assertive but balanced bitterness. Carbonation seems a little high.

Vanz (189) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - SEP 21, 2013
Tropical fruit aroma. Nice bitterness, pine citrus and tropical fruits. Nice drinking IPA well hidden ABV, not sweet. Very similar to the Feral HopHog.

Sevenlee (1432) - Central Coast, NSW, AUSTRALIA - SEP 15, 2013
Pours a cloudy amber colour with a white head. Aroma is malt, tropical fruits, caramel, pine and hops. Taste is light to medium sweet of fruits leading to a balsy hop finish. Good one.

Hop_Hedonist (271) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - SEP 14, 2013
The beer Creatures had to make! Frighteningly similar to Hop Hog - is there a copyright issue?... Very welcome addition. Only a smidge less rated by me than Hop Hog which means... I like it... A lot. If these two beers were women, I’d have to have a ménage a trois.

News of bottling problems spread quickly here in Perth over this one. The units that made it to retail are all over the show and this was clearly evident in the four-pack I had picked up. A re-rate shall follow.
Orange, bright and very sparsely carbonated. Head holds for a few minutes before fading off. Nose is dominated by hops - all camphor, vine clippings, grass and bitter herbs, eucalypt and a strange note of anise. A touch too much diacetyl pokes its ugly head in too. Quite thin, subdued, almost watery on the palate. Dry, bitter and herbal length with a flavour reminiscent of sucking on a toothpick. Carbonation is low. Alcohol pleasantly restrained being a positive. A touch of butter, sulphur and burnt toast dwells briefly between sips. Cereal-like malt sits nervously in the background. Not in fine form. I will definitely be trying this one again down the track. (33cL, BB 12/05/14, Cellarbrations Carlisle)

jonnyguns (1090) - AUSTRALIA - SEP 11, 2013
Bottle from mane liquor. Pours a nice golden orange with a solid frothy white head. Nose is quite tropical fruit and citrus driven. Aroma has me excited!! Taste is a little bit of a let down. Inoffensive hoppiness with only a subtle citrus hop bitterness. Overall a pretty rounded ipa that should appeal to the masses. Not too bad! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

HopRedHead (396) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - AUG 16, 2013
Tap at the brewery. Pours golden orange with 3cm of fluffy white head. Upfront tropical aroma, passionfruit, mango and a bit of pine from galaxy and amarillo I’m guessing. Body is a bit too weak/watery - I’ve noticed this in the pale ale too lately so I’m not sure if its a new recipe (hop oil perhaps?). Palate has big tropical notes, similar pine and a touch of English style bitterness. Sessionable beer, kinda tastes just like a bigger version of their pale to be honest.
