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.

Kurtos (124) - Sydney, - 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.

Pleasingly different to my usual NZ IPAs. Slight cloudiness promises a natural and slightly feral drop, with a well rounded hop aroma to boot. Lovely bitterness.

KeefOz (1154) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - JUL 10, 2015
BB 25Jan16. Poured a clear orange brown colour with 5mm of off-white foamy that diminished rapidly to a collar that laced poorly. Carbonation extremely low and fine. Aroma subtly but inviting of citrus (grapefruit, orange), tropical fruits and malt. Taste strongly of citrus/grapefruit, hints of passionfruit, subtle sweet maltiness; hoppy bitterness dominates. Light body. Clean, crisp, refreshing with malt sweetness and a moderate bitterness on the finish, Quite good.

TedE (546) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JUN 28, 2015
330ml into tulip glass. Mild orange/tangerine nose. Copper coloured beer with lasting fluffy white head. Quite high carbonation. This has quite a subtle hop bitterness leading to fruity caramel then a long bitter finish, liqourice lurks in the background. Nice beer, dangerously quaffable at 6.4%

jookos (3602) - FINLAND - JUN 13, 2015
Bottle. Ambery Id guess (straight from bottle). Piney caramels, citrus, some green berryish/green tropicals on nose. Piney, robust. Med bodied, caramels sweets, well bittered. Pine in finish. Quite nice piney fruity ipa.

colui72 (324) - HONG KONG - JUN 11, 2015
Beautiful amber, thin blonde head, aroma of grapefruit, that leads well to the hoppy finish. A very nice IPA.

Nicko (221) - Ashfield, AUSTRALIA - MAY 31, 2015
Citrusy US hops aromas, like a beefed up version of the pale ale. Comes in a handy four pack to distinguish you from Johnny six-pack.

Sandog_au (38) - Gladstone, AUSTRALIA - APR 10, 2015
American style IPA. Pours a cloudy orange golden colour with an off white creamy foam that dissipates slowly. Has good carbonation. Sweet Apple malt aromas. Slight hoppy bitterness at first but a strong malty finish. medium body mouth feel. Overall a nice beer for those that want the higher ABV but other American pale ales can be just as rewarding without the strength.

stevoj (2956) - Boise, Idaho, USA - APR 10, 2015
Not a bad IPA, hazy copper body, creamy off white head with lots of lacing. Aroma of pine, hops and hints of malt. Taste is text book IPA, finish is a tad metallic.

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.

decent IPA. Hoppy aroma and flavour, a hint of sweetness. decent but not Australia’s best ipa.
