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.

BDD89 (12) - young, - 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.

Sandog_au (30) - 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 (2714) - 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.

RafeAU (320) - Kingston, AUSTRALIA - MAR 12, 2015
decent IPA. Hoppy aroma and flavour, a hint of sweetness. decent but not Australia’s best ipa.

Feral_Hop_Hog (22) - - MAR 7, 2015
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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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

floydian1 (1136) - FNQ, Australia, - FEB 3, 2015
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.

Dredd (714) - Bentleigh, AUSTRALIA - DEC 12, 2014
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.

tomciccateri (1028) - Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA - OCT 13, 2014
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.

motelpogo (7175) - Plzen, CZECH REPUBLIC - AUG 31, 2014
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
