4.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
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.

One of the best Australian IPAs available. Pours well and the hopping has been well thought out with flavour up-front as well as in the after-taste.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Very pleasantly surprised with Little Creatures’ first foray into IPA’s. Aroma citrus and medium hops. Appearance golden yellow amber. Taste a highlight - citrus with medium hops and a very pleasant lingering IPAish taste on the roof of the mouth (is that a technical beer tasting term haha?) Overall a very satisfying beer. Not the full-on IPA of the Pacific Northwest, but much more than the british / Scottish versions. Excellent beer.

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!

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.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
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.

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.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.
