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.

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.

cattrall (44) - Midlevels, HONG KONG - JUL 30, 2014
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.

Dervock (553) - Emu plains, AUSTRALIA - DEC 26, 2013
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.

BDD89 (12) - young, AUSTRALIA - 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.

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.

Maris (1118) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - DEC 4, 2013
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.
