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 (17) - 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 (505) - 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!

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.

Maris (1025) - 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.

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.

UPDATED: JUL 14, 2014 Pint at the Geelong brewery. Deep golden color. Medium carbonation with a light foamy head. Aroma of citrus and grapefruit. Reflected know the taste. A much more refreshing ipa than most coming from the US. Floral and passionfruit flavours on the tongue also. Perfect for summer. A little too sweet though
