According to well versed folklore, a red sky at night was a reassuring vision for those that spent their days toiling at the mercy of Mother Nature’s whims. Today, a stunning sunset serves more as the perfect accompaniment to a day’s end ale than a guide to fair weather ahead. With that in mind, this hop mad Red IPA is as captivating as the night sky, with our most lavish hopping regime to date. The resulting heady spice citrus aromas and lasting dry bitterness is balanced with a malt bill delivering depth of flavour and a distinct copper-orange hue that would provide any weary shepherd with plenty of delight.

A reasonably good looking beer. No real aroma, good hop presence upfront but this abates way too quickly. OK but not the best amber/RIPA around.

From what I remember this was described to me by the bar tender as the best beer he had had in ages. It was tasty refreshing and had a nice balance of hops and malt with some flavours coming through nicely but not sure about the best beer bit. Enjoyable but not anything mind blowing. Would make for a nice session beer with this seasons rugby.

Pours amber ruby with light off white head and distinct lace. Sweet malt aromas, toasty bread and pitted fruits, balanced with citrusy grassy hops. Medium light body. Light butterscotch, medium bitterness over a toasty sweet malt body lingering lightly sweet and toasted through the long finish

Pours rosy red with dissipating head. Aroma is spicy hop with a hint of citrus. Flavour is heavily hopped with little malt flavour to speak of ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Very nice beer from the Little Creatures Brewery. From Bottle at Brewhouse Brisbane. Nice smooth flavours and aroma, one of the best Red IPA’s I’ve ever had. Too bad it’s just a single batch.

I really enjoy this beer. Medium amber in colour with good head retention. Aroma of toffee and caramel with some citrus and spicy hop aroma, good depth of aroma too. Medium bodied palate with plenty of malt flavour backed up with a good balancing bitterness. There is a good hit of hop flavour too making for an easy drinking beer. A very enjoyable beer.

Imperial Pint Deep orange amber color. One finger off white head that slowly fades off. Little bit of streaky lacing with this. Large caramel backbone nose followed by orange peel, some pine, grapefruit and other tropical fruits. Slightly spicy in the first few snifs but it is brief. whacked upside the head with a hep of malt. Bread and caramel off the bat. Slightly spicy hop, and orange marmalades that do grow in the palate but otherwise reserved. Oily and slick. Decent amount of booze for what this is. Some lively carbonation in the back of the mouth but the malt really dominates. Not a bad amber and a decent effort for what this is ment to be. Some flaws though

Pleasant hop aroma, clear red body with half decent head, body was a balance of malt and hops that was balanced, without too much punch, very pleasant.
