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

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.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
1 pint bottle. Pours a hazy burnished copper colour, with a medium off-white head, which lasts well and leaves good lacing. Pine resin, kiwifruit and floral hops notes sit on a base of nutty, toasty malt to create the aroma. Lime and kiwifruit hops up front give way to pine resin as they move through. Nutty malt and toffee flavours give it weight and body. Strong pine resin hops and toffee malt make up the finish, and leave a pine aftertaste. The real strength of an India red ale, I feel, is in the combination of potent hops and a weighty malt body. This beer achieves that combination very nicely. Another good single batch effort from Little Creatures.
