first opening this beer its aroma was amazing. i had little hints of citrus fruits mixed with a delicate summer style fruit then the hops bleed through. tast was very diffrent to the smell you get a amazing hoppy taste with every mouth full becoming more taste involved. this single batch is awesome

got lucky and found a couple at dan murphy’s today.pours a beutiful golden colour with a thick white head that leaves some impressive lacing. aroma is lots of fruit peach,passionfruit and a little citrus with some sweet malts in the background. tastes even better than it smell’s with plenty of fruity and earthy hops without an unpleasent bitterness, all backed up by plenty of malty goodness.one of my favourite IPA’s, just wish they would do it again.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a nice copper with a head similar to the pale ale. Tropical fruits and hopy resin on the nose, a big citrus/resin flavour hit perfectly balanced with malt i cant believe this one is 7.8%. Its only 55 IBU which is low for an imperial but wow i would not change that at all, little creatures has done it again!

568ml bottle. This one is right up there amongst the great North American double IPA’s Solid in the glass with a weighty looking deep amber colour and aromas that leap out of the glass. Fills the mouth with flavour. Creamy smooth texture with a long piney aftertaste.

Lovely citrus adn tropcial furiot noce with nice bright light malts,
Body is quite thin making it quaffable, with excellent complex hop flavours from citrus to tropical and grassy, with a definite hint of alcohol crisp and sharp dry finich, perfect spring beer.
reminds me of Epic Hop Zombie

Bottle at Blackheart&Sparrows. Great mix of flavours. Aromas of caramel, butter, and grass. Taste is sweet, with sour and bitter notes, and very long length. Palate is velvety, and almost creamy. Amber, with a frothy head.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle - When I opened the bottle I took a quick whiff and the first thing thta can to mind was the gin botanicals! Pours a pale copper with next to no head. massive aroma of flowery hops and sweet caramel, some orange citrus as well. Very rich and full on the palate. The hops come through nicely along with the caramel malt. the finish is dry and lingering. Great beer!

Great beer. Smelt fruity but the taste was different, more hops. It was forgiving for the 7.8%, I didnt even notice the alcohol. A great beer, definitely my favourite little creatures effort so far.

Bottle from mane liquor. By far my favourite little creatures beer. Aromas full of lychee, grapefruit, pine and tropical hops. Huge tropical fruit hop presence! Taste is a tropical fruit bowl with a caramel malt backing. Nice long crisp bitterness. Don't notice the 7.8%. Massive beer love this!

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
From a 568ml bottle on 25/10/2011. Pours a clear light golden with a small head. Has a lovely floral, tropical fruit (particularly passionfruit) aroma. Flavour wise, you get orange, marmalade and a bit of grapefruit. It has a solid hop presence, though it’s quite subdued for something described as a DIPA. This is a very enjoyable beer, and quite quaffable. Strikes me as being more of a standard IPA than a double/imperial.
