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 youll also detect aniseed and savoury notes, balanced out with a long firm bitterness to finish.

BDD89 (12) - young, - 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.

jmgreenuk (9157) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - MAY 25, 2017
Tap at Cookie, Melbourne. Poured a crystal clear medium amber with a thin white head. The aroma is malt, grassy citrus fruit hop. The flavour is moderate bitter with a crisp, fresh, fruity woody hop bitter palate and a long bitter finish. Medium bodied with average carbonation.

Sweet, caramel, fruity IPA. Hazy golden in colour, light aroma of hops. Sweet, thick hop flavour. Not too bitter or abrasive. Sticky.

danjs5 (212) - AUSTRALIA - FEB 24, 2017
UPDATED: FEB 24, 2017 Best Little Creatures ale, way ahead of pale ale and then there is the rest of the LC range. Pours a golden colour with thin head. Sweet and quite pungent fruity hoppy aroma. Upfront hops with fruits and a kick back of straw and earthy malt tones in the back palate. Surprisingly sturdy body and reasonably robust malt flavour for pleasant bitterness. Lasting flavour. Enjoyable.

(330ml bottle) Pours a lightly hazy golden body with a medium white head. Aroma of orange, bread, caramel, earth, pine, and grass. Flavor of orange, caramel, grapefruit, bread, and pine with a dry, bitter finish.

Tezminator (204) - AUSTRALIA - DEC 14, 2016
Nice aroma of citrus. Mainly citrus fruits, grape fruit being the most distinctive flavour. Hint of pine, and faint caramel notes from the malt. Moderately bitter finish. Great balanced beer, but I like my IPAs bigger.

Kauge (1902) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 10, 2016
Bottle at Puu in Tallinn. No BB date. Sweet, pungent, caramelly. Strange, I found it to be distinctly Australian, despite my little experience with Australian beers. An alright, albeit not typical, IPA.

HKdIPA (783) - HONG KONG - NOV 26, 2016
Bottle from Winecraft at home on rainy day. Hazy golden orange pour with dense frothy head. Aroma is light orange citrus with apple and spice. Taste is rich citrus bitterness and apple with significant smooth malt. Subtle lasting bitterness. Palate is rich but not heavy. Interesting. Not big flavor but not bad at all for a lighter IPA with rich body.
