This India Pale Ale is a single batch release brewed by our crew in Fremantle, Western Australia. In celebration of a hop that helped make craft beers great, we have used only Cascade hops throughout the brewing process - in the kettle, whirlpool and hopback. At 55IBU this is a beer with some serious hopping.

Nice English style IPA. Orange color with light brown head. Grapefruit, orange, lemon and big sweet biscuit nose and taste. Not overly bitter but more sweet. Not bad and still maybe the best single batch they have done

Bottled, thanks baggio! Hazy amber, mid sized head. Mild fruity citrus aroma.Medium bodied with fairly soft mouthfeel. Nice peach/grapefruit flavours from the hops. Bitter finish.

568ml bottle. Surprised that this wasnt as big as I thought this would be. Not quite as special as the label would make it out to be but it was wonderfully drinkable and would make a great addition to the range permanently.

568ml bottle. Rich golden colour with a thick set dirty snow coloured head. Massive piney hop aromas leap out of the glass and send you into a sense of anticipation. Like the aroma the flavour is massive and exceptional and fills every part of the mouth. No better way to spend a Saturday afternoon.

Bottle. Very much in the english style IPA. Surprised by the 55 IBUs, the malt very much more emphasised. Very nice.

Mepicantime (1) - Warners Bay, AUSTRALIA - MAY 4, 2010 does not count
1st taste from the Pint Sized bottle was fantastic, problem was I followed it up with Meantimes IPA & found it way below the mark of what I had hoped it to be. But in saying that a great effort from the boys @Little Creatures. Strong use of cascade left a nice but small explosion of passionfruit & grapefruit & a nice long after taste of caramel & toffee flavours. On tap @The Mary Ellen Hotel, Merewether, cant do it justice by rating it after a day @the races drinking mass produced soap water that is Tooheys Extra Dry. Will rate it on tap this week sometime.

bluebetty (1021) - AUSTRALIA - APR 26, 2010
Bottle. Pours a deep golden orange with nice cream coloured head. Some lacing as it falls away. Typical US hop aromas of grapefruit and pine with some malt sweetness. Not quite as assertive as I would have thought. Initial flavours of sweet malt and plenty of bitterness. The bitterness is a little aggresive though. Have to agree with other reviews about this being very similar to the pale ale. Good beer just not great

quite nice but nothing hugely standout. while the beer is definately well made and balanced. i would personaly be looking for a little bit more bang for my buck as far as IPAs go. love the cascade! 55ibu, you sure...?
