Cant believe there is not more love for this beer. Lovely hop aroma and hop taste, lots of pine and grass and well balanced malt and bitterness. Akin to a hop hog. Ive had better, but typically not from something that is available from your average bottle-o.
Quite a step up from Little Creatures who have been dishing out a standard short list of middle of the road stuff for some time now.

A - Crystal clear. Dark amber. Very low carbonation. Small dissipating head

S - Small notes of pine and citrus . Unacceptable aroma for an IPA. I may have gotten an old batch.

T - Good session beer taste. Perfect amount of bitterness. Malt flavors are there but stay way back as they are suppose to. Lacking some flavor hops and again a lack of aroma gets in the way of the taste.

M - Great mouthfeel. Light bodied but has a good feel. May need slightly more carbonation.

O - Good session style IPA. Definitely restrained and will appeal to a typical drinker.

The LIttle Creatures IPA follows the typical English style IPA...more bitter with subtle hints of citrus. The beer poured a golden clear with white head that laced. The scent was typical...bitter hops. The mouthfeel was medium in body with good carbonation. Overall its a fairly easy drinking beer....but I like their Pale and Bright much better.

Pours amber with a fading head.
Nose shows tropical fruit, rich caramel and fruit confectionery.
Very similar flavours, more of the fruit and confectionery along with some of the sweet malt. Finishes with an assertive but balanced bitterness.
Carbonation seems a little high.

330ml bottle poured into pint glass 19/3/14

A slight haze in a amber orange body, lots of little bubbles but only a thick film for head, one thick ring where it existed

S grapefruit, orange and a little pine, smells a little malty, lots of brown sugar

T a little more I'd guess after a whiff, spicy and citric, pine's stronger, malt works well with the hops, has some balance going for it

M has a bite but not a palate wrecker, very gritty in the mouth, a sweet earthy finish

O smells a little faint but other then that I rather enjoyed this one, fairly well rounded and balanced

I'm a little surprised this one doesn't get more love, I bought a 4 pack and I'm happy to have a few more to drink

Poured from 33cL into a wine glass.

Dark orange-brown. Nearly opaque. Heavy lacing.

Phenomenal. Fruit. Pine. Loads of malt. Heavy on the fruit.

Hm. Slight letdown. Dry malt. Vegetal, earthy-spicy hops. Quite English.

Worthwhile. Though I think I might prefer the pale ale.
