Little creatures IPA


imageIt was high time little creatures branched off and started creating a range for themselves. The pale ale, bright ale and the pilsner were starting to die off, but this new addition should keep us hop heads happy for a while. Served in an IPA glass the slightly hazy golden-orange pour whips up a white 1 inch head that eventually settles to a halo with patchy foam on top. OK lacing. Wow, this aroma absolutely blows the pale ale out of the water, big dominant wafts of grapefruit, lychee, white grapes, pine resins, coriander and cedar monster over the caramel malt base which tries desperately to be heard. Brilliant aroma. In the mouth it’s smooth with a slick texture. Medium carbonation and body. The taste buds instantly come alive with an explosion of citric grapefruit upfront. Backing up is a lovely hint of lychee that picks up a hint of soothing caramel in the mid-palate. The assertive hop dryness arrives late but kicks on well through to the finish with a delicious herbal flavour that endures well. The 6.4% ABV acts as the formwork for the arsenal of flavours to present themselves on. Wow, we never thought little creatures had it in them to brew something of this calibre. This is a top notch IPA.
