The Little Brewing Company Fastidious Bastard IPA
NOTE: Beer is on or past marked best before date.
Brewery: The Little Brewing Company
Style: India Pale Ale (IPA)
Format: 330ml Bottle
Our head brewer's a fastidious bastard. So are the rest of our brewers. If you're not a fastidious bastard you don't get the gig, and we are particularly fastidious when it comes to our India Pale Ales. "Fastidious Bastard IPA" pays homage to the very hoppy and bitter India Pale Ales in the American West Coast style. Hoppy aromas and flavours of pine, citrus, spice and resin entice the senses, before a long bitter finish.
WHAT OTHER CUSTOMERS ARE SAYING
Great to see local Australian brewers pushing out this sort of quality!
It's always great to see beers of this quality coming out of Australia. This certainly rivals many of the IPAs coming out of the US.
Taste wise, the fruit flavours from the hops burst through but are well balanced by the malt profile which does linger nicely. Bitterness is spot on for the style, and smooth enough that you could drink a bunch of these without a problem.
Hoppy tropical fruit and pine aromas. Apricot mango orange grapefruit & pine notes. Viscous mouthfeel. Bitter slight drying finish. Love it!
