We all aspire to be a little ‘extra’ in life and Little Creatures’ latest Single Batch release delivers on this desire with a cranked up version of its signature Pale Ale, Extra Pale Ale.
The first Single Batch beer to come out of the Little Creatures brewery in 2018, Extra Pale Ale is the result of the Little Creatures brewers upping the ante on their signature Pale Ale.
Despite what people may think, the recipe has remained unchanged since the Fremantle brewery opened its doors back in 2000. All the components of the traditional Pale Ale have been dialed up to deliver extra flavour and aroma, resulting in a little extra kick as well.
“We thought it would be good to take the path of evolving our much beloved Pale Ale by adding in a little extra of everything. This beer is about delivering the extras on a beer style we know and love,” said Russ Gosling, Head Brewer at Little Creatures Fremantle.
“There are liberal additions of Cascade and Willamette and Chinooks hops, as well as a dose of dry hops. As it hits your taste buds, citrus, grapefruit and pine hoppy goodness fill your mouth,” added Gosling.
The latest in a line-up of limited release beers recently produced by Little Creatures, Extra Pale Ale continues the brand’s commitment to deliver innovation in brewing for their customers.
“Our limited release beers started out as a fun way for the Little Creatures brewers to experiment and evolve through experimenting with different ingredients, styles and flavours based on seasons and trends and give our customers something a little bit different,” said Gosling.
“For seasoned Creatures Hop Heads, the Extra Pale Ale might take them back to the days before IPAs became a staple in the fridge and back to a time when they were first discovering the magic of hops,” said Gosling.
On sale from 12 February 2018, Extra Pale Ale Single Batch is available from the Little Creatures Fremantle and Geelong breweries and for purchase in all leading beer loving stores.
