Little Bang Love Bomb Oat Cream DIPA

Little Bang Brewing

Published May 13, 2022

Bombs away!! Little Bang are about to start dropping love bombs across the country with a new beer for which they've given one of their brewers free rein over recipe development and the entire brewing process. Stepping up to the oche is the most recent addition to the team, Cameron Sproule – aka Camo – who's opted for a style that's been very much in fashion in the noisier parts of the Australian craft beer world for the past couple of years: an oat cream double IPA sitting at a hefty 8.2 percent ABV.

Love Bomb is built upon an interesting malt structure featuring slightly sticky-sweet West Coast style crystal malts that fall short of chewy and instead lend a certain light softness to the mouthfeel. You'll detect a little creaminess on the nose, swirling in a pool of juicy orange, tangerine citrus, and apricot stone fruit aromas courtesy of Idaho 7, Azacca, Citra and El Dorado hops. Those orange / tangerine vibes dominate the apricot to taste, while any bitterness is suited to the style: barely there, with Love Bomb instead caressing your palate with a little sweetness and citrus all the way.
