COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Youíre in for a helluva burly bite with this one. Motherís India Pale Ale is aggressively hopped in both the wort kettle and aging vessel for a sharp, clean bitterness and fragrant citrus hop flavors. Weíve instilled a mellow malt character as the backbone to balance the elevated alcohol and hop levels IPA lovers crave. Whether youíre an IPA loyalist or just sampling, youíve found yourself a great beer. So spend some quality time with Motherís Lilí Helper.

OKplus (787) - Oklahoma, USA - JUN 11, 2013
12oz served in a Sam Adams perfect pint glass. A - A crystal clear amber body with a moundy off-white head. Average retention with very little lacing. S - Sweet Mandarin orange, bready malt, hints of green grass. T - Nice caramel/toffee malt, slightly roasted, doughy bread, sweet tangerines, very light green pine in the background. The pine picks up and starts building bitterness around the edges of the tongue finishing bitter with a kiss of citrus and honey sweetness. M - Very smooth and creamy feel, medium soft carbonation, crisp finish. Not super complex but this is one of the smoothest drinking IPAís Iíve had. It was hard to drink it slow. Good all around. I would definitely drink this again. Serving type: bottle 09-25-2012

dangermutant (11) - Arkansas, USA - JUN 11, 2014
Aroma is a hint of citrus. Appearance is a copper golden hue. Poured a nice 2-3 finger head from bottle. Nice lacing. Taste is a pleasantly bitter citrus , not over whelming. Almost a malty backbone. Overall a good IPA, very sessionable. Worth a try.

alexanderj (3297) - Gilbert, Arizona, USA - MAY 21, 2014
Bottle; poured a copper color with an almost creamy head. Strong aroma of earth, herbs, citrus and sugary malt. Fairly unique flavor with some candi sugar qualities that worked well. Sweet. Some herbal and earthy notes. Liked this one

tompete (206) - Tillsonburg, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 18, 2014
On tap in Columbia MO at the Stadium Grill. Dark gold with a thin white head. Aroma if citrus and malt. Flavours of grass and bitter hops, but smooth. Not harsh bitterness. Finish is strangely sweet and bitter at the same time. Body is nicely thin; not too thin for the style.

RABinCO (1135) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - MAY 4, 2014
Bottle(s) from a sixer bought @ Gomerís midtown in KC and then pounded in our La Quinta hotel room after a 9 hour drive. Poured into styrofoam hotel room cups. Nice light gold pour, real fluffy white head. Aroma of grass, sugar, orange, grapefruit, bubblegum. Taste is grapefruit, grass, lemon zest, a bit of soap, sweet without being too sugary or sticky. Real easy drinking on a warm day.

335 ml bottle. Standard double ipa, citrus and pine, nothing too fantastic though.

troyc (2422) - Illinois, USA - APR 19, 2014
[Bottle] Pours copper in color with a small white head. Piney bitterness up front in the nose. A good amount of hop bite in the taste too. Highly carbonated. Noticeable alcohol. The alcohol mixes with a grainy astringency to leave a dry and somewhat harsh finish. Just OK in my mind. Tasting notes from 11/2011.

kevinator (841) - The Colony, Texas, USA - APR 17, 2014
Good IPA. Strong citrus and floral hop aroma. Golden to amber color with what appeared to be substantial carbonation. Crisp clean palate that matched the carbonation to the bitterness. More citrus hop flavor with a subtle malt background that balanced without much sweetness. Good drinkiní beer.

kansascityCW (108) - kansas city, Missouri, USA - APR 1, 2014
Looks great, but not much at all in the aroma. Taste is slightly better but still pretty bland for an IPA. Good mouth feel. Enjoyable, just not a world class IPA.

fiercepanda (505) - Missouri, USA - MAR 14, 2014
A clear copper beer with a medium off-white head. The aroma is resinous hops and tropical fruit. The flavor is the same with a slightly tart finish.
