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

I love IPAs but some can leave a really strong after-taste. This beer smells good, tastes good but doesn't stick around longer than invited. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This is a pretty decent IPA. It is orange and slightly cloudy and has a large long-lasting head or mixed bubbles. It is slightly sweet and sticky with lots of mandarin orange, pine and melon. It has creamy carbonation and the sweetness is balanced w/ firm bitterness in the finish. Personally, I prefer my IPAs a bit drier but as this is brewed as a midwest IPA--which I take to mean itís in the style of Bellís Two Hearted--it pretty much hits the mark dead on.

Copper color, dissipating white head. Nice hoppy smell with caramel undertows. Easy on the taste buds, no bitterness, almost slightly sweet.

gururyan (599) - Stillwater, Oklahoma, USA - JUL 24, 2014
Poured from bottle into snifter, classic orange IPA look, biting aroma (a good thing). This is a "mid" west coast IPA, and it honestly has a unique spin on it. Quite sharp, clean, bright with some citrus. I like this. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a clear ruby reddish orange with a slight white head. Aromas of mango, tangerine and grapefruit are light. Taste isnít too bitter, some alcohol shines through. Medium plus body.

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 (3313) - Branson, Missouri, 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 (209) - 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 (1248) - 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.
