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

CervezaCabeza (46) - Le Mans, FRANCE - APR 12, 2015
Pours a cloudy burnt gold color. Generous white head with nice lacing. Aroma is pine, juniper, grapefruit, with some malty caramel notes. Delicious floral flavor balanced with a nice malt backbone. Full bodied strong IPA.

johnnnniee (2730) - Bedford, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 29, 2015
Bottle from Bigtreebrewing. Hazy deep golden color with a smallish bone white head. Toffee, earthy , mineral and a hint metallic on the nose. Bitter butterscotch and earthy hop flavor. Medium body moderate to high carbonation. Decent enough IPA but not horribly exciting.

bookman10 (718) - Osseo, Minnesota, USA - JAN 4, 2015
Less of an IPA than an APA. More malt flavor and grassiness than I usually want from an IPA. Not much in the way of hop bite or citrus flavor. But if this was listed as an APA, it would be pretty outstanding.

UPDATED: NOV 25, 2014 Had this one on draft, going on memory. I liked it because for all the IPA’s that try to overwhelm you with hops, this one is just refreshing and well made. I didn’t find it bitter at all. I’m a hop head but appreciated how this one is made. I could drink a bunch of these.

monkeychugg55 (941) - Joliet, Illinois, USA - SEP 21, 2014
Light copper with a small white head. The aroma is that of grapefruit, pine, and caramel malt. The flavor is similar. Pretty easy drinking and has a fairly balanced finish. Pretty decent.

EyeAmBaldman (368) - Illinois, USA - SEP 9, 2014
Pours a light amber with a thin off white head. Aroma has an alcohol sweetness to it. Good carbonation on the tongue, at first, then itís gone. Taste is more like a Scottish ale, or an old ale to me rather than an IPA. The finish disappears so quickly itís almost non-existent.
