COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is a huuuuge beer. Brewed for Urge Gastropub with all NZ Nelson, Big Mother is a worthy adversary to its Imperial counterparts: “The beer pours a slow-burning ember hue, exhibiting great clarity and a bouquet that, with its papaya, mango, and passion fruit notes, is like sticking one’s nose in a gift basket full of tropical fruit. The real treat comes on the first sip. Pronounced grapefruit notes hit first, giving way to a semisweet roundness, followed by a finish with savory hints of deeply brûléed sugar.” -Brandon Hernández, San Diego Reader Magazine

I really didn’t get all the tropical fruit flavors that they’re claiming in this beer. It mostly just tasted like a very strong Ipa and was just okay

Great aroma of grapefruit and passion fruit. Very much passion fruit driven. Hops punch you at beginning and throughout. Long evolving finish with a little too harsh ending. Great for super hoppy beer drinkers. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft. Pours gold with a white head. Oily hop bitterness, some citrus and marmalade, and a little malty sweetness. A touch boozy, but not overly so given the ABV. Good stuff.

BuckeyeBoy (7680) - Boise, Idaho, USA - MAY 20, 2017
On tap at whole foods boise. Pours out golden topped with a white head. Nose is nice dank hops some extra ripe topical fruits and a sweet malt. Taste is more of the nice hops and a rich malt back bone.

Bomber from Casa De Oro. Very dank dry nose. Huge bitter hoppiness up front. Quite dank. A touch of a metallic twang to it. Moderate tropical notes hiding under the massive skunked hoppiness. Big brew with a good flavor profile.

IndianaRed (4627) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUL 22, 2016
On Tap at Growler Guys, Meridian Hazy deep golden orange fine lasting thin head and even coating of lacing. On the first sip, heavy thick almost chewey malt body. Tons of sharp up front puthy hops. Some light tropical fruit and then more big time resinous hopness. A very big beer, smooth and heavy.

Citra and Nelson Sauvin hops. 10.5% Bright clear gold beer, good cream colour head. Palate is light, mildly dry and has good fine carbonation. Light malts with a nice light level of sweetness. Touch of hop skunk, really pretty mild. Cooling pine. Reasonable hop spice. Spicy citrus and a little marmalade. Trace of Nelson grape and light floralness. Light crisp finish. An impressively light and clean DIPA, it drinks very easy for it’s double digit abv. Just wanted more punch and complexity.

stevoj (5043) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUN 13, 2016
Grunt from Winco. Deep golden body, thick, creamy head. Hops overtake aroma and follows through in taste with some nice oily bitterness. Yes, dank comes to mind. Finishes with equal parts caramel malts and funky hops. Hard to believe it’s 10.5%.
