Mother’s India Pale Ale is aggressively hopped in both the wort kettle and aging vessel for a sharp, clean bitterness and fragrant citrus hop flavors. We’ve instilled a mellow malt character as the backbone to balance the elevated alcohol and hop levels IPA lovers crave. Whether you’re an IPA loyalist or just sampling, you’ve found yourself a great beer. So spend some quality time with Mother’s Lil’ Helper.

What a nicely balanced IPA. Probably the best part for me was the finish: super clean. This is an IPA that I can drink and drink. Nice, clean color. Could use a little more aroma, but that is just me. I enjoy alcohol in this range, enough but not too much. When I can road trip to find it, this may be my new IPA of choice.

Very aromatic hops...a mix of pine, floral, and citrus. Sweet maltiness is highly balanced with the hop bite. Citrus hops are mostly present and very drinkable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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

Fast becoming one of my favorite Midwest Coast IPAs - bold citrusy hops peek through an otherwise crisp and balanced flavor profile. Medium texture with a thick persistent head. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tap - good size foamy head, light-medium amber color, very nice hop flavor - better than expected!

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.

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.

Very enjoyable ipa with nice hops and a fresh flavor. Some malt backbone helps.

12 oz bottle poured into a tulip glass. Poured a clear amber with a two finger white head and great lacing. Aroma was hoppy with pine, citrus, and floral. Taste was citrus, pine, and sweet malt. Very good IPA.
