2.65/5 rDev -29.9%
12 oz bottle. Pours hazy light golden amber with a medium creamy white head that retains well and laces the glass.
The aroma is biscuity malts and sugary candied tropical fruits and a little resiny hops.
The flavor is sweet vegetal biscuity malts and some ripe tropical fruit with a resiny grassy hop finish. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with smooth carbonation.
Overall, an OK IPA. I don't really care for the mix of flavors.

The beer pours a golden-orange color with a white head. The aroma is full of orange citrus and biscuit malt. The flavor is a little more complex. The biscuit malt comes through up front, but the hops also are present with some orange and pine. The bitterness is fairly low, but the hop flavor comes through. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Pours an effervescent amber with a pinky of cream colored head. Good head retention & average lacing
S: Pineyness & breadyness, the nose is the really only area that needs more improvement
T: Pineyness. orange & tangerine peel with a touch of woody hops as well up front with just a touch of biscuitty malt. Grapefruit & woody hops dominates as this warms, faint toffee notes as well. Finishes with herbal hopyness & some nice grassy & citrussy notes; almost pulled 4.5
MF: Medium bodied with fairly firm carbonation, really pushes the hoppyness along, good balance
A really good AIPA that I will buy more of, drinks too easy

New brewery to me, poured a stubby 12oz. bottle into an 8oz. cup.
Deep saturated orange color, slowly rising carb streams, a thin layer of creamy foam on the surface. A ring of lace in the glass and a patchy skim left behind after the first couple sips.
Orange citrus, biscuit and caramel malt in the aroma. Light florals.
Light hop bitterness, a little orange sweetness, caramel malt sweetness. Bitterness balances just enough, medium bodied with a medium level of carbonation. Pretty straight ahead, no frills IPA. One you've tasted before and will undoubtedly taste again. Not bad, just middle of the road.

The Lil' Helper is a very weak IPA and generally poor quality beer.
With a rich burnt orange color and a good head, Lil' Helper deceives visually what its sub-par performance on the tongue quickly reveals. This beer is virtually flavorless, which may be exactly what Mother's was going for but which leaves the patron unfulfilled.
