New world hops experience. Extraordinary hoppy beer, bringing in the totality of New World hops. Very lacy, bold but not palate erasing citrus
hops. Hop forward, comes on like 60 or higher ibu. A must try for hop fans, or most of us. Incredibly drinkable. Bomber from SD. I return the favour by circling Mother Earth for a visit in my next California trip.

On tap at Mother Earth Brew Co. in Vista, CA.

Pours a clear copper with a tan head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Small streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of herbal and floral hops with some subtle malt aromas. Taste is of spicy herbal hops and citrus zest up front with a slight malt finish. There is a mild bitterness on the palate after each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good IPA that is pretty tasty.

Pours a tawny amber in the tall Peroni glass. Fabulous aroma of flowery hops is the highlight. Plenty of carbonation and chunks of head slip down your throat on the first gulp.

A hint of sugar cookies but quickly buried under the huge hops. Deep pine in the nose. Not so much malt but enough for soft edges and a little sweetness. Fruity and full of citrus, but quite bitter. Great hop flavor and aroma that should be tasted by any San Diego area hophead.

From the 22 oz bottle bought at Liticker's Liquor & Deli in Ocean Beach.

Clear orange color with off-white head. Aroma has some bright hops with tropical fruit flavors. Taste has also nice fruity hop flavors, not too bitter, really hoppy and tasty. Medium body and carbonation, quite smooth. Really well made, easy drinking, aromatic IPA.

A - A beautiful looking beer. Deep orange amber, relatively creamy mixed-bubbled head with awesome lace and nice retention.

S - Wow, the nose really pops. Bright peat and lemon. Sharp, earthy plant stems.

T - Big plant-like bitterness with an edge that's almost sour. Potpourri center. Dry earthy backend.

M - Bright with a smooth, medium body.

O - The flavor profile is a shade too earthy for my liking, and the plant flavors feel a little raw.

From 12/12/13 notes, Thanks to Nugganooch for sharing a bottle of this; thanks Dane. 22 oz. bottle poured into a tulip.

a - Pours a deep amber-red color with one inch of off white head and moderate carbonation evident.

s - Smells of nelson hops, grapefruit, light pine, citrus hops, fruity malts, floral hops, and light bread malts. Lots of hops, smells fruity and fresh; I like it a lot.

t - Tastes of citrus hops, floral hops, fruity malts, bread, wheat, grains, and toasted malts. Nice but not as hoppy as the nose was. No bitterness in the taste.

m - Medium body and low to moderate carbonation. No bitterness at all which is very nice.

o - Overall a pretty nice DIPA. Nose is great and hoppy, though the taste loses a little bit from the nose. Easy to ddrink and no bitterness, worth checking out.

Can from Boise Co-op. Pour from can starts off rather average, aroma kicks it up a notch with some nice flowery hop notes. Taste elevates the whole with very pungent, flavorful, floral, piney hops, carried on a slick, viscous body. Hoppy and tasty, overall feel is wonderful.

On tap at Mother Earth.

A: Burnished golden orange with good clarity and an inch of white foam. Retention is good and lacing is all over the glass.

S: Aromatic orange, grapefruit, peach, and tangerine. I get a little white grape and faint tropical notes. Malt is light and bready.

T: Moderately bitter with bright notes of grapefruit and tangerine. Malt imparts a dash of short lived sweetness and a little cracker. The citrus profile is great. White grape is faint.

M: Upper light body with upper medium carbonation.

Overall: Really good. One of the best I've had from Mother Earth.
