Notes / Commercial Description:
You’re in for a helluva burly bite with this one. 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.

Just a great beer and its a local brewery (for me). Perfect balance of hops, your not going to choke on the first sip. ABV of 7 which is my favorite amount in a 6 pack. This company make some great beer. You have to try the Winter Grind made with espresso coffee from the best local coffee roaster. Too bad its seasonal :(
