Mother Earth Brewing- Sisters of the Moon IPA: Double, double toil and trouble? Find out what these hot little Pagans are brewing….

When I tell people that I write for a beer blog they always want to know what the best part about it is? I used to just say, “Well, the beer I guess.” But as time has gone on I realize that the beer lover’s community is really what I enjoy the most, especially the fact that I have had the privilege of trying dozens of beers that I never would have had without the kickbacks from my fellow review crew members. I have had beers from all over the world that have delighted my senses and I feel honored to try some of the beers I have tried.

Sisters of the Moon IPA falls into this category. Jason picked this up on his trip to N. Carolina. This brew from Mother Earth Brewing pours a hazy citrine with a moderate amount of carbonation. The lacing on my glass was minimal with the creamy eggshell head dissipating rather quickly. I quickly feel in love with the mouthwatering aroma. SOTM has a sweet grain punch duct-taped to a citrusy hop explosion.  

WOW. Mother Earth has something special here. The only way I can really describe this beer is a game of taste bud tug-o-war. The initial flavor is a sweet graininess. That flavor tries to cling on for dear life but is quickly beatdown by a citrus/ pine hop smackdown. This brew starts sweet and finish intense. The end is actually very dry with the oily hops drying out your pallet.

I was actually terrified to review this bottle. The guys at Mother Earth were so freaking cool to Jason and he spoke so highly of them that my mind raced at the thought of this beer being a dud. Thankfully this beer is goddamn awesome and I am in peace. Honestly I can tell you I have never had an IPA quite like this and I have had hundreds of IPAs. This is a must try beer. I honestly cannot wait for my next endeavor from this impressive, young brewery.

ABV:  6.9%

Consumed: Ionic Pint Glass

Verdict: Buy a case!
