Mother Earth Brew Co. Rail Jam Hazy IPA up next in Project X

Mother Earth Rail Jam Hazy IPA

Mother Earth Rail Jam Hazy IPA is the latest entry in the brewery’s Project-X Series. Each release in the series is inspired by both brewer, and artist.

The artist is Matthew Perdoni, a visual artist based in North County San Diego. His passion for the arts started less with the comic book stories of Batman and Wolverine, but more with the illustrations themselves. Now his paintings and public artworks are well-known in San Diego.

Fans of artists and their stories, don’t skip on Perdoni’s interview with Mother Earth. 

Off the Rails Hazy IPA is a collaboration with Mother Earth’s Director of Brewing Operations, Christopher Baker, and the Vista Location Head Brewer, Bret Stitzman. A lot of the brewery’s hazy IPAs have been lactose-heavy juiciness. Apparently, in this release, the brewery dialed flavor profile back a bit, bringing a bit of balance to the beer, which – might actually seem like going off the rails in this day and age.

Rails features some heavy hop hitters- Cashmere, Lemon Drop, Galaxy, and Citra Hops.

The net-net is that Rail Jam drinks exceptionally smooth, with almost no pronounced bitterness to speak of with bright lemon-lime citrus qualities in addition to melon, peach, and tangerine.

Mother Earth Rail Jam Hazy IPA is available in 16-ounce cans for a limited time where the brewery’s limited releases are sold.

Style: Hazy IPA
Hops: Cashmere, Lemon Drop, Galaxy, Citra

Availability: 16oz Cans, Draft. Limited Release.
Debut: Late April 2021

Mother Earth debuts a hazy collaboration with Fremont Brewing

Mother Earth 4 Seasons Hazy IPA

When Mother Earth Brew Co. teams up with Seattle taste giant Fremont Brewing, expect a damn good beer.

First, let’s talk about the series. Four times a year, Mother Earth releases a seasonal beer, tied to the Earth’s four-ish seasons. (In the south, real winter is debatable. Don’t even get us started on whatever Florida calls seasons.)

For these hot months, Mother Earth Brew Co. and Fremont created a hazy IPA, that’s every bit the juice and haze you’d expect from the duo. Summer is a great time to debut this release, after all, the teams met originally on a fishing trip.

Further tying this beer to summer is an array off really rare hops (not grown in abundance), including African Queen from South Africa. The malt comes from a farmer-owned cooperative, LINC Malt out of Spokane, WA. We might be running a little low on descriptors for hazy IPAs so le us simply leave you with this. Don’t miss this release. You really CAN stand out in a crowded world of hazy beers, and Mother Earth and Fremont proved it.

Mother Earth 4 Seasons Hazy IPA is a limited summer seasonal in 16-ounce cans and draft. Don’t sleep on it.

Style: Hazy IPA
Hops: African Queen, Galaxy, Mosaic Cryo, El Dorado
Malts: 2 Row, Dextrin, Golden Naked Oats, Unmalted Wheat

Availability: 16oz Cans, Draft. Limited Release.
Debut: June 2019

7.5% ABV, 45 IBUs
