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.
