Mother Earth Groove Rider kicks of new “Project X” Series

Mother Earth Groove Rider

California’s Mother Earth Brew Co. begins a new series: Project X: Beer + Art as August winds down.

This one-off series will feature limited release, specialty beers, focused what Mother Earth Brew calls “big impressions” from the first sip to last. This first release taps the very popular hazy India pale ale style.

Citra, Simcoe, Amarillo, and Nelson were chosen for Groove Rider to create an intensely aromatic hop experience.

Finishes dry enough to be West-Coast, but fruity enough to be East Coast. It’s everything you’d want from a hazy in 2019.

The can artwork was done by 48beerproject. The Project X: Beer + Art Series will be an ongoing indie artwork/brewing project.

Mother Earth Groove Rider is available across the entire brewery’s distribution footprint in 16-ounce cans and draft for a limited time starting at the end of August 2019.

Style: Hazy IPA

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

Wild Leap Alpha Abstraction Volume 7 features new French hop

Wild Leap Alpha Abstraction Volume 7

May brings the 7th edition of Wild Leap Brewing’s Alpha Abstraction Double IPA, a series hop heads should have checked out by now. The series is a blitz of everything a juicy IPA should be, mixed with a rotating cast of dank hops.

It was the 5th edition early this year that really blew us away – it’s hazy IPA done right. Late March brought the 6th edition, brewed with Lotus hops. This release features a hop most have never heard of – Barbe Rouge. The hop is native to France and boasts flavors of strawberry, blackcurrant and, cherry.

We shouldn’t have wait until the 5th release to try Wild Leap Alpha Abstraction

Wild Leap Alpha Abstraction 6, brewed with Lotus hops

Wild Leap Alpha Abstraction 6

Wild Leap Alpha Abstraction 6 is hitting shelves now, the 6th formulation of the brewery’s popular imperial IPA.

Last month, we finally tried our first Alpha Abstraction (#5) from Wild Leap and were thoroughly impressed. As some folks have probably learned the hard way, just because your IPA is hazy, it doesn’t make it good. Wild Leap’s Alpha Abstraction Series is exactly what have come to expect (and want) from this style.

Wild Leap Alpha Abstraction 6 is available in 12-ounce cans and draft for a limited time.
