Mother Earth "Sisters of the Moon"
Mother Earth Brewing Company - Kinston, North Carolina USA
IPA (ABV 6.9%)

[Best served in a Shaker glass]

Rating: 3.7/5.0

Aroma: 6/10
Appearance: 3/5
Taste: 8/10
Palate: 4/5
Overall: 16/20

The pour was a cloudy golden amber with a slight yellow hue and an average sized (1-2 finger) white frothy head that was mostly lasting, receding to a large collar and large cap of foam thus creating some good sticky lacing.

The aroma was mild and had a slight fruitiness to it with straw malts, a floral hop and a moldy yeast with notes of caramel, toffee and citrus (grapefruit and orange peel).

The taste was ever so lightly sweet and a tad bitter with a hint of caramel at first, and then progressed into this extremely bitter flavor that was also a bit sour and had a note of grapefruit with a mildly sweet orange taste at the end. The flavor lingered for an average duration with the sweetly hoppy fruity flavor settling nicely on the taste buds.

Mouthfeel was a few steps above light in body with a good dry texture and a lively carbonation.

Overall a very well balanced IPA that had the mix of fruit and hops blending extremely well...
