From Growler to pint glass – Thanks Bro!
*Notes taken on 11/17/12
A: Auld Knucker pours a clear light copper caramel color. Nice finger and a half of khaki foam head with ample stay power. Stick leaves a halo upon the glass at each sip throughout the drink.
S: Smell has a real orchard fruit character to it that is reminiscent of ripe apricot and peach. Behind that is a light caramel malt presence. Rather tame nose overall.
T: Taste confirms the aromas with a pronounced stone fruit profile. I get fresh apricot and peach with a light citrus fruit dusting and some lesser notes of earthy herbs. There is a mellow amount of actual bitterness to the palate which is nice and offers balance. Malt brings a gentle dry cracker base with a touch of caramel sweetness. Alcohol seems very well integrated as it is barely noticeable. Smooth drink but nothing incredibly impressive.
M: Light moderate body with a relatively creamy consistency. Crisp carbonation brings a nice drying lift to the finish. There is a reserved amount of hop residue.
D: This is a nice IPA. Sessionable and well crafted with some very clean flavors. Has great balance but a little forgettable for me.

Pours a crystal clear amber into the glass, vigorous pour will net a huge fluffy three finger head. Decent retention and very attractive loosely piled lacing.
Mild and doughy malt, cookie sweetness equally balanced with a solid pine and generic citrus hop aroma. Oily and resiny but bright. Really need to get your nose in there but really pleasant.
Balanced as it can get for an ipa, graham crackers and cracked wheat, warm biscuit sweetness with an inviting hop push back with pine, resin, tangerine citrus, lemon and grassy notes. Lightly bittering that dries appropriately. Leaves the door slightly open for alcohol to sneak in.
Tame carbonation, very smooth with easy to put down body. Drinkable.
A very balanced ipa, this is Mother Earth's Primodial before it got messed up with the higher alcohol. Very balanced and notably clean and drinkable. Bottle art is fantastic. Not as unique as Kismet IPA but also very well crafted.

Poured into a snifter.
Appearance: White head that decently rises. After settling, there is still a light head present. The beer is a beautiful yellow to orange to red color, perfect for an IPA. When put up to the light the ale glows yellow, but as the glass sits on a table appears a deep orange-red.
Aroma: The beer has a nice pine and hops aroma with a hint of citrus. After warming some I believe a bit of a floral tones become present with the brew. Overall it's enjoyable.
Taste: A crisp beginning that turns slightly hoppy/piney towards the middle and ends real clean. There's a piney and slightly citrus aftertaste, but nothing too extreme.
Mouth-feel: Light with some crisp carbonation up front, just the way an IPA should be.
Overall Impression: I might be more recently leaning towards trying imperial/double IPA brews, but this beer feels a little mild on the IPA scale. It's still a definite IPA, but would be a great introductory beer to people who haven't tried many IPAs, especially California style. Overall, very enjoyable, although I still enjoy their Kismet IPA a bit more, as I feel like Mother Earth Brew Company has put their own touch to it. Glad more of their beers are becoming more available in a bottle though.

Pours a bright golden orange. Big white sudsy foam head.
Smells like grapefruit, some mandarin orange. A bit of grass/earthiness to it, but it's primarily a citrus-forward beer.
Tastes like it smells. Grapefruit, some pine rinds, a bit of earthy mineral zest. More bitter than I would have expected given the aroma. Pleasant. Not overwhelmingly awesome, but a good solid IPA. I wish more of the citrus/fruit content had carried over to the flavor.
Nice pleasant, fluffy mouthfeel.

On tap at Stone. Mother Earth is a new Nanobrewery located in north county San Diego. I've heard of them but this is the first time I've had their beer.
The beer is a splendid deep orange with a thick pillowy white head, good retention, and scattered lacing. In the aroma I find notes of grapefruit rind with a hint of flesh. Notes of orange flesh and pith are also evident. There's a distinct floral bouquet that I normally associate with Saaz or Sterling hops, though I doubt these were used. Regardless, I do observe such qualities.
The flavor displays the same grapefruit prominence I observed in the aroma and it's to such an extent that this might be construed as simple or one note, but it's quite enjoyable, just not bursting with exotic tropical fruits. There are subtle notes of orange as well. Bitterness is at a pleasantly sessionable moderate level. No alcohol is noticeable. The beer is light medium bodied and the mouthfeel is dry with a restrained stickiness. The more I drink this, the more prominent the orange character becomes, and the more I drink this, the more I enjoy it. I guess it's not really one note. I revoke that statement as the beer has opened up it has waxed in complexity.
An enjoyable and thoroughly drinkable IPA from a new brewery. Recommended. This is sessionable, in a specific sense of the word.
