Mother Earth Kicks of Spring with Head Case HIPA

Mother Earth is kicking off Spring in style with the release of another Hazy IPA from their lauded Project X Series.

Head Case, as its aptly named for its manic cover art, is a Citra, Galaxy, and Mosaic-hopped HIPA that contains the program’s familiar malt base. Keeping with its familiar brand of West- coast-inspired hazies, the 45 IBU, 7.2% brew leans on a respectable, yet restrained bitterness that has become the hallmark of Project X releases of late.

“Combining modern hopping techniques along with the right yeast strain is critical to achieving the right balance of juicy-meets-clean. Head Case is the first beer we’ve brewed to feature our new crop year of Citra and Galaxy, which are showing really strong aromatics, especially in the tropical and stone fruit categories. In order to take advantage of this, we use hops in almost every part of the hot and cold side, including whirlpool, intra-fermentation, and dry-hop additions. Then, of course, our house ‘Juice’ yeast strain is used to give the beer a nice full body while not being overly sweet like some can be.”

Daniel Love – President, Mother Earth Brew Co.

As is customary with their rotating Artist-inspired series, Head Case displays the psychedelic stylings of Los Angeles-based artist, Michael Gustus. For more information on the beer and the artist, customers are encouraged to visit the brewery’s website at

Head Case HIPA rolls out throughout March and is available in 16oz cans and on draft at independent craft beer retailers and at Mother Earth’s Idaho tasting rooms. Customers are urged to search for Head Case using Mother Earth’s beer finder at
