Mother Earth Opens ’23 with Idol Worship HIPA

Fresh off a third straight year of rotating Hazy IPAs from their Project X Series, Mother Earth announced their next artist-inspired brew to kick off the new year. Idol worship takes cues from former brews in the series, erring on the side of west-coast inspired hazies the brewery has become recognized for.

“We’ve learned a lot over the last few years about striking the right balance in terms of flavor and appearance in these beers,” said Chris Baker, Director of Brewing Ops for Mother Earth Brew Co. “Upping the ABV allowed us to push the hops a bit harder while avoiding any unclean bitterness, and turning up the wheat gives us some extra body and haze without having to back-sweeten with lactose which can be common for the style.”

Mother Earth’s latest HIPA also boasts all New Zealand and Australian Hops – Nelson Sauvin, Galaxy, and Vic Secret all set the tone with ample tropical fruit aroma and flavor that include passion fruit, mango, lychee, kiwi, and pineapple. Idol Worship is available at Mother Earth’s Idaho tasting rooms in Boise and Nampa, and will roll out to distribution throughout January in 16oz cans and draft.
