The citrus and pine aroma are stronger than the initial flavor, which I appreciated. But this made the lingering presence of both flavors on the back end stronger than expected.

Pours an effervescent gold with a pinky of cream colored head. Good lacing & average head retention

S: Oranges, tangerines, some cattyness once warm

T: Follows the nose, plus a little bit of bready sweetness & grassyness up front. Some green melon comes through, along with a little dryness as this warms, just a little kiwi fruit & tangerine & sweet orange as well. Finishes sweet, a little dry with tangerine notes as well

MF: Medium body, creamy carbonation, good balance

Solid IPA that goes down easy

Flavor: bold, with loads of tropical fruit notes and faint bready grains.
Feel: Medium body with medium carbonation.

As promised, forest, pine, thrilling mosaic hop.
What is it about a beer that delivers such good mouth feel, with a twisty turning set of hops and malt that feels kissy and weighty while being refreshing. Flavor filled. Great feel. Try this.

12 oz. can:

Pours slightly hazed yellow with a fizzy white head that settles to a lasting wisp. Trailing vanishing lace slides down the glass.

The smell is of citrus (especially tangerine) with pine.

The taste is of tangerine, hint of pine. Bread/cracker backing. Hops stand out enough to fit a West Coast American IPA. Hop flavor dominates the finish.

A little fizz hits the palate, then mellows. Hits medium-bodied.

A pleasant, standard IPA that showcases the aroma and flavor of Mosaic hops. Enjoyable!

Poured from a 12 oz. can. Has a hazy golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is full of citrus, little else. Taste has lots of lemons, some grapefruit, a touch of malts,light bitterness. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall it's a decent beer.

Mother Earth Brew Co. "Boo Koo"
12 fl. oz. can, "GENESIS DATE 07/19/18 N237"
$1.83 @ Cherry Hill Wine, Liquor & Beer (Wegmans), Cherry Hill, NJ

Notes via stream of consciousness: It's poured a slightly hazy golden body beneath a two finger thick head of off-white foam. The aroma is citrusy and tropical with notes of orange, sweet malt, mild grapefruit, apricot, and pineapple. There's a sweetness to it that makes it seem like a tropical candy. Moving forward, the flavor follows with orange dominating, but also some additional papaya and soft pine. The malt is grainy and lightly bready, and sweetish but not too sweet. Altogether it's a little like fruit ambrosia except that a firm bitterness reigns it in and eventually brings it to a dry conclusion. The alcohol never shows. Looking back I've still got a cream cap of foam, and there's some nice lacing about the glass. If I forgive the haze, and I'm going to because it's probably from dry-hopping, it scores a 4.25 out of 5. In the mouth it's medium bodied with a dextrinous edge, and smooth across the palate with a fine-bubbled, median carbonation. It's a nice beer to relax with. It's interesting, and different, and there's plenty of flavor to keep you satisfied.

12 oz can. Pours hazy golden with tall, long lasting, fluffy white head and lively carbonation. Aroma is of citrusy hops, breadymalt and tropical fruit. Body is medium and crisp. Herbal, citrusy hops, bready malt, cotton candy and tropical fruit fill the mouth. Finish is long and dry. OK brew.
