You can be excused for not knowing Mother Earth Brewing Co. because apparently they’ve existed primarily as a homebrew supply store, and only since 2010. But they do bottle and distribute beer. Boo Koo IPA is the first beer of theirs I’ve ever seen or tasted, and I’m always a sucker for a new beer.
Boo Koo strays from the other IPAs of the San Diego region (where Mother Earth is based) by coming across the palate as soft and subdued. This would never pass muster at hop-crazy Stone; but that’s perfectly okay. The finish is balanced, if lacking a certain distinction.
I score it 3.5/5. A very respectable effort and definitely worth a try. Some beer snobs may find it tame for San Diego IPA, but it has enough character to be worthy.
