I have liked the beers I've tried from Vista's Mother Earth Brew Company, including Pin Up pale ale, Kismet IPA, and the Hop Digity and Primordial double IPAs. I was happy when I saw Mother Earth's latest bottled IPA, Boo Koo, on shelves.
Maybe it was Boo Koo's wheat component that confused me, and possibly brought out the mineral taste in the finish. ( I'm not a fan of wheat-based IPAs, and don't know how much wheat Mother Earth used in Boo Koo.) I've had several Boo Koos and will probably have more, so I clearly liked the beer at a base level. The initial pine blast alone will bring me back. If this beer was made by nearly any other brewer I'd probably give a better review, but my high opinion of Mother Earth left me expecting more.
