Mother Earth’s newest release, Cognitive Aerobics, marks the halfway point of the brewery’s rotating Hazy IPA series for 2021.
The new release comes in packaging that features the acrylic work of San Diego-based abstract artist, Michael Carini.
Weighing in at 7.2% ABV and 28 IBUs, Cognitive Aerobics has aromas and flavors of tropical fruit, navel orange, lemon peel and melon, the company reports.
“With a 50/50 mix of New Zealand and PNW hops, we were able to capture some of the fruitier and juicier qualities and integrate them with some of the well-known attributes of old school IPA hops, which tend to produce more citrus and dankness in the beer,” says Director of Brewing Ops at Mother Earth, Chris Baker. “The combination leads to a really even palate from front to back without any use of lactose to achieve body and palate fullness.”
Cognitive Aerobics is available in 16-oz. cans and on draft where independent craft beers are sold, or at the Mother Earth tasting room in Nampa, ID.
