COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
There is something really intriguing about a beer that is light in color, yet still infused with huge aroma and flavor, isnít there? It deceives the senses in a pleasant, yet completely surprising way; tasting great beer tends to be like that. So much of what we "expect" to taste, influences our opinion even before we actually do the tasting. Today, we ask that you set any preconceived notions aside so that you can take in the unexpected. A simple grain bill of pils, light crystal, and a bit of wheat, combined with a vigorous hop dosing of Mosaic and Simcoe make this beer just bookoo enough. Just donít call it "too bookoo!"

Sweet Hoppy Jesus. Boo Koo caught my attention instantly with its aroma (juicy, tropical, citrusy - heavily redolent of pineapple). I was also struck by the light-colored body. Boo Koo wasnít quite as pale as a White IPA, but it sure wasnít orange. Flavor was excellent. Crisp, dry, and balanced. The pineapple carries through. There are also touches of nectar, grapefruit, and grass. Basically, Iíd love to have a glass of this stuff next to me right now. Boo Koo has a weird name, but with flavors and complexity like this, I canít hold that against it.

Totally love this stuff. Aroma of grapefruit, meringue, oranges, melon and pine. Tastes about the same s the nose. This is one of the reasons I am glad that I live in SoCal.

Tap @ Bagby. Bright golden pour with a white head. Aroma is aggressive bitterness and sharp pine with dry biscuit malt. Taste is strong bitterness and assertive pine with spots of citrus and a clean malt backbone. Lightly coating mouthfeel. Solid.

blipp (6546) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - DEC 7, 2014
Bottle. Pours clear gold with a thin white head. Wow, this is pretty awesome. Lemony citric and resinous hops, fresh pine and spruce, moderate bitterness, and a sharp hoppy finish with a bit of lingering bitterness. Zero astringency, no unnecessary ABV , very mild part presence. Really great. Iíd have guessed Chinook, Amarillo and Simcoe hops, but it looks like Mosaic and Simcoe from the description. Super fresh and bright and delicious.

Bottle. Nice light golden yellow pour. Hoppy but not too crazy. I like the mosaic. Crisp, clean, a nice citrus feel to it. Some grapefruit, lemon. Good beer.

Hazy gold beer, good pale cream colour head. Palate is airy and minerally crisp. Nice nose of floral peach. Light malts, fluffy cream. Hops kick in quickly. Peachy floral turning to citric bitterness. Airy finish. Dried fruits linger on. Nice.

Bottle. The pour is light. The aroma is big hops, nice and aromatic. The taste is big. Much like the description, you wouldn't expect such a big taste profile from a beer that looks like a light beer. Very impressed. Boo Koo! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
