PROJECT X SERIES: Mother Earth Cognitive Aerobics

Mother Earth Cognitive Aerobics

The halfway point of Mother Earth Brew Co.’s art-inspired “Project X” Series has arrived, in the form of Cognitive Aerobics. (That’s a beer.) 

The can artwork, with a strong colorful 80’s vibe, was created by San Diego-based abstract artist, Michael Carini. His primary medium is acrylic, referring to his process as “Acrylic Alchemy.” Carini really goes into depth on what the name “Cognitive Aerobics” means, worth reading on Mother Earth’s website. 

The beer is a hazy IPA, with a 50/50 mix of New Zealand and Pacific Northwest Hops The brewing process apparently captured the fruiter/juicer qualities of the hop blend, compliments by some old-school hoppy citrus flavors. From the description, your palate will definitely get a work out, tasting both old school and new school hops in each sip. 

Mother Earth Brew Co. Cognitive Aerobics Hazy IPA is available for a limited time in 16-ounce cans and draft. 

Style: Hazy IPA
Hops: Nelson Sauvin, Moteuka, Citra, Amarillo
Availability: 16oz Cans, Draft. Limited Release.

Mothe Earth Big Mother Triple IPA is available in May and June, celebrating the brewery’s 11th Anniversary in 16-ounce cans and draft.

Style: Imperial IPA
Availability: 16oz Cans, Draft. Limited Release.

Mother Earth Brew Co. Rail Jam Hazy IPA up next in Project X

Mother Earth Rail Jam Hazy IPA

Mother Earth Rail Jam Hazy IPA is the latest entry in the brewery’s Project-X Series. Each release in the series is inspired by both brewer, and artist.

The artist is Matthew Perdoni, a visual artist based in North County San Diego. His passion for the arts started less with the comic book stories of Batman and Wolverine, but more with the illustrations themselves. Now his paintings and public artworks are well-known in San Diego.

Fans of artists and their stories, don’t skip on Perdoni’s interview with Mother Earth. 

Off the Rails Hazy IPA is a collaboration with Mother Earth’s Director of Brewing Operations, Christopher Baker, and the Vista Location Head Brewer, Bret Stitzman. A lot of the brewery’s hazy IPAs have been lactose-heavy juiciness. Apparently, in this release, the brewery dialed flavor profile back a bit, bringing a bit of balance to the beer, which – might actually seem like going off the rails in this day and age.

Rails features some heavy hop hitters- Cashmere, Lemon Drop, Galaxy, and Citra Hops.

The net-net is that Rail Jam drinks exceptionally smooth, with almost no pronounced bitterness to speak of with bright lemon-lime citrus qualities in addition to melon, peach, and tangerine.

Mother Earth Rail Jam Hazy IPA is available in 16-ounce cans for a limited time where the brewery’s limited releases are sold.

Style: Hazy IPA
Hops: Cashmere, Lemon Drop, Galaxy, Citra

Availability: 16oz Cans, Draft. Limited Release.
Debut: Late April 2021
