2.8/5  rDev -25.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Aroma: Moderate floral hoppy notes, strong carmel backbone, slight metallic notes that are a little unpleasant.

Appearance: Clear amber orange pour with a sticky and sudsy white head.

Flavor: Big malty munich base with resiny and floral hop flavors. Background alcohol notes. Orange and citrus fruit persists. Finish is clean and dry.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied, slightly oily, moderate high carbonation.

Overall impression: An immensely drinkable malt forward APA. Maybe I didn't get a fresh sample but I thought the hop profile was too muted for an American IPA. Probably won't re-visit.

Enjoy by 3/27/14.

Pours a clear golden orange with a foamy orange-white head that settles to a small cap on top of the beer. A foamy lattice of lace coats the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grapefruit juice, and citrus zest aromas. Taste is much the same with metallic, pine, and herbal hop flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty poor beer that smells decent enough, but there is something making this one super metallic tasting and fairly undrinkable.

2.88/5  rDev -23.8%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 2.5

A: Deep gold with very nice clarity and minimal carbonation. Rocky white head gets a good start before retreating to a thin layer. Leaves behind a generous lace.

S: Seems promising enough. A strong scent of grapefruit, lemon and pine great the nose. There is a mild fruity sweetness as well.

T: Metallic grapefruit, with a slight caramel malt sweetness underneath. That pretty much sums things up. Bitterness hits right away with the aforementioned metal and fruit. It's moderate, rather than over the top, but it doesn't taste that good to me. The extra fizz in the body isn't helping matters. Finishes with tart grapefruit and a hint of pine.

M: Medium body is slightly oily and has a bit too much fizz.

D: I'm sitting here really wanting to like this. Boulder is one of my local breweries, and I want to support them. But this beer just doesn't do it for me. Way too metallic to make me want another.

Pours a two-fingered off-white head that fades slowly leaving a good lace. Clear amber color. Moderate hoppy/floral nose. Light carbonation and medium bodied. Starts bitter, and plenty of hops, hints of sweetness. Bitter aftertaste. $1.75 for a 12oz bottle from Julio's Liquors Westborough, Ma.

22 oz. bomber, enjoy by May 1. Should be pretty fresh then.

A: Clear body, a bit on the light side. Decent retention. Lots of carbonation bubbles floating up to the top.

S: Candy, bread, some alcohol present in the nose.

T: Hmm. Not as many hops as I would like, and a skunky aftertaste. Some citrus, but it comes off tasting like cheap candy.

M: Thin, good carbonation levels though.

O: Not a good beer. I'm going to have a Lagunitas Sucks to wash this bad taste out of my mouth.

What you have here is an average ipa. Just a plain jane beer that is only represented by a cool label claiming its "mojo".

Appearance is very light orange with about a half inch head that last for 20secs or so. Minimal lacing which to me seems watered down.
Smell is of mild hops and citrus notes. (very light).
Taste is a lot like water, hops, and very little bitterness at the end.
Mouthfeel is a simple lightly carbonated easy to drink session.

Just ok.

Pours a slightly cloudy copper color with a thin head. I don't get any hops in the nose. Did I get a mislabeled bottle or something? Doesn't taste like a IPA at all. Tastes malty and yeasty and slightly flat, thin, and watery. I gave it 3.0 across the board as I obviously got a old, bad, or mislabled beer. Better luck next time I guess.

Pours a nice pale color.

Smells like a classic IPA -- hoppy and complex, but this one also features a citrus scent. Very interesting.

Taste is fairly hoppy, hints of a peeled orange. Nice balance of hops/malt.

As much as I liked the smell and initial taste, I couldn't really get into it. After one I was done.
