look: 4.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

12 oz bottle into a wine glass.

Appearance: Pours a clear amber color. The head is a finger high and white in shade. It has a superbly sticky texture and good retention; the former allows it to leave a nice ring of lacing on the glass. Very aesthetically pleasing. (4.5)

Smell: There doesn't seem to be a significant hop presence here. There is a bit of flowers and apricot coming from the Amarillo hops, but the primary note is a sweet, white bread maltiness (which I prefer to the more burnt caramel/toffee I get from darker IPAs). Actually, there isn't a significant anything to this IPA. I'd reckon the nose about 15% too subtle for its own good, in fact. (3)

Taste: Flavors of nettle, flowers, and apricot hit the palate first. Between the beginning and ending hop flavors (though the latter is more of a bitter finish), there's a pleasant maltiness lurking in the mid-taste. Instead of obstructive toffee, the flavor is closer to sweet bread, or maybe even sugar cookie. Nothing too exciting here, but at least it's not loaded down with crystal malt. (3.25)

Mouthfeel: It's a bit flabby as far as IPAs go: it has a full body and a sweet finish that hinders its ability to go down the palate. Carbonation is somewhat weak...maybe that's why. Luckily, the bitterness gives it some drinkability back. (3)

Overall: This isn't your typical crystal-malt-and-piny-hops IPA; this is more floral, with a lighter (yet still sweet) maltiness. It's still maltier than I prefer, but I think its malt backbone is genuinely likable. I'd gladly give a fresher sample another chance. (3.25)

3.24/5: Not much stands out here, but at least they got the maltiness right

I am really starting to get into IPA's and I thoroughly enjoyed this beer. The citrus flavor was extremely enjoyable, and it goes down pretty smooth. Drank out of the bottle. I enjoyed this a lot.

My Mojo has been pretty good for a long time (not to brag), but for some reason I don't buy this often. I know I tried it a long while back, but I don't know why I haven't been back. Mojo has good mojo.

I looks like a good AIPA, yellow, with some head and lacing. The aroma is pungent and actually has something besides hops in there.

The taste is very well balanced for the style. Hoppy, yet a little dark and malty. It has the depth that some of the lighter AIPAs are missing.

The aftertaste is crisp and hoppy. None of it is too bitter. I think I should do more mojo more often.
