Had this on nitro tap at The Buckeye Beer Engine. Rated a 6.8%abv. Very creamy, yellow boddy with alce sheet. A good bitterness. I would have thought nitro would have diminished the taste, but in fact it shifted it into an ESB-like flavour, differentiating it from all the other West Coast IPAs out there. Cute, fun stuff. Moderate hop aroma.

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.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: The beer is relatively clear yellowish amber in color and has a moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a half finger high dense off white head that died down but consistently left a thin head covering the surface and lots of lacy rings of bubbles down the sides of the glass.
S: There are moderately strong aromas of citrus hops in the nose along with notes of pine resin and pineapples.
T: The taste has flavors of citrus hops intermixed with some notes of pine resin hops. There is a moderate to strong amount of bitterness, which particularly stands out and lingers through the finish.
M: It feels medium-bodied and very crisp on the palate with a moderate to high amount of carbonation.
O: This IPA delivers a nice punch of hops and bitterness but is well-balanced in that the hops are not overpowering. It also hides its alcohol very well, making it not too difficult to drink.

4.05/5  rDev +7.1%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Appearance: Pours a hazy golden color with a fluffy head that leaves some lacing

Smell: Grainy, hoppy aroma - smells like a homebrew shop

Taste: Starts out with a biscuity flavor; after the swallow, the grainbag tastes burst forth along with some pineapple fruit; the finish is crisp and dry

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation; a bit tingly

Drinkability: Not to citrusy and not to piney, this is an unusual tasting IPA that I suspect has been dry hopped; I liked it

3.65/5  rDev -3.4%
look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 4

Aroma: Definate hop character laced with malty sweetness. Spicy and a bit pine-ey.
Appearance: medium coper. A solid color. Nice carbonation. 1/2 inch head that remained firm. Tight white bubbles that laces well.
Taste: Hops dominate the nose, but soon balances well with a medium-full malty body. Body remains firm and continues to release flavors of spice and herbs. A complex hop blend. Finishes nice. Perhapse a bit dry, but ok for style.
Aftertaste: Bitter and sweet. Not too dry, which often happens with IPA's.
Impression: a well balanced IPA. Not overly agressive on any end. Flavors are consistent and varying in a subtle way. A nice summertime refresher.

Burnished orange-amber, filled with an impressive flurry of variously sized particles. The thick, creamy, eggshell white cap has a magma-like surface and deposits sticky sheets of sand-blasted lace in its wake. It looks like the hop load is going to be on the generous side.

There are very few things in all of beerdom more appealing to me than an Amarillo and Centennial-loaded IPA. Mojo features an explosive nose of bright, pungent, fruity (grapefruit, pineapple and orange), hoppy splendor. In a word... outstanding.

The flavor didn't seem quite the equal of the nose initially, but with warming has come into its own and is impressing the hell out of me. Almost all aspects of the aroma are still present and accounted for on the palate. This is unquestionably an Amarilloicious IPA and is one that I will enjoy to the very last drop from my laced-crusted pint glass.

There's great balance between malty sweet and hoppy bitter, starting as the former and ending as the latter. The flavor profile consists of melted caramel with an overlay of candied citrus zest, pineapple syrup and pine sap. The flavors meld nicely in the mouth, making this an IPA that is easy to love. I'm a sucker for beautifully brewed hop bombs such as this.

The body is medium during the first half of the bottle, but firms up noticeably as it warms and is mouthcoating without being overly sticky sweet. The amount of carbonation is near perfect as it brings a minor sparkle to the mouth and tongue. A huge thank you to prAna for the bomber.

I love the Looking Glass series of beers and Mojo is no exception. A heavily-hopped Amarillo and Centennial IPA is right up my alley and this one hits all the right notes in the creation in a symphonic homage to the glory of the hop. I'd still probably pick a supermodel over Mojo if I had to choose one to take to a desert island, but I'd have to give it a long, hard think first.

A very nice single finger nitro formed head on an orangey golden cloudy body. Aroma of Pungent floral, resin and earthy hops. Flavor follows with sharp peppery bite and more pine resin, tart citrus and floral notes. Fairly well balanced by the malty base. Smooth nitro feel is nice as the bite from the booze and hops combined with normal carbonation would set this one back for me. The booze just dominate for me and are set off even more by the hop profile to really enjoy this one.

Poured a pale yellow with a decent head, and some nice lace, looks pretty good. Smell was very citrus, with a predominat grapefruit right up front. A hint of somthing bolder lying beneath it through. Taste has quite a bite. That grapefruit, orange hits you right up front with a nice piney afterwards. Taste lingers for a while too. Very smoothe, with good carbonation. This is a nice IPA. It could be a bit fuller, it is crisp, but very nice and definatly a drinker.

On-tap at Boulder Beer Tap House at the Denver Airport

A: The beer pours a clear pale golden color with a white head and some lacing.

S: Not the hoppiest nose on this. Floral and sweet citrus hops with some more subtle tangerine and orange aromas. A sweet bread malt aroma, too.

T: Sweet on the palate as well (seems to be a trend). A bit of pine and some light apricot notes. Sweet bread and a faint toffee flavor is there as well. A light citrus flavor, perhaps tangerine just a bit of grapefruit.

M: Medium bodied with a medium carbonation.

O: As far as IPAs go, this was middle of the road at best.

This beer pours out as a yellowish color with some hazy to it. The head was white and pretty fluffy looking at first. The lacing was decent. The smell had a little bit of pine and cirtus. The taste was good in the beginning but by the end it seemed like the hop flavors died off by mid glass. The mouthfeel was average. Overall this beer isn't terrible but I think it just loses something half way through.

12 ounce bottle - $1.99 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia.

Appearance: Pours a clear, dark copper body with a thin, whitish head and a slight overall effervescence. Light, splotchy lacing.

Smell: Fairly pungent, fruity aroma with strong, zesty notes of oily lemon and tangerine rinds along with some pineapple. Modest hints of pale malts in back. I'll freely admit, it does smell pleasant.

Taste: Pale malts with a scant caramel sweetness. Juicy, ripe hop fruit flavors follow with a firm, but not overbearing bitterness. Very slight biscuity tones perk up late for the first few sips, but as the cumulative bitterness builds, they fade away. Finishes dry with a light, lingering bitterness and a pinch of spicy hops.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Just a hair above medium carbonation. Slight oiliness to the mouthfeel.

Drinkability: Not grotesquely bitter, just enough malt balance, and an altogether fine aroma. A quality India Pale Ale.

Poured a clear dull golden with a very sticky white head that stuck like glue to the pint glass as it settled very slowly.Hmm very piney,citrust aroams that really jump out at ya very fresh aromas,I detected a noticable nutty malt aromas underneath the hop profile.Seemed a bit thin for 7% alc a tad watery that carried over into the flavors no real malt base just a thin watery-like flavor turning into a piney hop finish.Now the hop profile is there but nothing leads up to it its like an abrupt hoppy finish if you get what Iam sayin.Started oput promising but the aroams didnt follow thru to the flavors.

Bottle dated "enjoy by AUG 02 2011".

Into a tulip glass it pours a bright pale orange. Fluffy white foam that leaves concentric rings of lace down the sides.

Initial yeasty aroma that blurred into a more traditional herbal pine nose. Earthy and green hops, no citrus from the Amarillo listed on the bottle though.

Resiny hop bitterness comes through first, all pine and greenery, then a touch of pale malt and caramel sweetness emerges. The dry bitter hops linger long into the aftertaste. Not much Amarillo oranginess but there is a little as it warms up. Moderate carbonation, medium bodied. A couple wouldn't be a problem in one sitting, though there are quite a few other IPA's i'd reach for first.

Thanks to beertooth for the schwap...

12 oz. bottle poured out a orange/amber color with a creamy head. It left nice lacing. It smelled a bit of citrus and cascade hops. It had a spicy flavor and was also a little bitter. It had a sharp mouthfeel but it was a tad bit grainy, too. Overall, it was quite good and drinkable.

bigtime ipa. this one pours a brassy gold color with a modest white head. whoa hops in the nose, i smell major american varieties, man bold. taste is less intense than the nose, but stands up to some spicy chips and salsa real well. this is a really pungent hoppy brew, mouthfeel matches perfectly, lighter side of medium bodied with a nice balanced carbonation and finish. not necessarily remarkable for being different, but just a really well made ipa, and the abv can render you useless after a long hike if you arent careful...
