3.9/5  rDev +2.9%

A. Poured from the tap into a glass mug. Nice orangish body with a good off white head and some decent stick.

S. Pleasant but nothing stands out besides some citric and floral hops and a bit of malt.

T. Wonderful fruityness from the yeast/hop combination that leaves me thinking of fresh mangoes. Some citrus overtones are noted as well. The malt is balanced well as is the yeast and its not overly sweet.

M. Medium bodied and smooth. Pleasurable. Slightly dry finish.

D. This is a very tasty and original IPA. A bit strong as far as alcohal goes, but you would never know it, as there is virtually no alcohal presence in this one. A good gateway IPA for those who aren't ready for the super bitter.

4/5  rDev +5.5%

A light gold body with ruby tints and with a two-finger head that sticks around awhile and left minor lacings. Run-of-the-mill citric hop smell with some faint malts (little sweet) in there too. A dry malt taste combo'ed with a strong citric hop burst. Has a dryness to it that holds up and doesn't weaken the taste buds; finishes with a decent dry backbite that left me wanting some more. Quality IPA.

4/5  rDev +5.5%

Appearance: Clear and orange color, small fizzy head, lacing.

Aroma: Citrus and hops. When I was a beer novice, I always avoided IPA's after trying a couple, and the aroma was one thing that kept me away. This one smells really good. Its also kind of strong, the glass on my desk and I'm sitting a few inches away and can still smell it very well.

Taste: Starts out with a good amount of hop bitterness. There are traces of citrus, and it finishes off with a bit of sweetness. Overall, pretty good.

Mouthfeel: Body is medium, and it has a fairly clean finish. The sweetness in the finish adds to this, as I feel it in my throat, and the back of my mouth. Great.

Drinkability: Easy to drink, tastes great, not too heavy..I could definitely have a couple of these.

Not too familiar with IPA's, but this one is a great start.

3.65/5  rDev -3.7%

A- Completely transparent amber body that pours with a thin fizzy white head that quickly dissolves into a thin collar. No lacing is left behind in the glass.

S-Nose definitely has a presence of citrus hops and a malty backbone.

T-Some citrus an earthy hop flavors upfront with a hint of a malt backbone...pretty mild upfront. Some hop bitterness and a touch of piny hop flavor come through for the finish. Nothing lingers but a very mild residual hop bitterness.

M-Medium carbonation and a smooth oily hop body. Mouthfeel really comes through for the finish.

D-This is a pretty good IPA. A little bit bitter-but not to bitter and pretty citrusy. Good mouthfeel. Not one of my favorites but one I will definitely have again.

I picked up a sixer of this the other day and fell for it pretty hard... I have really fallen in love with amarillo hops and the IPA showcases them great! Very light and crisp, the aroma has a strong citrus note and finishes very nice... I would recommend this to someone who isn't into IPA's because it isn't too bitter and is a great example of how to showcase a certain hop...

3.53/5  rDev -6.9%

Poured with a 1 ½ finger head that was white and faded almost immediately Orange/ light Amber in color. Insane sheets of lacing.

Aroma was of light citrus and also of sweet malt. A bit roasted, which I didn't expect.

Taste was more malty than I expected. I can taste the alcohol and also some of the grains. There is a roasted almost burnt nature to this. It's pretty good. Not great.
Hop bitterness and some sweetness both hang on the palette after swallowing the beer.

Mouth feel is medium bodied and the hop bitterness and roasted nature make this a big beer in your mouth.

Standard drinkability.

I enjoy IPA's that showcase hops a bit more.

4.2/5  rDev +10.8%

Pours a radiant gold with crystal clear clarity with nice cascading carbonation that keeps the yellow tinged cap at attention for the duration,nice thick sticky lacing is making this very inviting to look at. The nose is powerful and in your face with hoppy citrus and fresh cut wet grass aromas. Very caramely and sweet on the tongue with hoppy bitterness coming on full strength midway through. Pine and subtle grapefruit tartness is winning the taste bud war in my mouth,this IPA isn't as hostile as some others,this has an above average drinkability due to the offsetting sweet/caramel malt balance. The body is medium and full at the same time, with exceptional carbonation that creates a soft,creamy,lingering finish.

4.9/5  rDev +29.3%

I really like this beer, and it begins from the moment the bottle cap comes off. Immediately one's olfactory sense is met with a very pleasant strong smell of hops and citrus. Mojo IPA pours an unassuming golden color, but packs a big taste of hops bitterness mixed with grapefruit that lingers on the back of the tongue for a good long time.

3.88/5  rDev +2.4%

A: Pours a golden hazy orange with light copper tint and a medium white head. Feeling the glow.

S: Sharp pine and citrus aroma. Fruit sweetness in the back which couples nicely.

T: Solid bitter hoppy taste. There are definite hints of citrus and tartness with a nice herbal undertone.

M: Medium bodied with fair carbonation. Crisp.

D: It drinks very well and if you like the strong taste a six of this is worth picking up.

3.85/5  rDev +1.6%

This beer is solid, just like the Hazed and Infused I sampled from Boulder was. Orange color, moderate off-white head that shrinks a bit but some remains creating really nice lacing. The aroma is hoppy with fruity notes and is pleasant. The flavor is a nice crisp bitter hoppy bite with some tangy fruits. Hops are clearly the dominant flavor. Bitter and very dry finish. Definitely a solid IPA and I would for sure get it again.

4.47/5  rDev +17.9%

A - Sipped straight from the bottle. A circular, hypnotic array of blues, oranges, and yellows make for an inviting and interesting look.

S - Citrusy hops, I can't wait to taste it.

T - Strong hops flavor preceded by a hint of sweet. This is a fantastic tasting beer.

M - The texture is common of a good IPA and can be felt on the middle back of my tongue. This is a nice feeling brew.

~ Let me put it to you this way. I'm going to get some more.

3.85/5  rDev +1.6%

12oz bottle courtesy of my dad. But that means I don't know how old it is. Pours a pale gold with a nice head, but it recedes quickly. The aroma is like an aged hoppy beer, so perhaps this has sat for a little long. But the flavour isn't worse for wear. It's very well balanced, with a good malt base and mellowed hops. I'll re-rate once I have a fresh one.

3.33/5  rDev -12.1%

a orange color typical of ipa. scant lace.
s pine and grapefruit. some breadyness, yet a fairly clean aroma.
t a bit too sweet, almost dipa-like. not particularly complex or interesting. tastes like it smells, + vice versa.
m slick and oily, somewhat syrupy. medium to full body. carbonation could be finer.
d not bad but not nearly the best imo. something's missing--the bitterness. where's the bitterness. it just never bites.

3.78/5  rDev -0.3%

Pours a deep yellow/ light copper with a nice thick white head.

Smells great. Sweet piney citrus with nice malt backbone.

Sharp hoppy taste leaves a bitter aftertaste.

Nice full mouthfeel, but a little bit bitter for me, it doesn't have the sweet malty taste to back it up.

not much to say, actually, that hasn't been said. a good, but not exceptionally good ipa. piney and citrusy with a mild malty backbone and a hint of tea coming through. not caramelly/malty enough to strike a perfect balance, and not properly hopped to cause euphoric hophead bliss. the mouthfeel is very nice, and the taste is above average. fun and enjoyable to try, but i doubt i will revisit.

3.9/5  rDev +2.9%

A: Pours a pale copper color with a generously frothed, two-finger head, active carbonation and phenomenal lacing.

S: Citrus hops, malts and grapefruit.

T: Piney citrus hops with an adequate balance of sweet malts. Notes of pine and tangerine. Finishes bitter and dry.

M: Medium-bodied and somewhat creamy. Well carbonated.

D: Good drinkability for something bordering on an Imperial IPA.

Drove to SC to get this since it's not sold in NC...I live near the state line so no big deal.

A - Clear orange color with excellent lacing.

S - Very hoppy and pleasant.

T - Hoppy bitter at first but after a few sips nto so much...very good balance .

D - I would have never knew this was a 7% brew unless I was told, very drinkable and good. Will have another.

Had on tap from Cambridge Common, served in a chilled pint glass.The beer is a dark orange, with a bubbly white head. Beer drinks with a creamy upfront and citrus aftertaste, good fresh hop taste with a solid malt body to carry the flavor. This beers drinkability is scary for 7% ABV, allowing 3 pints to go down quickly! A tasty choice if not looking for a hop bomb but something a little more then a Harpoon or SNPA

3.6/5  rDev -5%

A - Pours one finger of head that has a decent retention and leaves globs of lacing as it settles down. It is golden in color with some yeast floating around.

S - Sweet caramel malt with hints of citrus and flowery hops.

M - A light-medium bodied beer with a semi-smooth feeling and adequate carbonation.

T - Much hoppier than it smells. The sweet malts are up front followed by some bready/toasted malts. There are a good amount of piny and citrusy hops that leave a dry, sour bitterness. The hops complement the malts well.

A pretty good IPA that is very drinkable.

See my review for Hop^3.

And, actually, yes, I am serious. I have the two of them right in front of me. The different that I can see is that the Hop^3 has a slightly darker color. Good stuff.

Edit: OK, well, there are other, slight, differences. The Mojo is a touch dry in comparison and not as fruity in aroma or taste. But, really, these beers, as tasted here, are really close to the same.

Edit of the edit: Aha! But the most telling is that I just mixed the two together and I can't tell the difference between that and either of the two! Dang!

3.83/5  rDev +1.1%

Nice ipa. Pours light copper with a decent head--holds up well, leaves nice lacing. Aromas of pungent hops,orange peel,slight pine and in the back light malt. Flavor mirrors the aromas. Nice hop bite in the begining--some bitter citrus peel-orange and grapefuit--you know--when you get the "white" of the peel. Flavor is present but bitterness is strong. Nicely balanced by malt. Maybe a small amount of biscuit mixed in. Hops leave slight resin that lingers in the mouth but otherwise the transition of flavors make it nice. Very drinkable--but at 7% abv in a full pint wouldn't do more than 2.

4.15/5  rDev +9.5%

A - Medium orange color, mostly clear with some visual carbonation. Head fades to a thick film. A few sheets of lacing.

S - Pungent fruity hoppiness with a mild brown sugar malt balance.

T - Taste starts out with a sharp hoppy bite, sweet and bitter. Hops lighten and then a faint malt balance. Finish leaves an oily bitter hoppy flavor. Overall a hop-bomb.

M - Medium consistency with elevated carbonation.

D - Excellent beer for a hop fix. Easy drinking, but not the most balanced IPA.

4.15/5  rDev +9.5%

A - Very interesting color for an IPA, a light-gold color. A little foggy, too. The head is simply beautiful. Thick with very fine bubbles and great retention.

S - You can smell this beer from a yard away there is so much hop aroma. Mainly citrus and floral hop bouquet, and little presence of alcohol, surprisingly.

T - Wonderful and very true to the IPA style. Left a very dry and tart taste in my mouth. Long-lasting citrus, almost sour aftertaste. Traces of alcohol present. Barely recognizable malts.

M/D - Light bodied with medium carbonation. Leaves little bubbles in the back of the throat (very pleasant!). Easy to drink, in my opinion.

Mojo has become one of my favorite IPAs that I will continue to buy.

drank out of the bottle so never saw what it looked like,

S- Mostly citrus hops

T- I would say grapefruit tart bitterness is the most noticeable aspect of the beer and you will notice it.

M- fairly light with mild carbonation

D- Its good, I prefer a standard pale ale but it is worth a try.
