look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Single 12 oz bottle copped from Buy Rite on Oak Tree in South Plainfield for $1.99... Pours a hazy, cloudy, straw-colored appearance with a small frothy head that soon receded but left a fair amount of lacing on the glass... good smell, bursting with fresh hops, vanilla, and grapefruit... taste strongly mirrored the aroma, with a noticeable suggestion of hops, slight caramel, and a warming bitterness smoothed out by a nice mixture of lemon, citrus, and lime... good stuff from Boulder and a pretty respectable stab at the style... Rich, thick mouthfeel complemented by a fair level of drinkability... very crisp, and clean... This is certainly a nice representation of the style, but not the absolute best that I've ever come across... Worth a try...

4.11/5  rDev +8.7%
look: 2.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: 2.5. A light, pilsner like looking golden color. Not a strong first impression in it's debut for me. transparent, no sediment. However, it appears to have strong lacing characteristics, appearing to be pacing it's way down the glass like Patrick Ewing pacing down the court in his elder days. Extreme copper appearance, not very proper.

Smell: 4.0 The floral hops are overwhelming in this brew, but the smell does ring true! Fascinating scent is present and I must admit it does have strong cohesiveness with the other aromas of pine and apricot, as well as a lack of alcohol in the nostrils.

Taste: 4.5 . Apricot tingles and mingles in my taste buds. A very powerful floral hops overwhelms the senses with no pretenses. A very fruity hoppy drink complimented with other pine and oil. Very surprising considering the appearance was demising. A nice bitter aftertaste.

Mouthfeel: 4.0 Creamy, but Juicy, carbonation is present and of somewhat abundance. Swishing and dishing in my mouth, it's thicker than i imagined.

Drinkability: 4.0 I can only drink a few of these...the floral hoppy taste is a bit overwhelming...but then again that's what I was looking for in an ipa...right fellows? Just like Just for Men , drink more than a few of these and you have a HOME RUN!

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 3.5

Undated 12 oz bottle.

A- Pours a light golden color - veyr clear. No haze. Has a decent head on it that disappears quickly. Small lacing remains.

S - A strong hpos smell that could be described as citrusy - maybe some grapefruit backup. Don't see any malt in the nose.

T- Starts with a sweet flavor, that transitions to the bittering hops quickly. The hops aren't as strong as the smell would suggest. Then finishes off with some sweet specialty malts flavor. Awfully balanced.

M - Its thick and creamy - very smooth going odwn. Not much carbonation there.

D - A good drinking beer. I would say it could go down in bunches. Potent enough though to keep you honest.

Another fine selection from boulder beer.

Found it on tap at the Spinnerstown.

The Mojo has a copper-orange color with a nice head on it. Some thin lacing left as it goes down.

Had a floral hop smell to it, very slight pine also.

It was very good, not a real hoppy IPA but a very balanced one. Could easily detect the malt. Has a little above average carbonation and an overall lighter body to it.

Great IPA to have when your having more than one, and its easily done with this fine IPA.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

light amber gold, decent head that shrinks to a thin layer. some lace. but overall just a little too pale in color, imho

lightly piney hops, with grapefruit notes. whiff of yeast and faint alcohol.

resinous hop character is present but not overly aggressive, becoming a little more citrusy along the way. moderately bitter, although perhaps more bitter going into the finish and aftertaste. decent bready malt and caramel peek through and make a presence towards the finish too.

slightly thin and astringent, but overall still smooth enough, with gentle carbonation.

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

12oz bottle poured into a tulip glass.

A: Pours a rather light and clear yellowish amber with a creamy one inch sticky white head.

S: Very floral grapefruit presence from the hops that great the nose strongly along with sticky pineapple undercurrent that reminds me of Belgian Ipas, it's a really nice smell overall.

T/MF: Good enough amount of carbonation to spread the hop bitterness and malt sweetness all over the palate. Very sweet to begin with in the malt department with a long sticky protracted finish. The taste is not as fruity as the smell much nuttier and more piney, the bitterness only becomes more pronounced the further you get into this beer.

D: Highly drinkable for a bitter and boozy as the beer is, not too bitter so as to scorch the tongue and mellowed out by a pleasing malty sweetness. A nice choice when looking for an AIPA.

Poured from bottle to a pint glass. Pours a nice orange amber color with off-white head. Nice aroma of pine, then citrus. Lots of finishing hops, it seems. Good IPA flavor. Nice bitter hop bite to start, but then settles nicely on the palate. Good smooth IPA which I would not have thought, as the aroma is strong. Nice beer to session.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Sampled from a 12 oz bottle, poured into a 12 oz pint glass at around 45 degrees.

A - Pours a cloudy copper with a long-lasting white head; strong retention throughout.

S - Aroma of pine and hops with only a slight citrus note.

T - Well-balanced flavor of floral/peppery hops and bitter citrus. Peppery malt comes through after a few seconds. Pretty straightforward IPA, but delicious.

M - Medium body with a bitter finish. Slight detection of alcohol towards the end.

D - Very drinkable IPA, despite the 7% ABV...it will definitely creep up on you after a few.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Pours an orange/gold color with a creamy, white head that settles into a thin lace with plenty of lacing on the side of my Greene King IPA pint glass.

The aroma starts off with a blast of grapefruit goodness. This is followed by a scents of pine needles and a light caramel.

Flavor is again dominated by citrus with a light caramel backbone. Finish is not as bitter as I expected, very balanced with a slight dry earth and pine aftertaste. Mouth feel is velvet-like with brisk carbonation and very little alcohol warmth.

Overall a really good, well balanced IPA. If you like Amarillo hops, you should like this beer.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

App - Golden in color and clear. Moderate sized white head, a bit coarsely bubbled, but surprisingly good head retention.

Arom - Strong pine hop aroma, and a secondary but complimentary caramel malt aroma. Also some citrusy (grapefruit?) hop aroma.

Flav - A nice initial malt flavor, but hop flavor kicks in followed by a gentle bitterness. Finishes quite clean - surprisingly not all that bitter.

MF - Medium body and carbonation, no astringency from the hops, and minimal alcohol warming. Overall a nice, gentle mouthfeel.

D'ability - A solid IPA, with more hop aroma and flavor than bitterness. Makes it easier drinking than some hop bombs.

Mojo IPA is Boulder's fourth beer in the Looking Glass series. Mojo glistens a polished pale copper with streams of carbonation rushing to the surface trying to keep the head alive. It's doing a fine job too. There was two fingers worth of powder white head on the pour before falling to a respectable cap leaving some really nice lacing on it's way down.

The aroma is fruit juicy. Sweetened grapefruit and oranges make up the majority while a biscuity maltiness swirls around in the background. Although the citrus takes hold there's more than enough maltiness to create a sense of balance.

This beer hits the spot when you're in the mood for a balanced flavorful IPA. This isn't necessarily a hop bomb or a taste bud shredder (which are usually my preferred IPAs). No, this is more of a juicy citric tinged IPA with a biscuity maltiness.

Good mouthfeel here. Medium bodied with a touch of airiness from the streaming carbonation. That carbonation also brings along a velvety mouthfeel that goes great with the style.

Mojo is a very approachable IPA. Has a good balance that keeps you drinking the night through. This may go down a little too easily.

Mojo is another good brew from Boulder. Although I'm not too fond of their standard offerings the Looking Glass Series sports a good portfolio.

L:A see through orange yellow color. A birhgt white frothy head.
S:I am picking up a very faint grapefruit, not much else.
T:Just on the sides of my tounge I am tasting that grapefruit I had in the nose. nothing else much stick out.
M:Super small bubbles making it pretty fizzy
D: Its a good IPA, a bit light for me.

Bomber. Pours a nice golden color with a good fluffy head and it laces the glass really well too.

Smells hoppy and sharp. Not much in the way of malt here but this hophead doesn't care much. Very hoppy. I'm not the biggest fan of the Amarillo hops but it still smells good.

All hops here. I detect not a hint of malt in this one. Kind of unbalanced but again, I love hops so it don't bother me.

Very drinkable beer. Nice and hoppy, not too strong, great taste.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Pours a light orange/butterscotch with good clarity and low/medium head. Nose- tropical fruit and some sweetness from the malt. Taste- amarillo hops shine through lending a nice fruitiness but also a dry aspirin like quality which is not so good. Light caramel malts make their presence known as well. Dry, slightly sweet finish from the generous hoping. Moderate carbonation and good mouthfeel. Not too thick, but some oilyness. Good session IPA.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Appearance: Golden color with white head that does not disappear too quickly.

Smell: Very citric, spicy aroma.

Taste: Rich, hoppy bite- citrus/floral dominates. Hops are not too oppressive but definitely overpower the malt. Hop bitterness reains right through the aftertaste.

Mouthfeel: Hops slap around the tastebuds but this brew is otherwise smooth. Medium-bodied.

Drinkability: Great for hop-heads like myself. Not as strong a brew (like Hops Infusion) but tasty.

Never one to turn down an IPA, I picked this one up this summer during the trip to the Great Midwest.

It's a lightly hazy but bright copper in the glass. The head is snowy white with tons of lace. Crazy hop aromas here. The hops provide herbal, citrusy and floral aromas.

As expected, a nice amount of hops delivered in this beer. It's snappy and spicy in the mouth. A bit of pale malt but nicely showcasing the hops in this one. Hops dominate the finish and the aftertaste. A nicely hopped ale, at least for a regular IPA.

This is a nice beer and a nice surprise. I was disappointed with the dry-hopped Hazed and Infused but this beer delivers. Recommended.

This beer smelled sweet and hoppy, like an IPA should. It tasted very hoppy, grapefruity, and had a hint of citrus peel at the end. However, this one was hard to drink after a while, something didn't sit right for me in this one. I was expecting a bit more from this beer.

A big fan of the Bolder Beer brews and this is no exception. Plus the bottle was clearly stamped with bottle date.

A - Pours a clear copper color with a nice head that slowly fades into a large mid cap. Lacing was steady and strong. Not much haze in this one.

S - Pine and light on the hops. A very solid IPA sent IMO.

T - Kinda like the smell, a bit more hops are present on the palate.

M - Tang of the pine hits you up front with an intense hop finish, well crafted and very tasty for the price... $8 / 6 pack.

D - This is a strong representation of a fine IPA. It has all you need, intense hops and a clean finish. The 7% makes it easy to get in trouble. Highly recommended.

Bulder Beer Company from what I've experienced craft some pretty fine brews. This one will not disappoint.

Sorry - maybe I got a bad batch, but this was not that good to my taste buds. I am getting formaldehyde notes that are too much of a turnoff. Maybe because I worked in medical labs when I was younger and encountered formaldehyde too often, but this beer turned me off completely with its bitterness and astringent taste. This beer would be better with more floral notes and sweet malt. But as it stands, it just didn't pass the muster this round. Seems off-balanced. There are better picks amongst the many taps handles at my favorite beer bar in NYC.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Twelve ounce brown glass, stamped OCT2907. I'm using a polygonal witbier glass.

Pours straight copper, slightly hazy, with a medium viscosity. Head got up to a finger but didn't last long. It was tightly beaded and laced the glass respectably.

Medium nose of grapefruit rind and a twinge of pale malt. Nothing new there.

A big hop presence on the tongue, of course. It's bitter bordering on astringent, like the pith of an orange. A little bit syrupy in feel thanks to a healthy addition of maltage. The pithy presence lingers. I would much prefer a more crisp hop bite to be honest.

OK, not great.

The first thing I thought when I poured this was: “Ooh. Nice color.” Crystal clear with a gold/orange hue. Some head that seems to be leaving a good bit of lacing on the way down. Nose is heavy on the hops. Flavor is slightly tart with that thick hop presence. Feel is high in carbonation and comfortable. Very drinkable, if you can deal with the hops.

look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3

Aroma: Very fruity. Grapefruit, peaches, mango. It also had a flowery like aroma.

Looks: Slight haze. Amber/orange/copper (light) in colour. Average sized off-white head. Some lace.

Taste: Ruby red grapefruit, guava, mango, pineapple, pineapple. Very fruity, Idunno where all these tropical fruit flavours are coming from. There is a touch of honey sweetness at first with a good bitter finish. Some grassiness.

Mouthfeel: Medium to full bodied. Smooth, soft mouthfeel. Lower than average carbonation.

Overall, A great IPA!

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

Pours a fairly light transparent gold color with moderate head and huge lacing. Smells like a decent IPA but it is a bit metallic with only very subtle fruit aromas.

The taste is a pleasant surprise. Sweet and quiet satisfying. This is one of the best mouthfeels on an IPA I've tasted. I'm tasting my buddy's Hopslam simultaneously, so Mojo doesn't quite measure up to that, but it holds its own.

Overall: This isn't going to blow you away with its complexity, but it has great mouthfeel, and is a fairly cheap.

This has always been one of my favorite beers. Though I was introduced to the Looking Glass Series with Mojo's little brother, Hazed and Infused, I quickly saw that this brew was much more in line with my taste.
Fantastic nose with touches of orange zest, pine sap, and big amounts of Amarillo Hops. The taste is refreshing and crisp when icy cold, and only opens up as it warms. Never too oily or sticky as some bigger IPA's can tend to be, but never short on the finish. There is just enough sweet maltiness to counteract this lively hopped beer.
Mojo is one of the greatest IPA's made. There, I said it.

thanks to mmtmatrix for this brew! cheers

This extra beauty is a damn fine IPA. A rich hoppiness finds it way past the thick 2 finger, white, head and onto my unsuspecting tongue. Damn fine indeed. This light colored brew is full of bitter, hops, and feel. It's a great IPA to get for all occasions and I assume at a relatively low cost.

Overall, I will grab a couple of these if I see them again. Thanks again mmtmatrix for this great extra!!

Cheers!!
