The beer is cloudy with a small white head. The head sticks around for a while before settling to a thin white film on the surface of the beer. There's some spotty lacing as the beverage is drained.
This is easily the least potent smelling drink I've had in the entire IPA family of styles. There's no malts and really only a tiny smack of bitter hops. It's really kind of shocking since I find the Mojo standard to be a pretty damn good IPA overall.
Taste and Mouthfeel:
Again I'm pretty disappointed, this beer drinks a little bland. Up front there's some citrus hop bitterness which transfers in to a touch of malt sweetness but then it's over aside for some bitterness in to the aftertaste. The mouthfeel isn't too bad though. There's a good base of carbonation to back an otherwise smooth drinking beer. To this beer's merit, the alcohol is very well hidden though at 10%.
If the flavors were a little more rich and the smell was a little more potent then this would have been one of the more drinkable DIPAs I've ever had given its good mouthfeel and ability to quell the 10% ABV. Unfortunately the beer is kind of a yawn and that hurts the drinkability.
I had really high hopes for this beer because I really enjoy the Mojo and their Hazed and Infused but this was a really unimpressive beer for me and I can't allow pedigree to boost the score. Not Boulder brewing's best beer by a long shot.

A - This beer is a beautiful translucent dark amber, with a fine, almost-white head. Very rich color!
S - I get a lot of plum, dark fruits, some grape... slight hints of chocolate or toffee. Not a strong smell, but pleasant.
T - Same as smell, but the hops are much more present. Aftertaste is fruity and hoppy, and sorta dark for a DIPA. Alcohol is masked pretty well as a 10% ABV, but there is a pretty noticeable warmth in the throat.
MF - Smooth and slightly on the heavy side. Medium hop oils on the palate. Carbonation is medium-light, just right for my liking.
Overall this DIPA is heavier and fruitier than others that I've had, it leans toward being a Belgian almost- with much more hops. It's unique for its style and much under-appreciated. Maybe this was a good batch or something. Usually I agree with BA reviews but I'm seeing much more in this beer than what I see here. It's quite enjoyable and I recommend picking it up!

A- The deep color is impressive. The clarity is interesting. It pours a bit sloppy with no real head. Bottle states best by 7/8/14.
S- Very weak aroma. I can smell the hops, but it doesn't hit me very hard. There is nothing particularly off putting, but it doesn't grab my attention either.
T- The taste has some citrus flavor. It doesn't sit and stay awhile. It passes very quickly with no impressive aftertaste. It's a refreshing beer for such a high alcohol content. It's smooth, not overpowering. Doesn't leave me wanting a second.
M-It holds a cream feel in my mouth. There is a spotty feeling, doesn't fill my taste buds. It hits one corner, then leaves quickly. Gives it a mysterious undertone.
O- I would enjoy this beer in late August on a porch in northern Wisconsin. I appreciate it for what it is/wants to be. It's very non-conformist, I'm going to do what I want- kinda beer. It's just being what it wants to be, not impressing, but not unreliable either. I would drink it again, just not one after another. It's really good at hiding the high alcohol content.
