Here's the real history. True Anchor Steam is an original early American small brewery beer. However, Pennsylvania has served Yuengling is a small crafty brewery that's been around a helluva lot longer than Anchor and serves a helluva lot more interesting unique lager than Anchors lemony piss.
So where does Boulder Beer come in. Well Boulder Beer predates Sam Adams Beer. Although Boulder never made the big splash that Sam did. Boulder was an early new success and the beginning of a long line of new American Brewers who took on the giant USA crappy beer makers. I drank a Boulder beer back in 82 in downtown Boulder. Sam Adams never sold a beer until 1984! I surmise that this was genesis of the new American beer movement .
What about Mojo. Nice IPA. Reminded greatly of Duvel's Triple Hop in aroma and taste. I am not an IPA type of guy, but this was good to me. Thumbs up. A strong 3. Plenty of good flavor.
Drink to the sounds of some nice music that has come from the Boulder area. One in particular was a drummer who taught for a few summers at the Naropa Institute named Jerry Grannelli. I enjoyed was a Jerry's duet cd called Iron Sky.

A - 3.75 - NIce golden clear color with a big white head that sticks around forever, leaves a nice lumpy lacing too.
S - 3.5 - Smells like dirty, earthy hops, with bready, raisin-y malt in the background. It says enjoy by July 18th, 2014 so I'm assuming this is how it's supposed to smell.
T - 3.5 - Dirty, earthy hops, with overly sweet malt in the background, and alcohol - a lot of it. This is probably close to the worst IIPA I've had. I'm trying to figure out where the rank taste is coming from because I love amarillo and centennial hops. Maybe they used a bunch of sugar to increase the ABV? Maybe the wheat malt (I've never used it in an IPA)?
M - 3.5 - Alc is so present it ruins the beer. Medium mouthfeel. Aftertaste is bitter, just bitter. No definition.
O - 3.5 - With a ton of Amarillo hops this beer should taste like straight up orange juice. Instead, it's just sickeningly sweet and dry undefined bitterness.
