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 - 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.
