Last night beer session was an IPA night and the contenders were Mojo IPA, Two Hearted Ale, Stone IPA and Goose Islands IPA. All four brews were poured at the same time and tasted as well. Unfortunately Mojo was my least favorite of all. Poured a hazy golden yellow with a small fizzy off white head. The head mostly lasted and left a fair amount of lacing. I had trouble with the aroma. I felt it was bland to perhaps light in scent. The initial flavor was lightly sweet yet it end with an acidic aftertaste. The body was light to medium, watery and slightly fizzy in carbonation. In all I'm not a fan of Mojo, this is not to say that Mojo is not a good brew. The winner that night was Bell's Two Hearted Ale.

Perhaps it was just a bad batch, but it tasted like pure metal. The whole thing. I had to force it down... Narrowly avoided the drain.

Marginal IPA. Boulder Beer should be able to do better.

This ale was a deep yellow in color, with a one and a half finger head that died down to a lot of lace.

The aroma was of strong bittering hops, a hint of citrus and pine, and a good malt undertone.

Unfortunately, it did not follow through to the taste. The taste was bitter, and a little lemony. It was very hoppy, with almost no malt... and the aftertaste was like wet cardboard. This aftertaste kept coming back every time I burped, even half an hour later.

Mouthfeel was OK... drinkability is only average.

This beer starts out great, but then just falls off a high cliff ...

Great looking brew. Pale orange hazy body. Amazing pillowy head lasts for the entire pint. A strong but sweet hoppy aroma. Taste is a different story: not too good. Bitter hop flavor is decent but there is some weird artificial sweetener-like taste in the background. It's hard to put my finger on it exactly, but I know that it is not good. Raw alcohol in the finish. Aftertaste is pretty bad too. I'm tasting soap in the aftertaste, along with that weird artificial flavor again, only this time it comes back stronger.

This brew started out good (appearance, smell) but after tasting it, I became disheartened. I was looking forward to a great IPA, but no delivery here.

Aroma: Moderate floral hoppy notes, strong carmel backbone, slight metallic notes that are a little unpleasant.

Appearance: Clear amber orange pour with a sticky and sudsy white head.

Flavor: Big malty munich base with resiny and floral hop flavors. Background alcohol notes. Orange and citrus fruit persists. Finish is clean and dry.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied, slightly oily, moderate high carbonation.

Overall impression: An immensely drinkable malt forward APA. Maybe I didn't get a fresh sample but I thought the hop profile was too muted for an American IPA. Probably won't re-visit.

Enjoy by 3/27/14.

Pours a clear golden orange with a foamy orange-white head that settles to a small cap on top of the beer. A foamy lattice of lace coats the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grapefruit juice, and citrus zest aromas. Taste is much the same with metallic, pine, and herbal hop flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty poor beer that smells decent enough, but there is something making this one super metallic tasting and fairly undrinkable.

Looks and smells great, but this beer is too bitter for my taste. The bitterness lingers for quite a while. It might be better with a meal or snacks, but not by itself.

Smelled of old hops. Might have been a bad bottle. 2-3 weeks out from best by date. Grainy. Not my style ipa. Rather disappointed overall

Unfortunately as I pour this one I see that the enjoy by date is 8 days from today. I now know this beer is at the end of it's life. This is golden in color with plenty of carbonation but lacks greatly in hop juiceiness and malt backbone. Slightly watery and has a touch of an old, stale taste. Def does not taste like an IPA

Pours a two-fingered off-white head that fades slowly leaving a good lace. Clear amber color. Moderate hoppy/floral nose. Light carbonation and medium bodied. Starts bitter, and plenty of hops, hints of sweetness. Bitter aftertaste. $1.75 for a 12oz bottle from Julio's Liquors Westborough, Ma.

A: Deep gold with very nice clarity and minimal carbonation. Rocky white head gets a good start before retreating to a thin layer. Leaves behind a generous lace.

S: Seems promising enough. A strong scent of grapefruit, lemon and pine great the nose. There is a mild fruity sweetness as well.

T: Metallic grapefruit, with a slight caramel malt sweetness underneath. That pretty much sums things up. Bitterness hits right away with the aforementioned metal and fruit. It's moderate, rather than over the top, but it doesn't taste that good to me. The extra fizz in the body isn't helping matters. Finishes with tart grapefruit and a hint of pine.

M: Medium body is slightly oily and has a bit too much fizz.

D: I'm sitting here really wanting to like this. Boulder is one of my local breweries, and I want to support them. But this beer just doesn't do it for me. Way too metallic to make me want another.

What you have here is an average ipa. Just a plain jane beer that is only represented by a cool label claiming its "mojo".

Appearance is very light orange with about a half inch head that last for 20secs or so. Minimal lacing which to me seems watered down.
Smell is of mild hops and citrus notes. (very light).
Taste is a lot like water, hops, and very little bitterness at the end.
Mouthfeel is a simple lightly carbonated easy to drink session.

Just ok.
