Pours a smooth, reddish orange, and is very radiant and bright. The color matches the gradient on the label perfectly. The head is a white foam, average, and pleasantly lingers and holds at the top for a while.

The aroma is a very strong citrus, as expected, with oranges and lemons dominating. I would say that it's tropical and warm, very inviting. I was equally impressed with the deep aroma as I was with this brew's color.

The taste is a bit standard for an IPA. Unfortunately, it's not very complex, though it still holds some weight. The citrus lingers and surfaces occassionally, and the strong ABV of this beer is masked well. I don't feel that there's much going on here beyond that. The bitter aftertaste is present, but not overwhelming.

I was truly impressed by the appearance of this beer and would have to say that the color of the body perfectly suited both the citrus theme and the brewer's label. The taste is pretty standard IPA, though I think the drinkability is great considering the ABV. Definitely recommended for a try, especially to IPA fans. :)

Poured from 12 oz bottle to a heavey goblet. It poured a clear light orange color with 1/2 in white head.

Smell was sweet malt, toffee, very faint hop. Not a lot going on here.

Taste is slighty sweet malt all the way thru with hops doing a weird balancing act. A very flavorful brew, just unexpected. Not a typical IPA.

Medium mouthfeel, with good carb.

If you want a typical, hoppy ipa this will not do the job. But take it for what it is and it is a pleasent surprise. A malt balanced IPA.

On tap at a crappy airport bar in Denver International Airport into a pint glass. Reviewed from notes dated August 30, 2013.

A-My brew arrived with about one finger of sticky, white head. The lacing is pretty good. The brew is golden-orange color and mostly clear. A good look for the style.

S-The aroma is a bit off...I get some onion, straw, and floral scents from the hops. The malts are pretty dry and don't provide much aside from a slightly chalky, crusty bread note. It gets better as it warms with more floral notes and less onion.

T-The taste is similar to the smell, but slightly improved with more fruit and floral notes in the hops (and, I suppose, some fruit from the pale malts). There is some orange and slight bitter hit on the finish. The malts provide a little more balance on the tongue than in the nose.

M-The feel is soft with a moderate body and a lightly oily, coating feel. Carbonation is mild.

O-This beer is fair. I could not get into the hop flavors here, which were sort of odd and non-descript. The malts are sort of absent on the nose, but make an appearance as the brew gets warmer and provide a nice bit of balance. On the positive side, this brew looks good and has a nice feel.

12oz. bottle.

Poured a hazy orange yellow color. Significant floaties and a small off white head.

Smell was delicious. Grapefruit and honey.

Taste was quite hoppy, but more of an herbal character (grass and pine). Sweet popped up in the middle, caramel-like. Hop bitterness lingered well in the aftertaste. Quite well balanced.

Mouthfeel was medium in body, and seemed to be highly carbonated. Finish was very dry. Had an acidic/biting nature to it that I didn't care for.

Overall, a good IPA, and well balanced, but the mouthfeel knocked down my enjoyment. Plenty of other beers with equally good flavor, and a better mouthfeel.

Boulder Mojo India Pale Ale pours from the bottle to a gold/tan color with a body that has just the slightest chill haze. The nose on this beer is fruity and just slightly spicy and the foam is good, provided you pour assertively.

The taste of this beer is fruity with the flavor of grapefruit juice dominating. There are some other flavors present as well, like pale malt, bread, caramel, and some pine. Toward the end, I can detect some other fruit flavor, possibly melon, before settling back to the taste of grapefruit.

Mojo IPA is a fruity brew and while there are other flavors present, the taste continues to return to the flavor of grapefruit. It almost seems like actual grapefruit was used in the production, but according to the manufacturer, it doesn’t have any such ingredient- it is the Amarillo hops that help create this grapefruit character.

I love a good IPA and I agree this is a good one and certainly a nice change from other IPA. I don’t think I could drink this as an everyday IPA because the citrus emphasis is not the type of flavor I want to taste on a regular basis. But it is still a good IPA and one worth adding to your list of beers to try.
