12oz bottle served in a standard pint glass.

pours a light orange/copper tone with about an inch and a half of white/off-white head; moderate retention and lacing.

aroma offers notably pine and citrusy (on the latter count, primarily grapefruit). there's a malty presence as well. taste mosty follows the nose, perhaps a floral note or two... hops are nicely balanced by the malt. a tasty, mid-range IPA - nothing spectacular but enjoyable. mouthfeel is light to medium bodied with average cabronation. i would see nothing wrong with having a couple at a sitting... that is, of course, assuming i was out of better options.

A= deep golden yellow, fair head, plenty of lacing.

S= immediate grapefruit but pleasant in that regard, nice sweet malts, florals, citrus notes and hints of nectarine.

T= nice grapefruit and then a sort of delayed hops bitters, not overdone; thick malts, hints of citrus and fruit, slight chewy-ness.

M= mildly bitter, slightly sweet and malty, very pleasant.

D= a definite must for anyone who appreciates great and flavorful IPA. Some similarities to Troeg's Hop Back in flavor. Session all over it.

Well slam me with grapefruit!!! This medium golden offering presents itself with a gorgeous head that dissipates into outstanding lacing leaving a surface chunky remainder. The smell attacks your nostrils with a citrus hoppy presence, with yeasty undertones. Taste is pure hops, but as a hophead..I am more than happy...the tartness and biterness remain throughout, but finish with a great tart aftertaste that lingers on the back palate quite nicely. Very drinkable...I would definitely have another. And I thought only Magic Hat had the carzy names and labels. Hopheads should try this one.

Pours a light pale yellow/orange with a settling white head.

Smells of dank, juicy hops with lots of tropical fruity citrus aromas.

Taste is similar to smell with an abrupt introduction to hop bitterness and mouth watering complexity. Malts come through after searching and warming offering an ideal balance.

Decent IPA. Would try it again.

Pours a clear golden color with one inch of white frothy head sitting on top. Great retention and some nice lacing.

Nice hoppy aroma is present. Tones of citrus and grass.

The taste is nice. Good citrusy hop, a nice little bitterness, and not much else.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied with a bright and clean carbonation.

Drinkability is moderately high with good flavor and low alcohol.

12 oz bottle given to me by a girl i know who got it from her boss who belongs to a beer of the month club. why he doesn't drink it, i don't know. the name "mojo" intrigued me.

A- slightly hazy, but mostly transparent golden honey in color with a yellowish sticky fluffy 2in of head that settles to 1/4in within a few minutes leaving finger-like clumps of lace in its wake.

S- sour orange/grapefruit candy with biscuits and a stickly floral hop leaf gravy. slight hay grassiness in the background.

T- not usually a fan of most IPA's, but this one caught me off guard. first there was instant caramel, then grapefruit and lemon and bitter orange just like the aroma suggested, then as soon as you swallow BAM! intense hops all over the palate that made me step back for a moment and wonder what the hell was going on. all that was followed by a resinous flowery pine sap toffee aftertaste that made me want to take another drink.

MF- kinda oily because of all the hop resin, yet crisp at the same time with ideal carbonation.

D- i had no problem finishing this bottle, but i think one is enough for me due to its boldness and intensity. the best IPA i've ever had.

edit 4/08: less than a year ago i didn't really dig ipa's and now it's my favortie style. it's funny how things change.

On cask at the Dandelion Pub in Philly. 2nd round of The Open on the telly. Hand pumped Into their classic dimple mug. Nice and smooth IPA. Feels like an ale from Scotland (but hoppy).

Poured from a 12oz standard pressure-cap bottle into a pint glass in high elevation Kalispell, Mont. Reviewed live.

A- Three-finger thick white head with long retention atop a golden body with active carbonation. Fine looking IPA.

S- Floral and fruity hops. Tasty pineapple, fruits and flowers. Like a hippie in a glass but smelling nicer.

T- Fruity and very juicy. Slightly bitter, but more sweet than anything.

M- Juicy and wet with a lighter body and clean finish. Nice feel for an IPA.

O- Great beer. Very happy with taste, smell and feel.

Purchased fromthe Underdog Sports bar and grill.

A- The bottle is quite colorful and unique. Very eye-catching. Pours a smotth dark apricot color. no head and no lace. It looks like butterscotch in a way.

S- very hoppy smell with a trail of citrus to finish off my nose. Very deep in smell and very inviting.

T- wet yet dry, hoppy yet wheaty. Its hard to describe. I can taste some grapefruit definitely and it adds to the flavor very well.

M- Like i mentioned wet yet dry. It goes down pretty easily

D- a very decent IPA and it goes down smooth. No issues and def worth a 6-pack.
