Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a Shaker pint glass, "best by" date 10-21-15.

APPEARANCE: pours a clear, copper color with less than one-finger off-white head that dissipated slowly until a thin, broken layer of small bubbles remained, medium carbonation, significant lacing on the glass.

SMELL: very pleasant to the nose, caramel, flowery with pine and grapefruit.

TASTE: the taste follows the nose, initially sweet caramel and bread then grapefruit and pine, the 7.2% ABV is very well hidden and gives this beer a nice warming effect.

PALATE: medium body, medium carobonation.

OVERALL: this is a great smelling and tasting beer, not unlike Summit Saga IPA, I really enjoy the citrus grapefruit note in hops and the finishing hops made a great smelling beer as well, I would recommend this to anyone who enjoys the style and will definitely buy this again.

Boulder Brewing co. Mojo IPA.

A: a light amber with a thin head on top.

S: lots of sweetness, light roasted malt balances everything well, pineapple, orange peel, lily flowers, alcohol.

T: light malt, bitter piney lupulin balanced by a lot of malty sweetness, lemon peel.

M: hop bitterness hits the tongue first then gets balanced out, it @ lingers a long time with sugary malt on tongue. the lupulin is up in my sinuses but I dig it.

O: a dope IPA. One of the best I’ve had out of Colorado. Sweet, hoppy, yet well balanced. Don’t drink this if you don’t want a sugar bomb though. 4.55/5.

Bottle at America on Tap.
Deep golden color, big rich caramel maltiness with some earthy pine and resin to counter. Pretty good easy drinking slightly sweet IPA.

Clear gold with two fat fingers of white craggy white and good lacings. Head lasts about ten minutes.
Smell is sweet bready malts with minor floral hops.
Taste is mostly bread crust malts with a bit of hop bitterness in the finish.
Mouthfeel is medium with just enough carbonation.
Overall for a beer that is about a year and one half old it tastes like a good American Pale Ale!
So this beer is really old and I am surprised how tasty it is. Enjoy by Aug. 12, 2014.

12oz bottle best by dec162015 poured in a pint glass. Low lighting environment and think it poured golden. Clear. Great lacing and retention. Smell is tangerine, orange, and mango. So far so good then boom I taste it...and let down. Soapy bitter citrus and lemon. Finish with orange and no balancing malt. It does get better with warmth but I was a little let down :( not a terrible beer just unimpressed. Cheers!

This pours a clear, dark yellow color with a foamy off-white head. The aroma is rather strong with bitter citrus hops. The taste is hoppy and strong. Probably one of the more bitter beers I’ve had in awhile. Pretty powerful stuff for you hopheads!

Solid and unspectacular, Boulder's Mojo is straight-up, no-nonsense American IPA: good stickiness, thick pine notes, appreciable—but fairly herbal, even a little spicy, and ultimately not overwhelming—wet-grass bitters. It flashes a good golden-brown color, with moderate head, but disappointing sparse effervescence; there's solid lacing along the sides of the tulip's bell, but all other signs of foam dwindle to near-nothingness within moments. The aromas of Mojo, meanwhile, are a strong-suit, with a seriously funky nose: some odors of hard, aged-cheese rind and grapefruit pith predominate, but there's also fleeting gestures at sugar-cookies and white rum in the sugary esters that form the fat olfactory under-structure.

While not an IPA to grow wild over, Mojo is—as aforementioned—entirely solid, though not without complaints. It's a big, hop-blast IPA (along the lines of, say, Modus Hoperan—though not as pleasantly-biting or complex as Ska's shotgun-of-hops), so it's pretty boozy (7.2%) and doesn't strain to hide that fact; it's pretty heavy on the palate, leaving a residue of malts sugars and piney-syrup textures as its part-and-parcel finish; and it's pretty oligo-dimensional, hitting its handful of hop notes, built up on a hardy skeleton of grain-candy, and not featuring much else.

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.
