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.

Below average IPA, truth be told. It has a little flavor but relatively bland.

Pours hazy golden copper, almost Belgian. Huge white head.
Hoppy citrus, florals, mostly grapefruit.
Great grapefruit citrus, resin oil and earthy hops.
Good carbonation, mild, and a good bit of bitterness.
I'll be sure to try this again.

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).
