Nitro-tap into standard pint glass at the Global Tap House in Edwardsville, IL. Once the nitro settles, the head becomes a nice creamy off-white cap, that leaves good lacing. Mostly clear yellow body, with bit of brown tint.

Not sure if the nitro affects the aroma but it is fairly muted overall. Still, floral and tropical hop notes come through with a very minor note of grapefruit/pine. A little caramel malt in the background.

Fairly typical IPA flavors following the aroma. The grapefruit/pine notes come through more in the flavor than the aroma. Just a hint of tropical fruit, and a smaller sweet malt balance than I would have expected from the aroma. Solid flavors overall.

Enjoyable, smooth and creamy mouthfeel due to the nitro. Very interested in trying the bottle version for comparison. Overall, solid IPA, and I liked the nitro version.

Tried on June 20, 2008 22oz
Medium, glossy, yellow white head. Beer is a well carbonated, pale peachy amber color. Initially clear, but becomes cloudy as more is poured from bottle. Smells like grass, corn, and pineapple matching the flavor profile. Mojo has a light to medium body and the alcohol is moderate. Almost has a "fresh hop" finish - light and sweet. Aftertaste, although hoppy and bitter, also has a distinct butterscotch flavor.

Enjoyed very much and would buy again.

This brew poured to a cloudy golden color with some deep orange highlights. Fair sized slightly off-white head that had very good retention and left lacing through out. The aroma was a nice mix of malt and hops. Malt gave a slight toasty scent that seemed to meld together with the hops nicely. The hop scent was a nice grapefruit aroma; it seemed to me that this might have been the clearest that a hop scent reminded me of grapefruit. The flavor of this one was good, while the hops where the predominant characteristic you picked up they where not overboard. The grapefruit noted in the nose seemed to be enhanced when hitting the taste buds. The malts seemed to give it a nice sweet flavor that again melded well with this hop character. Very nice flavor while being refreshing at the same time. This one is an easy drink even with it at 7+ ABV, which does not seem noticeable - though one at a sitting is enough for me. Overall, another nice brew from this brewery.

Pours golden, with lots of bubbles. Thin white head. Not much rention, with a bit of lacing. Smell is strong.Citris hops,and pine.Body is light to medium, and carbonated. Taste is of grapefruit,the hops tells the story from start to finish. Boulder has a winner.

On nitro tap, served in a pint glass. This was my first nitro IPA and I must say I was pleasantly surprised.

Poured a golden yellow color with a nice cream colored, inch tall head. Creamsicle Guiness came to mind. Smell was just average for me...I could smell the citrus but not enough hops, nothing to write home about. Taste was smooth and I could really notice the citrus and amarillo hops. Very light malt backbone and a dry finish. Mouth feel was super light, almost like water. It was weird not having that CO2 carbination, but I enjoyed the nitro. It definitely changed the dynamic of this beer. I could drink this beer all day. I'd like to compare it to the regular, bottled version.

It pours a quite clear orange amber, like carbonated honey. A finger of snug light beige head retains some time. Bridges of lacing span the inside of the glass.

In the aroma, there's traces of caramel malt and berry fruit, along with light pine and dry citrus. The merest touch of alcohol floats at the periphery.

Upon sipping, a brisk flow of toasted malt sweetness passes through, crisp with berry and caramel, and paired with an unusually upfront but muted nudge of alcohol. Dusty dry grapefruit is mitigated by a slightly richer note of pine. A touch of biscuit and residual malt blink on near the close, then hops dry and bitter a comfortably enduring finish. It's uncomplicated and refreshing, a cool combo.

Between light and medium bodied, the malt is just chewy enough and hops resiny enough to have a nice presence on the palate.

In a land of extreme and over the top brews, getting back to basics can be a novel appproach, and in this case, it works well. Rightly sweet and rightly hoppy, it's a balanced blend of the ABC's. There be alcohol here, but it mixes easily and the drinkability is enjoyably high. This six-pack will drain smoothly, and soon.

After trying the Mojo, really looking forward to finding more Boulder Beer brews (Boulder says they’re the first Colorado microbrewery).

Great pour, hazy amber orange with a foamy ivory head – nice lacing all the way down the pint glass. Carbonation never stopped.

Sharp florals and citrus in the nose, and then the grassy pines took over on the quaff – along with the florals and herbs. Quite a nice hop kick finish. Tad thin bodied, still quite crisp and tart.

Good sipper brew, gotta watch out for the 6/8% kick in the sack. Fine example of an IPA.

An IPA that kind of leans on floral notes more than anything else. Very nice, but not terribly potent. A perfectly solid, yet somewhat unexceptional, IPA.

Thanks to Jhammerly for this wonderful IPA.
Pours and orange golden yellow with a nice half finger white head that melts to a ring of medium sized bubbles.
Aroma is pure amarillo hops...bright and clean citrus scents.
Taste is sweet malt being taken over immediately by the citrus hops. Orange moving quickly to grapefruit peel. Noticable alcohol warmth as you swallow.
Mouthfeel is almost thick enough for a DIPA, however in aftertaste it leaves your mouth clean.
I like what has been done with IPAs lately....I think the experimental use of hops has created some wonder brews to experience as well as the higher ABVs.
Thanks again Jimi.

Poured a bottle into a pint glass, pours a dirty gold color with a minimal head that leaves a bit of lace on the glass. Smell is pretty amazing sweet and mellow, with a bit of spring time in the air, very fresh and I wish I could get this in a perfume for my wife. Taste is awesome very mild with a good citrus hop finish, mild at first with a bit of hop bitterness as it slides down your tongue and into your throught to your stomach. This is one fine offering from Boulder beer and probably one of my new favorite IPA out there, awesome stuff.
