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.

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.

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 a golden amber, slightly cloudy, and an agressive pour gives a two finger fluffy white head, with really nice lacing. Smell isn't shy, lots of floral hops, a little piney. Taste is very hoppy in character, not as overpowering as I remembered it being, which was actually a pleasant surprise for some reason. Good mouthfeel. I'm not going to say anything new that hasn't been said, just that I really like drinking this beer.

Very hoppy American high citrus and medium floral. Light sweet malt serving as a good solid backbone. Smells great!

Light yellow/amber. Clear. Light head – white and foamy/bubby. Could have stronger head.

Bitter edge. Tart American hops – again high citrus (grapefruit – a lot like grapefruit juice actually). Light sweet clean malt backbone with light caramel sweetness. Quite tasty! Finishes medium-high dry / medium-low bitter.

Medium-light body. Smooth. Mild carbonation. Bitter hop presence.

Mojo is impressively good. I really like it. Nice and bitter, very tasty and very drinkable. Could benefit from a stronger head, a little more malt, and definitely more carbonation. Top-shelf American IPA. I wish I could buy it around here.
