Boulder Beer Company - Mojo India Pale Ale

Purchased From: Harvest Fine Wines & Spirits
Serving Type: 12 oz. bottle, poured into a Mark Twain pint glass

Boulder's Mojo IPA pours a bold straw body with yellow, almost chartreuse, glow. There's a slight haze to the otherwise clear liquid. The head is large with an airy foam consistency. It's got insane lasting power with a sticky quality that produces extensive lacing on the glass. The earthy and floral hop aroma is initial noticeable followed by a slight grapefruit perfume.

The mouthfeel is velvety, padded by mild malts. Soon, the strong hops battle back the tamed malt body. The hops are higher on bittering than aromatics, but they create a well-rounded presence. The hops almost reach a level of tartness as they can be felt on the inside of your cheeks. A bit of alcohol comes through on the finish, but it is understated and easily tolerable.

Final Verdict: B
