few of their other offerings, but I have a particular fondness for this beer before I have even tasted it...
You see, Mojo has been my nickname since I was about 2 years old...The handle was given to me by my great-grandfather who played professional baseball (as a catcher) with a pitcher - also named Matt - who picked up the name based on the way his slider would drop as if he had placed a spell on the ball.
Once I saw the name of this brew I knew I MUST have it - and it certainly helps that it is an IPA!
Boulder Mojo IPA is a 7.2% ABV, pale and cloudy apricot colored brew with a two-finger white head of big, lacy bubbles. The label features a psychedelic-colored hurricane spiral in front of a multi-colored trippy background (Boulder is known for its population of Hippies!).
The beer smells pungently of piney hops with lots of grapefruit aroma. The first sip is a wallop of Amarillo hops and the higher alcohol is noticeable in the middle. More hop flavors at the end burst in with spicy and citrus notes to finish the brew. This is everything I hoped it would be to represent my namesake!
Now I just need to go out and find their Mojo Risin' - the double IPA!
SIDE NOTE: I just realized this is my 500th post! Kinda fitting, right? Here's to the next 500...Cheers, and thanks for reading!
