3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
The Mojo IPA pours a straw color with tons of large particulates floating around (esp. the second half of the 22 - probably the most Iíve seen in a beer so far). It has a large, pillowy, white head that goes down to a bubbly film that laces the glass.
Its aroma is strong spicy, piney hops with some malt and citrus underneath.
Its taste is a whole lotta hops with a very strong, bitter finish (a little too much so). Itís a little metallic initially, and the mouthfeel is on the thin side.
Overall, an OK IPA. I think was a little too one sided (all hops) and prefer better balanced IPAs (Stone, Avery, Victory).

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Amber hued with small creamy head and above average lace. The aroma has notes of spruce and pine, mild grapefruit and lemonade, toasted caramel malts, and floral qualities. The taste started very bitter and piney, wow agressive and to the point! Some good malty and layered earthy tones do provide midsection balance. The finish has a very lingering hop juice and slight metallic feel to it. Lively and crisp mouthfeel, dry upon the finish. A good IPA but could stand a bit more initial balance and a touch more depth on the palate, overall quite quaffable.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
This bottled brew poured a large sized head of frothy fine to large sized off-white colored bubbles that left behind a very good lacing. The body was hazy and softly carbonated with a light yellow orange brown color. The aroma was a medium hoppy one that could be smelled form a distance. The mouth feel was initially strong with a strong hop bite that smoothened to a mild hop bite in the finish. A true hop lovers brew. The flavor was that of piney bitter hops with a strong emphasis on the hops. Hop lovers will lover this one and I highly recommend it for them.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
22oz. bottle. Poured a small off-white head with fine-medium sized bubbles that mostly diminished. The body was carbonated, hazy and the hue was yellow-gold. The aroma was very hoppy, malt, and citrus. The taste was sweet, sour, hoppy and tart with a lingering aftertaste. The mouthfeel was very hoppy and the lacing was sparse. This was too hoppy for my taste. Hopheads...this oneís for you!!

Pours light orange with a medium dissipating off white head. Hoppy aroma, light citrus. Hoppy, bitter flavor. Finishes dry. Decent but lacking.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Nice looking brew pours slightly cloudy dark golden with a big fluffy egg white head that is very nicely retained. Aroma is heaven for this hop head, strong notes of pine with a light dash of grapefruit juice. Intial flavor is bracingly bitter. A bit unbalanced in favor of the hops, but still tasty. Yummy.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle pours hazy orange amber with a giant head and significant lace. The aroma is hops with a noticeable malt foundation. The flavor is somewhat strong hops, and only somewhat malt foundation. The palate is OK. Overall, they were shooting for a Dreadnaught or Ruination, but fell short.

3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dreadnaught Lite. Clear amber, white foamy head. Nose is rich with citirc fruit hops, pine, caramel and toffee. Tastes like it smells, no details necessary. Full bodied, dry finish, and could make for a nice session IPA any day.

3.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear, amber ale with a large, frothy, white head. Good retention and excellent, cascading lacework. The aroma is rich and bold with heavy notes of toffee and citrus fruit. Dry, well-balanced, crisp flavor. Moderately bitter and mildy astringent. Full-bodied with a silky mouthfeel and light carbonation. Bone-dry finish. Different, but very drinkable. Nice.
