COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Only 120 precious barrels were brewed, adding more than half a ton of extra malt and twice the amount of Amarillo hops, so prepare your self for a full sensory explosion. The double dry-hop addition elevates the grapefruit-like aroma and flavor to an outrageous intensity, while the added malt raises the alcohol level from 7% all the way to 10% by volume.

Like biting into a grapefruit. Good for a change of pace. Makes you hum Doors songs while you drink it.

sliffy (2040) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAR 15, 2007
Bottle: Pours a clear orange color with an off white head. Aroma, citrus and herbal hop notes, some grassy hops as well, some pale malts in the background. Flavor, pale malts, some herbal and citrus notes, a slight bitterness, really not that impressive.

Angeloregon (2055) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 14, 2007
UPDATED: AUG 23, 2008 Somewhat typical NW American styled double IPA. Very floral with a nice body. I was a little disappointed considering how much I love the regular Mojo. Still, well worth the price and quite enjoyable.

Curiously, not much darker than Mojo, even with all the extra malts and what not. Body didn’t seem much heavier, either -- albeit a bit more sticky. Grapefruit was definitely more resinous, though. Alcohol was hidden fairly well, although it did have a little nip that lingered. Somewhat cottony in the throat. Noticeable sweetness at its core; an obvious amped version of Mojo. Overall, I thought it was pretty good, but it seemed to lack complexity and depth.

A "meh" I2PA that wasn’t horrible nor heavenly. This could be a good daily drinker but not for a special occasion. Pine and chemicals waft off the glass to my nose. Tastes of candy and booze dance on my taste buds. Why such a light color?

incutrav (577) - Woodbury, Minnesota, USA - MAR 12, 2007
UPDATED: MAR 16, 2007 Not near as good as i thought. I like the regular mojo, so i figured this would be a hopppy mess, but not so much. Didnt taste any alcohol, but didnt leave much of a hop burn either. WAIT! Changed my rating, had another glass of this and for whatever reason was WAY better, full hop flavor and the alcohol is very well hidden. Still not my fav DIPA, and i agree that the original Mojo is probably a little better then this. Orginally only had a 2 oz sample, so that may have had somthing to do with it.

ElJefe (553) - Rochester, New York, USA - MAR 11, 2007
22 oz bottle. Pours golden yellow, actually on the lighter side of the spectrum for an IIPA. Nice aroma of pine and citrus is marred by an unpleasant hint of nail polish remover. Unpleasant alcohol in the aroma does not follow into the flavor. Alcohol is apparent on the palate, just not as harsh as the aroma would suggest. Flavor is earthy with a ton of pine and grapefruit, but pretty sweet as well, with caramel and bicuit. Solid brew, but nothing I would go to great lengths to seek out agian.

jpm30 (1587) - East Central, Georgia, USA - MAR 11, 2007
From a 22 oz. bomber bottle with no freshness date, a blurb along the left side of label, sampled after a few hours in the refrigerator in a tulip glass. Poured a slightly hazy reddish golden orange with a small foamy white head that settled into a thin bubbly lacing. Aromas of pine oil, earthy dry leaves and citric rinds, a light biscuity maltness and big whiffs of fusel alcohol. Steady, moderate carbonation and a crisp, dryish, smooth light-medium bodied mouthfeel. An alcohol infused DIPA taste, the alcohol is noticeable from the beginning, solvent tasting and warming in the back of the throat, pine and flower oily, citrus rind, dry earth and leafy, sweet pale, grainy malts, and a dry alcoholic, hoppy, malty finish. A decent DIPA, a sipper that I am done with after one bomber.

RiverHorse (457) - New Jersey, USA - MAR 11, 2007
UPDATED: FEB 15, 2008 This beer pours a clear amber color with a rich frothy head. Hops really slammed my nostrils on the pour. I smelled hops and a good helping of citrus on the nose. The pour and the smell really make you want to gulp the beer. This is a tremendous double IPA. The hops explode on your taste buds. The citrus flavors (especially orange) dance around your tounge. The mouthfeel is excellent. I am excited to try a few more of the beers from Boulder if this is any indication of the quality of the brewer. GREAT BEER!
