Review - Boulder Beer Company's Mojo Risin
"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." -- Boulder Beer Company
Pours a dark yellow to light amber color into a clear body, with a fizzy, off-white head that leaves fair rings of lacing around the glass. Clear body that has very light carbonation. For a double IPA, it's not overly bitter scented, instead giving off a sweet citrusy grapefruit aroma that's drawing us in. Despite lacking the overt bitterness, it does have piney hop notes that open the drawbridge to the taste. Initial taste is heavily bitter with a chalky taste, that slightly dulls to a moderately bitter finish that leaves us with a tacky consistency. Light-bodied, it has a delicious finish with a dry texture and soft carbonation.
