Review – Boulder Mojo Risin’
From Boulder Beer Co. – MoJo Risin’ Double IPA is a souped-up, extreme version of the one and only MoJo India Pale Ale brewed by Boulder Beer Company. Taking the MoJo IPA recipe to the next level, the brewers added 50% more malt and twice the amount of Amarillo hops. 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.
Appearance: Pours a beautiful amber with a thick creamy 1 inch head. It’s translucent with a small amount of RISIN’ bubbles.
Aroma: Grapefruit and orange zest and light amounts of bready malt.
Taste: Starting out, the beer comes across as sweet, then mildly bitter and citrusy hops roll across your tongue. The bitterness lingers, but it is not overbearing. I definitely tasted caramel malts, and citrus flavors of orange, grapefruit and lemon.
Mouthfeel: Sticky and fizzy.
Overall: A fantastic version of a Double IPA. I can’t say a bad thing about this beer. I can’t get the Doors out of my head, but that is not the beers fault.
