Mojo India Pale Ale brewed by the Boulder Beer company - Boulder, CO


Mojo India Pale Ale brewed by the Boulder Beer company - Boulder, Colorado      

The definition of "Mo-Jo": 1: A magic spell or charm; magical power; 2. Herbaceous ale that summons hop attacks. Pale in color, but packed with flavor, Mojo reflects the perfect balance of hop bitterness and malt character. The Unique amarillo hop creates a bit citrus flavor with an untra-crisp dry finish. 7.20% ABV
 

Boulder Mojo India Pale Ale

       
Beer Review by Beer Advocate:
Appearance - Pours an inviting crystal clear, yellow-golden with a full 3-finger, soapy white head possessing great retention. Substantial lacing is left behind when consumed.

Aroma - Orange, white grapefruit rind, slight pine resin and (despite the not-overwhelming 7.2% ABV) a touch of alcohol is detected. As the head subsides, notes of pineapple reveal themselves. Pretty complex...

Taste - Sugar coated citrus is immediate which tails off into a dry, but pleasant white grapefruit finish. Nothing overwhelming, but just enough bitterness to beg another taste. As the brew warms, I do a get a hint of piney resin.

Mouthfeel- Ale yeast provides the backbone for a beautiful head and decent carbonation. Smooth and predictable mouthfeel for the style.

Overall - A really solid, highly drinkable West Coast-style, American IPA and one that I can enjoy again and again. I'll have to up the ante and try Mojo Risin' the next time 'round. If you can get it fresh, however, do yourself a favor and grab a 6'r of Mojo IPA.
  

      

Colorado's 1st Microbrewery
The Boulder Beer Company was Colorado's first microbrew and the forty-third licensed brewery in the United States. It was founded on September 25, 1979 by David Hummer, Alvin Nelson, and Randolf Ware. Ware and Hummer were physics professors at the University of Colorado at Boulder and home brewers. When the laws surrounding home brewing were relaxed, the brewery originally started on a farm in a "goatshack."

History of Boulder Beer Company
The Boulder Beer Company was originally known as the Boulder Brewing Company and went public in 1980, raising over US$1.7 million. A decade later, in 1990, the company changed its name to Boulder Beer company when Gina Day took the company private. In 1993 the company again renamed itself as the "Rockies Brewing Company." In 2002, the Rockies Brewing Company entered into a strategic agreement with Rock Bottom Breweries allowing Rock Bottom to brew and sell their Singletrack Ale. In 2005, the company again changed it name back to the Boulder Beer Company.

Boulder Beer's Activities
The Boulder Beer Company is also known for being civic minded. In 2008, it became a sponsoring partner in Boulder's "10 for a Change Challenge," a program designed to reduce energy consumption by 10% via eco-friendly improvements for increased energy efficiency. In addition to being a sponsor for the challenge, the Pub is already PACE Certified (Partners for a Clean Environment) using bio-diesel fuel, recycled/compostable "to go" containers, and recycling. The brewery uses 100% recycled 6-pack carriers and non-petroleum based inks.
Every year, the Boulder Beer Company participates in "Beer 4 Boobs," a nationwide charity program raising money for the Susan G Komen Breast Cancer Foundation. They also host an annual "Goatshed Revival" Beer Festival in honor of their first brewery that was in a shed shared by goats. Part of the planning of the revival is a homebrew competition wherein homebrewer compete to have the Boulder Beer Company brew and distribute their homebrew. Proceeds from the Goatshed Revival are donated to the Community Food Share, a non-profit organization feeding the community's poor.
