Mojo India Pale Ale -- Great beer, even better given its low cost

How does it look? How's the color? Clarity? Head?

  • Golden and cloudy like a light cider, very little head

How's the nose (smell)? Sweet, spicy, fruity?

  • Equal parts malt, citrus (yellow, like lemon or yellow grapefruit), and hoppy bitterness

How does it taste? Malty? Hoppy? Fruity? Chalky?

  • Initial taste is somewhat sweet with a little citrus dryness then strong but pleasant hops bitterness

Is it full-bodied? Medium bodied? Weak? Clean?

  • Medium bodied and mostly clean -- there is an aftertaste but it is not overpowering or long lasting

Where did you buy it? How much was it?

  • Birmingham AL $10 for a six pack (bottles)

What do you think overall? Would you buy it again?

  • Mojo is a higher gravity (7.2%) IPA but is not as sweet as others that get into that %age alcohol and the hoppiness is not overpowering and consistent from initial taste until the aftertaste has faded--this seems to be true even if the beer warms past the chill point most of us prefer.  The six pack cost $10, no lie.  It won't replace Sweet Water's IPA as my favorite, but it is now running a very close second.  One warning though, it does not taste like it carries the punch it has so if you drink it at your normal standard %age beer ... you will hate yourself in the morning.

I name and describe everything and classify most things. If 'it' already had a name, the one I just gave it is better.
