Today is a hustle day, as the last season of Breaking Bad is now available on Netflix, and I need to catch up super fast pronto. One of the better, if not the best, shows on television today, and I don't want to wait any longer to see its awesomeness first hand.
Today's beer is Mojo, an IPA brewed by Boulder Beer. I guess I can and probably should consider this a West Coast vacation beer, as I actually drank it during a layover in the Denver airport on our way to San Diego. So, a "vacation" beer, even if we weren't yet at our final destination. I had this out of the bottle at an airport restaurant, so no comments on aroma or color, unfortunately. This IPA has a really nice hop bitterness right up front - definitely a strong hop profile here. There's classic pine and grapefruit flavors, but you pick up malt in there too, along with a crisp, clean, dry finish. If you're in the market for an IPA, this is a great one to take home.

Cool history behind Boulder, which bills itself as Colorado's oldest microbrewery. Two Colorado U. professors started brewing back in 1979, and their original location was on a small farm that they shared with a few goats. While it's only a seasonal release, if you ever spot Boulder's Killer Penguin, buy it immediately and without question. It's a barleywine, and it's outstanding.
Next time I'm in Colorado, I'm running the Manitou Incline. You gain almost 2,000 feet in elevation in the span of a mile, which equates to a 41% incline grade. It takes Olympic athletes almost 20 minutes to run this mile. Who's with me?
Thing to Think About Today:
Let's think about Jim Morrison, also known as Mr. Mojo Risin (an anagram of his name). If I'm going with the Doors, I'm going for a favorite deep cut, Love Street:
"I wonder what they do in there...."
