Get Your Mojo Workin' For Cheap

Another Kelly Liquors old beer sale for you, but beware: this is an IPA, a style that feels the brunt of a life spent on warm, bright shelves quickly. Boulder's Mojo IPA cases are selling for $14.99, down from a regular price of $7.99 a six-pack (that's close to $32 a case for those who don't want to do the math). The "enjoy by" date on the cases is 8/18/2011...not too bad, but I thought I was being clever and grabbed a cold six-pack out of the cooler to replace one of the sixers in the case so I would have cold beer to test when I got home. Little did I know that there was even older Mojo in the cooler with a best by 7/26/2011 date! And here I am now with my older than the on sale Mojo, drinking it and wondering what the month fresher Mojo tastes like. I will say that the enjoy by July 26 can still be enjoyable, with the grapefruity Amarillo hops still present amongst the time-pronounced maltiness. For the price, you could do much worse.
