Jockamo I.P.A. is a traditional India Pale Ale made with the best pale and light crystal malts that give the beer a copper color and malty flavor. This full-flavored beer is hopped and dry hopped liberally with Willamette and Columbus hops from the Pacific Northwest and has a 6.5% A.B.V. The spicy aroma of the hops contrasts nicely with the pleasant sweetness of the malts. Jockamo has a flavor that entices and excites the palate.

12 oz bottle with best by date on neck.

Appears a bright clear dark copper aroma. Cream colored head. Good head retention. Hop aroma is slightly spicy. Brady, biscuity malt aroma in there too.

Taste is fairly balanced for an IPA. Caramel, toffee, earthy hops. Medium body, moderate carbonation. Drinks fairly smooth.

Overall, a solid IPA.

12 ozer, no date.

Appearance: Nearly clear golden orange. Very thin head, some spotty lacing. Not bad.

Smell: Not super hoppy. A fair amount of caramel malt. Spicy, earthy, piney, citrus hops in that order. Pretty solid, not bad.

Taste: Very similar to the smell. Earthy, spicy, citrus, pine hops. Caramel malt. Nice balance.

Mouthfeel: Carbonation nice and lively. Vaguely creamy. Nice.

Overall: I'm really surprised here. This is a solid IPA. No shit.

A: Copper orange color when poured into pint glass producing a one finger off-white head with decent retention and some lacing.
S: Malt, hop, pine and carmel aromas emerge from the glass.
T: Sweet malt dominates this brew and overtakes the expected IPA hoppy presence that never quite takes off because of the malt. A bit off-balanced for the style. Some spice and caramel presence are also noted.
M: Medium body with good carbonation. More malt than hops throws off my mental picture of an IPA. However, it results in a tasty beer.
O: I enjoyed this somewhat atypical IPA and would have another.

I picked up a 6pack of Jockamo from Wegmans for use in a beer batter. The beer batter came out amazing. I later tried it on its own, my first time having an IPA. I can taste the caramel malts but that's about it. The aroma is eh. It is pretty crisp and is a wonderful red/orange color. Overall not bad, wouldn't turn down if on sale.

Obtained as a mixed six-pack at the local grocer.

A full finger of off-white froth tops a murky amber body. Some lacing on the Yankees pint glass, and not bad head duration. Fair hop notes, with grassy aromas and some citrus mingling with caramel and biscuit malt which is nice but a bit imbalanced for an IPA.

The taste is pretty good, if one likes IPA with more prominent malt than hop characteristics. The Willamette and Columbus hops are good when not tamped down, and the piney, somewhat resiny flavor is most welcome, but is largely submerged to the tasty caramel and biscuit malts.

The mouthfeel is probably the most disappointing aspect, for it is largely smooth and devoid of good hop grit and flavor. This is a fairly enjoyable beer, but overall pedestrian IPA that doesn't stack up to others; not close. The hop-malt imbalance is frustrating, making this a rather interesting amber instead of the type of appealing IPA it should be.
