Notes/Commercial Description:
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.

Phenomenal. The the immediate taste and aroma combination is flowery and reminiscent of candy or raw manuka honey. This sweetness however is very fleeting, and sets the stage for the intense bitterness of your average IPA. The aftertaste is like that of a sugarless dark chocolate.

It pours reddish burnt golden brown. Very red.

A very normal head, nothing out of the ordinary.

This is a fantastic beer; it's one of the few I could describe as "sweet yet serious."

Like may top raters I find Abita beers to be bland and mid-pack. But they do experiment, and in this case, push for a "mardi gra" boldness that's interesting, but not making me draw on this beer.

A: Give vigorous pour to get some loose and rough 1 finger head with lots of lace, over a very dark amber, mahogany body.
S: Not enough. Citrus, straw, and a bit metallic. (it's the water?) Even after warming, it's faint.
T: More to the taste, but still thin and lacking. Initially, a bit too sweet which made me go for a biscuit. Multi hued, but very subtle hops with a good finishing bite. Odd. A bit of corn and metal too.
F: too thin for me, low carbonation, not a lot of mouth feel.

Not coming back soon to this.
