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.

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.
