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.

Deep amber color. Smells sweet and malty. Heavy roasted grain malt flavors dominate. Sweet, fruity hops. A little syrupy and virtually no bitterness. Light carbonation, medium body. Boozy.

Overall: No thanks. This is overly malty, sweet and boozy. There were a few sips where the flavor of grains dominated and that was somewhat pleasant, but really the sweetness and the booziness made finishing this one a chore.

Poured into a Magic Hat #9 pint glass. Bottom of can says Best By: 8/2/12. Whoops.

A- Pours a medium amber color with a full inch of beige head that retains a good while leaving sudsy cobwebs of lacing. It finally settles at a 1/4 inch head with a craggy surface of foam.

S- Very pungent hops that are more herbal and spicy than anything. Has a solid twang that's very earthy, almost barnyard-like. Quite unique.

T- Wet grass flavor with a bitterness that's very aggressive, yet different so it's interesting to take multiple sips in a row to see how it assaults the palate. Peppery spiciness throughout.plus notes of pine.

M- Dry with a lingering hop bite. Medium carbonation and a full-ish body. .

O- It's obvious that a different variety or blend of hops was used in creating this because there is no other IPA that has the same profile as Jockamo. Truly one of a kind and quite tasty as well. It also has held up well past its freshness date. It being in a can most likely contributed to that.

12-oz. bottle into a pint glass at my house on Nov. 7, 2012 (purchased at World Market in La Mesa (San Diego, Calif.) for $1.99 on Nov. 7, 2012). Caramel amber with two fingers of frothy white head. Good foamy retention on the sides and good on the top as well.

Smelled Cascade or Columbus hops (I’m usually pretty bad at knowing which hops are which). Also got sweet floral noted and a bit of dark fruit. Some caramel late and even some rye or iced tea notes.

Tasted as a toned down version of the smell. Not as much Cascade hops and got more citrus than I thought I would. Still got that sweet dark fruit taste like the smell. Some pale notes as well.

Light-to-medium body. Thin texture. Soft (below average) carbonation. Abrupt and slightly bitter finish.

Finished this beer pretty fast, but I’m not sure what that means. Overall it was pretty good but I wasn’t completely sold on the feel/palate. A couple of the ratings could have gone either way.

Half finger of head, light copper color.
Smell of pine is strong, ripe lemon in the background with the wet hay.
Pine bitterness from beginning to end. A one trick pony here.
Slightly sticky texture, moderate carbonation, medium body.
A fine drink, a standard IPA.

Had this beer at Tallahassee brew-fest

Appearance: Avrage, I cant say I remember anything decent about it
smell: meh
Taste: not good
mouthfeel: also very average

overall: When I drink Abita, I have fairly low expectations, and I feel as if this beer did not meet any of them. Its been a day since I drank it and I cant even really remember anything decent about it

their are much better IPA's at better prices than this, I suggest you get them instead.

12oz Bottle into a pub glass

A - Easily a two finger head off the pour, very frothy, copper color

S - A sweet malty smell, with a hint of fruit

T - Not what I expect from an IPA, very malty, no real hop bite to speak of. The malt dominates the flavor of the beer, and for me it is just not what I am expecting from an IPA.

M - Good carbonation and good body.

O - Not impressed with this beer, and honestly dont find this to be a good representation of an American IPA. Overly malty and lacking any hop bite to speak of, I wont be having this beer again. Nothing wrong with the flavor, but just not what you expect from an IPA
