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.

ya know, we don't really need another overly sweet, super sticky full bodied ipa out there do we? I mean, this one is all fine and good, but compared to the field, it barely beats average. the pour is redder, copper maybe, dirty old penny color, but clear, with quite an active white head. off to a good start. the nose is residual sugar and generic high alpha hops, sweeter than it should be with some caramel leftovers. the flavor is the same, more sugary than it should be for the style, and the hops just aren't standout to me in any way. there a lot of oil, and a lot of body to this. itd be better as a bread base or as a pork shoulder marinade than as a drinker, for me at least. long lasting finish with equal parts hop oil and damp grains. nice feel though, good bubbles and thickness, I like the body in this one, but it is a little heavy going. overall too much sugar left in it, but its not a bad beer. maybe a better fit in the American pale category, but it wont be a chore to finish off the other four bottles of this in my fridge. B level.

Poured from a 12oz can into a pint glass in high elevation Libby, Mont. Reviewed live. Best-by date 2/12/13, so it's a tad past its prime. Wish I had seen that a week ago.

A- Two-finger slightly off-white fluffy head. Several-minute long retention with some translucent ropes of lacing. Amber-red body with high clarity. Fairly attractive,

S- Pine and citrus. Some caramel malts. Not a very developed aroma, but not unappealing.

T- Medium bodied malts and some steely hops. Metallic and slightly bitter. Not a nice taste in my opinion.

M- Heavy and balanced toward the front. Finishes clean and wet.

O- It is an alright beer, a poor IPA and a good showing from Abita, a brewery I'm learning doesn't turn out much good national stuff.
