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.

3.08/5  rDev -7.8%

A: Pours a reddish honey color, somewhat cloudy with under a finger of white head. No lacing, next to no film.

S: Not sure about this. Has a sweet honey-like scent with caramel and citrus. Has an over ripe quality to it. It isn't bad, but sort of weird.

T: Largely follows the nose. The honey flavor is here throughout, but the citrus hops and caramel, bready malts do a better job of showing themselves in the taste. There's a spicy quality to this as well.

M: A nice, medium body. Not as dry or bitter as you'd expect from an IPA.

O: This isn't a terrible beer, but I can certainly see some finding this off putting. At the end of the day, this isn't quite what I'm looking for in an IPA and probably won't purchase again.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass.

Pours medium copper with a smidge of white foam. Partially see thru. Strong pine smell, definitely hoppy. Light malty hoppy taste. Oily hop. Floral notes. Bitter fades out on the close. Sneaky spicy. Good.

Served in a Walter Payton shaker pint glass.

Jockamo! Sorry, just had to yell it out... This stuff pours a clear copper-brass topped by a finger of off-white foam. The nose comprises honey-drenched biscuit, light caramel, and a vague sense of orange zest. The taste sees a return of the biscuits and caramel, but now the orange is replaced by a vaguely bitter pine character. The two factions don't mix very well, but also don't clash all that much on the tongue, either. It's just a silent, tense room... The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a sorta dry finish. Overall, an okay IPA at best. ...That's all I've got...

Pours a rich bronze color with an off white head. Smells of pungent hops and a little skunk. Tastes of citrus and fruity hops, a little floral with a little bit of skunkyness. Lingering hop sweetness, again with the skunk in the aftertaste, thats the only part that bothers me. The beer isn't outdated and no leaking seal.. I'm guessing the skunk is coming from the hops because the overall taste of it isn't that horrible.. Could just be a bad pairing of hops.

4oz->Mini-Snifter

A ~ Copper with a gold hue. Looks like a pale ale.

S ~ Toffee & stale citrus, with whispers of grapefruit peels.

T ~ Toffee following through with lemondrops. Hops are earthy & fruity. Hints of ripe mango & straw.

M ~ Very smooth carbonation, very balanced. Moderately bitter & light in body.

D ~ Not something I would drink everyday, but very easy to knock back. Would not refuse one if offered. Very affordable for those looking for a cheap IPA.

3.68/5  rDev +10.2%

Poured into a 16oz Tulip Glass

Appearance - Dark Amber with hints of orange. There's a decent amount of haze here and the head, while only about maybe a finger, stays around and leaves behind some good lacing

Smell - This is a very sweet smelling IPA. I can smell some toffee/caramel mixed in with some spices and yeasts along with the typical grapefruit/citrus smell. The piney hops here are surprisingly subdued and don't overpower the senses.

Taste - The piney hops make themselves known almost immediately after I started drinking, but they're not "strong" piney hops, but it's still slightly bitter. There's also a subtle malt accent to it, along with the sweet caramel/toffee flavor.

Mouthfeel - Carbonation is fairly typical of what I'd expect out of an IPA. It has a creamy feel to it and the overall body is surprisingly light, which seems to fit the beer perfectly.

Overall - This is a pretty easy to drink IPA. It's not a terribly hoppy IPA, it manages to strike a balance as far as flavor goes. If you're looking for a different take on an IPA, it's worth checking out.
