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.

This is one freaky beer.

Pretty reddish brown color. Nice lacing on head. Smell a little funky--oniony, maybe? Just a little bit of hoppy bitterness--not as much as one tends to expect from an IPA.

Here's where things get strange. I'm not a beer expert--just a beer liker--so I don't know the lingo, but I could swear this beer tasted kind of like cheese or smoked sausage (pepperoni, maybe) or fennel or pizza (my dining companion said Totino's Pizza Rolls, which is pretty apt). I wondered if I got a dirty glass until I saw another reviewer mention that s/he thought it tasted like pizza bites, too. I'd swear mine did.

I wouldn't say it's bad; I finished my pint (I think part of that was just trying to figure out what the heck was going on). I would say it's strange, and I don't plan on having another.

12 oz bottle with best by date on neck.

Appears a bright clear dark copper aroma. Cream colored head. Good head retention. Hop aroma is slightly spicy. Brady, biscuity malt aroma in there too.

Taste is fairly balanced for an IPA. Caramel, toffee, earthy hops. Medium body, moderate carbonation. Drinks fairly smooth.

Overall, a solid IPA.

12 ozer, no date.

Appearance: Nearly clear golden orange. Very thin head, some spotty lacing. Not bad.

Smell: Not super hoppy. A fair amount of caramel malt. Spicy, earthy, piney, citrus hops in that order. Pretty solid, not bad.

Taste: Very similar to the smell. Earthy, spicy, citrus, pine hops. Caramel malt. Nice balance.

Mouthfeel: Carbonation nice and lively. Vaguely creamy. Nice.

Overall: I'm really surprised here. This is a solid IPA. No shit.
