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.

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a Delirium Tulip (beer certainly didnt warrant such a nice glass btw). But I digress, read on:

A - minimal head from a vigorous pour. No lacing or collaring evident. Clear light orange color.

S - very light on the nose. hints of orange, faint other citrus notes. almost no perceptible hopiness.

T - same underwhelming taste as the nose. citrus is even fainter here with almost no linger. finishes clean only because it didnt have anything in the front. There is a maltiness and mild sweetness that while not cloying is unwelcome with the absence of other moderating flavors.

M - Finishes clean, but there is some uneeded sweetness that clings.

O - Maybe the bottle is old, but I didnt detect any hints of a "bad" bottle. For those looking for a quality IPA, look elsewhere. Brings nothing to the game anyone looking for an IPA would be expecting. A poor representation of the style and one that I MIGHT try if on tap fresh...if it were bought for me.

First off, I think this beer is severely underrated. It might not be the most robust or heavy hitting IPA out there, but it is just absolutely bursting with layers of complexity and subtlety.

A- Stunning amber, rosy color with just a very slight haze. Pours a nice head that quickly dissipates.

S- The nose is the best thing about this beer. There's a lot of citrus that is simultaneously paired with a spicy rye aroma. If you dig deeper that rye smell separates into a bready smell along with a bit of skunk. The citrus smell that comes through is like spiced orange peel with something sweet and spicy like lemon pepper.

T- That lemon pepper comes through even more. It's spicy and fruity all at the same time. The pine taste lingers near the finish along with some of that rye and bready taste just ever so subtly.

M- Not the best mouth in the world, but it's so light that you can take a big gulp of this beer without realizing it. Leaves a nice dryness on the tongue- one that you would expect from a rye-forward IPA.

O- This is a very unique beer and one for a very complex palate. If you're into Rye PAs then this would be a great beer for you.

Poured from bottle into pint glass

Appearance – Pours a golden –orange color with a two finger off white-orange tinted head. The head has very nice retention, but eventually fades leaving light lacing.

Smell – A sweet fruity and malty aroma of bread and citrus hop are the base of the smell. The citrus is of both tangerine sweet as well as some grapefruit notes. Behind these aromas is a lighter pine aroma and a little bit of caramel. Overall quite a nice smell.

Taste – The taste follows the nose well. A malty sweetness with caramel and bready flavors start out the taste. These are soon meet with a citrus tangerine flavor. Toward the middle of the taste it bitters more as tastes of pine work their way to the forefront. This pine, in the end, mixed with a light grapefruit and earthy hop to finish off the taste, leaving a rather odd bitterness on the tongue.

Mouthfeel – The body is just above normal with a just below average level of carbonation. It is fitting for the style, although a little more body and a little higher carbonation may suit respectively the sweet malt and bitter citrus a little better.

Overall – Not a bad IPA, but not the greatest either. It had a very nice aroma and the taste starts out good, but at the end the hop flavors don’t seem to go tougher too well.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Orange-amber color with thick pearl colored head. Lots of lacing along sides of glass.

Smell is musty and malty. Not much citrus here. Odd smell.

Taste is sweet malt. No citrus flavor and very little bitterness.

Mouthfeel is watery with average carbonation.

Overall...fair.
