Abita Brewing Co.
Louisiana, United States

Style: American IPA

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.

A - Pours a copper/amber color with a big fluffy head and pretty good lacing.

S - Interesting. Strong Columbus hops, which makes this smell slightly different from most IPAs. Sort of a toasted mix of dankness and pine. Almost a little garlic-y.

T - A very unique taste. Strong hop flavors - dank, resin, pine, spice, a little pepper and mild citrus flavors. It's quite a mix that is honestly a little strange. There is a nice malty (caramel) backbone as well.

M - Medium bodied, nice carbonation, a little bit of a spice in the finish.

O - Abita's Jockamo IPA is an interesting IPA. It has a unique strong and spicy Columbus hop profile which might not be everyone's cup of tea.

Picked up bottles and poured into a glass. maybe people just don’t like columbus hops who are rating this beer, cause it is loaded with them. Nice clear reddish copper pour with a good amount of head. Dank spicy columbus on the nose. Maybe a little heavy on the malts as it tries to balance the large hop profile. I think it’s a solid beer when fresh. Not generally a fan of Abita, but think this is a nice ipa.

Bottled: Unknown (single bottle purchase)

Poured into an american flag laden pint glass.

A: clear light honey coloring, with a wispy white head that dissipates quickly

S: A light aroma of sweetness detected. Nothing else in particular, so rather simple.

T: A medium intensity blunt effect bitterness that covers the whole tongue but much like the head, dissipates quickly. The hops not being so intense results in rather drinkable beer. There is little to no lingering flavor for every sip, as one might expect (or want) with other hoppier IPAs.

M: lacking crispness in flavor, the carbonation is decent, so it all drinks well.
