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: Warm copper with a bit of amber hue. Bright and clear with quite a few bubbles rising to the cream-colored, medium-size head. Retains quite well & leaves a good bit of lace.

S: Nice hop mix – grapefruit, soft pine, citrus peel, tropical fruit, & zesty spice. Background caramel malt sweetness. Not super forward, but aromatic enough. Gets increasingly grassy with time, along with a bit more pine.

T: Hops are far, far more coarsely grassy in the palate – almost exclusively. A small herbal hint is added – especially through the middle, but most of the nice mix from the aroma are gone entirely or ghost remnants. Bitterness is soapy and also slightly astringent. Finally some pine, spice, & earthy resin show through in the finish, but they still fight with the odd soapy, coarse grassy aspect. Distractingly odd. Malts are at least balanced – toasty grain, bready & crackery with hints of caramel and sweetness.

M: Barely above medium body, but it seems bigger from the expansive yet soft textured carbonation. A few dextrins to chew & some hop tannin texture. Semi-sweet open is quickly pushed aside by hop drying.

D: An okay beer, but not really an IPA. If the hops flavor were more what is in the aroma, then it would be pretty good. But it would still need to be more hoppy (more bitter, more flavor & character, and a bit more strength to the aroma) to really seem an IPA. It seems to be more of a sort of odd Pale.

Pours a clear, dark shade of amber with an off white head that retains well. There are aromas of malt and citrus and pine from the hops. The taste is sweet and the hop bitterness comes in immediately to provide a balanced sip. This is a medium bodied beer that goes down very easily. This is a pretty solid beer.

Clean, clear amber, with a substantial off-white head. Extensive and deep lace. Superb.

Nose is mild hops, citrus and herbal in tone. Subtle.

Flavor is pine hops, with some orange in there. Body is medium, almost sticky in mouthfeel.

Overall, a steady and enjoyably balanced IPA. It's not a hop-bomb by any means, but quite enjoyable nonetheless.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 4

Appearance: Pretty dark IPA. Brown-orange overall.

Smell: Almost smells like hot pepper in the bite. Biscuit-like malt as well.

Taste/Mouthfeel: Pretty subdued IPA. Nice pepper notes to go with cookie malt. Mouthfeel is pretty watery though.

Drinkability: I like this. It could be better though.
