Abita Brewing Co.
Louisiana, United States

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.

I can't seem to find a date on this bottle. I am assuming it's fresh based on the comments of the stocking associate at Lukas. He recommended the beer as I asked for something a little different.

A - The beer pours a translucent golden amber color. A nice 2 finger white bubbly head which slowly fades to a thin film that lasts throughout. Nice lacing. Looks good.

S - The aroma is a mix between a malty grainy bready sweetness and a earthy almost onion-type hop character. Not as strong as I would have preferred and somewhat subdued. A twirl didn't seem to do much to help. Fairly average.

T - After a disappointing nose the flavor of the beer was much more pleasing. The beer starts with a citrus floral sweetness. A slight toasted caramel malt type flavor arrives along with a mild bitterness. Fairly well balanced. Finishes fairly fruity, mild bitter, and crisp.

M - Light bodied and solid carbonation.

O - Overall a solid offering from a new brewery for me. Not the greatest American IPA but not bad at all.

Note: This review was a re-post from my former account, jmkratt, which was hacked and I lost all my reviews...sorry for the redundancy.

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.
