Jockamo IPAJockamo IPA

Brewed by:
Abita Brewing Co.
Louisiana, United States

Style: American IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.50%

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 clear copper with a fluffy, thick beige head.

S: Aromas of pine, peppermint, and sage dominate the nose. The smell is not all that unpleasant, but there is very little depth here.

T: Notes of caramel, brown sugar, biscuits, minerals, cedar, pine, peppermint, sage, and grapefruit are present on the palate. The finish is thin with mint, pine, and brown sugar notes. Compared to many American IPAs, this one is extremely sweet.

M: Light to medium in body and fairly dry. Carbonation is initially crisp, but everything falls apart toward the finish, as this ale moves from crisp and dry to flabby and watery.

O: This IPA does not impress me. The flavor profile is too sweet and the mouthfeel could really use some work. I doubt that I'll be revisiting this one.

Pours a brown/orange color w/ a one finger cocoa head. Lots of large bubbles on top of this one. Decent carbonation on my snifter glass. The nose is bizarre: grass, honey, dirt, some spices. It's mediocre at best. The taste is the same way.... Hmmm. Feel is somewhat flat and syrup like. Overall, this is a very mediocre beer and I won't buy it again. Cheers.

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a Bell's tulip.

Nice color and head. Reddish copper with just enough head to top off the glass. Already getting the aroma though and not really pleased. It's an odd mix of hops and butter. Gotta be diacetyl.

Taste is deep bitter and butterscotch. I would chalk this up as a bad bottle or batch except that others have noted the buttery taste, too. I can only imagine that they're going for this. Either that or we all got the same batch.

I really don't think I'm going to finish this. I'm glad I just got one as part of a mix-a-six. And before you criticize the mix, yes, I checked dates. It was not the freshest, but it was decent, maybe a couple of months old.
