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.

First had: on tap at Casey's, Newtown Square, PA

Served in a nondescript pint glass, this beer poured a clear golden brown color with a small creamy cap of white head that retained fairly well. Aroma of grains, pale malts, caramel, and some floral hop qualities. Taste followed the aroma pretty closely, with a good balance of caramel malts and floral hops, pretty smooth and not too bitter, with a little buttery flavor happening in the background...not sure if this was an off taste or not. Hints of fruit juice and citrus zest. Medium body, smooth, fairly drinkable, but nothing too special going on.

Poured this American IPA from a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass. This AIPA poured a clear amber copper color, produced a nice froathy ivory colored head. Head retention is excellent and lacing is off the charts. The aroma of this AIPA is sweet, full of malted caramel toasted grain, piney citrus aromas from the hops. This ale is medium in body sweet caramel malt, flavor of clover honey, grapefruit and pine. Somewhat bitter, and dry finish. The mouthfeel is a little thin for my liking but it makes an excellent session beer.

look: 2.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 3

A: Pours a reddish honey color, somewhat cloudy with under a finger of white head. No lacing, next to no film.

S: Not sure about this. Has a sweet honey-like scent with caramel and citrus. Has an over ripe quality to it. It isn't bad, but sort of weird.

T: Largely follows the nose. The honey flavor is here throughout, but the citrus hops and caramel, bready malts do a better job of showing themselves in the taste. There's a spicy quality to this as well.

M: A nice, medium body. Not as dry or bitter as you'd expect from an IPA.

O: This isn't a terrible beer, but I can certainly see some finding this off putting. At the end of the day, this isn't quite what I'm looking for in an IPA and probably won't purchase again.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass.

Pours medium copper with a smidge of white foam. Partially see thru. Strong pine smell, definitely hoppy. Light malty hoppy taste. Oily hop. Floral notes. Bitter fades out on the close. Sneaky spicy. Good.
