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.

Copper-bronze clear body, not much carbonation on sight. No pale ale is actually pale these days, but this is still a little dark. Mild pine and sweet malt on the nose. Much more of the hops on the tongue, predominantly pine, only slight citrus notes. Malt in the background. Pretty bitter. Floral finish. Carbonation finally shows up on the palate, slightly stabbing.
They didn't 'go for it'. Not very expressive of the hops; full flavored but not layered or complex. Not a bold beer in any sense; milquetoast, yet enjoyable.

Really nice head on this beer (poured from a bottle), actually one of the longer lasting heads from an IPA I've encountered. Herbal smell with orange notes. Taste also of oranges and spices. Almost a watery mouthfeel; the hops hit you near the end and linger in the sinuses.

Overall, I agre with the "okay" rating on BA. Its definately a weirder IPA and unique. I would almost categorize it as a "Red IPA" if I had to and the spicey hops work well in it. The body of the beer just needs work.

First bottle from my Abita party pack. Poured into a pint glass. Beautiful color. A mix of golden and ruby hues. Smell is remini"scent " of hops but not nearly as as strong as id like with almost zero detectable undertones. Taste is similar. Vaguely hoppy with very little or none of the citrus and grassy notes that make ipas so great. Very smooth for an ipa and would probably pair with a wider variety of foods than a more traditional one. Overall decent but not nearly as pronounced as I'd like it to be. Its mildness would make it good for someone who has not had an ipa before.

Man. This is a malt bomb of epic proportions. Weird, syrupy. Nope.
