Jockamo IPAJockamo IPA

Brewed by:
Abita Brewing Co.
Louisiana, United States

Style: American IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.50%

Availability: Year-round

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.

Wow, this is disappointing. I like some good malt in a beer, but for an IPA this just didn't have enough hops going on. The mouthfeel was too thin, and the slight citrus flavor supposedly from the hops didn't offer much at all. This actually came out more sweet than bitter, and was probably intended to appease those who stumble upon it not actually looking for an IPA. The smell consists of some malt and hops (again, citrus) and like the taste is quite bland. This beer wasn't offensive, but it was probably the worst IPA I've ever had.

Bottle poured into snifter

A- poured copper color with two fingers of light tan head that dissipated quickly little to no lacing

S- smells of sweet malt very light hop smell not like a typical ipa

T- strong malt profile with light floral hop bite at end, much more hop than other reviews led me to expect. Nothing special but not a bad ipa.

M- medium body and light carbonation crisp hop finish, leaves the mouth a little dry.

O- not a bad ipa but definitely not the best worth the try.
