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.

Perhaps a fresher bottle, or this flavour combination just suits my personal palate better than other BA’s, as I found this bottle a pleasant surprise - glad to have bought 6.

Pours a clear, orange amber with limited head and minimal lacing. Not a lot of carbonation in the mouthfeel, but by no means flat. Tropical fruits and caramelized malts in the aroma, with quite a unique flavour profile. A sweet beginning transitions abruptly to an earthy, bitter finish - almost pineapple/mango directly to astringent. Quite different, but I like it!

Poured clear amber with a frothy head.

Pine and earthy malt in the nose.

Sweet malt, tangerine, juniper, and earthy and grassy hops. A very unique flavor profile -- more dank than fresh. Juniper notes instead of pine is interesting, but seemed to sharply constrast with typical citrus notes and grassy flavors.

Mouthfeel seemed a little weak and undercarbonated to me.

Not sure this really connected with my personal flavor preferences, an interesting mix of flavors that didn't really do it for me. Unique though, I could definitely pick this out of a lineup.

Ba Review #179
Served On: 06/28/2012
Glassware: Duvel Glass
Labeled ABV: 6.5%
Date/ Code: -

This was in the 2012 spring mixed 12 pack.

Look: Poured a brilliant copper color with some impressive head lacing from a thin beige film. Carbonation bubbles were a little sparse, but were noticeable. The clarity was probably the strongest quality in the appearance.

Smell: Onion skin and some sweet malts. The aroma could remind you of Oskar Blues Deviant Dale.

Taste: First off was a pungent garlic that could make your eyes water. Then a sweet hint of malt carried into a lingering bitterness. A residual sweetness seemed to return just before the palate went clean. Mouth feel was very smooth and worked well with the intense oniony character of hops. Very complex and very interesting for a lighter IPA.

I found this to be a very unique IPA with the complexity of a Deviant Dales, yet with the drink ability of a SN Torpedo. For a single IPA, this was amazing.
